Nicky Morgan Wants Schoolchildren Taught That Britain Is Mainly A Christian Country
And so they shoulld, because it is.
With an established church, Britain is a Chrstian country by law.
It would be extremely churlish to move to a country then ask that it change to suit you.  
That would be like marrying a Christian THEN insisting that they convert to something else.
Those who do not wish to live in a Christian country are not required to stay.

Richard Dawkins Responds To New Statesman Writer's Accusations Of 'Islamophobia'
He might also walk out on an interview with a Pastafarian, refusing to accept that the Flying Spaghetti Monster was a real god. Would that make him a Pastaphobe?

Not buying the miricles that a given religion believes in does not make one a "phobe"." If I do not believe that Moses parted the Red Sea, it does not make me an Anti-Semite nor a Christianophobe.

Explosive Documentary Links Peyton Manning, Major Athletes To Doping Ring
Nearly every NFL player takes pain killers. 
If that is not use of a performance-enhancing drug, then nothing is.

Migrant Children Explain Why They Traveled To The U.S. Alone
The main reason they come alone is because no one, not even their parents, care what happens to them. If they make it across Mexico it is just one more mouth for the US branch of the family to feed; if they die en route, problem solved. Either way they are no longer a burden at home, whether to the family or the country.

We have stuffed our country. Open your doors so we can stuff yours too.

Video Of Israeli Extremists Mocking Death Of Palestinian Girl Sparks OutrageSee if we can get Cruz to say the words: Radical Jewish Terrorists

U.S. Planning Operation To Deport Central American Families

Immigrants should only have to follow those laws that they find convenient. 
Any laws or court orders that they do not like should simply not be obeyed. 
We have to teach these people that there are no consequences if they ignore our laws and our courts!

Muslim Community 'Making Less Than 10%'Of Referrals I understand the problem. There are some 80 million gun owners in the USA and 12,000 gun homicides each year, yet fewer than 10% of irresponsible gun owners are referred to the police by the gun-owning community. 

The majority of referrals come from schools and businesses, which is breeding is distrust and disillusionment amongst American gun owners

David Cameron's 'Christian' Christmas Message Attacked
These folk must have missed the fact that the UK has an established religion. That is, the country is Christian (indeed Anglican) by law. 
     Secularism is a good idea, ignorance is not. 
     I blame our education system.

Labour Brands Help To Work Scheme A 'Cruel Joke'

The jobless claimants were NOT made to carry out unpaid work such as clearing up litter and graffiti in order to get their benefits. If they worked and were paid benefits, the work was not unpaid.
    Okay, I agree that it is cruel to call the scheme "help to work" if they are not helped to find work. 
    It should be called "work to earn" and they should just be required to do the work to get the money. Simply divide their benefits by the minuimum wage (or even by the living wage, if you like) and that will yield the number of hours of community service they should perform to warrant receiving their benefits.

Seven Children Drown Off Greek Island On Way To Europe

I am not certain how this Turkish refugeee crisis is allowed to contnue, with ruthless traffickers allowed to operate openly, profiting massively by assisting in the invasion of Greece.  
Why does Greece not load up ferries and take them all back to Turkey?

Immigration Officials To Launch Large-Scale Deportation Raids
What? They are going to enforce our laws? How dare they! Don't they realize that undocumented people have the right to violate any of our laws that they fiind inconvenient? 
     Looks like Obama is continuing his streak of deporting more illegals than any US president and lowering the numbet of illegals entering the USA more than any president. You would think he believes in the rule of law or something.

Cuban adjustment: Migrants talk why they're coming to America
"...economic opportunity, not political refuge, is why they are coming..."
Oh. Well that's okay if they are Cuban.
But if they are Mexican or Honduran, NO WAY!
Why? Well Oh shut up!

How do we reconcile today’s divergent voices of Islam?
We do not reconcile them. 
The KKK claimed to be Christian. They were not.'
The IRA and UDF calimed to be Christian.  They were not.
The Wahabis claim to be Muslim. They are not.
The Jihadis claim to be Muslim when they are the antithesis of Muslim: 
     the Jihadis are moharebeh, enemies of Islam and enemies of Allah.

White Man's Alleged Bomb Plot Against Muslims 
We need to find out how and where this guy was radicalized and why white people aren't doing more to condemn him and stop this kind of radical caucasian terrorism. It is the responsibility of the white community to work with police to identify these individuals so they can be put on a watch list.

Transgender Equality A 'Totemic' Issue Of Our Time
Please also stand up for transracials: those who are a different race to the one they are given at birth. And for the transagers: those who are a different age than the amount of years they have been alive.

Richard Dawkins Accuses Pope Francis Of 'Religious Gullibility' Over Mother Teresa"...history's most fondly remembered missionaries."
    With today's short attention span, 18 year's ago is about all of the history we can remember. No? Okay, other than Albert Schweitzer, name three missionaries from history.

Is Critical Thought Being Suppressed In Scotland?

Critical thinking has disappeared in most places, so why should Scotland be any different?
If you didn't know that anything bad is ALWAYS someone else's fault, I don't know where you have been for the past decade. 
      Okay, the Selfish National Party is at the acme of this philosophy, but they are a long way from the only proponents. Look at all the UK laws that are "the EU's fault". Look at all the pollution caused by making things we buy and throw away that are some big coorporation's fault. Look at all the criticism of companies that only pay the taxes that our laws require them to pay. The SNP has no monopoly here.

Time for Germanic Americans to stand up against hamburgers and frankfurters. 
Time for Mexican Americans to stand up against chilli.
But, on a college campus, Italian Americans will never have the courage to stand up against pizza. They would be slaughtered where they stood.

The Australian Newspaper Slammed For 'Racist' Cartoon Of Indians Eating Solar Panels
As most humor relies on belittlng someone, best never to have a cartoon depicting any ethnicity at all. 
       It is much less racist simply to state that Indians are breeding like rabbits, which is the main cause of climate change, that their government is openly encouraging the growth of green-house gas emissions and that the average Indian is too ignorant of the issues to care very much. Of course, saying so in this way is not very funny.

Why $1.38 A Week Is At The Heart Of The War For The Democratic Party
There is a war for the heart of the Democratic party? 
How many have died so far?

Some Muslim Americans Irritated By Obama's Call For Them To 'Root Out' Extremism
"We would never ask any other faith community to stand up and condemn acts of violence committed by people within their groups"
That is simply not true.
If people commit violence in the name of a faith community, we ask that community to stand up and condemn those acts. We asked all Catholics and Protestant to stand up and condemn the IRA and the UDF. We asked all whites to stand up and condemn the KKK. We asked all pro-life groups to condemn anti-abortion violence, such as the Colorado Springs shootings.
Muslims do not get a free pass here and, given that Muslim terrorists kill mostly Muslims, it is in thier own interest not to have one,      
If people are killing in your name, it behooves you not only to stand up and condemn them, but to actively assist law enforcement in finding them. It can only help the image of Muslims if we get a few stories about how the Muslim community helped bring terrorists to justice.
Donald Trump’s comments escalate GOP rhetoric on Muslims
The Reinhard Heydrich of the Republican Party, this bigot is not as ignorant as he pretends.
     He knows that 95% of all Muslims are opposed to the jihadis, and that many Muslim countries have no terrorists at all, but he thinks that open bigotry wins votes. Sadly, he is not wrong

Obama urges Americans to 'not succumb to fear' in fight against Isis
It is tough not to, when the usual stalwarts of a brave and proud America (the Republicans) have turned into lily-livered, yellow-bellied cowards.

Yale Faculty Member Who Wrote Controversial Halloween Email Stops Teaching
Looks like the Donald Trumps of the student world got to her.

'Pampered teenagers': Ted Cruz condemns Princeton campus protesters
Cruz is right on so little, but even a blind hog finds an acorn once in awhile.
     The sanitation of history, the modern equivalent of book burning, is something we normally expect from Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia or Maoist China. It is unexpected to see such conservative positions from kids on US college campuses.
     Whether they are fairly described as "pampered" or not depends on who is paying their tuition and expenses: some certainly are pampered (at Princeton, perhaps even most), but the kids on student loans are most defintely NOT pampered.

Why is France a target? Look to its alienated Muslim youth

The idea that Muslims in Europe are radicalized because they are poor, badly educated and jobless is simply not bourne out by the facts. Almost all of the western-born Muslims who have perpetrated terrorist attacks in the west have been affluent, well educated and working at a job.
It is true that France(indeed most of Europe) has done little to integrate Muslims into the culture and community of France. The Muslim authorities (Imams, elected representatives, whatever) have done even less to foster such integration - they tend to focus on the differences of their community rather than on their common humanity with the rest of their country.

U.S. governors don’t have power to refuse refugees access to their states

Do they have the authority to ban all white christian males from any schools, as the mass school shootings have been perpetrated by white christian males

Oil Industry Faces CollapseDon't hold your breath. 
As long as you and I and all of our neighbours keep buying fossil fuels, these companies will do just fine

ExxonMobil, Columbia University Clash Over Student Journalists' Reports
The Columbia dean, whose book indicates a clear bais against Exxon-Mobil, thinks it is okay for Columbia journalists to question the professional conduct and integrity of Exxon, but seems quite upset that Exxon might dare to question the professional conduct and integrity of Columbia journalists?
       Is this what they mean by the entitlement generation?
They are already coming to Britain to kill us, Ken
Do you think hiding under the bed will help.

Prince Charles' Interview Demands Labelled 'North Korea Style Censorship'
John Snow usually uses interviews to air his own opinions, to prove that he is a "tough journalist" and to demean the interviewee. I take it he was afraid that he would not be able to get away with this kind of behaviour under the Clarence House Rules.

Charlotte Church Tells MPs To Forget Asking Cameron For An Apology 
Dickhead is an extremely sexist remark; the equiavlent of c#nt-face.
Where is the outrage?

Physicists Explain Why Everyone Is Wrong About That Downed Russian Military Jet
7.5 seconds, implies the Turks issued a warning every 0.75 seconds. (Well, a bit less if the 1st warning was just before the jet entered Turkish airspaccee).   Even acceping the Turkish explanation of 17 seconds, that still means a warning every 2 seconds or less.
      Has anyone heard the tapes of these warnings yet?
