Never pass up a chance to sit down or relieve yourself. -old Apache saying

kudos, Iceland!

OK, this story is not entirely "new" but it escaped my attention when it was first released, and about all I can say is "it's about time!!" I think I have to put Iceland on my bucket list.


Iceland Declares Christianity A Public Health Hazard

The island country of Iceland has officially 
declared Christianity a public health hazard. 
The law proclaiming the radical idea was 
signed recently by *Prime Minister 
Sigur├░ur Ingi J├│hannsson in the spirit of 
“protecting the elderly from scams, our 
children from nightmares, and the 
general population from chicanery.”

As strong as the law’s language is, 
it does 
not restrict the free exercise of religion 
by any citizen or visitor.

A coalition of Lutherans, Catholics, 
and other Christian sects have formed 
an organization to combat the image 
that they contribute to the erosion of 
psychological well-being.

“Yes, certain rogues have used 
Christianity to fleece the old and give 
hellish nightmares to the young,” 
explained Reverend Andrew Canard. 

“However, faith requires the 
acknowledgment of not knowing and 
we can all agree simplistic and often 
contradictory answers found in the 
Bible are the answers to not knowing.”

The new law urges Icelandic society to, 
“pick up a book” and to “engage fellow 
human beings in the spirit of compassion 
regardless of creed.” It also calls for 
research to determine the best path to 
promote Humanist values around the world.

This is NOT a witch hunt

Pro-reason activists hail the recent events 
as a victory against superstition. Some local 
Catholics are calling the measure a “witch 
hunt.”

“A witch hunt is where a mob attacks the 
weakest members of society and prosecutes 
them typically via a sham trial. The mob 
then executes the poor soul. The last time 
I checked, the Catholic Church were the 
undisputed champions of the world in such 
games for centuries,” stated an anonymous 
citizen.

American Republican Presidential hopefuls 
are calling the events transpiring in Iceland 
“dangerous” and wonder if such a brazen 
act of divine disobedience may mean that 
the country is not fit to be in NATO.

Both Democratic candidates are afraid to 
point out that the predominantly Muslim 
country of Turkey is, well, a predominantly 
Muslim country because they would be 
branded as “egg-heads.”
