Video of the day -- the religious menace
A reminder that the religious menace is global in scope. This video is a couple of years old, but perhaps more topical than ever in view of the recent Malala Yousafzai shooting.
And don't let anyone use the barbarism of Islam to obfuscate the fact that Christianity too is lethally malignant when it's still taken seriously, as the Savita Halappanavar case shows -- this is the kind of thing Republican policies would bring about here. Western culture is superior not because it's Christian (it isn't, and hasn't been for generations) but because it's secular.
