The fact that alleged ‘Good Christians’ are traveling on private planes and live an obscene life of luxury while this goes one is just evidence of how full of shit they really are regarding their alleged faith. If I ever get that rich, I plan to donate at least 50% of what I make to charity to support those less fortunate than myself… because it’s the right and humane thing to do and that’s all the motivation you should need.
If you think this statement is false… then prove it. Some of the people above have already presented sound evidence to back up their claims.
This was one thing Ben didn’t seem to grasp. Arguing the flaws of an organized religion is NOT racism. Sam Harris is right… Islam is not a race. It’s a creed… and creeds are fair game to be criticized. Maher was lucky to have Harris there with him to fend off Affleck’s off key rants. To spread a little reason into the dialogue instead of replying to rant with a rant.
Being offended doesn’t give you any ground in an argument and does not make the statement being said any less true. It just makes you look like an weakling and someone unwilling to hear other people’s views.
Or going to work sick because taking a day off means rent doesn’t get paid.
The absolute truth. Both of these statements
This is something that’s crossed my mind as well. I agree with the first comment: some people will not see a doctor if they’re showing symptoms until after work because they can’t afford a sick day. If you think I’m kidding, the real cause of the first Ebola fatality in US history was caused by the patient not being treated for three days after being sent home by a hospital in Texas. They’re not saying it, but we know why he was sent home: he was an African American with no insurance. Greed (and possibly racism) almost caused an outbreak in Texas. Shameful…

This isn’t a choice, it’s slavery. Sexist, misogynist, slavery. It is despicable. The fact that it’s going on in the 21st Century makes me sick.
Never be afraid to stand for the truth, even if you are doing it alone.
This is how women are treated by religion. How women allow themselves to be treated like cattle to the system is appalling. This is not choice, this is slavery.
We have the evidence to prove it. Yes, Evidence! Something religions are all ignorant of since they insist everyone take them on faith.
