    Earlier this month, a picture of an Atheist Republic gathering in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia went viral, leading to a government crackdown. This is a nation that, in theory, celebrates the freedom […]

    • @OP – Malaysian Police Official:
      Atheists Have To Stop Causing Anxiety Among Muslims

      Or more precisely: – Atheists Have To Stop Causing Anxiety Among Muslim GOD-DELUSIONS – according to Malaysian Police Official’s GOD-DELUSION!

      People existing without being under the control of a god-delusion!! Horrors! 🙂
      Next atheists will be scaring god-delusions into apoplectic fits, at the thought of their host humans expelling them into oblivion and living without them!!!

    • I know this is just the way of the world sadly, but still never cease to be perplexed by adults, ostensibly educated adults, make comments like “atheists need to stop making muslims anxious.” Yikes, because their faith is weak or they cannot prevail in the marketplace of ideas. Of course it is, but are these government officials so lacking in self-awareness that they make these comments publicly?

    • @Huckleberry,

      but still never cease to be perplexed by adults, ostensibly educated adults, make comments like “atheists need to stop making muslims anxious.”

      I would be more comforted if I thought this was just happening among the deluded religious but there are plenty of examples of this on the regressive left as well. Religion provides us with this dangerous version where people are arrested, jailed, beaten or even killed, but I’m not so sure the west hasn’t given up on the market place of ideas. We need a another Renaissance.

    • Ha! The most anxious of moslems are probably those with the least faith, they really know it’s just a few thousand year old con trick.
      Most likely these government officials themselves.

      It’s only going to get worse for them, eventually a tipping point will be reached and suddenly followers will be leaving in droves.

      The more government has to enforce belief, the less anyone will belive anymore.
      The whole point of faith is it just happens you can’t make someone have faith just by threats, even if they pretend they do.

      This whole story shows religion on the back foot and to me is good news. The only negative is the fact so many theocracies are so desperate to cling to power in the way they do, that many people are hurt by their actions.

    • The religious just can’t stand the Atheists living happily without their invisible crutch.
