Deuteronomy has the answer to such violence.

Wednesday, 26 August, 2015, 07:48 AM - WinkettToday I'd like to ask a really important question. I may not be entirely sure what the question is, but I am sure that Saint Ignatius of Loyola has the answer.
Tuesday, 25 August, 2015, 07:48 AM - FraserAnd the Big News today from a Faith Perspective, the question that everybody's asking, is how do we pray properly?

Now I'm not one to show off about Shakespeare, I wasn't going to mention him at all, but seeing as he is in the news, I'd just like to say Hamlet, Henry V, Benedict Cumberbatch, The Merry Wives of Windsor.
Like Shakespeare, I think people are too much in awe of the Big Book of Magic Stuff. I'd also like to say the word "erotic".

Why would you ‘demand‘ those of us who absolutely do find religion to be fundamentally offensive, and who are told we will be tortured for non-belief, as well as critics threatened across World for ‘offending‘ those beliefs that we must simply ‘respect‘ those religions?
Let's hope that by the time he becomes PM he's learned to de-confuse racism and secularism.
