“Nice Atheism” is no longer going to work.
well, i think it is important to distinguish between people and ideologies. i refuse to respect hateful ideologies like most religions, so no “nice atheism” there. but as a default i’d say i am nice to people unless they are not nice to me 🙂
Last month, the government of Mauritania made the death sentence mandatory for apostasy (giving up Islam) and blasphemy.
At the moment, a blogger called Mohamed Cheikh Ould Mkhaitir is currently in jail for writing an article critical of Muhammad and Mauritania’s caste system. He was originally sentenced to death, but that was commuted to two years, already served, but he remains incarcerated.
How weak is the prophet of the Islamic god of the Mauritanians that he can’t handle any sort of criticism? How powerless is the Islamic god of the Mauritanians if he needs you to do his killing for him?
