More religious people killing each other over religion, for religious reasons, because it's religion.  In Egypt.

A lot has been made of Libya's announcement that they will subscribe to Sharia law, and get rid of some laws conflicting with Sharia.  WTF did people expect?  They'd put on Mickey Mouse ears and say they wanted Christian values and sing Kumbaya?

I think a "Religion in the News" section would be a good idea. :angel:

Why did it still not become a reality? I really think it would organize the boards more regarding just more of the miscellaneous religious articles that are around the Internet. And I'm pretty sure more people are interested than shown.

Off-topic: Not shocked to find that Libya and Egypt have religious conflicts and mandates they want to implement. Sad. There is a Huffington post article (I think that was it, or maybe it's another news source) that was discussing the only possibilities for Egypt would either be a secular country or Islam. 'Guess we all know which one the people of Egypt want, despite the fact that it can cause further conflict.

Well, they think they want an islamic one, obviously.  Make the other trouble-making religions illegal, then have the various Islamic sects duke it out with suicide bombers and midnight hit squads, like in Iraq.

Just like the Christian-only U.S.A that the Republicans want.

Kabul (CNN) -- The ordeal of Gulnaz did not simply begin and end with the physical attack of her rape. The rape began a years-long nightmare of further pain, culminating in an awful choice she must now make.

...

In Afghanistan, this brought her not sympathy, but prosecution. Aged just 19, she was found guilty by the courts of sex outside of marriage -- adultery -- and sentenced to twelve years in jail.

When I was in Saudi Arabia, I did notice that they all drove like insane idiots.

Now I'm left to wonder what they were all doing besides driving that made them so erratic, and would make them think that women would automatically lose their virginity from operating a motor vehicle.

There is ALWAYS something in the news involving stupid religious people doing stupid things for their stupid religions.

There is now a new Religion in the News board.

Please post all the news stories about religion there.
