Pulling Back the Curtain

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 15, 2007

Jack E. Carlson blogs about atheism and theists response to atheism in his blog Radical Atheist:

The only thing that can open the mind of anyone about religion is disbelief. God is the wizard of Oz and atheists want to pull back the curtain. Once the sham is exposed, disbelief sets in. That cannot be allowed to happen. Churches, and especially their very human leaders, enjoy the good life. Their lust for wealth should be a red flag for the followers. But somehow they manage to justify this behavior to themselves. Blind faith is such an accurate term.

Muslim Solidarity

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 15, 2007

Naina, writing for the blog Sepia Mutiny, blogs about a New York Times article on Muslim solidarity in the U.S.:

There’s a really interesting article in the New York Times on the “uneasy” coalition that’s building between African American and immigrant Muslims in post-9/11 New York. Although I’m generally cynical of articles that tout people of color solidarity, I found this one to be fairly realistic and yet uplifting at the same time.

300

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 15, 2007

AradhanaD writes a movie review on 300 on her blog Leftist Looney Lunchbox:

The movie doesn’t even pretend to be anything but white supremacist, misogynist, islamophobic, ableist, or homophobic, in fact it prides itself on all these accounts. If we missed the homophobia at the beginning of the movie when King Leonidas briefly refers to Athenians as “Boy-loving philosophers”, we get it again ten-fold repeatedly throughout the movie.

Savagery at Salwan

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 15, 2007

Shivam Vij, a journalist based out of Dehli, posts an article he did on the sacking of the Dalit (Untouchable) settlements of Salwan in his blog National Highway:

The long road from Karnal city that leads to Pardeep’s village, Salwan, showcases some of rural India’s prosperous best. Spring is in the air and after every other wheat and mustard field there is a river body. Farmers proudly walk around fields with their women whose veils hide even their eyes. There are pucca houses and modern tractors and mobile phone towers. But there is a high-voltage line of caste not visible to the naked eye. If anyone steps on it, it can electrocute an entire village.
