Many Liberals Defend Islam the Way Conservatives Defend Guns

Following the horrific attack in Paris, France on Friday, there was no shortage of opinions to be found on the matter. Before most people knew much about the heartbreaking details concerning the attack, I found myself engulfed in debates with two very different groups of people: Liberals defending Islam. Conservatives defending guns. That’s when I […]

Humanity Will Always Live in Chaos as Long as Organized Religion Persists

I think I’ve absolutely hit my limit with this “debate,” because it gets us absolutely nowhere. Recently, Bill Maher has made waves by publicly condemning Islam.
