BREAKING: Supreme Court Backs Ban on Partial Birth Abortion Procedure!!!

Well this was the most under reported event due to the VT Massacre. Never the less it didn’t stop Digg and other sites to bring it up. And boy did they talk about what this means. 600+ comments on this item. Considering that there are only 1300+ votes on something that has 600+ comments, you know right away there was a debate going on in the comment section.

Digg link pick quote :

The Supreme Court upheld the nationwide ban on a controversial abortion procedure Wednesday. The 5-4 ruling said the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act that Congress passed and President Bush signed into law in 2003 does not violate a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion.

Classical Muslim Eroticism « Ali Eteraz

Classical Muslim Eroticism « Ali Eteraz

Is she really singing in this? No. Why start out this blog post by saying that? because it really caught me off guard that she started lip syncing the song. Anyway, the blog post on Ali Eteraz is about what is called the Mujra. He also goes on to say that subtly of the original dance has given way to moving breasts.

Today, it is a degraded artform by many of its new, illiterate, untutored, and perverse practitioners where subtlety has been sacrificed for the sake of bouncing breasts. However, that was not always the case, and Meena Naz performs a mujra in the way I have always thought a Mujra was danced. Watch the way her head bounces left to right at minute 1:56 (3:55 if time shows in reverse).

 He also goes on to say that this is an authentically “Islamic” form of eroticism. Includes a video.

This Fatwa Targets Genies, Vampires, Mermaids, Phoenix Birds, Ghouls and Supernatural Beings « Ali Eteraz

I gonna use the same comment I made on the blog post at his site and that is WOW. It seems odd to do such a thing but maybe, as the author suggested, it is an attempt to stop people from thinking these things exist. 10 comments so far (including mine).

Atheists give free hugs to fellow students; jerk says they’re hellbound

I think the most interesting part of this digg link post is the google ads next to it. The-end.com, Novelty Bag.com selling Christian t-shirts, ezraweb which seems to be a web 2.0 for Christians (good idea) and bronagainpeoplemeet.com

Click the link for the comments, come away with some interesting links to Christian sites. Thanks Google!!!

Digg link pick quote:

“Free Hugs from Atheists” event was confronted by crazy-ass preacher who refused to be hugged and condemned them all to Hell. Way to show the Christian Love, Frank!

Featured Comment RSS: Muslim Woman Re-Translates Koran with Feminist View » Netscape.com

Muslim Woman Re-Translates Koran with Feminist View » Netscape.com

This is the first time I am posting about a featured comment RSS. I have had a few Featured Comment RSS articles, but I decided that whenever I add a new one from now on, I am going to make a corrisponding blob post about it.

The featured comment RSS comes from Netscape and the subject is Islam and women. As you may know, Islam is a hot topic these days for many reasons… so when a english speaking site or a mostly American user base gets their hands on a topic like this, it tends to get people to talk.

airglide says: “make the religion more friendly toward women.”

How does this really change anything? The premise of the koran is that in paradise the man has his harem. His wife on earth can compete for his favor with the other women. With the required circumcision of both genders, the woman gets to be a receptacle for a mans pleasure. It is still a mans religion.

…and the rebutal (well one anyway)

berbles  says, There are millions of single Muslim women that live on their own in America, Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Sweden, and the rest of Europe who maintain their devout beliefs based upon their own understanding of the Quran, obviously it is not strictly a “man’s” religion.

24 members battled it out with each other to make a grand total of 65 comments so far. Original story is here: today.reuters.com
