Evils of Religion: 18 December 2011

Use of violence in marriage as the norm is something you only find in religion these days. There’s the fucking quiverful movement, of course, but there are whole nations built up around Sharia, where beating your wife is considered necessary. I’m less familiar with this area, so I’m going to hand you over to Maryam Namazie now.

Marc, kindly take this post — the link to which I will email to you — as a formal, legally binding, 100% certified style invitation to snort my taint.

This has to be one of the funniest things, ever.
