As the days go by our hard won freedoms and liberty are slowly being eroded. In Europe a crushing blow has been made to freedom of speech with a European Court of Human Rights upholding a conviction for saying that the person known as Muhammad ten centuries ago was technically a paedophile based on information in historical texts. The statement was made in reference to Muhammad's marriage to a six year old child name called Aisha. The court found that “Presenting objects of religious worship in a provocative way capable of hurting the feelings of the followers of that religion could be conceived as a malicious violation of the spirit of tolerance, which was one of the bases of a democratic society.”. In giving its ruling that "Muhammad was not a worthy subject of worship" the court has additionally demonstrated a complete misunderstanding as to the religion involved which worships "Allah", a word meaning 'God', not 'Muhammad' who claimed to be a prophet of this god. Freedom of speech is dying.

    These are well-established historical facts:

    The only item in that list that is a well-established historical fact (as opposed to just found in some religious text) is the one about the ancient Greek men.

    There, I stated a handful of facts that impugn three major world religions

    No, you didn't. Two of your items don't state established facts, but religious myths that may or may not be based on actual facts. And for the one item that does state established facts: I'm not aware of any world religion that gives special religious significance to ancient Greek men.

    the pederasty "of the greeks" was pushed by socrates (or whichever one it was) within his school/cult and was only widespread in that school/cult. it was not appreciated by the rest of the population and was attacked and i think this Head Pederast was either exiled or killed or somethin'. acting like a high percentage of greek men were pederasts is just antiwhite propaganda.

      The parent post is just completely wrong. So inaccurate that only an islamophobic white supremacist could have written it. Stupid white people, and the horses they ride in on, if you get my drift.
