Immorally taking offence: A manipulation…to try to prevent those with different views…freely expressing their opinions on established faulty ideas and beliefs…

"It is unreasonable to sacrifice freedom of expression for fear of offending someone. If you believe that someone should not be allowed to act a certain way because it offends you, then you are an intolerant bigot. You are arrogantly assuming that you have the authority to decide what is right and wrong, and that you have the authority to impose your values on others.

Anyone who believes that ideas should not be expressed if they might offend someone is an advocate of censorship, and censorship of ideas is intellectual slavery. People sacrifice the freedom of their selves and others to promote a rigid set of rules and customs (as determined by religion, tradition, culture, etc.) that they believe to be immune to criticism, and then expect the rest of the world to conform to their values so that they will not be offended.” http://www.wowhead.com/forums&topic=203855/you-cant-say-that-because-it-offends-me

Our multinational industrial complexes

Which art in-touchable

Hallowed be thy names

Thy kingdoms come

Thy will be done

On earth, as it is, in Congress…

“I know you get tired of my thank yous but I really appreciate the simple truths you put out. Atheism isn’t scary when it’s a welcoming community. I was a doubtless believing xtian with complete faith and guilt until I took the challenge on your blog. I feel great about my new thought processes and how I deal with daily life. What’s better I am talking about how I got here and helping others come to their senses. Thanks. I fucking love atheism.”
