Punishing the Victim

This is a sick, twisted world that clearly needs to change: The 19-year-old victim was sentenced last year to 90 lashes for meeting with an unrelated male, a former friend from whom she was retrieving photographs.

Letter from hell!

Over on GodTube, Pharyngula has pointed out this video of a letter by a kid in hell. Yes, it’s a dramatic reading of a fictional young unbeliever about to get tortured forever.
