Excommunication for having sex with your spouse.

http://exm.nr

This is not a cult? Yeah, right... Why is it "legal" for these people not to pay taxes and for activists not so much... We need to start a religion based on individual rights... (I know that defeats the purpose, it's just frustrating)

Atheists know more about religion than the religious

http://onfaith.washingtonpost.com

Atheists know more about religion than the religious

Why is anyone surprised at the findings of a new survey of American religious knowledge, released last week by the Pew Forum, which demonstrate that atheists and agnostics know more about religion than the religious do? The only religious groups comparable to atheists in general religious knowledge are Jews and Mormons. Atheists even know more about Christianity than American Christians.

Student punished for spaghetti beliefs

http://www.globalone.tv

Student punished for spaghetti beliefs

A student has been suspended from school in America for coming to class dressed as a pirate.

But the disciplinary action has provoked controversy – because the student says that the ban violates his rights, as the pirate costume is part of his religion.

Bryan Killian says that he follows the Pastafarian religion, and that as a crucial part of his faith, he must wear 'full pirate regalia' as prescribed in the holy texts of Pastafarianism.

THE AMISH DON'T GET AUTISM

http://healthwyze.org

The Amish do not experience autism, or any of the other learning disabilities that plague our technological society. The Amish live in a society that consists of outdated technologies and ideals, by contemporary standards. Their diet consists of eating organic, fresh, locally-grown produce, and of course, they do not follow the established vaccination routines.

Finally, private protection agencies with legal authority

http://www.counterpunch.org

FINALLY and thanks to Rudy Giuliani, private security can be purchased that has the full authority of the law. There are still a few details that separate this arrangement from truly voluntarist protection organizations. The officer is indemnified by the taxpayer, not the customer or the customer's insurance. They do have the ability to arrest, though, so it's close.

Occupy Wall Street is an Important Movement That .......

http://www.nextppl.com

"Today there is a feeling of deep poison running through the ideological veins of this nation. The ghettos of cable news have shown us, by 24-hour assault, what becomes of discourse when the conscientious majority becomes its target. Now is the time to reign in this malevolent power. For in the future, blunt intimidation will become its preferred faculty, and Americans will be forced to stand against tanks in the same way a man, tired and wanting for rest, stood against Chinese tanks in 1989."

When Atheism Turns Ugly

http://www.washingtonpost.com

Fanatical atheism is no worse and no better than fanatical religion, though it may be more bitterly ironic. There is something pretty odd, dare I say hypocritical, about a bunch of people who call themselves “freethinkers” and “humanists” not only verbally abusing people of faith, but actually tearing up verses from the Bible as an act of protest, as they did on a pier in Huntington Beach, California Saturday morning. It doesn’t sound terribly humane to me, and I am quite sure that destroying texts, however much one may object to them, is the opposite of free thought.

Bitcoin buyers throw good money after bad

http://www.marketwatch.com

The issue is whether Bitcoin will ever be so widely adopted that it acts like a real, stable currency. Right now, it’s more like a commodity with wild price swings on rumors, articles, anonymous chat-board postings, and well-publicized problems with theft. Most people should wait at least until those issues are resolved. Generally, however, average folks shouldn’t be making direct forays into currency trading; Bitcoin feels a bit like online investing, but it’s more like diving into foreign exchange with even less information on which to make currency calls.

Tea Party Muslims shatter all preconceptions

http://www.examiner.com

Muslims are defecting from both parties in droves because they have seen that they are both willing to throw them under the bus the moment it’s politically expedient. A portion of Muslims have become politically apathetic because they feel unrepresented, unwelcome and as if they are not part of society. But another portion of them are joining libertarian groups, agorist groups and voluntaryist groups.
