Hey God, it is me, Merry. I hope you remember me, God – I spent about 50 or so years believing in you, and worshipping you.

I have just read a report of an eight year old Yemeni “bride” dying on her wedding night, at the hands of her forty year old husband, from internal injuries due to sexual trauma.

I can understand some people being offended by religious jokes, and indeed, by Atheitis and his general tone and style of commenting, but for pity’s sake, we are ADULTS.

As far as personal beliefs are concerned, I would say that most atheists do not give a rat’s patootie about your personal beliefs – so long as you don’t try to force your personal beliefs onto anyone else.

UMDM health officials attributed the increasing numbers of HIV teenage girls to “Sugar Daddies”. These “men” are not sweet, neither is there anything even remotely “fatherly” about them.

I thought that “friendly dialogue and debate” meant talking nicely to one another, no name calling, no attacks on other religions...

If you have left your sense of humour at home, or are thin-skinned, then please do not read any further… I have no wish to offend anyone.

I see some folk have been getting their knickers in a twist lately about what it means to be an atheist, so I thought I would share the knowledge I have gained on the subject

Many people appear to feel that the lack of religion in our school system is directly responsible for the lack of morality in general

I have been reading and enjoying the News24 forum for some time now. I finally joined the conversations in mid-September 2012. I have learned a lot during my time on News24.

It was only when I started reading the responses that I realised just how much of my personal pain had been transferred into the article.
