More Muslims injuring young girls for having the audacity to pursue an education.

This lunacy happened again.

About 150 Afghan schoolgirls were poisoned on Tuesday after drinking contaminated water at a high school in the country’s north, officials said, blaming it on conservative radicals opposed to female education.

What is there to say?  Stories like this are coming out all the time.  But no amount of them will ever seem to convince the “nice” (read: passive aggressive) atheists that Islam is bad for the world.  I have no need to comment on how terrible this is, we all already know.

Instead, all I can do is once again invite the apologists for Islam to come and tell me why I shouldn’t think Islam is barbaric.  All they can ever say is that there are Muslims in the world who ignore the sexism of their scriptures.  Good!  They all should, for their scriptures are evil.  Without Islam, we’d still have people who think women deserve an equal opportunity at education, but we wouldn’t have the throwing of acid into the faces of women who want an education and we sure as shit wouldn’t have people poisoning young girls for the crime of learning.

The “beauty” the apologists of religion, including Islam, use to defend the faith actually belongs to humanity.  The irony is that they use that beauty to whitewash the horrors against humanity to which Islam owns the deeds.
