Most of our neighbours are the Sikhs & we have no trouble from any of them!

Comment by Stephen yesterday

CNN showed the story of Muslim cab drivers giving free lifts home from the concert and said how wonderful this action was. This was until it was pointed out to CNN that it was Sikh taxi drivers who did this.

The Sikh community of Manchester have really pushed out all the stops in helping people after the attack.

I'm hearing a lot more comments about the ''peaceful'' muslims stepping up to the plate & condemning the violence instead of sitting back & saying/doing nothing!

Save Ashwaq & Areej From Being Deported To Saudi Arabia

Ashwaq and Areej are two young Saudi sisters who sought asylum in Turkey in February 2017 from domestic abuse and the stranglehold of Saudi Arabian society on their dignity as women.


Yesterday, they were arrested by the Turkish police due to a slanderous formal complaint issued by their abusive parents. The Turkish immigration office is preparing to deport both sisters back to Saudi Arabia, back to their physically abusive parents, and back to a society that continues to malign and degrade them for being born a woman.

To make matters worse, if the sisters are returned to Saudi Arabia, they will be killed. Already there have been calls by family members and tribesmen to slaughter both sisters to protect the family honor. To make matters worse, earlier today, both girls were handed over to the immigration officers without the presence of their lawyer, and have not been seen of or heard from ever since. No one knows where they are!

Please sign and share this petition to raise awareness.

Also, please call and/or email the the Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu. Call the numbers below and demand to speak to these individuals.

We need to act quickly!

Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu - Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs
Ph: +90 (312) 292 10 00

This petition will be delivered to:
• Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs

College Freshmen Are Less Religious Than Ever

Data from a nationwide survey shows students who list their affiliation as "none" has skyrocketed

The number of college students with no religious affiliation has tripled in the last 30 years, from 10 percent in 1986 to 31 percent in 2016, according to data from the CIRP Freshman Survey. Over the same period, the number who attended religious services dropped from 85 percent to 69 percent. These trends provide a shapshot of the current generation of young adults; they also provide a preview of rapid secularization in the U.S. over the next 30 years.

Since 1966 the Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) has surveyed incoming college students about their backgrounds, beliefs, and attitudes, including questions about their religious preference and attendance at religious services. In 2016, they surveyed more than 137,000 first-time students at 184 colleges and universities in the U.S.

Figure 1 shows how the number of students whose religious preference is “None” has changed over time. The retreat from religion starts around 1990 and accelerates, averaging almost 1 percentage point per year.

In US, Belief in Creationist View of Humans at New Low

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The percentage of U.S. adults who believe that God created humans in their present form at some time within the last 10,000 years or so -- the strict creationist view -- has reached a new low. Thirty-eight percent of U.S. adults now accept creationism, while 57% believe in some form of evolution -- either God-guided or not -- saying man developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life.

This is the first time since 1982 -- when Gallup began asking this question using this wording -- that belief in God's direct creation of man has not been the outright most-common response. Overall, roughly three-quarters of Americans believe God was involved in man's creation -- whether that be the creationist view based on the Bible or the view that God guided the evolutionary process, outlined by scientist Charles Darwin and others. Since 1982, agreement with the "secular" viewpoint, meaning humans evolved from lower life forms without any divine intervention, has doubled.

Americans' Views on Human Creation Related to Education, Religious Preference

Higher education levels are associated with less support for creationism and higher levels of belief in the evolutionary explanation for human origins. Belief in creationism is 21% among those with postgraduate education versus 48% of those with no more than a high school diploma. Agreement with evolution without God's involvement is 31% among postgrads versus 12% among Americans with a high school education or less.

However, even among adults with a college degree or postgraduate education, more believe God had a role in evolution than say evolution occurred without God.

Views by people's religious preferences or lack thereof paint an illuminating picture as well. More Catholics believe that humans evolved but God guided the process (45%) than believe in the creationist viewpoint (37%). Creationism is still the view that half of Protestants and other Christians (50%) hold, but it is not dominant, with 39% saying humans essentially evolved with God's guidance.

As for those with no religious preference, 57% report a belief that does not involve God, while only 9% are creationists. Not surprisingly, 65% of those who attend church weekly believe in the creationist view, while those who attend church less regularly have less consensus on the question of human origins.
