Chris, about the Pensacola cross win stand.

By now you probably figured out that it’s lawyer-talk for asking the Supreme Court to let the lower court’s decision stand.

A Secular Bangladeshi Blogger Fights for His Life 

While the murder of Jamal Khashoggi brought more attention to Saudi Arabia, it’s not the only country where writers are in danger. Secular humanist bloggers in Bangladesh are often murdered by radical religious extremists simply for promoting secular humanist values online. One such blogger currently fighting for his life is Md. Sazzadul Hoque, a 21-year-old man who was forced to flee to India due to threats against his life. “I now fear for my life,” he recently told The Times of India. “I could also be killed in India by fundamentalists who support the goings on in Bangladesh… I have nowhere to go.”
Raised in a conservative Muslim household, Hoque began questioning his religious beliefs and started blogging about secular humanism in 2016. A year later on Facebook, he publicly announced his atheism, and while the post went viral, his account was suspended and sparked countless death threats. “People who were my best friends are my worst enemies now,” Hoque told the Times of India, “and would turn me over to the fundamentalists at any time.” He tried to seek shelter in Bangladesh, but to no avail. After getting kicked out of college, he fled to India with a tourist visa in May of 2017. As he recently told the Press Trust of India (PTI), “Even now, I keep receiving threats on Facebook, but the situation here is not as fearful as it is in my country.”
Technically there are no blasphemy laws in Bangladesh, but there’s the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act. According to Section 57 of the ICT Act, “If any person deliberately publishes or transmits or causes to be published or transmitted in the website or in any other electronic form any material which... causes to hurt or may hurt religious belief or instigate against any person or organization, then this activity will be regarded as an offense.”
“Basically,” Hoque explained in a recent blog post for the Center for Inquiry (CFI), “if any person criticizes the government and/or religious fundamentalists in Bangladesh, he or she is arrested through often unconstitutional means, locked up without bail, and then charged. If found guilty, the punishments often exceed the ones seen during British colonial rule.” Or in Hoque’s case, many fundamentalists in Bangladesh are happy to skip due process and go straight to execution.
Hoque is receiving some support now. According to a recent interview for Conatus News, he’s currently working with both the CFI and Humane First to help him out, and he refuses to quit blogging. I contacted him to see if anything else can be done. Hoque replied that he hopes people will share his story as much as they can to help him find permanent safe shelter.
While President Trump’s attacks on the press is creating a hostile environment for journalists here in the USA, it’s important to remember that it’s worse in other parts of the world. I hope Hoque’s story will remind us all about the importance of free speech around the world, and to never take it for granted

What's wrong with the FFRF title?

The district court sided with the national secular organizations in a June 2017 decision, ordering the removal of the city’s massive Christian cross.

Freethinkers ask U.S. Supreme Court to let Pensacola cross win stand

What a terrible title. Of course it was intentional - What's the purpose?  The title makes it appear that they lost and the cross will stand.

There is a plateau near a town I lived.  It was sacred to the local Umatilla indian tribe.  It was owned by the county and city in some sort of joint ownership, or agreement.  Somehow a private owner had some control over it.  Upon the death of the owner the land was given to the local city.   In amongst that, apparently the 'owner belonged to some sort of xtian denomination that had political power in the local community.

Even though all the land was turned over to the local government the city manager rejected some of it in cohorts with a  local church to keep a pathway to the top of the plateau where a cross was built that stood above the entire area.  It had numerous lights on it.

Myself and other atheists complained to the city manager about it - there was nothing we could do.  It would have been interesting if with the backing of FFRF, or another group if we could have fought that. 

That area was polluted with treaties and agreements between the Umatilla indians, state, city, rail roads, and apparently church groups.

Catholic Archbishop Says Domestic Violence is “Caused by Women Not Obeying Men”
Braulio Rodriguez told his congregation in Toledo, Spain, that wives could also escape being physically abused by not asking their husbands for a divorce
The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Toledo, Braulio Rodriguez, told his congregation that wives could avoid being hit by doing what they are told.
Women could also escape being physically abused by not asking their husbands for a divorce , Rodriguez said.
He told churchgoers in his sermon: “The majority of cases of domestic violence happen because the woman’s partner does not accept them, or rejects them for not accepting their demands.

“Or often the macho reaction comes about because she asked for a separation.”
He also said many relationship problems occurred because the couple were not in a ‘true marriage’, and he criticised the practice of ‘quickie divorces’.
He said: “I don’t think our political leaders are worried about divorce figures when they have fought so hard to implement the so-called quick divorce.”
Thousands of furious Spanish women have now taken to social media to slam the cleric.
One wrote: “The archbishop of Toledo has linked domestic violence to couples not being in a ‘proper marriage’. So says the celibate man who believes in a ghost.”
Another added: “He should be locked up for inciting violence. This idiot should keep his medieval views to himself.”
