For people who actually believe in hell, they don't seem to take it very seriously.

Two arrests after teenager 'strangled and forced to apologise for being gay' on Tube

Two teenage boys have been arrested after a teenager was allegedly strangled and forced to apologise for being gay on a Tube train.
The 19-year-old's attackers threatened to stab him and placed him in a headlock as he travelled on a Jubilee line train, police said.
British Transport Police said the suspects took the victim’s phone as they strangled him and demanded that he apologise for being gay which he eventually did as he was struggling to breathe.
One of the victim's female friends, 25, was punched and pushed to the ground when she came to his defence, police said

Absolutely, in the UK this should never happen in this day and age. It's sounds like something from a Dickens novel.

I still say the basics of life, clean water, food, shelter, health care, should not be about money.

Frank Field: “I’ve done surgeries for 38 years. On my last surgery on Friday, for the first time ever, a gentleman rose after we’ve spoken and I’d tried to persuade him not to commit suicide."

Liberal Muslims Are Losing The Battle In Britain

In 2015, a liberal blogger called Avijit Roy was stabbed and hacked to death as he was leaving a book fair in Bangladesh. It marked the tensions straining the political and social fabrics of Bangladesh. In the past three to four years, at least sixteen people – including the founder of the first gay ma... in Bangladesh. The weakened capacity of the Bangladeshi state, trying to apprehend and punish the Islamists of the Jamaat-e-Islami party who sided with Pakistan in 1971, has left an open space for militant religious conservatives to inflict violence upon the secular progressive voice of Bangladesh.

There is something disheartening to see a country, crumpled by its staggering poverty and political corruption, fall towards the very values it rose against. Whereas India and Pakistan were states founded upon the concept of religious states, Bangladesh was different. It wasn’t about Muslims or Hindus but about Bengali people fighting to preserve their culture and their history. It was a secular country, and there was something movingly beautiful in that. Today, that legacy is threatened by the rise of religious conservatives.

Only secularism can defeat the emboldened Hindu right

Posted: Fri, 01 Dec 2017

Violent threats look set to censor a film which was due for UK release today. It's the latest sign of rising Hindu fundamentalism. In response, Chris Sloggett says, we must make sure no religion gets special treatment.

The makers of the Bollywood historical epic Padmavati say it doesn't feature a love affair between a 14th-century Indian Queen and a Muslim invader. But for members of Rajput Karni Sena it doesn't seem to matter. Cinemas that screen the film, the group's leader said last week, should be burnt down.

Just a month earlier another group told British cinemas: "Our members are trained in handling a large array of weapons ranging from swords to AK-47s." A proportionate reaction, you will surely agree, to rumours that a film might offend someone's religious sensibilities. (To be fair, viewers do also risk catching a glimpse of the Queen's midriff at one point).
