Atheists arrested for being atheists. That's what theists all around the world would love to see, since their petty little gods can't take a little reality.

DHAKA: Bangladesh police have arrested three atheist bloggers for allegedly defaming Islam and the Prophet Mohammed, police said Tuesday, amid calls from religious fundamentalists for an Internet crackdown.
The arrest of the three, who were paraded in handcuffs at a news conference, followed pressure from Islamists who have organised a march from all over the country to the capital to demand the death penalty for atheist bloggers.
"They have hurt the religious feelings of the people by writing against different religions and their prophets and founders including the Prophet Mohammed," said deputy commissioner of Dhaka police, Molla Nazrul Islam.
The three could face 10 years in jail if convicted under the country's cyber laws which outlaw "defaming" a religion, Islam said.
This is beyond crazy. If these supposed gods are all powerful, why do the minions have to fight for them? Why can't they just let atheists be?
Because they do not believe the same bullshit as they believe!
we have got to fight these people who call for laws around the world against insulting religions and hurting the feelings of beleivers very insidious.
Religions excel at cultivating outrage.
If you can't say jesus sucks, no real freedom exists. =)
