Catholic church offends and disgusts me (news article response)

Hi All,

    I checked the news on news.com.au this morning and found this article. In which the catholic church both offends and disgusts me.

Another reason religion is a bad, bad, thing (like we needed another one)

Free Quran!

Hi Everyone,

    Discovered this morning that mypeace.com.au are giving away free English translations of the Quran to any and all non-muslim visitors who want one. Might only be valid in Australia but they did ask me what country I was in... Might be able to get the Quran anywhere in the world for free. Hopefully it will be good for those people who are interested in studying holy books for arguments sake. Could also be useful if you dont feel like paying for rolly papers for a while…
