Abused by youth on Treowen

In about me, children, ethics, kids, legal issues, moral issues, people, relationship, traditions, xenophobia on March 24, 2013 at 20:55

Today at about 3 p.m. me and my husband were walking to the shops when 5 kids approached us (between Treowen school and community house) and started throwing snowballs at us. When I stopped and tried to tell them off (we obviousely don’t swear) we met with horrible disgusting verbal abuse. A girl was mocking my foreign accent and a boy exposed himself. I think we know the name of one of the offenders and I think we’re seen others locally before. We are distressed by this accident and we don’t think the behaviour of these kids should be ignored.

This is not the first occasion.  A couple of weeks ago my husband was verbally abused in the evening on the way from work. My children told me that one of their elderly teachers is being bullied at school by students. A couple of years ago two teenage girls were shouting swear words at me and my then little kiddies – without any apparent reason apart from thinking we are Polish.  Today’s “mocking girl”, often seen on that street, was trying to say something offencive to me on other occasions but I just ignored her. Not any more. Community support officers have been notified of the incident.

I don’t think I am overreacting.  When we were kids we loved practical jokes but we didn’t swear and I absolutely can’t imagine us looking innocent strangers into the eyes and being abusive.  We never had a will to do anything like that (Why?) And we knew there could be serious consequences.  E.g. parents called to the headteacher – it would be pretty scary.  Today’s lot were so sure they won’t be punished in any way. I think that is wrong and this attitude should change.

Anybody Expects the Spanish Inquisition?

In ethics, freedom, kids, legal issues, moral issues, religion, traditions on February 20, 2013 at 16:50

I know that Gatestone Institute publications are biased: they may think they are for the freedom of speech but just try to say something against Israel… Not allowed.  So I am quoting them only because I can’t find any other reference to a disturbing news story I’ve found:

Spain has acceded to the demands of the Islamist government in Morocco by agreeing that Moroccan children adopted by Spanish families must remain culturally and religiously Muslim.

The agreement obliges the Spanish government to establish a “control mechanism” that would enable Moroccan religious authorities to monitor the children until they reach the age of 18 to ensure they have not converted

Poor kids! Do children have any rights in Europe? Is Spain about to create an apostasy law? Are they going to publicly stone foster parents who don’t agree?

I think children should be kept away from religion till they are 18. There are passages in Christian, Muslim and Jewish “sacred” books that are definitely too gross for kids. Or they glorify things incompatible with modern ethics. There are plenty of cruelty in many ancient texts but only ones which are treated as “sacred” are dangerous. The texts are supposed to came from a “benevolent” god, the evil things are said and done by profits, martyrs, saints, apostles. This way all that ancient madness is sanctified.

Below are some most gross quotes from the Bible. You need a special twist of mind to think (like some religious people do) that they mean something opposite to what they actually literally say. It is to think  like “WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, and IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH” from George Orwell‘s “1984”.

There is also an interesting resource here.

I really want to go through the writings of Orthodox Christian saints and dig up some absurdities, inconsistencies and cruelties one day. So, the Bible says:

“I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man. She must be quiet.” (1 Timothy 2:12)

“Go, now, attack Amalek, and deal with him and all that he has under the ban. Do not spare him, but kill men and women, children and infants, oxen and sheep, camels and asses.” (1 Samuel 15:3)

“You shall not let a sorceress live.” (Exodus 22:18) Read the rest of this entry »
