There’s sim­ply no way that we can extend the con­cept of tol­er­ance to any prac­ti­tion­ers of the fol­low­ing exam­ples of egre­gious stupidity:

Officials at Nepal’s state-​​run air­line have sac­ri­ficed two goats to appease Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, fol­low­ing tech­ni­cal prob­lems with one of its Boeing 757 air­craft, the car­rier said Tuesday.

Yep, goat sac­ri­fice. In order to “fix” a mechan­i­cal fault with an air­plane. Fly Royal Nepal! Now guar­an­teed 99% exor­cised! (Look after the fold for an ad they might run in the future.)

Next we have this lovely lit­tle bit of cov­er­age from Fort Lauderdale, FL, whereat ass­hat mayor Jim Naugle is still fail­ing to rec­og­nize his own irrel­e­vance. Extreme right-​​wing fun­da­men­tal­ist Christian shit­brains were sid­ing with Naugle (and vice-​​versa) … dressed in mas­tur­ba­tory para­mil­i­tary uni­forms. Apparently the “per­se­cuted minor­ity” Christians at Koinonia Worship Center in Pembroke Park, FL have decided they need to arm up and take the line “onward, Christian sol­diers” a bit too damned seriously.

Gee, I won­der what would hap­pen if sim­i­lar behav­ior was observed at the local mosque.

And, of course, it wouldn’t be a roundup of reli­gious retar­da­tion with­out yet another mur­der burn­ing at the stake exe­cu­tion of witches:

Two South African women have been burned to death after a group of stu­dents accused them of bewitch­ing their high school with evil spirits.

We’re putting up with this shit … why again, exactly?
