Wer ist der liebe Gott? Und was passiert eigentlich nach dem Tod? Eltern, die nicht gläubig sind, tun sich mit solchen Fragen häufig schwer. Weil sie meinen, sie müssten ihren Kindern eindeutige, möglichst positive Antworten geben. Deshalb vermeiden viele, über Religion zu reden. Anders die Humanisten, die sich auf die Freidenker berufen. Sie vermitteln eine atheistische Weltanschauung, kritisches Denken und soziale Verantwortung - nicht nur zuhause, sondern auch in Kitas, Schulen und den Jugendfeiern des humanistischen Verbandes.

Religiöse Schulgegner scheitern mit Klage vor Europäischem Gerichtshof

Das Paar aus der Nähe von Darmstadt hatte sich aus religiösen Gründen geweigert, seine vier Kinder in die Schule zu schicken. Die Behörden brachten die Kinder daraufhin 2013 für drei Wochen im Heim unter, um die Schulpflicht durchzusetzen. Die Eltern sehen dadurch ihr Menschenrecht auf Familienleben verletzt.

Die Straßburger Richter hielten nun fest, dass mit dem teilweisen Sorgerechtsentzug zwar in dieses Recht eingegriffen worden sei. Die Gründe dafür seien aber "relevant und ausreichend". So hätten die deutschen Behörden Grund zur Annahme gehabt, dass die Kinder in Gefahr schwebten, isoliert waren und keinen Kontakt zu Menschen außerhalb der Familie hatten. Die Eltern hätten weniger strenge Maßnahmen verhindert, indem sie nicht mit den Behörden kooperierten. Das Urteil kann innerhalb von drei Monaten angefochten werden.

Yesterday, I have watched a #documentary that talked about #Sikhism #religion, similar to #Buddhism. It is one of the most civilized communities I have heard of, light years ahead from us.

For example, they have langars -- community kitchens where they serve #free #food to all visitors, regardless of religion, caste, #gender, economic status or #ethnicity.

Compare this with #Trump and most #USA's primitive ape-like mentality. He would probably start throwing feces around if he didn't have a team of people watching over him not to do that. Coming up with #stupid ideas like building a #wall to separate people he wants to die from people he wants to abuse.

Flame in #Yazd fire temple has been burning for 1,500 years on

It is a flame taken from the extremely ancient fire which used to be alight in Karyan fire temple — one of Iran’s three main fire temples during the Sassanid Empire (224-651) CE — and transferred to Aqda, in Yazd Province, where it was kept for close to 700 years. In 1174, the fire was brought to Ardakan, located in the same province, from Aqda.

The fire kept constantly burning for 300 years in Ardakan. In 1474 the fire was carried to Yazd city where it was kept alight at the house of Khalaf Ali Khan, a prominent Zoroastrian cleric (known as mobed), for a while. In 1934, however, Bahram fire temple was constructed and the fire found a new residence.

The ancient fire is kept inside a glass case in a room within the fire temple. Visitors are only permitted to see the fire from behind the glass case. A man named Hirbod is responsible for keeping the fire alight.

Girl who fled family fearing death now under #UNHCR protection

In response, the UNHCR said they have not had official contact from Thai authorities regarding the arrival of Al-Qunun's father and brother and any meeting would be unlikely "as she has stated her fear of seeing her family," said Caroline Gluck, UNHCR Senior Regional Public Information Officer in Bangkok. "This will be very disturbing news for her."

Upon landing, she said she was held by Saudi embassy officials and had her passport confiscated. She said the Saudis tried to make her sign a piece of paper, and that when she refused and appealed to Thai immigration officials, she was escorted to a transit hotel.

This is as creepy as can get.

Al-Qunun told CNN that she renounced Islam and fears she will be killed if she is sent back to Saudi Arabia because of this. She said her elder brother had beaten her for her beliefs.

#Belgium bans halal and kosher slaughtering methods

Jewish and Muslim traditions require animals to be in perfect health when they are slaughtered, a requirement that clashes with some European laws that require animals to be incapable of feeling pain when they are killed. Most European countries offer religious exemptions that allow for the production of halal and kosher meat.

Although I approve of religious freedom and the freedom for everyone to believe in whatever one wishes to believe in as long as he keeps it as his (or her) private affair, without occupying others with it as long as long as they don't wish to be occupied with it, but when it comes to the suffering of others - including animals -, a limit has been reached and shall not be trespassed. When animals have to suffer for their freedom, this freedom can no longer be allowed. Thus, I approve of Belgium's decision to ban these practices for they are of a dark past in which people didn't believe in a conscience on... show more

Israeli nationalist crimes tripled in 2018

Last year saw a steep rise in “nationalist crimes,” violence and property damage by Jews against Palestinians in the West Bank. As of mid-December, 482 such incidents had been reported, compared to 140 for 2017.

Violence by settlers and right-wing activists included beating up and throwing stones at Palestinians. More frequently, the offenses consisted of painting nationalist and anti-Arab or anti-Muslim slogans, damaging homes and cars and cutting down trees belonging to Palestinian farmers.

I should read the titles of the articles before I bookmark them for later. Although this was interesting to know, soon after the advent of a new year, but still, it was not the topic I was looking for. Anyway, read it.

Some settler leaders, as well as Education Minister Naftali Bennett, spoke out strongly against Jewish terror. But in recent months a decline in the strength of settlement figures described as “statesmanlike” can be seen.

Mayor of #Naples ready to open harbour for Sea Watch

"I hope this boat comes to the port of Naples because unlike what the government says we will put into the field a rescue action and we will let it into the port," he said.

Does anyone know what Matteo Salvini has said about this move? Is he very upset about it, or is he indifferent about it and now awaits a rise of criminality in this city? I don't know, I am late already since this report is four days old.

Some 18 NGOs including Save The Children, Amnesty International, Emergency and Doctors Without Borders appealed to EU member states to take in the 49 migrants aboard the two vessels on Thursday. (ANSAmed).
