From my friend Jerry Coyne comes this awful story from Afghanistan, as reported by CNN:
Religion poisons everything, including schoolgirls’ water
The Taliban, or someone of their stripe, are going after women again for the crime of trying to get an education. CNN reports that “Extremists poison schoolgirls’ water“:
Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) — At least 140 Afghan schoolgirls and female teachers were admitted to a local hospital Tuesday after drinking poisoned water, said local health officials, who blamed the act on extremists opposed to women’s education.
Islam is not healthy for women of any age. Ladies, it is time to leave it, and take your girl children with you when you go.
