    Round of 16: Colombia v England (19:00 BST ITV1)

    probably the best game of the whole thing so far

    you're right but it's definitely the size of a stone or maybe a small rock

    I've never seen a player (including messi) less interested in playing football than messi at this tournament so far

    Anthony Bourdain found dead

    what are they saying?
  9. after seeing the cop who killed daniel shaver avoid jail time I give up on the whole system
  10. yeah it's a long process. if you don't think we've made progress then I don't know what to tell you. seeing the social changes in my country in literally just my lifetime is evidence enough of a major upheaval. even the pope has had to walk back most of the fundamental teachings of the church on issues like gay marriage because of social pressure. there are no theocracies in the west.
  11. look, finding legitimate problems in religious texts is like shooting fish in a barrel. I really don't get where this overwhelming reluctance to acknowledge that there is a problem with Islam comes from. we've diagnosed all the problems with Christianity in the west and, for the most part, better ideas have won out. my country just voted for gay marriage and abortion. it's a long process but slowly the church's influence gets chipped away and it's for the betterment of society. it'd be nice to have the same thing happen with islam. that really shouldn't be a controversial point and I definitely don't need a condescending disclaimer about how I'm in danger of being exposed to the ramblings of Carl ****ing Benjamin of Swindon. it's great fun to paint people outside your tribe as hacks, I do it with someone like Dave Rubin all the time. But calling Nawaz a hack is pretty disingenuous imo.
  12. I like maajid nawaz's views on reforming islam because he is a practicing muslim and a former islamist himself so he has a pretty good insight
  13. I was raised in ireland, I don't need to be convinced of the awfulness of the bible. seeing the church's influence on society in this country dwindle has been one of the most satisfying things ever
  14. I mean the way some people read the quran is literally the issue with islam isn't it? the quran is different from the bible in the sense that it is the actual written word of allah. the bible also has a new testament which tells christians to turn the other cheek and presents a much more loving and understanding version of god, the quran and the hadith both very specifically state that infidels should be killed. the fact that over a billion muslims aren't doing these things doesn't mean there's no issue with islam. there being all sorts of **** in the bible is also a huge issue with the bible. people are trying gay conversion therapy in the west because of the bible. that's a problem with christianity. pregnant women being denied pain medication because of the teachings of l ron hubbard is a problem with scientology sick children being denied blood transfusions because of the jehovah's witness new testament is similarly a problem with their ideology. islam teaches some seriously backwards and regressive ideas very plainly in its texts. that's an issue.
