Atheist martyrs

Another atheist/secular blogger Nazim Uddin Samad, outspoken critic of religious extremism and in particular injustice inspired by misogyny was hacked and shot to death in Dhaka, Bangladesh today. This kind of religiously motivated assassination seems to becoming the norm there. It's hard to know what to say that hasn't already been said, a sad reflection on the culture of that country, a state teetering on the verge of fascist theocracy and the Bangladeshi government continue to appear indifferent. A place to avoid.

It cannot be questioned, even if it turns out to be wrong (which it most definitely is from an intellectual and moral perspective).

CB, yes, fortunately "words" cannot be so easily killed.
