RE: Serves The Bastards Right
Transubstantiation.

Well, if a believer drinks it. Hell if I know what happens if Jesus himself drinks it.

There are innocent people who mistakenly convicted of capital murder through neglect or willful malice of the state, who then spent 30 years on death row before being vindicated and released, and who only got several hundred thousand dollars from the state in compensation for an entire prime of life totally trashed, to say nothing of complete denial of freedom for 30 years. Does this plaintiff, who suffered only an abridgement of his freedom for merely 100 days, really deserve $2 million?

The fact that a totally innocent person who by mistake was forced to lingered 30 years on death row not knowing when it would likely end through execution could get only a fraction of the compensation paid to a not all together innocent person who merely had his freedom unjustifiably abridged for a definitive term of 100 days. This is disproportional.


Depends on the state. It's $50k per year falsely incarcerated in Florida (& would be much higher in California judging by cost of living), plus they pay for up to 120 credit hours at a Community College or State University. The low ball for that is ~$1000 / credit hour. Also keep in mind that a.) we don't know how that $2 million was split between the state & AA & b.) more than likely this is AA paying the guy off so he doesn't sue them for even more. This "exorbitant sum" is because AA's lawyers told AA they don't have a leg to stand on & to pay the guy off to *save* money in the long run.

I personally think that the actual amount of money he received is beside the point. What's important is that religion not be shoved down people's throats. Did he 'deserve' $2 million? Maybe, maybe not, but he certainly didn't deserve to have Jesus rammed up his ass so regardless of how much he got, his rights were violated and the situation was, seemingly, corrected. Great link I am going to have to bookmark this one.
“Love is the only bow on Life’s dark cloud. It is the morning and the evening star. It shines upon the babe, and sheds its radiance on the quiet tomb. It is the mother of art, inspirer of poet, patriot and philosopher.

It is the air and light of every heart – builder of every home, kindler of every fire on every hearth. It was the first to dream of immortality. It fills the world with melody – for music is the voice of love.

Love is the magician, the enchanter, that changes worthless things to Joy, and makes royal kings and queens of common clay. It is the perfume of that wondrous flower, the heart, and without that sacred passion, that divine swoon, we are less than beasts; but with it, earth is heaven, and we are gods.” - Robert. G. Ingersoll

It also sends the wrong message that locking away a innocent black man for life is less heinous than making an atheist ape some christian bullshit for a mere short while.
