If you’re even remotely familiar with Islamic Sharia law this would not really come as a surprise to you, as it is one of the sources of the most brutal and inexplicable laws that any group of people willingly subject themselves to.
Religion propagates many vices that any civilised society would not indulge in. The Christian god is a misogynistic, genocidal maniac; Islam’s Allah is not much different. The oppression and degradation of women in the supposed holy texts is troubling, and whilst Christianity has somewhat moved from that (it’s more subtle now), adherents to Islam’s Sharia law remain stuck in the backwards mentality imposed by their religion.
Read this story and I dare you to come up with a different conclusion. A 19 year old Saudi woman who was gang raped by 7 men back in 2006, has been sentenced to 200 lashes and six months in jail for ‘indecency and speaking to the press’.

The gown was supposedly ‘custom designed by Francisco Costa, and was adorned with 6,000 natural white pearls’

The Film Directors Guild of Ghana (FDGG) has officially been launched in Accra on Friday, February 27, 2015. The ceremony which was chaired by a representative of the Speaker of Parliament – Rt. Hon. Mr. Edward Doe Adjaho – seeks to bring film directors across the country under one umbrella to champion a worthy cause.
Delivering the keynote address, President of the Film Directors Guild of Ghana, Mr. Richard J. A. Boateng stressed on the need for film makers and the government of Ghana to collaborate and establish a strong film industry.
According to him, Ghana as a country does not have a film industry. He attributed this to lack of unity among film makers; therefore couldn’t join forces to champion that course. Mr. Boateng indicated that it is based on this that they (Film Directors) have established the Film Directors Guild of Ghana. As he puts it, “Ghana is ready to put structures and professional measures in place to help govern and administer the businesses of film making in this country.”
The level of corruption we as ordinary Ghanaians have to deal with it every day is astounding, and whilst we’ve all been scrambling around trying to find out how we can solve this menace- the Northern Regional Minister seems to have stumbled upon the cure to all these governmental corruption.
Churches should stop expecting Ministers to make huge donations during service, and citizens should stop pestering them for help. So simple!
According to Alhaji Mohammed Muniru, the church is the biggest cause of corruption amongst government officials. Because people expect so much from them when fundraising and other activities are ongoing; they are forced to steal so they can meet these demands.
“You tell us that if you can afford Ghc 1,000, come for this prayer… so if I’m sitting there as a minister and I cannot afford, I will be ashamed so the next time, I will do all means to get money and that is why we have officials trying to steal money because they have to be respected in the church”
Imagine collapsing on your wedding day, waking up in hospital only to be told your bride-to-be had married someone else; not just anyone but a random guest she picked out of the crowd at your own wedding!
That must really hurt.
BBC reports a groom at a wedding in Rampur town in Northern India, Jugal Kishore collapsed during his wedding ceremony, just when he was going to hang the wedding garland on his intended bride, Indira.
Apparently Jugal suffered from epilepsy, and had hidden the condition from the woman he was supposed to marry. Angry at the deception, Indira asked a member of her brother-in-law’s family, a guest at the wedding, if he wanted to step in for the groom!
Rihanna last night released more photos from her AnOther Magazine shoot on her Instagram account. And one of the photos released has the Bajan superstar showing off her bare beubs (the picture is now deleted).
We are bit surprise she is taking the raunchy route again — not that we didn’t know she is a bad b*tch, but of late she’s been more demure.
Peep inside for the uncensored photo of Rihanna’s ‘AnOther Magazine shoot…
Kwesi Kyei Darkwah’s alleged rape case has today been transferred to the High Court for trail—despite the fact that his lawyer-Anthony Forson argued that the case should be dismissed.
At the Kanieshie District Court today presided over by justice Adjoa Akyamaa, the court transferred the case to the High Court after the prosecutor read the bill of indictment.
KKD’s lawyer had wanted the case not to be transferred, rather be dismissed—arguing that the State wouldn’t be able to make a case at the High Court since the key alleged victim has already expressed her dis-interest in the case. Here, the lawyer pulled out the letter written by the alleged victim some weeks ago and read it to the judge.
The footballers are living large—and with such high earnings each week, they continue to look for expensive places where they can put their money.
Cameroonian football star-Samuel Eto’o has shown that he is not just a baller on the pitch but off pitch, he can get people talking too—with his money…
Though the villa which locals say is haunted by the curse of the Tutankhamun is deemed to be under some sort of curse because of its history, Striker Samuel Eto’o – who played for Chelsea and Everton before transferring to Sampdoria in northern Italy has fallen in love with it—and has splashed £18.5 million on it.
When I hear people say I would rather believe in a God and His many prophets than not because if I do and later it turns out to be false, I have lost nothing—-I just laugh, because anyone who says has failed t evaluate what believe in God, prophets, religion and the concept of faith bring forth.
I am against anything that intentionally or unintentionally blocks free inquiry and religion does more than this, it invests heavily in ignorance. It “is violent, irrational, makes absurd claims which it hates to be challenged, allied to racism, tribalism, bigotry, glorifies ignorance and invests heavily in the oppression of women and continues to terrorize children”.
The truth this, it’s not just one religion that does this—all of them; mention any religion that stands against the aforementioned?
Anyway, a friend forwarded the below videos to me and to be frank, I was shocked that anyone will have such a conversation in the 21st century—and of course it is made possible by religion. God says we should do it…
To think that women these days have somewhat become forward runners of religion, the concept of God and the believe in prophets—when they are those who suffer most under these things truly show that; religion heavily invests in ignorance and it is good at doing so.
Now, do you want to know how to ‘beat your wife’ as permitted by God?
Watch the videos below—because God allows men to beat the hell of their women; except that you have to do it a certain way according to Islamic teachings. Remember, Islam is the second largest religion in the world and the most fast spreading religion…
Good old Robert Mugabe has this thing where he hates to admit weaknesses, thus always putting up the front that he is a strong man when his 91st birthday is just around the corner.
Since that fall, which transformed into several memes from the unforgiving internet; the government has been in overdrive spinning the incident. Information minister Jonathan Moyo told Zimbabwe’s Herald, that the ‘alleged’ fall occurred because two pieces of carpet that had not been properly laid, forming a hump.
“To be honest with you, even Jesus, let alone you, would also have tripped in that kind of situation”
Personally, I feel the guy who walked on water would have a little more poise than a nonagenarian.
Can you (guy) imagine deciding on marrying a half twin sister and ends up marrying the other – all because they claim, since their infancy, they do and share everything together? What a winning jackpot – how I wish I was this lucky man.
Fifty one (51) year old Mzukiseni Mzazi got married to 26 year old twin sisters, Owami and Olwethu Mzazi from Vosloorus, in South Africa recently.
In an interview with South African magazine – Drum magazine, the sisters said they’ve always known they will someday marry the same man as they have shared everything else together since they were born.
“We have always done everything together. We share everything. That is how our grandmother raised us. So when we decided to marry, we said any man that wants to marry one, will marry the other” Owami told Drum magazine.

New Year, new declarations from ‘Men of God’ that we have to swallow hook, line, and sinker.
Chris Okafor is the head of Nigerian Church Liberation City. In his sermon to his congregation on Sunday, February 1, he reiterated a slew of prophecies he had made for the New Year, most of which centred on tragedy and conflict.
According to the pastor christened as ‘The Oracle of God’, a plane full of a certain political parties’ campaign team is going to crash. According to him, there is a heavy cloud that is about to rain blood before the election.
Surrounding the election, he said one party would win, but it will be rigged to usher in the other party as the winners. This would generate a lot of bloodshed; and also that a governorship candidate would not live to see the election.
As usual the caveat, that all this can be averted with the proper prayers, which ostensibly him and his church are already studiously carrying out. What you have here is a win-win situation.

Ghana’s Black Stars have made it to the quarter-finals of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations and today at 16:00 GMT, they will take on Guinea in an attempt to secure a semi finals place—a match the Black Stars must win.
The Black Stars have beaten Guinea with ease recently so they will be walking onto the pitch as the favourite to win but when it comes to football, you cannot always bet on past glories and Guinea will be coming on to win too.
In a pre-match conference, Ghana’s coach- Avram Grant has said the “familiarity between both sides in recent times will make their quarter final clash on Sunday evening more difficult,” reports GhanaSoccernet.Com .
He said; “We played against them during qualification which means we know them and they know us,” Grant said in his pre-match press conference.
“But preparations are the same – training, meetings.
“We know that quarter finals is one game.
“This is not the group stage, in the group stage we lost one game and had to win the other two games to qualify [for quarter finals].
“I know Guinea, I saw their games and I must say they play very good football.
“They know how to play football and they have good players and they deserve to be here in the quarter finals.
“They will be a very tough team to beat.”
Slowly, the Black Stars are winning back the hearts of the many disappointed Ghanaian football fans and today’s win will go a long way to help their cause of mending broken relationship with the fans.
Two dramatic come from behind victories sent Congo DR and host Equatorial Guinea through to the AFCON semi-finals as the last eight of the competition commenced in essence today.
Equatorial Guinea have been riding the host nation wave since the tournament began, and a combination of the referee’s favour, a rabid home fan base, and Javier Balboa led them to a 2-1 extra time win over favourites Tunisia.
In the earlier quarter final, DR Congo came from two goals down, with three goals in the last fifteen minutes to dispatch off a wasteful Congo by 4-2.
Tunisia took control of a scrappy game in the 70th minute, when Akaichi hit a sweet shot first time on a cross from the right. The North Africans looked on course for a demoralising victory over the hosts, until Balboa equalised barely a minute from time.
The referee whistled for a penalty, probably the softest penalty decision in the history of the game. But being host has its perks, and Javier Balboa wasted no time in dispatching the kick to send the game into extra time.
We thought all these rumours were a joke. This is really shocking. Why wait till you are 65 when everything is sagged before you transition into woman?
It is now confirmed, Bruce Jenner will officially be a ‘woman’ very soon, People.com reveals.
“Bruce is transitioning to a woman. He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he’s doing. He’s in such a great space. That’s why it’s the perfect time to do something like this,” a source close to Bruce revealed to People.
There are few things sweeter in football than the last minute winner; any amateur fan of the game can tell you that. Ghana’s Black Stars embodied that in their win over Algeria earlier today, skipper Asamoah Gyan clinching the tie right at the death.
The Al-Ain forward missed the first game through illness, and the absence of his goals saw the team succumb to a 2-1 loss to Senegal. His return to today’s encounter therefore was heavily anticipated and despite an average, bordering on mediocre performance; the skipper pulled the rabbit out of the hat at the final moment to prove his mettle as this side’s top magician.
In the second group C game, Senegal cemented their place at the top of the group, holding South Africa to a 1-1 draw.
The Black Stars badly needed a win after losing their first game of the tournament, and Coach Grant rang the changes more in terms of tactics than personnel. The 3-4-3 was ditched for the more conventional 4-2-3-1, skipper Gyan the lone forward spearheading the attack.
Rowan Atkinson, 60, popularly known as Mr. Bean is selling his McLaren F1 super car for £8million after it cost almost £1million to repair when he smashed it into a tree – regarded as the highest car insurance claim in Britain.
Mr. Bean bought his 241mph British supercar new in 1997 for £540,000 but he is selling the car now for £8 million, though he has crashed it twice in the past.
Even though Mr. Bean claims he did not buy the car for investment purposes, it surely seems as one considering how much he bought it and how much he is selling it.
When I was in JSS and SSS in Ghana, I knew more than three people (students) who were in romantic relationships with teachers—and though it was not really out there for everyone to know, it was not really a secret too.
I did not think anything of these relationships between my classmates and teachers—and I didn’t even think it was wrong for a teacher to be dating a student until I travelled to USA.
Out here, it is against standard rules in many institutions for teachers to be sleeping with students/pupils—let alone, hold long lasting romantic relationships.
I have heard of several teachers who have been banned from teaching forever for having affair with their students/pupils—and it is not that these students were under age or anything, it is plainly not allowed no matter the age.
