It seems myspace didn't delete anything. Hackers are going around deleting all religious myspace pages and this Atheists page was also hit. Myspace put back the guys website for him. www.myspace.com...


So much for that. I often accuse atheists for self-victimization and trying to come off as oppressed etc. Now to see that this entire fiasco was a misunderstanding...

their case seems ever weaker.

I don't think you're referring to the Massachusetts law that Scientist referred to. Anyway, there are blue laws that don't refer specifically to Sunday.

That's why it's called a conundrum.

Only if you actually ignore what the owner of the site said. The hacker vandalised the site months ago, eventually myspace fixed. But users had been perm banned. The owner asked myspace to reinstate them. The replied saying they would be deleting the group. Then they deleted the group.

Now the myspace page has been reinstated.

point being, hacking isn't illegal in sweden. and unnamed substances are legal in various states within the US, and various countries throughout the world (despite their own "blue laws'). See the parallel now?

There's more than one way to read a line. How's that for a parallel.

I don't believe in god and I know that religion was created to control and brainwash the humanity. But I still don't show my atheistic views everywhere because lots of people don't like it. People don't like independent individuals and always want to dominate them.

I don't believe this is true as I know an atheist whose myspace page is still active and has been for years.

It really depends what you use it for... I'm a musician and myspace has been a fantastic promotional and networking tool for me. I have quite a large fanbase now and have been contacted and offered distribution deals for my music by various record labels and it's all been through myspace.

not that law particularly but they still have a few off the wall blue laws that are strictly inforced.

as i said in an earlier post, why dont these people just start their own site?

then they dont have to be banned.

next well have people all upset over myspace banning preditors.

freedom of speach works two ways. those people have the same rights to express themselves as the owners of myspace do. if they dont want them there then they need to find some where else to go.

Yet further proof that christianity is un-American.

I'm pretty sure it's illegal to discriminate against a persons religion, just like it's illegal to discriminate against a persons race. If Myspace did in fact delete this group, it would be the equivalent of deleting an African group because Myspace doesn't like black people.

Heh, didn't you hear above, it's the american way


If someone wants to not allow atheists on their webpages, the can do so. If they want to refuse atheists service in a shop, they can do so. If they want to make atheists use a separate bathroom, they can do so.

Of course, it just shows that these people are small-minded bigots. But it's the american way, heh.

At the moment, we have women in the UK being refused treatment by muslim dentists because they don't wear a headscarf. But it's the muslim way!

wow this is sick, i am not a atheist, i am a heathen
but i support their right of FREE SPEECH

myspace can suck my heathen balls, wonder if they are going to ban me to for being a heathen.

ow btw, the religious right ? this has nothing to do with left or rightwinged, stop thinking in those terms, in my land the biggest protectors of religion are leftwinged and the biggest atheist are rightwinged, so you can not put it into boxes.
