The tagline of this website is "Articles and opinions on the absurdity and danger of religious beliefs". If you want to see the absurd and the dangerous combining in grand style, you could do worse than click here and read about the first outbreak of polio in 10 years over in Indonesia.

"Officials believe the outbreak can be traced to Nigeria, where vaccinations were suspended in 2003 after radical clerics said they were a US plot."

Not just a US plot, mind, but a "general Western plot against Muslims worldwide" no less.

Radical clerics with conspiracy theories? People trusting them because of their status? Shit consequently hitting fan? Surely not.
