FF Top Ten: March 27, 2010

Hello, and welcome to the Sunday segment of Filipino Freethinker’s bi-weekly Top Ten news. We’ll be taking a short break from the Vatican’s slew of sex scandals to take a gander at other relevant news from the past few days, starting with a jarring article on the plight of Ethiopia’s women.

When a society promotes forced rape, it makes you wonder at just where government should draw the line on respecting cultural and religious boundaries in order to truly serve the interests of its people.

On a more positive note, Youtube’s Thunderf00t has recently posted a new video, and there non-belief related news brewing over in Copenhagen.

But don’t let me spoil the surprise – Check out the links, and remember to submit your favorite snippets of the week over at the Filipino Freethinkers forum’s News Thread!
