Ain’t shittin’ ya: Facebook page Best Shape of Your Life
Tony Perkins of the “Family Research” Council (FRC) is upset over Facebook’s response to anti-gay harassment:
“… Apparently, anything they construed to be anti-homosexual will be stripped from the site. Where does that leave Americans who morally oppose the lifestyle and want to help people find freedom from it?…”
Where does that leave people like Mr. Perkins (see below image)? Well, I “morally oppose” the christian “lifestyle” of pathological lying and sociopathic behavior, but I don’t call for their fucking deaths, just the richly deserved ridicule and scorn.
Facebook founder is being investigated by Pakistani police for violating their country’s blasphemy laws, which carry the death penalty, in reaction to the Everybody Draw Muhammed group.
… a Pakistani High Court judge summoned the police after lawyer Muhammad Azhar Siddique filed an application for a First Information Report (FIR), claiming that the owners of Facebook had committed a heinous and serious crime under Section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code. In essence, an FIR launches a criminal investigation. But no charges have been filed.
“Heinous and serious crime”? Drawing a goddamned picture? Of a long dead person who absolutely nobody knows what the hell he even looked like? Or, do they mean heinous and serious as in poisoning girls’ schools, throwing acid in children’s faces? Honor killings? Punishing severely women who are raped? Morality police who flog women in the streets for showing a crack of ankle? Heinous and serious crime like that? Or, do they mean the laughable concept of blasphemy?
According to the paper, Section 295-C of the penal code reads: “Use of derogatory remark etc, in respect of the Holy Prophet, whoever by words, either spoken or written, or by visible representation, or by any imputation, innuendo, or insinuation, directly or indirectly, defiles the sacred name of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) shall be punished with death, or imprisonment for life, and shall also be liable for fine.”
But, but, he’s not a holy anything. He was a lunatic that heard voices, like all other religious lunatics, like the religious lunatics that are “investigating” the creator of Facebook for an imaginary “crime”. Why are persons outside of the islamic faith subject to islam’s inside rules? Islamists are pushing for the U.N. to adopt global blasphemy laws. Even Christians in the U.S. think their bullshit religion is above criticism.
What the hell, people, is this a joke? A Facebook group “gays should be shot dead”. And it has 27 members so far. I just now joined Facebook to look for this group, and found this one instead.
Update 3/2: It looks like the pages have been removed.
The hateful, anti-gay rhetoric that is being tossed around like crazy, keeps getting crazier, and bolder.
This tweet I received this morning, names redacted, reports a FaceBook page entitled “Gays should be lined up and Shot”. I do not have a FB account, but this makes me want to get one; and I think I will because this is only the latest I’ve seen of the many, many manifestations of intolerance and hatred being fanned out in public. Ignorance is being perpetuated with intentional false-witness campaigns by the religious right.
The leaders of these well-financed, national Christianist Political Lobbying organizations (who should start paying taxes!) have been coming out full-throttle with public statements regarding the arrest, incarceration, forced “conversion” “therapy”, and even the deportation of openly gay citizens. It is very alarming and they must be called out and called attention to. This is hate speech.
Dominion theology proponents have been creeping into our political system for many years now. Uganda is their societal testing ground for what they would like to see in the United States.
