British Islamist Abu Mounis at the December 2010 “Islamic Awakening Conference” calling for Muslims to attack democracy and replace it with Islam. It’s not enough, he says, to preach to the few and convert a few. He says they must make all of society bow down and submit to Allah.
Hey, I got something to tell ya: Fuck your imaginary ‘allah’. The Qu’ran is the incredibly poor writings of a paranoid schizophrenic sex abuser. Judaism, Christianity — all made up, all proven false by science and archaeology; Jesus and most of those characters never existed. Kinda fucks up any credibility for Islam, let alone it’s own failings.
Bill O’Reilly thinks that an invisible man in the sky controls the motion of the ocean tides and there’s no other way to explain it. What a Pinhead! Yes, the man who wrote a book called Pinheads and Patriots, the man who constantly talks over guests who hold opposing viewpoints and berates and insults them, says that it’s insulting for someone to say that religion is a scam and calls his guest, Dave Silverman, a ‘loon’. O’Reilly has used his “tide goes in, tide goes out, sun comes up, sun goes down” argument on several occasions to “prove” god exists, as Steven Colbert shows in this clip.
Christians who are offended by this ‘scam’ message, are offended about only the christian part — they will readily inform you that all the other religions referenced on the billboard are scams, and don’t you dare question or criticize or mock their beliefs! And so will Muslims do the same, and on and on. They’re all full of shit, and they’re all scams.
Over 500, that’s five hundred, Muslim scholars, who are considered moderates, are praising the body guard who murdered Pakistan’s Punjab governor, Salman Taseer, over his opposition to the country’s severe blasphemy laws. Cheering lawyers showered flowers on the killer, Mumtaz Qadri,as he was fescorted into court.
Taseer has been criticized, by moderate Muslims, for his support of Asia Bibi, the mother of small children who has been imprisoned for a year for allegedly blaspheming the “prophet” Muhammad, and a majority of Pakistanis want her executed.
This is moderate Islam. From MSNBC:
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Lawyers showered the suspected assassin of a liberal Pakistani governor with rose petals as he entered court. Some 170 miles away, the prime minister joined thousands to mourn the loss of the politician, who dared to challenge the demands of Islamic extremists.
The cheers and tears across the country Wednesday underscored Pakistan’s journey over the past several decades from a nation defined by moderate Islam to one increasingly influenced by fundamentalists willing to use violence to impose their views.
Even so-called moderate Muslim scholars praised 26-year-old Mumtaz Qadri for allegedly killing Punjab province Gov. Salman Taseer on Tuesday in a hail of gunfire while he was supposed to be protecting him as a bodyguard. Qadri later told authorities he acted because of Taseer’s vocal opposition to blasphemy laws that order death for those who insult Islam.
As Qadri was escorted into court in Islamabad, a rowdy crowd patted his back and kissed his cheek as lawyers at the scene threw flowers. On the way out, some 200 sympathizers chanted slogans in his favor, and the suspect stood at the back door of an armored police van and repeatedly yelled “God is great.”
Many other Pakistanis were appalled.
The response from the United States Secretary of State Clinton has been very weak, no mention of the horrific acts being committed in the name of religion, no mention of blasphemy laws, only a generic ‘we-will-help-them-in-their-time-of-turmoil’ bullshit. Here is a good WashTimes editorial on it.
Twenty-six year old Walid, or Waleed, Husayin (pseudonym), a barber in the West Bank of Palestine, was trucked down and arrested because of his satirical Facebook claims to be Allah.
Their faith is under attack from the West because a Palestinian barber questions Islam? Lunacy.
He could face a life sentence if he’s found guilty, depending on how harshly the judge thinks he attacked Islam and how widely his views were broadcast, said Islamic scholar Tamimi.Even so, a small minority has questioned whether the government went too far.
Zainab Rashid, a liberal Palestinian commentator, wrote in an online opinion piece that Husayin has made an important point: “that criticizing religious texts for their (intellectual) weakness can only be combatted by … oppression, prison and execution.”
Good point, no? Lock her up too!
This man’s own family and townspeople want him imprisoned for life and/or dead. But, why would they dare say anything different, lest they be locked up, too?
Meanwhile, a Pakistani doctor has been arrested and charged with “blasphemy” because he threw away a business card of a pharmaceutical rep whose name is Muhammad. The rep turned him. Why isn’t the rep guilty of blasphemy for comparing himself to Muhammad, as though tossing his business card equaled tossing the “prophet”? And, why isn’t naming your kid after the “holy” “prophet” a form of blasphemy itself? Using the fucked-up logic of religion, a living person named Muhammad seems to be more of a likeness than drawing a picture of someone who nobody knows what he actually looked like.
Nothing in religion makes sense.
It makes my stomach turn when I hear apologists’ claims that Islam is a Religion of Peace™ and that, meh, it’s just a few extremists giving it a bad name. Bullshit.
The few extremists in Pakistan, comprising most of the population of Pakistan, are threatening to explode the country into violence if the government pardons Asia Bibi, a Christian woman, accused of “blasphemy” by her peaceful, loving Muslim co-workers.
A CNN report the other day showed Asia Bibi’s children wondering if their mother would be executed; then reports came that the government was considering dropping the charges and setting her free (to be mobbed and killed by angry, peaceful muslims). Her husband and children, one of whom is disabled, had to flee their village because of death threats from their neighbors, who are filled with Allah’s love and peace, of course.
The Pakistani government fears it’s own fucking people if they remove the controversial blasphemy law, as some are calling for; the fucking Quran (unlike the fucking Bible) doesn’t even call for death in the case of blasphemy — that was later added by “scholars”.
The town cleric stated (in the CNN video) that he had “tears of joy pouring from his eyes” — not for the possible release of this poor innocent woman, but for his beloved “prophet”; he said that Bibi’s death sentence was one of the “happiest moments of his life”. That is just fucking sick. And the sheep go with it, unanimously agreeing (or else) that she should be hanged.
Religions are cancers in this world.
This is too Allah-damn funny, I can’t stand it. Muslims in Indonesia have been praying in the wrong direction. Baaahaha!
JAKARTA (Reuters) – Indonesia’s Muslims learned on Friday they have been praying in the wrong direction, after the country’s highest Islamic authority said its directive on the direction of Mecca actually had people facing Africa.
Muslims are supposed to face the holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia during prayer and the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) issued an edict in March stipulating westward was the correct direction from the world’s most populous Muslim country.
“But it has been decided that actually the mosques are facing Somalia or Kenya, so we are now suggesting people shift the direction slightly to the north-west,” the head of the MUI, Cholil Ridwan, told Reuters. “There’s no need to knock down mosques, just shift your direction slightly during prayer.”
Stupid, stupid sheep.
