Hey, you might find this hard to believe, but ISIS is crazy. ISIS militants shoot people for really idiotic reasons, but this might be one of the most nonsensical. In Iraq, a group of ISIS militants decided to open up on a group of soccer fans meeting at a cafe because, according to them, “football is anti-Muslim”.
Yes, you heard that right, kicking a ball around a field is now anti-Islam. 14 fans were killed in a hail of gunfire and another 20 were injured. I’m sure that taught those heathen soccer fans about the religion of peace!
Luckily, onlookers went after the shooters and at least one was captured by the angry mob. They beat him and lit him on fire, finally displaying his charred corpse outside of the cafe. Considering how many people ISIS extremists have lit on fire, I think that’s poetic justice.
Of course, I expect defenders of Islam to claim this is political, not religious, but clearly that’s false. Saying that soccer is against Islam is clear evidence of its religious nature. And of course, Islam is an all-encompassing religious philosophy. Even if you do claim these actions were political in nature, they are still directly linked to the religious beliefs of the radicals. There’s just no way around it.
So what’s going to be declared “anti-Islam” next? It seems there is no limit to their stupidity, anything, for any reason, or no reason at all, can be declared to be heretical because religion isn’t concerned with making sense, it only wants to push an emotional narrative. Swiss cheese could be next on the list for all we know. Anyone want to throw out some suggestions in the comments? We can have a “ghoul pool” of sorts. What’s the next perfectly innocent thing that Muslim extremists are going to murder over? Let me know what you think. I don’t know that anything could come up that would surprise me anymore on Horror Show Sunday.
