The Left Desperately Protecting Islam Against Reality

It’s really sad how far the left will go to make sure that nobody ever blames Islam for violence, ever.  They’re at it again in the midst of a preliminary report that the FBI found no convincing evidence that Orlando shooter Omar Mateen had gay lovers or acted out of some kind of shame for being gay.  That means that we’re back to blaming radical Islam for the massacre that claimed 49 lives.  I mean, it isn’t like Mateen didn’t call 911 while in the midst of the massacre and swear allegiance to ISIS or anything.

Oh wait, he did.

But the left can’t admit that.  They refuse to acknowledge that Islam could have had anything at all to do with it.  Even though the FBI has, at least so far, found no credible evidence that Mateen was gay, the left still insists that he must have been because there’s just no way that Islam could have been responsible.  He must have been ashamed of being gay!

And I have to point out, if he was ashamed, what made him that way?  Could it have been… oh, I don’t know… ISLAM?  Funny that it all keeps coming around to religion, isn’t it?  Either Mateen’s religious hatred for homosexuality came from Islam or his religious revulsion for his own homosexuality came from Islam.  That’s a little hard to get away from.

But the crazies on the left just won’t admit it no matter how blatantly obvious that it is.  They can’t get away from it but they insist on being purposely blind to reality.  They are out and out delusional.  They are so ideologically dead set against blaming Islam for anything that they’ll go to virtually any lengths to avoid admitting the blatantly obvious.

And it’s not just this case, there are still lefty lunatics out there arguing that the San Bernardino shooters couldn’t possibly have been motivated by Islam. Because, you know… reasons.  Or liberal ideology.  Take your pick.  But religion?  Never.  At least not religion often practiced by brown people.  Those people need the left’s protection for some reason.  Because the left is fucking stupid.

Sympathetic Muslims

Please let me know if you’ve come across this but this is a new one on me.  On a religious forum, I came across a couple of people who changed their religious lean to “Muslim”.  These are not people who were previously religious, in fact, several of them were open atheists, but all of a sudden, they are Muslims.  So I asked why and I was told that, because of the perceived hatred that Muslims get in the modern world, that they were changing their lean to show solidarity.  So they’re just being Muslims, not because they actually believe, but out of sympathy for the perceived plight of the Islamic people.

Um… yeah.

Of course, it comes as no surprise that these are also self-proclaimed progressives.  I just wonder how far this kind of thing goes? Are they just doing it on the forum or are they answering other surveys and questionnaires as Muslims as well?  How widespread is this kind of thing?  It’s the first time I’ve knowingly encountered it, but for all I know, it’s been happening all over for a while now.

What about other things?  Could we see straight people “identifying” as gay?  Or transgender?  How about white people “identifying” as black out of sympathy? I mean, we already saw the case of Rachel Dolezal who claimed to be black, even though she wasn’t, and made it up the chain of command of the NAACP.  Where does it end?

This is really why I hate identity politics of all kinds.  People just need to be what they actually are, not what they wish they were.  Their emotional well-being doesn’t change reality.  Hopefully, these crazy non-Muslim pseudo-Muslims won’t go running off to join ISIS or anything, but who can tell?  After all, they don’t have a very good grasp on reality as it is, maybe they’ll decide that their newly-minted Muslimness entitles them to start shooting the “enemy” and strapping on bomb vests and taking out heretics to their cause.  Come on, would any of us really be surprised?

Too Crazy For The Crazies!

We finally get it right, talking about crazy fundamentalist Christian Theodore Shoebat, no more chemotherapy for an Amish girl, anti-Muslim rallies are making Muslims nervous, a woman finds a slave figure in her son’s birthday present and freaks, plus the military doesn’t want to give money to for-profit universities.  So get out there and listen already!

In a slightly shorter show, we go heavy on Islam with stories about anti-Muslim firearms, the pagan takeover of Catholicism, Ben Carson entirely misunderstanding our secular government, a Muslim boy gets arrested for bringing a clock to school, plus we look at why so many liberal atheists defend Islam.  Time’s a wastin’, go listen!

Mohammad on Busses?

muhammad_cartoon_big_fat_bookPamela Geller, the same one who put on the art show in Garland Texas that was shot up by ISIS-backed Muslim terrorists wants to see the artwork from the show gracing public busses and subway stations.  She wants to see depictions of Mohammad shown far and wide as a way of proving to the extremists that they cannot impose their religion on others.  As expected, bus and subway operators are hesitant to do so, it would open their operations to substantial risk and potential lawsuits and the left are out screaming racism and hurling insults at Geller, but I think it isn’t a terrible idea, done carefully.

The whole point of terrorism is to either force behavior or restrict behavior based on a threat of violence.  If we change our behavior specifically because of that threat of violence then in essence, the terrorists have won and I don’t think that’s acceptable.  Also, there is no such thing as sacred in a secular society, so giving the Muslims a pass to harm others because their religious beliefs are insulted while restricting other groups from doing the same is a violation of the most basic tenets of American freedom.  You cannot restrict free speech and you cannot respect violence done in response to free speech.  If you do, you’re no longer living in the United States of America.  The idea that we ought to stop drawing Mohammed because it pisses off the Muslims is as abhorrent as closing all of the abortion clinics because they offend the Christians.  Both the Muslims and the Christians need to grow the hell up and get over themselves.

Yet I think both groups, indeed any group, needs to be shown that it cannot threaten people with violence to get its way either. There is no right whatsoever not to be offended.  If something offends you, either don’t look at it or get over it.  Those are your choices.  Pulling a gun and shooting someone isn’t.  That might fly in the Middle East, it doesn’t fly in an advanced western society.  I think the more we offend these people, the more they have to see what they most despise, the less it will affect them if it’s everywhere.  They’re going to have to be pushed to deal with reality as it is, not as they wish it was.  The same goes for the idiot creationists who hate evolution.  Don’t give in, just keep teaching it.  Show these people they have no control over the real world.

It probably isn’t a good idea to put these pictures in public places where the possibility of widespread bloodshed exists.   I support the right of individuals or privately-held companies doing it though.  Someone has to stand up to these radical Muslim animals.  Apparently, the increasingly liberal citizens of America don’t have the balls.

The Con Game.

This time out, we look at Christian death threats, more ISIS murders, liberal anti-vax cartoons and why the whole anti-vax movement is so idiotic, and Yemen, yet another conflict that makes no sense in the Middle East.  Then we take some time to look at the recent Calgary Comic Expo disaster and why radical feminism and other leftist stupidity can be so dangerous.
It’s a good one, don’t miss it!

The Real Question for Muslims

Muslim RadicalI ran into this video over on a Google+ Atheism community and really think everyone is looking at it the wrong way. I think I have the question that nobody is asking, but that ought to be the real focus here.  In the video, which was a panel on Benghazi and the United States responsibility for it, an American Muslim stood up and said that there were many, many more peaceful, non-radical Muslims out there, but that everyone focuses on just the 15-20% of Muslims that are violent fanatics.  Now while I’ll say that 15-20% of any group is a sizeable percentage and one to be very concerned about, I will agree that it is a minority and we ought to be careful not to generalize and assume that all Muslims are secret jihadists, getting ready to murder you in your sleep.  That’s certainly not true and we need to treat decent people, regardless of their beliefs, like decent people.

The reality is, we cannot blame all Muslims for the misdeeds of a lesser percentage of them, any more than people should blame me for the stupidity of Atheism+ and the liberal feminist non-theists.  It’s not my fault, I have nothing to do with their idiocy, but there’s a difference between me and most non-violent Muslims.

I speak out.  I let the world know of my vehement disagreement with the crazy atheists of the world.  I don’t just sit meekly by and let them roll over me with their absurd nonsense, I’m on top of my own personal soapbox pointing out just how ridiculous these people actually are and I’m encouraging other people who feel the same way to do the same.  Muslims, apparently, aren’t like that.  How do you explain that most of the Middle East is run by the radicals, when the radicals are in the minority?  Where is this majority of peaceful, loving, caring, non-radical Muslims to moderate the crazies?

If these peaceful Muslims are really outraged, what are they doing about it?  Are they taking on their crazy brethren, taking to the streets, taking over the governments, shouting down the radical Imams?  Or are they standing up in a panel in America and insisting that people not lump them in with the crazies that the majority of peaceful, non-radical Muslims have totally failed to reign in?  Where are the huge groups of non-radical Muslims marching on Tehran?  Or Baghdad?  Or Riyadh?  Heck, where are the groups of non-radical Muslims marching in London, against the jihadists who insist that Sharia Law be established?  Still too dangerous?  There are more than 2.5 million Muslims in America.  Where are the massive public protests against radical Islam?  Anyone?  The only one that even tried was the laughable Million Muslim March and that was a move toward increased radicalism!

So if you guys aren’t willing to step up and clean up your own house, how can you complain that you’re being lumped in with the radicals?  Pick a side.  Do something.  Stop thinking you can share the religion but not share the blame.  If you’re not willing to collectively speak out against radical Islam, screw you.  I’d be happy to see a big concerted online effort to speak out against it, but you don’t even see that.  Why should I respect Muslims at all if they haven’t earned it?  So long as you’re not willing to be part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

Here we go again!  This week, Fox News falls for a 4Chan hoax, or do they?  Egypt outlaws unlicensed Imams and we wonder where you get an Imam license?  Christian persecution, a new study shows it’s nonsense but the Christians probably don’t care.  Pat Robertson encourages children not to involve the authorities in domestic abuse.  Plus, we have a long discussion on where religious debates go wrong and why apologetics fail but it’s really just the tip of the iceberg. Give it a listen!

How About Questions for Agnostics and Other Religions?

ask-question-1No, please don’t send me e-mail claiming I’ve identified agnosticism as a religion.  I don’t mean it like that, this is another post from the same individual who asked questions of atheists earlier in the week and I’m addressing questions, both asked of agnostics, and those asked of a couple of non-Christian religious groups.  Don’t do it.  Just don’t.

This time out, I’m taking on questions designed for agnostics, Muslims and Hindus.  No, I’m not a Muslim or Hindu but I think it’s important to point out how Christians don’t understand the absurdity of their own questions and how they can, and should be turned around and sent back to them.  The level of irrationality and illogic in these ideas is astronomical.  The original list can be found here if you want to take a look.

So, here’s my take on even more questions.

Questions for Agnostics

1. Of the two possible kinds of agnostic, which kind are you: 1) Strong agnostic who says we can’t know anything for sure? or 2) Weak agnostic who says we don’t know anything for sure (but we could if we had enough evidence)?

Now since I’m not an agnostic in the sense that he’s using it and I think that most agnostics, and clearly the majority of Christians, have no idea what agnosticism is, I’m just going to comment on some of these concepts.  Agnosticism is not some mid-ground between atheism and theism, it is a completely different question.  Atheism/theism addresses the subject of belief.  Agnosticism/gnosticism addresses the subject of knowledge.  One can be an agnostic atheist, one can be a gnostic theist, in fact, everyone, including the person who wrote these questions, is both  because everyone is both.  You are either an agnostic or a gnostic.  You can’t be both, you can’t be neither.  You are either an atheist or a theist.  You cannot be both, you cannot be neither.  The unfortunate fact is that a lot of people with no religious beliefs, people who are, like it or not, atheists, are uncomfortable using the label so they’ve invented this softball middle ground where they can hide from the social stigma they think comes from adopting the word “atheist”.  Too bad.  If you actively believe in any god, you are a theist.  If you do not actively believe in any god, even if you say you don’t know or don’t care, you are an atheist.  That’s how it works.  Now personally, I’d fit into the “weak agnostic” category, using the questioner’s definition.  I think we can know anything, assuming we have the evidence to do so.  There is nothing that is inherently beyond the capability of humanity.  We might not know now.  We might not know tomorrow.  The idea that we simply can’t ever know no matter what we do seems defeatist.

2. If you are the strong kind, then how do you know for sure that you can’t know anything for sure?

I don’t believe that, therefore I’m not going to answer, except to ask those who think that gods and the supernatural are entirely beyond our ability to ever discover, how they justify their beliefs.

3. If you are the weak kind of agnostic, then is it not possible that we could know for sure that God exists (if we had enough evidence)?

Yup, we could.  Let me know when we actually do and I’ll believe it and not before.

4. Do you agree that an open-minded person should be willing to look at all the evidence? If so, then are you willing to look at the evidence for God’s existence?

Indeed, what makes the questioner think for one second that I (or any other agnostic) hasn’t done so?  Far too many Christians are self-assured that anyone who hasn’t become a Christian simply hasn’t looked at the evidence.  What if they have and haven’t been convinced? Certainly, I’ve looked at the evidence that is claimed by Christians, and it’s honestly some pretty piss-poor evidence from what I’ve seen, and not only have I not been convinced that God is real, but I have been convinced that the majority of Christians are clueless and delusional.  A lot of you people ought to be ashamed to believed based on what you accept as evidence.

Questions for Muslims

1. Do you pray five times a day? If you have not done the minimum requirement for a Muslim, how can you be sure you are going to get to heaven?

Well, no.  I don’t.  However, can’t we turn this around and ask if this Christian has done everything that the Bible commands, every single day? How many witches has he murdered?  How many disobedient children has he stoned?  Does he eat shellfish or wear mixed fabrics?  All of those things are in the Bible, yet the overwhelming majority of Christians ignore them.  So, how can they be sure they are going to heaven? Inquiring minds want to know.

2. How can Jesus be considered a great prophet when the Gospels say many times that Jesus accepted worship as God (Matthew 8:2; 14:33; 28:9; Luke 24:52; John 9:38; 20:28-29)?

Again, not being a Muslim, I don’t have to answer it that way.  Jesus wasn’t a prophet, there’s no evidence that Jesus ever existed in the first place, at least not the character as described in the Bible.  Jesus, if he existed at all, was likely an itinerant Jewish rabbi that wandered around the Middle East preaching a message.  He was far from alone, there were messiahs on every street corner in Jerusalem at the time, Jesus just hit the big time, having had the mantle of godhood draped over him posthumously.  That’s what the actual, objective, demonstrable evidence suggests and all the faith in the world doesn’t change it.

3. If our Bible today is corrupted, then how do we know what parts are corrupted?

A better question for the Christians is how do you know your Bible isn’t corrupted, or better yet, how you know that it isn’t wholly made up? I think both the Bible, the Torah, the Qu’ran, the Vedas, indeed every religious book out there, is a load of horse shit, mythical writing by ignorant peasants who lacked the ability to test claims and consider the things that they saw, or more likely heard about third or fourth hand, logically and critically.  Unless these books can be validated by independent sources, and they can’t, there’s no reason to take any of them seriously.

4. How can the Bible be corrupted when Muhammad told people to read it (Sura 5:68; 10:94) and we have manuscripts showing that the Bible of Muhammad’s day was substantially the same as the one we have today?

What Muhammad said and did not say is rather questionable since Muhammad never wrote down a thing in his life, he was illiterate.  He supposedly taught his followers and after he was dead, when he couldn’t re-read his scriptures and “sign off” on them, his followers inscribed all of his teachings and that’s where we get the Qu’ran. How accurate it is, we simply don’t know.  It could have been completely off.

5. How can you believe the Qur’an when it states that “none can change His word” (Sura 6:115; see also 6:34; 10:64), yet it also says that the Bible is God s previous revelation (Sura 2:136; 4:163)? Yet you believe that Jesus never claimed to be God but merely claimed to be a prophet, and somehow the Bible got corrupted because it teaches that Jesus claimed to be God.

The Bible says nobody can change a single word too.  It’s funny how easy it is for future generations to come along and conveniently read the books of the previously generation.  Christians do it today, they pick and choose what parts of the Bible they want to take seriously and then wave their hands around and justify why their decisions are valid.

6. If killing is wrong for religious reasons, then why does the Quran prescribe the killing of unbelievers (Sura 9:5,29; 47:4)?

The same reason the Bible does it?

7. How can heaven be described as a place full of wine and women when this is the kind of life Allah forbids here (Sura 78:32)?

Hey, at least the Muslim version of heaven is better than the eternity of ass-kissing God that the Bible describes. Good thing we have no reason to think that either of them are real.

8. Why do Muslims believe Muhammad is superior to Jesus when even the Quran affirms that Jesus was sinless (Sura 3:45-46; 19:19-21), born of a virgin (Sura 3:47), called the Messiah (Sura 3:45), performed miracles such as raising the dead (Sara 5:110), and bodily ascended into heaven (Sara 4:158), and Muhammad did none of these things?

I don’t think either of them are particularly good role-models.  Jesus spent a majority of his life walking around the countryside with a bunch of male followers who loved him and Muhammad was a pedophile.  Come up with some better role-models, will you?

9. If many Muslims believe that the Qur’an is the eternal Word of God and yet different from God, then why can’t Jesus be the eternal Son of God and yet different from God?

Because religious belief is bullshit.

10. If Allah can do whatever He pleases, then why could He not allow His prophet Jesus to die on the cross and raise Him to life again?

If God can do whatever he pleases, why would he feel the need to throw Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden for doing something that God must have already foreseen?  And then why would God have to flood the world, killing virtually everyone, because they acted exactly like God must have known he would have?  God is a dick. So is Allah.

Questions for Hindus

1. Can you explain why some Hindus believe there is one reality beyond good and evil, and yet they live as though they believe evil is real?

Seriously dude, there are more than 36,000 distinct sects of Christianity and you’re wondering how some Hindus can believe one thing and others can believe a different thing?  Pot.  Kettle.  Black.

2. If reincarnation is a result of deeds in a previous life, then how did the first reincarnation begin?

It wasn’t a reincarnation?  By the very definition of the word, you can only be reincarnated if you have been incarnated in the first place.  Look up the prefix “re-“.

3. If those suffering in this life are being punished for deeds in a previous life, then why show any compassion to help the downtrodden and needy? Are we not just tinkering with their karma and delaying their punishment to a further life?

Because part of the schtick for being reincarnated into a higher form calls for treating others around you, especially the less fortunate, better?  It’s not about lower forms of life being punished, it’s about you getting ahead.

4. If evil is not real, then how did the illusion begin? Why is it so universal? And why does it seem so real?

Evil is a human perception.  It’s true in Hinduism, just as it is in Christianity.  There is no actual evil anywhere.

5. If we must undergo a changing process of enlightenment to discover we are one with the Absolute, then how can we be the Absolute since it is unchanging and never underwent such a process?

There is no reason to believe in the Absolute, just like there’s no reason to believe in God.  These questions are really moot since the assertions that underlie them are empty.  What our Christian here doesn’t recognize is that his own religious assumptions have no more basis in reality than the assumptions by the Hindu or the Buddhist or any other religious group.

I wish that once, just once, theists would turn the questions back on themselves or look at it from a different perspective because it’s painfully clear that none of them do.  They believe what they believe, it’s beyond reproach, even though the very existence of these questions should tell them that something is wrong with their beliefs.  They assume, without evidence, that what they believe is absolutely true, then tell other religions who have the exact same assumptions that they are wrong.

What the hell is wrong with these people?

This time out, we talk about the latest move in Christian moviemaking, the movies that make them feel persecuted.  We watch Ken Ham’s head explode once again following the latest episode of Cosmos.  Feminists reveal their sexism as they hate male-only schools, but a female-only school?  You have to keep that!  The fallout from the recent Joliet, Illinois court case begins and we see that the Catholics are still hiding pedophile priests.  They’ve changed?  Like hell they have!  And we talk about the common claim that atheists are afraid to insult Islam by insulting Islam a lot.  All this and more in this week’s episode of the Bitchspot Report Podcast!

Dialogue between an Atheist and a Muslim

Religion Without FactsI had a Muslim apologist direct me to this on Twitter, as though it somehow proves Islam correct and atheism wrong.  Yes, as anyone who has read similar make-believe dialogues in the past, and it doesn’t matter whether the religion involved is Christianity or Judiasm or Islam, and I’ve even seen one from Buddhism, they all suffer the same sort of fundamental problem, that being these people have no clue about atheism.  This isn’t a real discussion between a real Muslim and a real atheist, it’s a straw-man, held between a Muslim and what they would like to think an atheist really has to say.

They’re wrong.

Where they go wrong in this particular “paper” is clear, it’s on the fourth page where the second Muslim stands up, ostensibly the educated philosopher of the group, and starts making his refutations point by point.  I’ll take those particular statements and point out where they are faulty.

The first point is your basic doctrine that God does not exist.

Of course, this isn’t a doctrine at all, it’s an assertion by the Muslim who cannot understand the basic difference between an assertion that a specific entity absolutely does not exist and the more realistic idea that intelligent, rational people ought not accept the existence of things without significant objective evidence.

I wish to point out that I use the word ‘doctrine‘ knowingly, for the priests of pseudo-science are, in fact, merely promoting atheism as a religion

Things start to go off the rails here as we get some really out-there religious conspiracy theorist nonsense.  Yes, science is just a priesthood of people practicing the secret religion of atheism.  That and $5 will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks.  No, hopefully they recognize your inherent stupidity and refuse to serve you.  Anyone who believes this is too dumb to be trusted with a hot beverage.

Unfortunately, everything that comes afterwards builds on scientific ignorance and religious absurdity.  They cast this imaginary professor as an idiot, not able to answer any of these questions when I’d argue that most scientists and professors could easily prove this Muslim upstart laughably wrong.  He acts on “common sense” theology, meaning he actually doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about, he has no actual science to back up any of his ridiculous claims, only the word of religious zealots and apologists who, as we’ve seen many times before, are not above lying to the faithful and passing along their own inherent ignorance of reality.  The last person you ought to trust is someone who has shown a propensity toward fantastical, emotional thinking on subjects that are best evaluated rationally.  I wouldn’t trust someone who believed in unicorns to be able to pass along any worthwhile knowledge.

The rest devolves into a bunch of irrational silliness.  The supposed Muslim brings up Piltdown as an example of the failure of science, yet doesn’t point out that it was a hoax, perpetuated by a theist, never widely accepted by science, and discredited by scientists.  It’s not a good example to anyone who knows the facts, but of course, the real audience here isn’t educated atheists, but ignorant Muslims.

So why don’t theists have actual debates with real, educated, intellectual atheists?  Because they can’t make these absurdly simplistic arguments against anyone who can easily prove how stupid they are.  Anyone with a clue is going to know that every single one of the arguments presented are just nonsense.

Ask yourself why so many apologetic tools in use by virtually all evangelical theists, be they Christians or Muslims or Scientologists, are aimed squarely at the stupid and uninformed?  Because that’s their target audience. Virtually nobody with a brain is going to buy into their silly crap.  It takes the gullible and credulous to look at these absurd claims and think “yeah, maybe…”

No, not maybe.  It’s time to call these what they actually are.  Utter bullshit, believed by morons who have no grasp on reality.  It doesn’t matter if they’re Muslims or Christians or anything else, it takes a huge degree of idiocy to believe something for which there is no evidence and worse, to embrace any of these really bad, easily disproven ideas for faith.

Horror Show Sunday: It’s a Muslim-Shoot-Muslim World

Shooting Muslims in the name of Allah!

Welcome to another week of the Religious Horror Show.  For those who thought this only happened in some backwards Middle Eastern country, here’s a case of Muslims shooting each other in a backwards Russian state.  Masked gunmen opened fire on Karimulla Ibragimov, 49, an imam catering to radical Islam, in the town of Derbent in Russia’s Dagestan region.  He, his brother and father were killed instantly from gunshot wounds and the attackers escaped by car.  A woman disguised as a pilgrim detonated a bomb strapped to her body in Dagestan in August, killing popular spiritual leader Said Atsayev, 74, an opponent of militant Islam. Suicide bombers and gunmen have killed three other imams in Dagestan this year.

This is commonplace in an ongoing war between Islamic factions, the shooters were members of an opposing faction representing a different religious approach.  Ibragimov represented one of the most vocally extremist factions which were demanding an independent Muslim state within Russia and in recent years, the Dagestan region has been heating up, drawing the attention of Moscow, which, just a decade before, had invaded neighboring Chechnya and ousted a separatist movement, thus restoring Moscow’s direct control.  Some suggest that such an action may happen again in Dagestan against radical Muslims.  This may be especially likely as the region lies only a few hundred miles from Sochi, where the Russians will host the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Hey, does anyone feel a draft?

And while we’re at it, it’s not just Muslims killing other Muslims, it’s Muslims killing Christians and getting killed in return too!  In Kaduna, Nigeria, a suicide bomber drove a jeep loaded with explosives into a Catholic church during Sunday services, killing 8 and injuring over 100.  As with the above Dagestan Muslim group, this was likely done by the Islamic separatist group Boko Haram, which seeks to create an independent Muslim state in Nigeria.

Not to be outdone by the atrocity, angry Christians took to the street with knives, leaving several Muslim men dead in pools of blood.  One youth in a blood-soaked shirt proclaimed “We killed them and we’ll do more!”

Often, it’s hard to even know who to blame for these attacks, it isn’t that one side is innocent, it’s that both sides are equally delusional and equally guilty.  Is it any wonder that religion is responsible for so many horrors?

Muslims vs. Buddhists: FIGHT!

Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight!

Well if it isn’t our old friends, the Muslims, practicing that oft-claimed religion of peace, out burning down Buddhist temples and forcing innocent Buddhists out of their flaming homes.  All in the name of peace, of course.

In Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, hundreds of Muslims rioted, destroying four Buddhist temples and at least 15 homes belonging to Buddhists, after claiming that a Buddhist insulted Islam with an online photo posted to Facebook.  Police brought the situation under control and banned gatherings in the Buddhist area to avoid further violence.

“We brought the situation under control before dawn and imposed restrictions on public gatherings,” said Salim Mohammad Jahangir, Cox’s Bazar district police superintendent.

I always found if funny that Muslims make such a big deal over blasphemy, wanting to impose anti-blasphemy laws everywhere, then they run amuck and burn down the homes of other religious believers.  I guess what’s blasphemous for the goose isn’t blasphemous for the gander.

Of course, we all know that’s not what they really want, they want special treatment for themselves and their absurd religion and the ability to go batshit insane on anyone who they disagree with, or who they interpret as being insulting.  Far too often it seems as though simply holding an opposing belief is insulting and thus, justifies violence.

At least no one was killed in these most recent examples of Muslim peace and love, which is all that keeps it out of the Religious Horror Show.  Never fear though, I have no doubt that within the next couple of weeks, we’ll see even more examples if Islamic tolerance and love for the rest of mankind.

With peace like this, who needs violence?
