Dear Mohammed
11 Feb 2006
Modified: 09:07:08 PM
-><-

Does anyone still think that suppression is an act of respecting others? Does anyone desire that oppression carry on, protected from confrontation?
Dear Mohammed, Esteemed Prophet of Islam:


If respecting the beliefs of others is the reason your adherents are violently protesting, then why do they continue killing infidels – especially Israelis and Gay People?


We know that through the years Christians narrowed down and closed in what the deist Constitution framers desired to keep wide open for America. Their stance was on religious liberty, not the liberty of large groups of people to suppress opposing creeds and non-religious voices.


Look, Mr. Mohammed, I know that divergent Christianity has made your children their scapegoats. I know that Israel, or heretics of establish Christianity, or Gay People, or Atheists and Deists, are far too small on their own to make scapegoats of others, and far too experienced to do the same unto others as they have had done unto them, lest they should be doubly judged.


Why should infidels appreciate your religion when its message is not very inviting? I see that most of your followers where born into a belief system that inspires fear at a very early age. Is it noble that your adherents are mostly comprised of offspring, where those that are not, are merely sheep that were snagged before another ideology brainwashed them?


Why should we respect the tidings of messengers who are headed to an afterlife that welcomes violent indiscriminate death and terror? Many of us do not even respect the tidings of Pat Robertson, or the Pope.


We know that both Islam and Christianity whine that they are oppressed, but they did not speak up for Israel when Hitler did his thing. Surely the indifference of the time permitted Hitler’s successes. Since the oppressors have become the oppressed, should we now stand up for them? Will they continue to oppress others, or will we become the oppressors because of our indifference to their liberty?


How would you feel if the rest of the world joined the Islamic marches, carrying ONLY signs that say, “RESPECT the RIGHTS of OTHERS”? Would you want your people to revolt against such an appeal? I would not think so, unless you blatantly confess that you have no respect for the golden rule, or the law and prophets whose testimony hinges upon it, as well as the golden age that respects it.


Tell me, how are things where you are, right now? What kind of show is Allah running? Would we really want to go to such a place of existence?


I guess my infidelity to Babylon’s Islamic branch of Her collective, diverse, and confusing pool of ‘revealed’ religions, whose gods disagree with each other, will bring me death and hell. I do not even get a democratic determination or vote, never mind self-determination for the individual, eh?


“The voices of our congregation will render unto Babylon double what she rendered unto us.”

IMC censorship excuse: ‘religious diatribe’

Does anyone still think that suppression is an act of respecting others? Does anyone desire that oppression carry on protected from confrontation?

Amen I say to you!!

.

My elderly friends who grew up in Germany agree that the showdown between freedom of speech and freedom of religion has come to what will be made to appear as popular preference once again, but the people will make a different choice this time in that they will want to see proof that the majority is in agreement with the image cast by the media.

More specifically:


The people will make a different choice this time in that they will DEMAND to see proof that the majority is in agreement with the image cast by the media. It will be a DEMOCRATIC vote – not an assumption!
start snitch’n!
12 Feb 2006
Only in this capacity, do I agree with John Walsh of America’s Most Wanted; it is stupid to go along with this stop snitch’n ideology. People everywhere should start snitch’n by standing up in outrage over this assault on the freedom to express grievances to fellow ideologies. They are essentially using fear to threaten us for our free exercise of speech.

* Let's go way back. Muslims kidnap and kill athletes at the Munich Summer Olympics. No Muslim outrage huh.
* Muslims fire rocket-propelled grenades into schools full of children in Israel. No Muslim outrage huh.

It is idiodic to group all muslims in with those who commited any of the acts cited by (@). Lets flip this around once, and look at the response of white men to 9/11 compared to the response of white men to the killing of 500,000 children through sanctions on Iraq. Where is the outrage by white men?
Re: Dear Mohammed
12 Feb 2006
Arabs aren't white? Colin Powel is white? Damn Brad, you have quite the imagination.
Re: Dear Mohammed
12 Feb 2006
Exactly, you can't group all muslums together into one group. The actions of some PEOPLE have nothing to do with the actions of other PEOPLE, connecting the two together based on race or religion is bigotry. Just like I, a white male of german desent, is not responsible or can be linked to Hitler, the actions of some muslims cannot be connected to others. Simple really.
Re: Dear Mohammed
12 Feb 2006
So then you admit to once again holding a contradictory opinion to yourself?
Re: Dear Mohammed
12 Feb 2006
How is that a contradictory opinion of myself?

I am simply saying that individuals need to be judged on individual action, not by a socially constructed grouping of people.
Re: Dear Mohammed
12 Feb 2006
Brad, were you always this simple?
Re: Dear Mohammed
12 Feb 2006
it's not that difficult to be simple... why do people go to such lengths to make things complicated? some christians are burning down churches in alabama and missisippi... but it's obvious not all christians are assholes. some jews believe in jewish supremacy over everyone else and violently attack those who believe otherwise, while the media don't go labelling the jewish people terrorists and xenophobes... but it's obvious not all jews are assholes. some muslims do unconscionable things to others in order to assert their beliefs... shouldn't it be obvious that neither islam nor all muslims are the problem?
Re: Dear Mohammed
12 Feb 2006
What makes you so sure that christians are burning churches?
Re: Dear Mohammed
12 Feb 2006
The problem is Sid's (not all people named sid, just people with the idiodic outlook that sid has). It is simple to blame religion, race or different people for the problems that your culture creates. Much harder to look to the problems your lifestyle bring to the world. But heh, I'm simple.
Re: Dear Mohammed
12 Feb 2006
Remember when Clinton "remembered" when white Christians burned black churches in the South? I believe that after careful examination, it didn't happen. But Brad, if it makes you feel better, we can make believe it did. You need alot of stroking for your hate America, bad white man, can we just hug those who will cut off our heads? Off the trust fund and out into reality>
Re: Dear Mohammed
12 Feb 2006
I never said anything about torching churches. What are you talking about. Who is it that is going to cut off my head? Which race or religion is the official boogieman this week?
Re: Dear Mohammed
12 Feb 2006
"Which race or religion is the official boogieman this week?"

Same one as last week and the week before, The Religion of Peace (TM)
But this week they're not beheading (that's next week when they send the Christian Sciience Monitor reporter to meet Allah)
They're upset about cartoons and burning down embassies and killing people and threateening to kill people.
