Killer Kartoons profound,only in highlighting "Absuridity of Man's Religion"!
Killer Kartoons profound,only in highlighting "Absuridity of Man's Religion"!

What is Organized Religion founded around but the pathetic conceit and ego of man who thinks he is the only important creature created by a select Supreme Being,who also created the vast,(and unreachable) universe for this little flea who calls himself man!

Also if your God is "All Powerful" let him silence and/or exterminate the blasphemers - but then again a God who created all creatures also created (and of course controls!) the blasphemers too? So if (your) God has a problem with anything or any situation He created,then let Him straighten it out!

Otherwise you as a mere human (a flea!) shouldn't be so presumptious and stupid to beleive you know God's thoughts or that you're in any position mentally or physically to be of the slightest aid or help,what-so-ever, to any kind of God or Supreme Being who could ceate an entire,limitless universe! Its time to Smarten Up and smell the B.S!!!

I've long been skeptical of the "Religion of Peace" moniker for Muslims -- for at least 3,000 reasons right off the top of my head. I think the evidence is going my way this week. The culture editor of a newspaper in Denmark suspected writers and cartoonists were engaging in self-censorship when it came to the Religion of Peace. It was subtle things, like a Danish comedian's statement, paraphrased by The New York Times, "that he had no problem urinating on the Bible but that he would not dare do the same to the Quran."

So, after verifying that his life insurance premiums were paid up, the editor expressly requested cartoons of Muhammad from every cartoonist with a Danish cartoon syndicate. Out of 40 cartoonists, only 10 accepted the invitation, most of them submitting utterly neutral drawings with no political content whatsoever.

But three cartoons made political points.

One showed Muhammad turning away suicide bombers from the gates of heaven, saying "Stop, stop -- we ran out of virgins!" -- which I believe was a commentary on Muslims' religious justification for violence. Another was a cartoon of Muhammad with horns, which I believe was a commentary on Muslims' religious justification for violence. The third showed Muhammad with a turban in the shape of a bomb, which I believe was an expression of post-industrial ennui in a secular -- oops, no, wait: It was more of a commentary on Muslims' religious justification for violence.

In order to express their displeasure with the idea that Muslims are violent, thousands of Muslims around the world engaged in rioting, arson, mob savagery, flag-burning, murder and mayhem, among other peaceful acts of nonviolence.

Muslims are the only people who make feminists seem laid-back.

The little darlings brandish placards with typical Religion of Peace slogans, such as: "Behead Those Who Insult Islam," "Europe, you will pay, extermination is on the way" and "Butcher those who mock Islam." They warn Europe of their own impending 9/11 with signs that say: "Europe: Your 9/11 will come" -- which is ironic, because they almost had me convinced the Jews were behind the 9/11 attack.

The rioting Muslims claim they are upset because Islam prohibits any depictions of Muhammad -- though the text is ambiguous on beheadings, suicide bombings and flying planes into skyscrapers.

The belief that Islam forbids portrayals of Muhammad is recently acquired. Back when Muslims created things, rather than blowing them up, they made paintings, frescoes, miniatures and prints of Muhammad.

But apparently the Quran is like the Constitution: It's a "living document," capable of sprouting all-new provisions at will. Muslims ought to start claiming the Quran also prohibits indoor plumbing, to explain their lack of it.

Other interpretations of the Quran forbid images of humans or animals, which makes even a child's coloring book blasphemous. That's why the Taliban blew up those priceless Buddhist statues, bless their innocent, peace-loving little hearts.

Making the rash assumption for purposes of discussion that Islam is a religion and not a car-burning cult, even a real religion can't go bossing around other people like this.

Catholics aren't short on rules, but they couldn't care less if non-Catholics use birth control. Protestants don't make a peep about other people eating food off one another's plates. (Just stay away from our plates -- that's disgusting.)

But Muslims think they can issue decrees about what images can appear in newspaper cartoons. Who do they think they are, liberals?

it's a racist and integrist psyops.
religion has nothing to do with that. it's an oil and dollar thing. the cartoons were released by a danish extreme right journal, the boss of the journal is a close friend of daniel pipes... and...the cartoons are 5 month old...
dollar is dead anyway.

And Jews think that god promised them some mediterranean real estate, and that that gives them the right to murder the inhabitants of that land and take it for themselves.

While "the Jews" were not behind 9-11 (and shame on you for even considering such a preposterous generalization, you nimrod) the people who were behind it most definitely had their own idea of Israel's interests in mind, in addition to the interests of all the world's wealthy war profiteers.

We are currently witnessing a PR campaign because now professors at Brigham Young, Univ of Minnesota, and elsewhere are coming to the same conclusion--the WTC was demolished with explosives (jet fuel doesn't burn nearly hot enough to melt, soften, or weaken a steel structure. See the academic papers at www.st911.org, the free video Loose Change.

The really sad thing is that a lot of people ARE going to hate Jews when the truth comes out, because they will associate the actions of the Bush/PNAC crowd with all Jews instead of just the insane right wing ones.

I'm confident, however, that no wars will be launched as a result, as wars were launched illegally and unjustifiably against the people of Iraq and Afghanista.

God have mercy on us all--this IS going to get ugly.
