and another thing…

Muslim extremists, grow the fuck up.

So somebody made a cheap-ass YouTube video mocking your religion. So what? So they said something rude about the Prophet Mohammed. You think nobody ever said anything rude about Jesus? Or Abraham, or the Buddha? Have you ever seen the Buddha’s hair?  Looks like he’s got a tea cozy on his head. And here, look — it’s Jesus portrayed as the clown from a Stephen King movie. Do you think Christians would get all upset about that?

Well, okay, yeah, you’re right — they would. But they wouldn’t start burning down embassies. You could probably make a picture of Jesus fucking a sheep and nobody would be burning down embassies (and lawdy, I just did a Google Image search using the keywords ‘jesus fucking sheep’ and sure enough, there’s a picture giving a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘lamb of God’).

Muslim extremist guys, here’s the thing: that movie was a piss-ant insult. When you respond with violence because somebody says ridiculous shit about Islam, you’re suggesting Islam is feeble and delicate. You’re suggesting the Prophet is so weak and frail he needs to fret about what a small group of idiot film-makers have to say about him. But you know what? It’s not Mohammed who’s weak and frail. It’s you. It’s your faith in Islam that’s weak and frail. Truly devoted Muslims just shrug that shit off, because no puerile, half-witted video can damage their faith.

But you guys? You guys are just being dicks.

  1. Well, I have been thinking on this very subject now for a couple of days…time to put my WordPress account to use.

    This, like everything else you write, is spot on, Greg!

  2. Your problem is you defend Obama but HE refuses to criticize islam even with 10% of the intensity you did above.

    And of course you will now scour the internet looking for quotes of Obama condemning ISIS.

    Hey pal, ISIS burned 19 women alive the other day. Last night they killed FIFTY GAYS.

    And YOUR President AND HILLARY still REFUSE to call them “radical islamists” or whatever.

    But don’t worry, you can snicker about Trump while taking your pictures. Just bring a friend with you now to watch your back when you go out to take photographs, in case some muslim decides to come on you from behind, thinking you’re gay, or Jewish…

    or because you criticized them above….

      I didn’t criticize Islam; I criticized Islamic extremists. Elsewhere on the blog I’ve also criticized Christian extremists, and probably Jewish extremists. The problem isn’t Islam or Christianity or Judaism — it’s the intolerance and hatred of extremists.

      And yes, President Obama has criticized all forms of religious extremism, including Islamic extremism.

      I suspect I’m MUCH more at risk of being attacked by a Trump supporter than a Muslim. Hell, for that matter I’m MUCH more at risk of being accidentally shot by some fuckwit gun owner who failed to secure his weapon. Far more people in the U.S. are killed or wounded every year by negligent firearm discharges than by Muslims.

      But thank you for being concerned about my safety.
