My Right to Say "Islam Sucks"

Posted by libhom Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Religions should be subject to any criticism anything else is. The notion that religions should get special treatment is not just patently offensive, it discriminates against those of us are atheists.

In case you are wondering why I chose Islam in my title when any religion would be deserving, the reason follows: (Scoop Independent News 3/26/09)

More Than 180 Organisations Reject Defamation Of Religions Campaign

More than 180 rights organisations worldwide, including 27 IFEX members, have banded together to oppose a "defamation of religions" campaign at the UN mounted by Islamic states that would make criticising religion a crime in UN resolutions, declarations and world conferences.

Most recently, Pakistan, on behalf of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC), tabled a resolution on "combating defamation of religions" at the current session of the UN Human Rights Council. Although the text refers frequently to protecting all religions, the only religion specified as being attacked is Islam. The resolution is to be put to a vote on the last day of the session, 27 March.

OIC, an intergovernmental organisation comprising 57 states with majority or significant Muslim populations, has stepped up its fight for the concept of religious defamation to be added to UN resolutions since the 11 September attacks. Pressure to protect religions from defamation has been growing, especially since the Danish cartoons controversy in 2005.

Instead of dealing with the oppressive and violent aspects of Islam, these countries want to stifle perfectly legitimate criticism. It's the same mentality and agenda of the militant, Christian fundamentalists here in the good ole USA.

These nutjobs all need to get over it and to get over themselves. I forgot who said it first, but one person's religion really is another person's belly laugh.

A funny, anti religious blogger Pat Condell has a biting response to this resolution. (Hat Tip to MuckMakers)

    Of course the Islamists want to silence their critics. Not only can they not answer the criticisms, they can't even discuss them. The prescription to subjugate women and non-Muslims as second-class citizens, the flogging or stoning of homosexuals, adulterers, and even rape victims, the acceptance of child marriage (including by the prophet Muhammad himself) -- they can't deny that these things are part of Islam, because anyone who actually studies Islam in depth will find that they are there, mostly rooted in primary sources such as the Koran and hadîth that no Muslim can repudiate. Nor can they defend such practices in plain terms. To do so, in any civilized country, would mark one as a madman. The only solution is to make the critics shut up. If riots and death threats won't silence people like Condell, Hitchens, Hirsi Ali, Ibn Warraq, and the Danish cartoonists, they'll try to use the UN to discredit them.

    Condell is great as usual on this subject. Living in Europe he has had plenty of opportunity to see the Islamists there in action. They're Europe's equivalent of the American Christian Right -- but on steroids, and with rabies.

  8. Islam does suck -- period.

    Sorry to all the multi-cultural, politically correct lefties out there who want to push the notion we're all one, big, happy family because this just ain't the case.

    Islam informs the peoples of Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and Yemen that gay men and lesbians deserve to die in the name of Allah.

    Fact.

    There are relief agencies in the U.S., the UK, Germany and France, who exist to get LGBT persons out of those shithole nations in the Middle East because their lives are in danger.

    Fact.

    The only thing that prevents this from happening in the U.S. is the separation of church and state. Otherwise, I wouldn't be alive and well and blogging today.
