The recent reactions to the film about Mohammed have to be taken with a pinch of salt. Are we really supposed to believe that all these protesters saw the clip? The fact that most of the demos happened after Friday prayers leads me to think it was an orchestrated campaign by religious leaders. Why should anyone be bullied into silence by these unrepresentative preachers? I’m certainly not scared by this show of force – if there was anything to Islam they wouldn’t be scared of a silly movie.
Remember that the Saudi Arabian monarchy is bankrolling the fundamentalist movement with petrodollars and support of the UK and US. They’re behind the Islamic terrorism and the oppression of women. There’s no democracy, gender equality or tolerance of gay people in Saudi Arabia – they rule by absolute power through their many offspring.
Guess how many royal princes there are in Saudi Arabia?
7000 – That’s a fucking lot of princes. We’ve only got a few in England and that’s far too many.
I’ve seen Facebook posts by Christians supporting Muslims in their anger – WTF is that all about? I’ll tell you – they’re all in the bullshit business together. Nobody with half a brain believes any of this religious nonsense.
Angels, the Holy Spirit, books dictated by Archangel Gabriel, gold plates and the lost tribe of Israel, scientology, burning bushes, the Garden of Eden and a talking snake, Lot’s wife, Adam’s rib, communion, Papal infallibility – it’s all shit.
Let’s stand up to these bullies!
STOP PRESS NEWS
This is not satire 😉
A senior Iranian official, Javad Mohammadi, says US President Barack Obama could face legal action in connection with the production of an anti-Islam movie by an American Jew.
“A complaint could be filed with US courts against Obama for his violation of articles 18 and 27 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) calling for respect of faiths,” the deputy head of the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution (SCCR), said on Sunday.
“Article 18 and 27 of the ICCPR, adopted by the United Nation, stipulate that the religion and the rights of the minorities should be respected,”
The US government is a signatory to this covenant and has to respect it. Therefore, an individual or an NGO (non-governmental organization) can file a lawsuit against the president of the country for breach of the covenant,” he added.
Mohammadi heaped praise on the Muslims for their massive protests against the movie, noting “Protest against insults to religious sanctities should not be limited to time, place and customary reactions and we should undertake legal measures.”
“The world’s elite know pretty well that Islam is a divine religion and Muslims have always respected divine religions and messengers and would never remain silent vis-à-vis any desecration,” said Mohammadi.
PS I’ve just read the ICCPR and it doesn’t say that at all – what a prat!
Not content with rioting about a silly film, fundamentalist Muslims are now turning their attention towards harmless schoolchildren.
In a scary move, reported in the UK Guardian, the Malaysian government has begun holding seminars claiming to help teachers and parents spot signs of homosexuality in children, due to pressure from crazy religious conservatives.
The homophobic Teachers Foundation of Malaysia has organised 10 seminars across the country. “It is a multi-religious and multicultural event, after all, all religions are basically against that type of behaviour,” said the delusional official.
The federal government said in March that it is working to curb the “problem of homosexuality’, especially among Muslims who make up over 60% of Malaysia’s population of 29 million people.
According to a handout issued at a recent seminar, signs of homosexuality in boys may include preferences for tight, light-coloured clothes and large handbags, local media reported.
Of course, everyone knows gays never wear dark clothes or carry small bags.
However the signs were harder to spot in girls, with lesbians supposedly having no affection for men and hanging out and sleeping with women. Really?
Western tourists will no doubt avoid holidaying in Malaysia until Bronze Age attitudes are cast aside and the authorities come to their senses.
All sensible folk will no doubt condemn this crazy development and oppose religious mania wherever it appears.
I’ve been reading about Malaysia this morning and it came as no surprise to find Britain, the former colonial power, was responsible in some way for what’s happening. Not only did we set up the governance of this area in the model of Westminster (with a pretend monarch as well) but we supported Islamic fundamentalist death squads in nearby Indonesia during the 60s. This was done secretly to murder hundreds of thousands of innocent rural folk and destroy the local communist party.
Perfidious Albion or more recently the US are never far from outrages against civilian populations who don’t accept colonial power. As always, ‘divide and conquer’ was the order of the day.

Tensions rise between Muslim and Christian communities amid claims that 11-year-old desecrated text.
On Sunday, houses on the backstreets of Mehrabadi, an area 20 minutes’ drive from western embassies and government ministries, were locked with padlocks, their occupants having fled to already overcrowded Christian slums in and around the capital.
Readers of this blog will know I like to satirise religion and ridicule folks that get carried away praising their invisible gods, but this is perhaps the maddest and most evil development imaginable.
These poor folk – see where they live below – have so little understanding of life and their place in it that some call for an 11-year old girl to die for allegedly burning a few scraps of paper.
In a move that makes the US government seem almost sane, Muslims claim the girl has insulted their religion.
Rifta Masih was arrested on Thursday, after complaints against her prompted angry demonstrations. Asif Ali Zardari, the president, has ordered the interior ministry to investigate the case.
900 Christians have had to leave their houses and the brave few that remained find local Muslim shopkeepers will not sell them food and water.
Local Christians claim this has been made up to serve as a reason for ethnic cleansing.
It’s worth remembering here that Muhammad – alleged founder of Islam – married approximately a dozen females including slaves and young girls. Sadly females are still treated appallingly in many Muslim societies.
To me this proves the so-called religion is based on nonsense or its adherents would be so insecure. Remember the Danish cartoon affair?
It’s not often I get the urge to burn books – I love books – but I’ve got an English translation of the Koran…
