Why aren’t we blaming Bill Maher too?
Because I (and the writer of the linked article) seem to remember him mocking Islam in his film Religulous, in the last 20 minutes or so.
He gave 1 million smackaroos to an Obama superPAC remember?
Not good at all guys.
Bill Maher made a film questioning all religions.
Not at one moment did Bill mock the Prophet Muhammad.
No one was ever killed as a result of Religulous.
So, your/the author’s entire argument is invalid.
Why do people ask questions in tags?
Yes, I have watched Religulous. Which is why I said that I REMEMBERED him mocking Islam.
The Obama administration is calling this youtube video HEINOUS for mocking Islam and saying that it is causing terrorism.
But when Maher mocks the religion that’s okay?
You can’t have it both ways.
Well liberals can, because they don’t deal in objective criteria, but no one with rational thoughts in there head can see this both ways.
I think there’s a bit of difference between Maher visiting the Holy Land and asking Islamic leaders and followers questions than a film depicting Muhammad as a pedophile.
He married an 8 year old.
That’s documented fact.
Facts differ on whether he waited to sleep with her until she was 9 or 12.
But that’s really not helping his case much.
So depicting him as exactly what he was is wrong now?
Having not seen the entirety of Innocence of Muslims (not that I want too), I can’t excactly call anything “right” or “wrong”.
But Maher’s Religulous was made out of curiosity.
While Innocence of Muslims was made to incite hate.
So, maybe you should stop comparing them…
I would say it was made more to bring attention to some of the glaringly TERRIBLE things in Islam.
I highly doubt it was done with then intention of causing terrorist attacks and murders.
That’s on the Muslims (and their religion) who did so.
And maybe I’ll compare it to anything I like and tag it any way I want.
Don’t like it, that’s your problem.
Yes, well. Your comparison is wrong and stupid.
It’s cute how you think I care about the opinion of someone who is trying to give terrorism an excuse.
Because I really don’t.
Not at one point did I say that movie was an “excuse” to kill people.
I just said it was made out of hate.
Let’s look at some terrible things some Christians have done in the name of their religion: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_terrorism
Now, does that make Christianity a terrible religion? No. It doesn’t. It means some people are hateful and just downright crazy, and are using their religion as an excuse to do horrible things.
God doesn’t include a command in the Bible for his followers to, for the rest of time, force people to convert or die.
Unless Muhammed was lying, that’s exactly what he and Allah wanted and commanded.
That’s what the Imams are preaching to this very day.
That’s why men and women in the Middle East celebrate when their brothers, sons, husbands, (and sometimes even sisters, daughters, and wives) blow themselves up in the name of their religion.
Name one time in the last 20 years where a Christian has committed an act of terror in the name of their religion and Christians around the world celebrated and danced in the streets as Muslims do over suicide bombers, as they did after 9-11.
Please, tell me about this remarkable moment in history.
