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 one point did I saw that movie was an “excuse” to kill people.
I just said it was made out of hate.
I’m patronizing to everyone that I find ridiculous. You aren’t special.
If you weren’t going to address how patronizing I am, then why did you post that tag.
It was a poorly made, low budget, terribly acted film. It was not made out of hate though, it was made to SHOWCASE the hate of Islam.
The fact that you don’t get that is sad really.
And the more you blame the film for ‘inciting’ hate, the more you are making excuses for the acts of terrorism.
ALL RELIGIONS HAVE DONE HORRIBLE THINGS!
ALL RELIGIONS CONTINUE TO DO HORRIBLE THINGS.
Stop acting like the world would be a better place without Islam.
And that’s where this discussion stops.
Because if you really can’t see how the world would be better without a religion that glorifies abuse of women, murder of gay people, destruction of human rights, destruction of liberty and freedom, and glorifies the use of suicide bombers and violence against those who won’t convert.
Then you truly aren’t worth talking to.
I can’t..I don’t… have you read the bible? or the Quran? everyone in the book is selling their prepubesent daughters our for marriage. the bible calls for the killing of gay people, and people that wear clothes of mixed fucking fabric.
Religions are violent in nature. because the world in that time was a violent place and the only way for Gods to gain any kind of backup was for them to be violent and wrathful.
the Quran also tells it’s followers to be nice to people and not to harm others. all these religious books contradict the hell out of themselves talking about who should live and who should die and if you don’t think that’s true you’re an idiot.
Context is needed here greatly.
As I said to another person.
Name the last time any of those violent commands were carried out in the name of Christianity.
Name the last time violent commands from the Quran were carried out in the name of Islam.
Name the last time a Christian committed a terrorist act and other Christians danced in the streets to celebrate.
Name the last time a Muslim committed a terrorist act and other Muslims danced in the streets to celebrate.
Notice a difference?
if not, get your head checked.
