I think too that humour is a hugely powerful weapon against such awful cults as Islam, and right down to the little insignificant cults like the JW's, along with disgusting political ideologies, usually very Right Wing.
I agree! Satire is a powerful weapon against religion and dumb ideas in general, but of all earth's ass-backwards religions, Islam is by far the least satire tolerant, and the apologists and moderates that use moronic words like "islamaphobe" keep it that way. You have two problems shielding Islam from getting what it deserves, Radicals & Moderates/apologists. Put something offensive to Christians on social media, no problem, put something about islam it will likely get yanked as offensive.
To illustrate cowards like obama and his cohorts want everyone to feel that burning qurans, drawing the prophet Mohammed etc.can invite backlash and win new recruits. Seems that way doesn't it? So here is what we should think about then: if so called moderates want to say terrorism has nothing to do with the Islamic religion, why does insulting it invite more terror?
The Texas 'Mohammed drawing' contest was guaranteed to draw violence and it did.
Charlie Hebdo?... we know how that went
We can make fun of Moses all day... no Hasidim is going to strap a bomb to his ass and try to blow us up
We can make jokes, sometimes extremely profane and debasing about Jesus... no one is hunting the person down to kill them.
So my point is this, one of the greatest weapons to fight the radical nature of this religion is censored especially by the moderates/apologists. You just cannot ridicule Islam!
Make fun of it and:
- Oh you are a racists!!!!
- How dare you, you islamaphobe!!!
- Shhhhh be quiet, if you tease them more will become radicalized!!!!
This is why I get so irritated at Islam and everyone wants to debate the atrocities of other religions in some sort of contest. The reality is you can make fun of them all but not Islam, and those of you that scream racism, inequality, and islamaphobia are the big problem to allowing it to be shown for what it is.
