Yesterday two Muslim jihadists highly trained in military tactics broke into the offices of France’s most iconic satirical magazine Charlie hebdo and systematically called out names and crimes against Islam and executed the entire executive staff. As they left the building they sprayed the street with automatic gunfire
Are the jihadists so base level IQ, so uneducated, so twisted that they have never actually read the teachings they are vicariously angered on behalf of? Ingrained into all eastern and Middle Eastern religions is the concept of debate, it is in fact so ingrained that the theatrics of it are taught and even rehearsed in most schools of religion.
In Buddhism one of the most comical things I have ever seen is a yard full of monks and geshe students slapping prayer beads over their wrist in another’s face while practicing debate.
This concept is ingrained to some level of every other religion as is questioning teachings even in Christianity.Surely only through constant questioning the teachings can you really ever find your truth.
When I grew up my religious upbringing was a Heinz 57 variety of Baptist, southern Baptist, assemblies of god, and Salvation Army. The iconic southern Baptist preacher tony campalo used to say that god isn’t truly happy until two Christians are debating the sermon because it means it hit a nerve and they care.
If anyone can show me in Islam and the Quran where it says draw and picture and we will send a black ops team i’ll scream “IN SHA ALLAH” Have we become such a violent world, a cynical world, that we know longer sit around “chewing the fat” arguing with friends over what the preacher really meant?
Imagine the hit squad that the Vatican could have sent on the Monty python team for the life of Brian
never have their been two more religoulsy irreverant films made in the history of movie making and like charlie hedbo it was done so intelligently, maybe thats the hook the jihadists can’t handle intelligent discussion of religion because it shines a light on their evil, it shines the light on how they’ve twisted the teachings for their own wrong cause.
Get over yourself Islamic jihadists, if you truly want the troops out of your lands, Islam for the Islamic, sharia law to rule and if as you call us anyone outside the Islamic world is a “soulless infidel” why do you care what we write? what we draw? because according to the venom your jihadists spew we are mindless bugs to be ignored?
If you want to rule Yemen, Qatar the Saudi Arab emirates Iran ,Iraq, Afghanistan malaysia and indonesia or any other islamic state fine, if you want rule with sharia law and threaten any true believer with death for impugning the prophet that’s your prerogative inside your lands.
However when you step outside to the world of the infidel it doesn’t make you righteous to murder anyone who speaks about your prophet it makes you a fucking hypocrite, it makes you the mindless bug, it makes you the court jester in the court of gods. So what now? do we send back hit squads to your world? Shall we blow up your magazines, your mosques, because you don’t believe John 3:16? we got over that shit in the crusades, hell not even the Jehovah’s witnesses and the Mormons have the cohones to set up shop in downtown Baghdad.
If you the cowards behind the masks, in the balaclavas who hide in the shadows think you represent the world of righteous people who walk in the light you are deluded, you are nothing more than criminal’s lowlifes who slaughter women and children.
The only way out of the darkness into the light for any religion is with open arms, open hearts, open minds and the power of the people through whatever medium they choose.
To finish, and old southern Baptist preacher friend of mine Gavin brown used to start every sermon with a reference to the rapture by yelling “IT’S FRIDAY” and the congregation would yell back” BUT SUNDAY IS A COMING”
So to the cowards who hide behind religion YOU STILL LOSE?
