aka. Sticks, stones and bombs may break my bones (and blow me to dust in screaming pain, fear, blood and guts as I try to defend the ones I love), but pictures can never hurt me.
So everybody discovered that Islam has a rigid and angry world view and so everybody wanted to make them more angry and rigid. That’s great! And now we got “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day“! So it has come to this?
I have always been against “pointless blasphemy” as it is pointless blasphemy. I guess that today we are going to see Mohammed in a great many situations, often very disrespectful (perhaps fucking a pig or raping a little girl. Whatever the emotionally numb soul can come up with.).
My picture is rather dull I’m afraid, although I went for something I think could be intelligent (a comment on art) as I really don’t see the point of being blasphemous. I frown upon pictures of crosses in pee and other nonsensical rebellions.
But I am for Freedom of Speech!
Here’s the point… Just because you can, doesn’t mean that you should! Even if you have the right to piss upon every holy symbol in the world does not make it right to do so. I think that people with a lack of respect towards others religious beliefs are dead-beats in need of attention they do not deserve.
I think we should respect the Muslims wishes for respect for their traditions, just as I think the Muslims should respect (perhaps “accept” is a better word?) our needs to rebel against everything and nothing.
To the Islamic believer… Why so angry? It’s only our own souls we are perverting by making fun at things we shouldn’t. If Allah and Mohammed told us the final absolute truth in the Qur’an, why do you care that we are in wrong? Why do you have to kill us and make so much destruction in the world?
But the drawings of Mohammed is just pointless blasphemy. No doubt about that.
I did it.
I guess there can be consequences. If Islam is right, then I will burn. But don’t kill me, pray for me instead.. If that’s how your religion works of course?
PS: This blog entry is not an attack on the South Park Mohammed blasphemy nor the Danish original incident. Those two examples are not what I would call pointless blasphemy. In the South Park episodes (Cartoon Wars pt 1 and pt 2 and 200 & 201) there was a point. I would guess the point was “It’s better to laugh at everything than to kill for anything.”
PPS: If it’s not love, then it’s the bomb that will bring us together.
PPPS: I don’t like comedy central. There are two reasons why I don’t like Comedy Central. 1) How they behaved during the airing of the Mohammed episodes of South Park multiplied with 2) their cowardly fear of Islam does not mean that they are afraid at mocking Christianity time and again. As Matt Stone and Trey Parker said “Either it’s all okay or non of it is“. Comedy Central plans animated Jesus sitcom,. WHO DO YOU FUCKING THING YOU ARE YOU FUCKING HYPOCRITICAL FUCKERS! Comedy Central is the worst bigots in the world! Didn’t you watch one of your own fucking shows?
EITHER IT’S ALL GOOD, OR NON IS!!!
Stop making fucking fun of my fucking religion when you don’t fucking dare to make fun at TWO others (Scientology and Islam)! Comedy Central are liberal atheist cowards! They believe in nothing, but are willing to make fun at everything that don’t punch back! FUCK YOU!.
PPPPS: Yet again I would point out that South Park is not at fault here! They make fun of everything. Not only that, they also have a point to it. They don’t just destroy things for laughs as is the case with so much other “satires” and “animated sitcoms” nowadays.
