Yesterday I was so busy with the college baseball postseason and everything else that I forgot to mention it was once again International Draw Muhammad Day! The woman who founded it – Molly Norris – has been in hiding for years because of the Muslim fanatics trying to kill her. But hey, cowardly comedians continue to act like they’re “cutting edge” for going after Christians. I’m a non-believer but there’s no denying that if I wrote something about Jesus having sex with farm animals and corpses that would NO LONGER be daring. Christians have become the cultural “safe targets” so only the most gutless of hypocrites still think they’re being courageous by taking them on.
The truly untamed beast in the world’s religions is the superstitious savagery called Islam. Muslim fanatics kill people simply for drawing pictures they don’t like. In the past there were plenty of depictions of Muhammad in Western art because non-Muslims sure as hell shouldn’t be bound by the rules of a religion they don’t belong to. Only recently has there been an obsession with making it taboo to draw the insane, blood-soaked child rapist who founded Islam. I can’t draw so I’m limited to showing the drawings of others.
Those of us taking on Islam are fully aware that if the Muslim fanatics who threaten us DO succeed in killing us the world is full of cowards who will claim our deaths are our own fault. We don’t care. I don’t follow ANY religion and I will not live according to the rules of the most homophobic, misogynistic and otherwise intolerant religion in the world right now.
WE ARE NEVER GOING TO STOP WITH THE PICTURES OF MUHAMMAD. Well, at least people with a backbone won’t. The weak and the cowardly will happily pretend they’re being “culturally sensitive” by shying away from Muhammad pictures. Then they’ll make a few Jesus jokes to pretend they ARE NOT afraid of religious fanatics.
This man put it best:
“Once they started killing people for drawing Mohammed it became necessary for everyone to draw Mohammed – to show that there are too many to kill, and thus to teach Islam that, whatever its own proscriptions, they do not and will never apply to non-believers. Once you make drawing Mohammed a capital crime, it is necessary to make drawing Mohammed so universal that it’s no crime at all. If you claim the right to kill because you’re offended, then it is necessary to offend you all the time – until you accept the messy norms of pluralistic societies.” Continue reading
