You are viewing the Archives for 2007.......If you want the current page, CLICK HERE.......

Or, at the very least, most obvious, courtesy of LC Readerjp. The whole piece of dreck is a primer in moral relativism, so if you feel up to it and have a barf bag ready, go read it. A few choice passages:

Allah is portrayed as providing the moral justification for the most horrific terror attack in history, one in which many fellow Muslims were also killed.

This document may seem macabre, but it reflects a breed of fanaticism that infuses numerous faiths, certainly not just Islam. The Jewish extremist Jigal Amir, who assassinated Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995, also claimed he was merely carrying out God’s will. And strict tutors at Jesuit colleges might use the same language as the “guide’s” Islamic author when demanding absolute obedience to superiors and total dedication to God: witness the teachings of Ignatius of Loyola, the order’s founder: “I believe that the white that I see is black if the hierarchical church so defines it.”

Ignatius of Loyola, we might point out, died in 1556 and, to the best of our knowledge, we haven’t seen many attacks on innocents committed by fanatical Jesuits lately. We haven’t seen any, to be more specific, and if there had been any, we’re pretty sure that most if not all Christian denominations would have denounced them immediately, unreservedly and loudly.

As opposed to the very recent attacks by Islamic fundamentalist that have yet to see a single denunciation by ANY Islamic denomination.

But of course there’s no difference there. None at all.

Throughout history, the Abrahamic religions’ claim of absolute authority has exerted an irresistible appeal on fanatics, encouraging them to impose their own faith on nonbelievers and dissidents alike - if need be by using fire and the sword. To this day, nearly all religions supply the kindling that fuels wars and acts of persecution, sparks torture and murder, and inflames ethnic hatred. Examples abound: the bloody wars between Hindus and Muslims in India,

Instigated by Muslims.

or the enmity between Muslims and Christians in Indonesia.

Also instigated by Muslims.

And your point, other than the one on top of your head, is?

But in the early 1990s, the French sociologist Gilles Kepel pointed out in his book The Revenge of God that extremism was once again surging among Muslims, Christians and Jews.

As proven by the many, many terrorist attacks committed in the name of Jesus and Hashem. Well, except of course that there weren’t any.

Jewish fundamentalists are striving to reestablish Judaism in the largely secular state of Israel and to expel every last gentile. Citing biblical role models, self-appointed henchmen launch crusades against everything deemed an enemy of the Jewish state.

Examples of these “Jewish Crusades”, please? What? You don’t have any? Well, never mind then.

Yigal Amir, who assassinated former Israeli premier Yitzhak Rabin, claimed that he had not committed a murder but carried out an execution. “Congratulations on the happy occasion,” a sympathetic student mocked on the Internet after Rabin’s death. “The evil sorcerer is dead.”

Wow! You found one Jew who assassinated a prime minister? Well, that sort of settles it, doesn’t it? Let’s just forget about the fact that 99.999999% of all other terrorists attacks were committed by Muslims. No difference there. Tell you what, you shmekel, I’m against ALL forms of murderous extremism trying to gain by violence what they can’t achieve at the ballot box, and I’d happily send a round of FMJ through the skull of ANY nutjob wishing to commit murder in the name of ANY god, I wouldn’t lose one second of sleep over it even though I’m a fundamentalist Christianist through-and-through, but let’s cut a deal here. We start off by putting an end to murders committed in the name of Islam. We have to start somewhere, and that one move would take care of the vast majority of religious murders in the world, thus making it much easier to deal with the tiny fringe of subhuman crazies committing atrocities in the name of other gods.

I’m just being pragmatic here, irrational fundamentalist that I am. I don’t see any significant threat from fundamentalist Jews, Buddhists, Pagans, Atheists or Christians, since they’re not the ones responsible of millions of murders, but I will deal with them in time if I have to. I’m just one of those annoying analysts who insist on plugging the biggest holes first rather than wasting time that we don’t have arguing whether “all holes are equal” or not.

Trust me, I’m one pissed off American and I am about as firm in my faith and beliefs as they come but, for all of my angry rants and hyperbole, if I were ever present when some psychopath was trying to murder even my worst ideological enemy for the “crime” of disagreeing with what I believe in, I’d gun the psycho down in a heartbeat because I believe in freedom of speech more than anything else.

Killing in the name of the Lord? Look no further than the Crusades and the Inquisition. Deus lo vult (”It is God’s will”) was the Crusaders’ battle cry. Popes had called upon Christendom to liberate Jerusalem and the Holy Land from Muslim rule. Beyond the prospect of rich plunder, the Crusaders could expect forgiveness for all their crimes.

Leaving aside for the moment that the Crusades happened some 700-800 years ago, making them not terribly relevant to the situation we’re facing today, the main reason for them happening in the first place was that the entire Western world was threatened by a rapacious, unrelenting, military onslaught from the “Religion of Peace.” It’s called “self-defense”. Look it up. Byzantium wasn’t too terribly keen on being wiped out and put under Caliphate rule, much like any other sovereign nation in history has shown a natural aversion to being obliterated, so they pointed out to the rest of the Westerners that they’d be next on the list, which is undeniably true.

Now, most of the Christian leaders who picked up the sword and went off to the unforgiving and barren lands of the Levant could’ve just stayed at home, enjoying their vast estates and their lives of ease, and Pope Urban fully realized that he needed some incentive to convince them to look beyond their own noses, so he invoked the name of G-d. It doesn’t really matter what motivation he used, the fact of the matter is that if it hadn’t been for the much-maligned Crusades, there’d have been nothing stopping the Muslim hordes from chewing up Western Civilization en detail.

There’d have been no Renaissance, no Enlightenment, no industrial revolution, and if you disagree, just go visit a madrassah and ask them how they feel about science. But, all that aside, whether you think that penicillin and hot and cold running water is a good idea or not, the fact remains: The Crusades were defensive wars. The Crusaders didn’t start them, they reacted to an outside threat and fought it to preserve what they believed in, right or wrong, as is the right of all sovereign nations.

And, in the end, it doesn’t really matter. The Crusades and the Inquisition are OVER.

Jihad, on the other hand, ISN’T. It’s as much of a threat as it was in 1096.

And THAT’S the real issue here.

If the Religion of “Peace” wants to live in peace and practice their religion, I have no problem with that. I consider their religious dogma abhorrent and primitive, but that’s for them to decide.

We “Christofascists” don’t run around flying passenger airliners into mosques and I do believe that it’s a difference worth noting.

You leave me and mine the fuck alone and I’ll leave YOU alone.

If you can’t live up to that, then I’ll kill you.

Without mercy.

    In other words, you have to be a moron to contribute to Dean Esmay’s World. Not all of us can set such low goals. I think he’s discriminating against those who are excessively intelligent.

    You always notice the anti-religion people complain when someone does somethng bad and claims it’s the will of God, H’shem, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster, but you never hear them complain when someone does something good and say it was God’s will. For the love of blind, random chance, would some anti-religion folks PLEASE complain about all those people who start charitable organizations because they believe it’s God’s will? I’d like to see some consistency with the anti-religion crowd.

    So what do we do about the self made jihadi bastards who hold positions in public colleges (thanks Mike Adams!) as and have blog sites that read as follows: The (ALMOST) CHENEY ASSASSINATION: AN INSIDE JOB!

    I’m sure there is some rationalization (undoubtedly absurb regardless of offered reasons) that our domestic brand of, “moral relativists” will be eager to offer up in defense of this towel wrapped alpha hotel…

    And they wonder why I love our Emperor.

    Islam is unique among all the religions because it is also a totalitarian political ideology. Islam requires Muslims to bring the whole world under Islamic law, by force if necessary. No other religion makes such a requirement of its adherents. You can’t reform that requirement out of Islam, because the result would no longer be Islam.

    Mohammed was a murderer, rapist, thief, and pedophile. You can’t have a decent religion with such a monster as its Prophet.

    How does someone write a “column” like this without noticing its internal inconsistencies?

    If you were writing this would you not proof-read it and think to yourself “hmm, my example regarding fanaticism in these other religions is 700 years ago, that probably will sound dumb.” [scratches self] “ah, what the heck, people will think I’m an idiot but why not, I’ll leave that in.”

    Then he gets to the part about the assassination of Rabin… “I wonder if I can use this example given that it was one guy decades ago and it was Jew on Jew violence” [scratches himself again]. “Ah what the heck, I’ll leave it in because it is really the only Jewish thing I got”.

    And of course, the Crusades and the Inquisition have to be mentioned because, well, because that is the last refuge of the non-informed.

    I’ve said it a million times and I’ll say it again: The only good Muslim is a VERY DEAD Muslim. Islam is the most vile of all Theologies, started by a murdering pedophilic drooling imbecile who liked to have sex with goats (after he was done with the children). Mohammed, thou art the greatest (piece of shit who is burning in hell as we speak). :flush_tb:

    I was quite young when Amir killed Rabin, but I am fairly sure that when this happened, virtually every Jew in the world condemned what Amir did. And when Baruch Goldstein killed 29 Muslims in 1994? Yeah, us Jooos condemned that one too, really fast. In fact, Meir Kahane’s party got banned in Israel. How’s that for a reaction?

    A-hem, ClimbingFreeman

    If someone did somethin’ nasty claimin’ a holy right to mayhem, and I don’t “complain”, then I must have been among the first snuffed.

    but you never hear them complain when someone does something good and say it was God’s will.

    To complain about something good would be stupid.

    ‘Not speakin’ for everyone, but I don’t know anyone who complains about anyone doin’ good no matter where the inspiration comes from.

    Your wish for consistancy is cheerfully granted.

    I don’t see any significant threat from …Atheists…since they’re not the ones responsible of millions of murders

    While I’m certain you weren’t thinking of it in the same vain as Jihad, surely you realize that Atheism, as perpetrated through socialism is responsible for millions upon millions of deaths.
    The arguements may come from both sides (false god vs. no god), but the end result is the same.

    Sure, but they were murderers because they were socialists, not because they were Atheists. Nor were they socialists because they were Atheists, the two do not naturally follow. Or, to put it another way: Although most if not all socialists are Atheists, not all Atheists are socialists.

    It sucks. And its undemocratic. And its inconsistent with the fact that Arab members of the Knesset regularly commit acts of treason and yet are never sanctioned (let alone banned from politics) for doing so.

    Argive, I know you didn’t mean it as such, but why does everyone always refer to Meir Kahane in the same breath as the Is-lame-o-nuts?

    Kahane merely pointed out that it is impossible to ignore the ingrained hatred of Muslims for Jews in the Middle East and that therefore it is unrealistic to believe that Jews and Muslims can live side-by-side unless and until Muslims renounce their fanatical xenophobia and Islamic supremacism. He didn’t advocate killing anyone.

    Thank you, your dreadedness! :clap_tb:

    Would that I could bake the words into hardtack and force-feed them to Ann & Bill.

    I still maintain that socialism/communism is a religion. It even has its own icon. Christians have a cross, muslims a crescent, humanists the Happy Man (see wiki), Buddhists a dharma chakra (sp?), and communists a hamer & sickle.

    Please write this down, “The Dafyyd ab Hugh-style atheist is on your side.”

    Thank you, your dreadedness! :clap_tb:

    You’re quite welcome, my friend.

    I’m quite tired of the meme that Atheists are somehow “immoral by nature.” It’s bullshit. There is nothing in the “Atheist creed” preaching immorality and, on top of that, I know quite a bit of close Atheist friends that are QUITE moral, the Imperial Firearms Advisor and his lovely wife being but two of them.

    I agree that the fact that you don’t believe in an afterlife with consequences of your actions here on Earth makes it EASIER to be immoral, but it DOESN’T logically follow that an Atheist, therefore, HAS to be immoral.

    It’s a violation of simple logic, and it pisses me off.

    Yes, Christianity is inherently moral because it preaches morality and, if you ARE a Christian, you know that the punishment for ignoring this is quite severe, but that DOESN’T mean that you can’t arrive at the same conclusions about what is right and wrong using a different path.

    And don’t anybody disagree with me and come over there and draw a fucking Venn diagram for them! :smile1_tb:
