“Christians riot, burn British Embassy, demand speech restrictions in response to BBC drama in which Christian beheads Muslim!”
PLUS: if your religion — alone among all others — is so often “misunderstood”, maybe that means it’s just batshit nonsense that sane, honest people of good will can’t wrap their minds around.
And here’s a helpful hint: all that raping of little girls you get up to doesn’t help.
Now: a few folks have expressed confusion about yesterday’s post here about the Koran.
Charles Manson claimed he got his ideas from the Beatles “White Album”. But only an idiot would take him seriously and arrest the Beatles as accomplices in the murder of Sharon Tate, ban their albums, write 900 page reports on their lyrics (and maybe even some of Charlies’) and hold expensive conferences at which non-British non-musicians debate what they really meant.
(It would be equally stupid, if not downright scary, for “openminded” [empty-headed] people to startlistening to the Beatles after Cielo Drive, for the stated purpose of “sympathizing” with the poor, innocent Beatles and their hippie “misunderstanders” — but of course such a turn of events is unthinkable, right?)
Even the most obsessive or delusional Chomskyite didn’t look for clues about the “whys” of Watergate or Vietnam in the Federalist Papers.
Likewise, obsessing over what the Koran does or doesn’t say is a waste of time for all but a few serious, scholarly individuals. For others it is mental masturbation, to preoccupy oneself in what seems like a worthy endeavour in the fight against Islamic terrorists.
When treating a victim for hit and run injuries, the make of car, its mileage and other minutia is irrelevant. Yes, those things are very important when prosectuting the driver, assuming he is ever even arrested, but right now we’re still bleeding on the ground.
I don’t care what Muslims “really” believe or what some dude wrote in 1602 or what “translation” is better.
Muslims don’t even know themselves; most of them can’t even read.
As demonstrated in the Mark Steyn show trial, tedious Koranic exegesis and apologetics is close up table magic designed to baffle gullible suckers.
You’re trying to make sense of the nonsensical heretical musings of an illiterate, hallucinating boy toy/pederast.
With straight faces.
What we really need to do is stop immigration from Pakistan and other crazy Muslim countries filled with illiterate, violent tribal peasants.
And if they get here, figuratively crush them if they get too uppity, a la Mohammed El-Sharpton and his sockpuppets.
Oh, and start killing more of the bad guys before they get over here and sucking off the public teat.
