netweavr: On the anniversary of 9/11?

I'm having a hard-time believing this is spontaneous.


It's the gop dirty trick squad's warm up for an October surprise.

Anyone have a link the the supposed videos handy? I'm too farking lazy to search for them.

Unless of course they're in Arabic in which case I'll just wait for the South Korean animation news report.

Jerseysteve22: You're just as intolerant as those you're criticizing.


Yea, real sorry about that. Real sorry I don't think it's reasonable to continue to allow people to bicker and fight until they start killing each other over who's specific version of the magic sky genie is the right one.

Fark religious people. I'm tired of pretending I should give a shiat about their stupid delusions. It's 2012. Maybe it's a little bit past the time when people have any justifiable reason to keep killing each other over magic.

It would be great if there was someway to transition to an alternative source of energy and stop buying oil from these countries. Imagine the shiatstorm that would start there if we stopped buying the only thing that made them exist

Librals might have forgotten about 9/11, but them moslems sure dint.

spoony_pandora: Well I guess this is what results from a society living under a dictatorship, with all information carefully controlled and censored, for all of these peoples lives. They just naturally assume that if the film got released it must have the governments support or be its official position on things.


I'm glad someone has finally realized this. They can only view the "USA" through their own lens of experience. They know as little about Americans as Americans know about Egyptians/Libyans.
 
2012-09-11 08:37:14 PM

make me some tea: Thanks, Pastor Terry!


"The protests were sparked by outrage over a video being promoted by an extreme anti-Muslim Egyptian Christian campaigner in the US"

Is Pastor Terry an Egyptian now?

Koalacaust: The US's response to these events is sickeningly craven:

The U.S. Embassy said that it "condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims -- as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions."
"Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy," the statement said. "We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others."

Way to stick up for free speech guys.


Free speech =/= tolerating dickbags

We won't muzzle these assholes, but that doesn't mean we won't condemn them.


I would also point out that we generally judge THEM by western laws. They are doing the same. Their laws would result in the death penalty for insulting Islam

Is Kolob available?

Psycoholic_Slag: Vegan Meat Popsicle: The fact that we continue to tolerate this sort of mayhem so that ignorant people can continue to chase after ghosts and magic to explain things they're too dumb or cowardly to understand is proof that most of us never really evolved.

Pftftftftf! Our "civilization" is a thin veneer. We are just a bunch of poo flinging monkeys with bad-ass tool making skills. We are all one catastrophe away from killing our neighbors and eating their children.

Info on the movie (w/ clip)

There was a protester in Egypt with a sign that said "Respect Mohammed PBUH".

I don't know what PBUH is, but I'll respect Mohammed when people like him stop attacking embassies and people in general over stupid shiat like this.

Screw Mohammed!

Reason number 1 why we need to figure out some reliable method of energy generation on a large scale, so we can stop pretending these idiots have any value in the world.
 
2012-09-11 08:39:15 PM
The fact they even believed anything they saw on the internet in the first place is a more serious issue.
 
2012-09-11 08:39:37 PM

Igor Jakovsky: it is EXILED COPTIC CHRISTIANS living over here. They have sort of a right to be pissed, given that they have been massacred and their churches burned. They are probably here in exile under fear of death.


There are plenty of Egyptian Coptic Christians in the US (and Egypt) who are not pissed off or exiled as well. Muslims and Copts in Egypt helped each other out during the uprising and the elections.

Apparently "we" did.

Here's the trailer they're all pissed about:

Sam Bacile, an American citizen who said he produced, directed and wrote the two-hour film
 
2012-09-11 08:40:16 PM
I think the only real answer is to put all religious fundamentalists on an island and have them battle to the death. Those left standing must be worshiping the correct god. Their reward should be a one way ticket to the afterlife of their choice.

Give it another 200 years. Or better yet, if we all start converting to Islam, this wouldn't be a problem -- would it?

I wonder how long it will be before the weak minded Westerners start converting? Kinda like the "Better Red than Dead" crowd from a generation ago.

Attacking other people just because they chose to have faith in something greater than themselves is just as intolerant as a bunch of people getting pissed off because some fringe righty wants to attention whore again. Did you get raped by a priest or something? Where does all this anger come from? Live in let live.

God bless

Christ almighty I'm sick of religious nuts. There is not an iota of difference between Terry Jones and his followers and the ignorant muslims storming embassies. Throw them all together and let the rest of us live in the 21st century.
 
2012-09-11 08:41:15 PM

Cyclometh:

But Terry shares some blame for his acts, which don't occur in a vacuum. He could not have been unaware of what his acts could provoke, and the risk that he was placing people in general, and Americans specifically at by giving these people a reason to coalesce their hatred into this.

Charitably, his acts might be characterized as irresponsible. More accurately I'd say he acted with callous disregard for other people's lives.


As much as I abhor the man, I'd argue that the reaction to the movie is proof of the necessity of making it.

I don't know what the movie is about, and frankly, I don't care. You cannot live your life capitulating to every madman you meet.

tzzhc4: We should set a precident where we nuke a city for every diplomat they kill. Just make sure it is low yield and we keep it above the ground to minimize fallout.


So, what ever happened with that neutron bomb thing from the 80s? Seemed like a good deal. Nuke the people, leave the buildings.

Gormanoglu: Dear religious people everywhere:

If your Deity were truly omnipotent then one would assume that He/She/It would be perfectly capable of fighting its own battles for itself. When you work yourself into a frenzy over an alleged insult made by someone across the planet, you merely suggest to the rest of us that not only is your "God" totally imaginary but He/She/It is nothing more than a psychological projection of your own biases and insecurities.


Dude can I steal that?
While I am Catholic, my views are really evolving into deism. This is a great quote to really drive home several points I argue all the time

Shanghai_Flyer: What does Terry Jones have to do with these incidents?


Nothing, but make me some tea got the troll ball rolling. I'll give him a 10/10 for that. Also the linked article sucks for details. Read Dragon link's link for much better details, like who is actually making the movie.

/that said I don't care if its terry, pissed off copts or a Dutch cartoonist depicting Mohammed in a not nice way. WTF rioters?

Happy Hours: I don't know what PBUH is,


PBUH means "Peace Be Upon Him." Its an honorific bestowed on the five Prophets of Firm Resolve in Islam: Moses (Musa), Abraham (Ibrahim), Noah (Nur), Jesus (Isa) and Mohammed. You know, there is this thing called the Google that can help you find these things out.

Cpl.D: And so it begins. All the foreign religious extremism has given rise to our own religious extremists. And all this noise is precisely the excuse they're looking for to start world war freaking three.

Like so many in this thread, let me try my best to enlighten.

See, you and I both agree - Terry is a flaming assclown. However, he made a movie in America where we have "freedom" (to a degree at least). Yes, he insulted and enraged an entire religion but people need to chill the fark out. You don't burn things down and kill people because you're feelings are hurt. It's what you might call "irrational"... perhaps barbaric in some circles?

madgonad: Free speech =/= tolerating dickbags


Since when does criticizing religion automatically make you a dickbag?

madgonad: I would also point out that we generally judge THEM by western laws. They are doing the same. Their laws would result in the death penalty for insulting Islam


Luckily Sharia law only applies to those who are stupid enough to impose it on themselves. Unfortunately for these protesters, storming a consulate and burning it to the ground is a violation of international law (which they are subject to) and should be treated as such.
 
2012-09-11 08:45:02 PM
dickbag pastor terry is to all americans as dickbags who stormed embassies are to all egyptians/libyans.

if its right to kill everyone in cairo and benghazi because these assholes acted like assholes, its right to kill everyone in florida because pastor terry is an asshole.

You know, I'd much rather stick up for Pastor Terry's right to express his idiocy than make excuses for the actions of a bunch of savages. They want to silence their critics, and you seem inclined to agree. We don't measure a free society by how we defend those espousing popular ideas, but how we defend those expressing unpopular ideas. It's unfortunate to see your sentiment expressed, especially on this day, by so many people.

being intolerant of intolerant people is not hypocrisy, it's the only realistic stance to stop their madness.

I've seen automatic repliers as an early AI project. It's been like 10-15 years. Maybe I'll hire some Indians to adapt it for Fark.
