Just burning down one KFC isn't going to cut it. You are going to have to torch them all.

See? Chik Fil-A didn't get burned down because they oppose lebanese and other homosexuals.

We should have a mass Quran burning party while shouting death to islam and muhammed is a false prophet to protest their actions. After that we can storm their embassies in the US and capture their diplomats. Then we can hold a farcical trial and hang them for being blasphemous to atheism. Maybe if they realize we are just as irrational and hateful as them we can find a common ground in which to build a better relationship.
 
2012-09-14 12:55:44 PM  
Damn good thing we have Obama in office now. Imagine if they still hated us over there?
 
2012-09-14 12:56:27 PM

Can't imagine living in a country where you have to be careful of what you say or it could lead to your death.

Do you think you could get enough people together that gives a crap?
Not today because the I Phone 5 came out, and tomorrow starts the weekend and Monday I've got to go to work.

We should invade and spend another few trillion dollars like we did in Iraq for no clear reason.

That would teach em

I was thinking more along the lines of having a few buckets of KFC delivered to their embassies, but if you think this will work.......

Say what you will about poor production values and half-assed skillz, Anonymous can only hope to troll one-tenth as well as whoever made this film (and who now enjoys federal protection, apparently)

There are passages in the Koran that say SINGING is blasphemy because you are wasting your words on 'idle chatter' and not saying how awesome the upper management team is.

Really tough to NOT piss them off.

However, if Christians REALLY followed the Bible, Red Lobsters would be burning as shellfish are an abomination...Why would God make the tastiest stuff off-limits? I'm sure the whole pork thing was made up by the biggest goat/cow distributor in the region to put his pork competitor out of business.

It's not hard to piss off fundie Muslims, most people are just decent enough not too. At least not for no apparent reason.

A few months ago, I recall there was a delegation from some middle east country that came to discuss the issue of free speech with the US State Department. From the article, it seemed like the delegation simple couldn't or refused to understand that having laws against blasphemous speech would be impossible to co-exist with free speech.

I guess it just comes from having grown up here, but I have even a hard time wrapping my head around restrictions on speech in Europe that seem draconian to my sensibilities. I suppose if I was raised in a system where you could be arrested for simply being accused of blasphemy I would have a hard time with it, too.

So I was reading yesterday about why you aren't allowed to depict Mohammed.

Apparently he was worried that if his image was depicted, a large number of people would begin to worship him as an idol, rather than worship Allah. He wanted to enforce the idea that he was simply a man, and not something to be worshipped.

So, my question is, if he was only a man, why are so many followers of Allah willing to kill for the simple act of drawing a picture of him. Sounds like pretty special treatment for "just a man."

Sounds like he's been deified. Therefore he has defeated his own purpose.

The video was tasteless their was nothing wrong with embassy personal denouncing it in order to try to cool off the mob outside.

So religion of peace, huh? More like religion of easily offended. Why can't the damn middle eastern Muslims be awesome like my Muslim friends who like to just sit back, play video games and drink beer.

People don't like it when you spill your logic on their religion. They say it stains.

As I posted the other day, they should be made to fear us. Send in the gunships to mow down the bastards. Our present policies are useless and will only lead to more attacks.

It is still better to be feared than loved.

New Testament, my friend. What things were not mentioned are still in effect, and what things are mentioned have a new rule, so to speak.
So food? Yeah, see for yourself:


Acts 15:28-32

For it has seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay on you no greater burden than these requirements: that you abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from what has been strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell." So when they were sent off, they went down to Antioch, and having gathered the congregation together, they delivered the letter. And when they had read it, they rejoiced because of its encouragement. And Judas and Silas, who were themselves prophets, encouraged and strengthened the brothers with many words.


Colossians 2:16-22

Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath. These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ. Let no one disqualify you, insisting on asceticism and worship of angels, going on in detail about visions, puffed up without reason by his sensuous mind, and not holding fast to the Head, from whom the whole body, nourished and knit together through its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God. If with Christ you died to the elemental spirits of the world, why, as if you were still alive in the world, do you submit to regulations- ...


1 Corinthians 8:8

Food will not commend us to God. We are no worse off if we do not eat, and no better off if we do.

That's just food.

Also, it doesn't take away from the fact that even though it is now OK to eat pork, if you eat a ton of pork you're going to have problems.

And it doesn't change the fact lobsters are the oceans crap-eaters and when you eat lobsters you eat crap.

/yes, even the ones farm-raised
//I really don't like lobster

Wow. I had to look at that for a minute to figure it out, then wished I hadn't!
 
2012-09-14 01:19:35 PM  
Why do we have embassies in places like egypt, libya, tunisia, etc. These people hate us and want us all dead. So why risk our peoples lives for no reason? I am not saying "kill dem der mooslims!" either. I just see no reason to have US citizens in a place they aren't wanted. They don't want us so lets shut our embassies down. Simple as that. No whar whar whar bombs! Nothing but "You dislike us? Well we will no longer have any direct dealings with you and have a nice day good sir."

I wish I could say this is outrageous, but it really isn't.

These people are literally too stupid to live. It's like if the Teabaggers here started getting violent about Obama's birth certificate. I can take the constant lying and denial, but when you start getting irrationally violent in your protests, you've shown you have no place in present day society.

And they can't even focus their rage, and they want us, America, to silence our own for their appeasement. And this is just the beginning.

If the Marines were available at the first embassy and picked off the demonstrators as they scaled the fence, I wonder how many more demonstrations would have happened? These people don't understand diplomacy, just force.
