puppetmaster745: optimus_grime: at least the islamic fanatics are honest about what they want.

christian fanatics trying to claim the high ground are the most pathetic and evil people on earth.

While the Muslim world got all murdery and burny over a stupid video, this was on display in New York:

If you aren't familiar, this work is called "Piss Christ". Look it up.

If you didn't hear about the exhibit, it's probably because of that moral high ground Christians are clinging to.


Are you trying to claim "Piss Christ", which is at least 20 years old, was not controversial and caused no backlash?

Different religions, different buttons that can be pushed. Christian supremists/fanatics are not OK just because Islamic supremists/fanatics are worse.

puppetmaster745: Occam's_Doctor: Farking Islamic fundamentalists

FTFY


NOBODY is out to hand wave away the crimes of these particular islamic fundamentalists. The talk about christians and westerners who are crazy terrorists didn't begin until this troll wanted to make a point that only islamic fundamentalists were a problem. Most of us disagree with that point. Many people pointed out that fundamentalists (or extremists) of all stripes are a danger to civilized society. Nobody came in here from the start trying to character assassinate christians. Get down off your crosses and try not to be stupid for one thread if possible.

Not true. By blaming "fundamentalists", the poster was lumping all religions in with the one responsible for this act. That was where the talk about Christians started. I'm not going all the way back up the thread, but wasn't that the Boobies?

/Or are you trolling?

liam76: Leeds: liam76: Man On Pink Corner: liam76: So if I find an athiest in this thread talking about killing extremists does that mean I can make the argument that athiests are becoming more close tot he taliban day by day?

No, because unlike Christians, one atheist can't speak for the rest. There is no Nicene Creed of atheism.

Yeah there is, it is "I don't believe in religion".

You can't use the nutball actiosn of one from a group to paint the rest.

What if what that person did was in the name of the group?

I could go to Ruby Tuesdays and shiat in the salad bar screaming I am doing it in the name of Jesus Christ, but that doesn't mean you can paint christians based on that.

If the actiosn were done by someoen or a group they elect, then yes go right ahead. If the faith ro sect has a head that endorses actions, then yes blame them (looking at you catholics).

But you still cant take the words of a self avowed leader and try and paint people by that.


So according to your example-

When a run of the mill catholic tries to curtail our freedoms, it doesn't mean that religion is oppressive and evil. But when the Pope indicates that he dislikes freedoms, that would paint catholics as evil and repressive.

Does that sum up your hypothesis properly?

They can be pised off all they want, but it doesn't make them right or mean they have to be taken seriously. And again, it doesn't mean they're OK just because they're not "stabby".


Plus, Xtians have reacted violently to Piss Christ:

http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/02/piss-christ-art-and-violence/

On Palm Sunday in 2011, for instance, a group of radical young Christians stormed a gallery in Avignon, France, which was displaying Piss Christ as part of an exhibit. They made their way past security, threatened a guard with a hammer, broke through the Plexiglas protecting the image, and slashed it with a sharp object. In 1997 at the National Gallery of Victoria in Australia, the work was also vandalized, and gallery officials received death threats for showing it. In 2007, a group of neo-Nazis attacked a Serrano show in Sweden (though Piss Christ was not on display there).


So yeah, I call bullshiat.

There are a lot of incidents that pass through the news where Christian beliefs are part of some crime, or COULD be, and nothing is said about it. Because the reply is always the same: "not a real Christian" and "doesn't represent all Christians". So why are exceptions made and individuals the issue in one case, and dogma and culture in the other, when there's plenty there to implicate all of the above in both cases?

Surely you don't believe that the measure of a group rests entirely on their body count? You do realize that there are other ways of being evil that come up short of killing scores of people, right?

machoprogrammer: First off, this thread is about the Taliban.


So farking what?

Second, until the leaders of the fundies (not isolated nutjobs, there are those in everygroup) start talking about killing off gays, Democrats and whatnot, then it is a really stupid comparison.

The only reason the leading US fundies don't openly advocate killing gays is because it's against the law. Meanwhile:

US Religious Right Presses Anti-gay Laws In Africa
More American Christian Groups Named As Fomenting Anti-Gay Hate In Africa
How Deep Is the Republican Christian Right's Connection to the Anti-Gay Bills Sweeping Sub-Saharan Africa?
US religious right presses anti-gay laws in Africa
US evangelical Christians accused of promoting homophobia in Africa 

So yeah, life under US fundies would be every bit as bad as it is under the taliban.

Guy came into a thread about muslim nutbags, and not responding to anyone else went off abotu christians being worse.

LOTN: Who the fark decided to label these asshats as "fundamentalists" in the first place?

The name largely comes from christianity where "fundamentalism" was a return to a mroe biblical based faith. So technically every major school of Islamic thought is fundamentalist.


LOTN: Why give them a term that makes it seem they're being in some manner closer to the source of their religions. Half these nitwits know less about the history of their advocated deities than I do, and I'm a farking atheist.

I didn't "give" them that term, it was the one coined when they went back to the bible. Though I do appreciate the difference between looking at the teaching of JC vs the bible as being the "source".

I have no problem with religious people who don't bother other people.

I do have a problem with religious fanatics who bother other people, and especially those that think only the other guy does it. When that's proven wrong, it's only a "handful". When that's proven wrong, it's supposedly not as bad, and is used as a platform for bashing the other religion and deflecting responsibility for holding one's own faith and faithful to the same standards.

This is what's commonly called "bullshiat", or "special pleading".

ModernPrimitive01: this kind of thing is why I don't understand why people support the crazed killing in the name of religion crowd. If you're a Pakistani, Afghani, or Libyan, why isn't there a general consensus to stop supporting these people? We have our share of religious crazies here too, but for the most part, they're relegated to silly protests. How do they get that much power in their communities? (I know they have weapons, but still, without a large amount of support I can't see them lasting very long)


You know we have the separation of church and state? They don't. They have power and support because they have the authority of government. When our fundamentalists claim there is no separation between church of state, this is the road they are trying to take us down.

Not that I'm a fan of Albright (I think she belongs in prison), but the sanctions didn't kill the Iraqi children, Saddam did. At first humanitarian supplies were allowed in (food, medicine, etc). Then it was discovered that ALL of those supplies were going to Saddam's military and NOTHING was going to the people in need so those supplies were discontinued. Would you continue to ship food and medicine directily to a mad man's military?

2012-10-16 04:42:49 PM
OOOOPSSS.... forgot to edit that - I'm totally against the raping part. As you know, women don;t have any say whatsoever to the taliban. In fact, they are completely victims in this.

...................................

Ever notice when a drone strikes a house where known taliban commanders had entered for a meeting, the first thing found in the rubble is bodies of women and children???

Muslim men won't bother letting any woman in on the big important business, so the women are left on the main floor as cannon fodder and to lay a guilt trip on Western soldiers.

The men then go down into some sort of sub-basement or maybe a tunnel to another building to conduct business away from pesky women and pesky drone strikes. The men have no balls; they hide behind women, using them as human shields.

No-one told me this. There is no citation for it. I don't need one, I just came to the conclusion myself.

As I have no idea what the hell you are talking about, no it doesn't. Also, while my understanding of Christian tenets is admitedly sketchy, I am pretty sure they don't advocate executing fourteen year old girls for getting pregnant. Most christians I know are actually quite agreeable people. Perhaps your experiences with them were not quite as positive.

Rent Party: lordjupiter: Rent Party: lordjupiter: Rent Party:

All the Taliban has to do is wait for attention to be drawn away by whatever shiny thing is next, and they can murder her in complete obscurity, and no one will give a damn.

Why would they do that? They want attention. They want to send a message.

They want her dead. These clowns murder people every day. They don't care about a message. They believe they are enforcing God's will. The only reason this *got* attention was the whole "oppressed schoolgirl wants an education" angle. They have, just this year, killed multiple police officers, a singer, a Red Cross worker, and the international response to all of that was a collective "meh."

This little kid is screwed as soon as the collective ADD takes over.

Cops, famous people and relief workers aren't the same as a 14 year old girl speaking up as an activist. That's going to get more attention.

Yes, the news cycle will bury this at some point. I don't think the Taliban will "wait" for that, though. The more attention they can get for their flexing of muscle the better.

Oh yeah, the 300 or so people they murdered this year were just a warm up. This girl, *she* is a message.

They don't give a damn about attention. They give a damn about enforcing their will, as they see it as the will of God.



At first, I had thought they were sending a message. But I think you're right. When they want to send a message/get attention/free advertising, they use fire and explosives (not referring to the kind of explosive used to move bullets out of barrels), such as hijacking a plane. They would use bullets just for regular everyday enforcement.

fawlty: Birmingham Police say they questioned two people at a hospital where a teenage Pakistani activist is recovering after being shot

Activist? Really? Can a 14 year old even be an activist? She's a teen who thought and said girls out to be allowed an education. That makes her an activist?


She had the courage to publically advocate women's education despite the personal risk. That would definitely make her an advocate- or even a hero.

desertgeek: Bonanza Jellybean: I'm tired of this shiat. Death to all fanatics!

This. All religious fanatics need to be destroyed for the safety of mankind.


Might as well get rid of anyone who advocates the death of another human.... aw poop.

ModernPrimitive01: this kind of thing is why I don't understand why people support the crazed killing in the name of religion crowd. If you're a Pakistani, Afghani, or Libyan, why isn't there a general consensus to stop supporting these people? We have our share of religious crazies here too, but for the most part, they're relegated to silly protests. How do they get that much power in their communities? (I know they have weapons, but still, without a large amount of support I can't see them lasting very long)


Because the people the religious crazies are fighting against--corrupt politicians, plutocratic warlords, and tribal leaders who consider themselves "above the law"--are no better than, and in many cases are worse than, the religious crazies themselves.

Would all like a word with you


Wrong guys mostly, your point would have been far better made mentioning something like The Srebenica Massacre

fluffy2097: Some 'Splainin' To Do: Hmm. I can't tell if you two are being deliberately ironic or not.

He's being an atheist.


Ahem! I'm an atheist and I don't agree with that statement.

Maybe you should put down that big ol' tarbrush of yours.
