Now I gotta 'splain my previous comment with the mirror a bit, before I wander buttlessly off to bed here.

Y'all got a bit frantic there with spongy and hauled out a huge pile of U at him and that was what caught my attention.

Generally that's not a conversationally beneficial thing to do, as it seems to indicate the likelihood of some unexamined ideas on the part of the U-hauler.

Trust me, I've caught myself plenty of times doing the same thing, or better yet, almost doing it and realizing I better re-think my position.

Thus, the little guy looking in a mirror.

It's useful to examine one's own views carefully before going on the NO U attack and...stealing someone's butt.

Have a good night, whcrow. Buttless Cat is gonna hit the hay.

wellreadneck: No, what Lowes did was take note of the fundies outcry and then distance themselves from followers of Islam who might appear to hate America due to the religious revival that swept their community in the wake of actual rabid terrorists who hated America killing Americans and holding them hostage when establishing a fundamentalist Islamic theocracy.


Um, except she doesn't hate America.  She emigrated here.  There is no indication she supports the current brand of theocracy in Iran, especially since she's obviously a moderate wearing makeup and sporting tattoos.  There is no indication she supported Americans being taken hostage and Iran has plenty of moderates who hated the Shah but were equally let down by the fundamentalists who took over.  Ironically the fundies would have loved it if she was depicting herself as a radical since that's how they want all Muslims to be viewed.  It suits their purposes for propaganda.

wellreadneck: Of course there are Muslims who aren't homophobic.
Had they asked her about the Quran and homosexuality, she would have had to embarass the network in the process of answering and then have had to distance herself from Islam to avoid being an asshole while receiving a reception comparable to that of Robertson's from the fundamentalist Muslims. But that didn't happen in this depiction of moderate Muslims. They made sure the subject of sin wasn't brought up.
The point is how differently we treated Christianity and Islam in this situation . We didn't ask the same questions to each. We avoided placing the Muslim in an uncomfortable position due to a respect for their faith or maybe a fear of reprisal. We had no such qualms with the Christian preacher.


GQ never asked Robertson to compare homosexuality to bestiality. He did that on his own.  That's the point.  There is no indication that they had separate standards since they were interviewed by two completely different organizations.  Of course Robertson got suspended for a couple of episodes.  The conservatives who attacked All-American Muslim wanted it completely pulled and succeeded.

If we were still segregated, she wouldn't have got that BBC in college.
