Celebrating defeat


Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Just because this news means I still can, and to celebrate the rights we are lucky enough to have which millions worldwide are denied…

I as a muslim respect all religons even if I do not agree with all of them. I feel anger to both the cartoon publishers and to our fellow muslims who choose to use violence to be heard. Our Prophet (P.B.O.H.)and his followers suffered so much in their time. Trash was thrown at his door every day. They were betten and abused. but they still kept their heads up and praied. They spred the word of Islam not through violence but by understanding and forgiveness. If our Prophet were alive today I do not think he would be proud! Marching to buildings, burning flags, yelling out death chants…. this is not the muslim way! Muslims are not terrorists… they are not evil… just misunderstood. Think about it… are we painting the right picture by acting out in anger?

Us atheists haven’t been abused for a while now. Why aren’t we getting any action?

Hmm, well this kind of abused you, in that it off-handedly rejected your beliefs in the space of about one paragraph. Does that count?
