Celebrating defeat


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 15 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 15 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and write about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

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

  • My views may well have changed in the last 15 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

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?
