Muslim Morons At It Again!

Yes, folks, it's true, for according to the BBC today, "Muslim scientists and clerics have called for the adoption of Mecca time to replace GMT, arguing that the Saudi city is the true centre of the Earth."

Aye, 'course it is, and the Moon is made of green cheese, and the inmates really are running the lunatic asylum.

But does anyone in authority outwith the would-be Caliphate raise a voice of dissent at these ridiculous assertions?

No, because (a) religions are held to be exempt from criticism per se, despite the fact that all religious belief is truly psychopathological, and (b) anyone who has the temerity to criticise the repressive nonsense that is Islam risks being murdered by some of its adherents who believe that they will be rewarded in a non-existent place called "Paradise" for committing homicide in the name of their spurious "god".

Next, they'll want us to believe that it's OK for a man to beat his wife with a stick if she disobeys him.

Or that adulterers should be killed by lapidation.

It would be excruciatingly funny if it wasn't so egregiously sick.

there is clearly no end to the amount of shit that flows from the fundaments of the fundamentalists (or are they just mentalists who speak from their fundaments? )

Tsk-tsk, good sir! Of course it is okay for a man to beat his wife with a stick if she disobeys him, BUT the stick can be no thicker 'round than his thumb.

I'm quite sure the ladies at the other end of the stick are grateful for such protective measures.

On that note, I'm also quite sure that rainbows will shoot out my arse if I pray hard enough. *roll eyes*

Audrey,

Apologies, for I've only now noticed your comment butI'm sorry to disappoint you - there is no order in either the Quran or the Hadith that the stick should be no thicker than a man's thumb; that claim is a myth put about by apologists for Islam, some of whom are Muslim, to divert righteous indignation at their misogynistic religion's treatment of women.

Why, it's rather like Muslims claiming that killing adulterers or apostates from Islam by lapidation is not cruel provided one beats their brains out with smooth stones rather than jagged rocks.

It would be funny if it wasn't so fucking sick - but then all religious people are, psychodynamically at least.
