UK minister evokes Monty Python to defend Rushdie
The Life of Brian was attacked because it ridiculed something that deserved it. I think most of us young'uns won't be aware of the magnitude of these attacks. There was a huge controversy when the film was released. But thats the point. It showed that you were allowed to criticize Christianity out loud. In public. That because some people take a belief very seriously - it doesn't mean you have too as well.
It's this same effect that Muslims worry about now. Though the Satanic verses isn't the book to do it, and threatening death to those that might criticize is just a way to prevent that bubble being popped - in the way Monty Python did so well.
What lot of future hopefuls is a newly launched group" The "Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain" to voice the views of those who have left Islam. Who have said:
"Too many things in the media and government policies have been geared to pandering to the political Islamic movements and Islamic organizations"
"I hope we'll get a lot more attention and begin to change the debate."
But it's not all good, the President of Gambia has used his Magic Medicine (and Allah) to cure 33 people of the HI Virus.
What's also great is that he starts his monologue by boasting that he isn't afraid of touching them. The Cunt.
To read more about this whole debacle go to BadScience.net. Its far to depressing to relate here.
(P.S. Sorry for the lack of pictures recently. I'm working on that...)
