I usually don’t cover Islamic atrocities. or even malfeasance. After all, there are other bloggers out there that do that a great deal, and far better than I ever could. However, I saw a story today that twists reality into a delicious irony sandwich.
Here’s the set up: During a Halloween Parade, Atheists dressed as parodies of religious figures. One was a zombie Pope. Another, who is the sad subject of this story, dressed as zombie Mohammed. That prompted a quick and violent reaction from a local resident, who is a Muslim. For the rest of the story, check this out, via Weasel Zippers…
Via Opposing Views:
The Pennsylvania State Director of American Atheists, Inc., Mr. Ernest Perce V., was assaulted by a Muslim while participating in a Halloween parade. Along with a Zombie Pope, Ernest was costumed as Zombie Muhammad. The assault was caught on video, the Muslim man admitted to his crime and charges were filed in what should have been an open-and-shut case. That’s not what happened, though.
The defendant is an immigrant and claims he did not know his actions were illegal, or that it was legal in this country to represent Muhammad in any form. To add insult to injury, he also testified that his 9 year old son was present, and the man said he felt he needed to show his young son that he was willing to fight for his Prophet.
The case went to trial, and as circumstances would dictate, Judge Mark Martin is also a Muslim. What transpired next was surreal. The Judge not only ruled in favor of the defendant, but called Mr. Perce a name and told him that if he were in a Muslim country, he’d be put to death. Judge Martin’s comments included,
“Having had the benefit of having spent over 2 and a half years in predominantly Muslim countries I think I know a little bit about the faith of Islam. In fact I have a copy of the Koran here and I challenge you sir to show me where it says in the Koran that Mohammad arose and walked among the dead. I think you misinterpreted things. Before you start mocking someone else’s religion you may want to find out a little bit more about it it makes you look like a dufus and Mr. (Defendant) is correct. In many Arabic speaking countries something like this is definitely against the law there. In their society in fact it can be punishable by death and it frequently is in their society.”
This is ironic and instructive. And when you can combine fun with learning, it’s a beautiful thing. First off, if the attacker was a Christian, and the judge was also Christian, would he have gotten off free? I don’t think so, because Christians believe in law and order, and generally eschew violence. And, come to think of it, it might have been at least a blurb on the national news, as it makes Chrsitians look bad. However, since the attacker is a Christian, there is going to be a lot of silence on this story.
Secondly, Atheists, Feminazis, homosexuals, Muslims, and a host of other groups attack Christianity on a regular basis. They proudly and loudly do so, and are rather persistent at it. However, those same groups seem to shy away from attacking Muslims. Of course, the common answer is simple. A Christian, when attacked, is instructed by scripture to turn the other cheek, and pray for their enemies. Muslims, on the other hand, are instructed to kill everyone who opposes them. And, the judge is correct, Mr. Perce would likely be killed for his prank in a Muslim country. The answer then? Christians are a soft target, they aren’t likely to fight back. Islam is a rather violent religion, and their Koran demands the death of infidels.
Mr. Perce was assaulted by one Muslim. What if there had been twenty? What if there had been one hundred? And, what if there were a Muslim judge to declare them all innocent for his eventual murder? This is something that our Atheist friends might want to consider as more Muslims enter this country, and clearly don’t “get” the religious freedom, or the freedom of speech, that our Constitution protects.
In the end, I cannot take the atheists, feminazis, gays, and other critics of Christianity, at all seriously. They claim that Christianity is oppressive, yet they mostly ignore that Muslims kill apostates or infidels, commit honor killings of female family members, and hang homosexuals. But, we don’t see them being protested. We don’t see demonstrations outside of Mosques. Nothing. If they were serious about their issues, they would take on the people that would kill them, rather than the ones that would pray for them. They are cowards and hypocrites, and are not worthy of the tiniest bit of credibility.
