I saw this young Muslim women on the TV news last night. She was demonstrating against the US over that silly video. The interview asked her _”but don’t you believe in freedom of expression.
Her answer – “Yes, but not when it comes to religion!”
My response – grow up!
That’s why I like this little skit on the current situation (thanks to YouTube video mocking Atheism greeted with global disinterest by Atheists).- I think there are some lessons in it:
A YouTube video mocking followers of science and those who discount the probability of omnipotent deity, has resulted in complete indifference throughout the Atheist community.
Theist comments on the video claim that the video will see “atheists burning down churches the world over!” have been met with blank stares by people who consider themselves ‘atheist’.
Non-believer Simon Williams told us, “I’m not sure what reaction they were expecting, but I’m afraid people saying stupid things on the Internet doesn’t really bother me.”
“What with me being a grown adult and everything. Tantrums haven’t really been my thing since puberty.”
“Do I want to kill the people behind it? No, of course not.”
“Though I would like to give them a few science lessons that didn’t end with the conclusion ‘God must have done it’.”
“But I’m not hopeful.”
Youtube video protests
The maker of the video has gone into hiding claiming that Atheist disinterest in his film has infringed his religious freedoms.
The unnamed producer explained, “It says quite clearly in a passage of one of my holy books – a passage that is definitely open to interpretation in the way that I want – that I must take the fight to non-believers – and yet here you all are refusing to fight.”
“You are oppressing my religious freedom to claim religious oppression.”
“What will it take?! Why can’t you at least throw a rock at me or something?”
“It’s almost like you’re suppressing the evil inside each of you in order not to look like dicks.”
“I’m guessing you get the strength from the Devil himself.”
