I killed that fat barkeep!
For help on how to follow a comic title,
Has anyone else here been amazed by how acceptable anti-muslim rhetoric has become? I mean, I remember those post september 11th days. I was still in high school then.
But one thing I remember is that there were still people (including the priest at the church I attended) who were able to differentiate between the fanatics who launched the attacks, and Muslims as a whole. I can still remember Father Seleva telling us that it was at this time that we needed to reach out to, and protect, and I quote “our Muslim and Sikh brothers and sisters.” He was talking about the Muslims and Sikhs who were being assaulted in the wake of 9-11.
How many priests would be brave enough to use the phrase “our Muslim brothers and sisters” today? Far too few,I am afraid. Far to few.
That’s right, kick me when I’m down.
@ billdog - Don’t worry, I don’t actually want to ban people from saying it. I’ll just give them stern looks of disapproval. I may shake my head and sigh.
If I could ban any phrase, “It’s the economy, stupid,” would be in the top twenty. Or maybe the top thirty. There’s a lot of agonizingly stupid phrases I’d like to ban.
As an agnostic….
I find it interesting that we saw this same exact comic like, five days ago.
Yeah, deliberate ignorance isn’t that strong of an argument, charlie555.
In general, most states governed by a single religious group aren’t exactly havens of tolerance, dfowensby.
I’m curious about what you mean by “muslim governed country”. Are you talking about countries where the government is actually theocratic, or just countries where the majority of people are Muslim?
“they even slaughter “infidel” sects of their own faith.huh”
Again, it’s difficult to think of a religious group that hasn’t done this, while in power.
And none of this changes the fact that the US guarantees freedom of religion. Full stop.
The mosque isn’t going up on ground zero. It’s about two blocks away. And you, know, freedom of religion, and all that.
comYics sez: “mosque of victory on their attack site.”
Oh, come on, Dale. I’m sure you can make it more pithy and pointless than that. Make that whole sentence into a set of acronyms. You can do it, man.
Yeah, get rid of those last 50 years of progress!
I mean, who needs civil rights legislation, right? The free market will decide which ethnic group deserves to be treated fairly! Hope and change!
I drink quite a lot of the booze.
