The Bully Cries Foul: Religion on the Ropes
The Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) —This week the OIC won United Nations backing for a draft resolution that would outlaw “defamation of religion” throughout the world.
(Read the whole ridiculous article here)
For thousands of years, religious idiots have been saying that our Humanity is evil. We are told that a just and loving God is going to condemn us to Hell for all eternity, and only the “holy” people from their religion are going to go to “Heaven”. To get there, the advocates of religion never miss an opportunity to explain to the world what kind of slimy, cruel, and ugly creatures we are.
They call this human-bashing “ministry”.
In every mosque, church, and temple on Earth, people are educated against the evils of being human. Sex is evil. Gays are to be killed. Heretics should be burned. These are real-life, modern theologies that are preached every day in this modern world. Yet now, as education and awareness are growing (mainly thanks to the internet) these self-same anti-human bigots are at the UN begging for protection from the “defamation of religion”.
Give me a God-damned break.
The world’s biggest bully, Religion, is now finally being confronted by a people who are starting to think for themselves. Their response? The bullies are trying to call the schoolyard teacher (the UN) to protect them.
As long as any clergyman in any religion is willing to take to the pulpit and tell the world how scummy humans are, there needs to be protections for an equal and opposite point of view. That the OIC now wants the UN to protect them, while at the same time publicly condemning every Westerner for their evil and godless lifestyle, is as absurd as it is offensive.
I’ll go head-to-head with the claims of any religion. But I’ll be damned if I will stop criticizing the bullies because they’re finally getting a taste of their own medicine and can’t handle it. As far as I’m concerned, stories like this are a testament to the fact that we might now (finally) have these power-hungry, human-hating bigots on the run from their own accusations. Now is not the time to back off, shake hands, and be nice. Now is the time to hit harder, challenge every hateful word that comes out of their mouths, and hopefully put an end to their absurd attack on the human condition.
A special thanks to The National Secular Society for the heads-up on this story.
