Believe or Die

Afghanistan. Some guy converts from Islam to Christianity 16 years ago. He moves to Germany. Now he returns to fight a custody battle for his kids and is arrested, charged with apostasy and is now awaiting his death sentence. For converting.

If ever you want to see an insecure religion, check out Islam. If you are a Muslim, then leave, you're dead. And I don't mean the Stephen Colbert, "you're dead to me", dead...I mean literally. Under Sharia law (which is pretty much a huge contradiction in terms), if you leave Islam, you are threatening them, and thus you must be killed. No real wiggle room in this one. Renounce the Prophet, fuck you and your sucking chest wound.

I'm not really sure if there's the same debate about Muhammad as there is about Jesus with respect to whether or not he actually lived, but regardless, I'll go on record here to say that there was no one flying anywhere on any winged horse. That's just something children would think up. Anyone else thinking Pegasus? Let's throw Hercules on top there just for fun.

You know, it's not a case of the Emperor not having any clothes with Islam (or any other religion, for that matter), it's that there is no Emperor. We're just making shit up. And now with Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger calling for a United Nations of religious groups, you'd think maybe they'd talk about, oh, I don't know, maybe "opposition to any killing in the name of religion", and solve this silliness. Nope. The biggest problem with a meeting of religious "minds" is that they won't think for themselves, because they're not allowed.

Killing someone because they've stopped believeing in your invisible friend and retarded rules...you know, in the dictionary under "insecure"....
