When I saw this latest vid from Pat Condell my thoughts immediately turned to Damian Doyle who is always so quick to attack me every time I post something that is even vaguely critical of Islam. So it is to him and to all of those minions of the left who bend over backwards to defend the “religion of peace” with cries of “Islamaphobia” whenever it is even mildly criticised that I dedicate this post.
Just one more question Damian, do you have any Gay friends and how do you reconcile Islam’s murderous attitude towards homosexuality with those friends?

With all due respect, Iain, that’s a stupid question on which to conclude this post. To many, Christianity isn’t much kinder towards gay and lesbian people. Refer Leviticus 20:13: ‘If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.’
Well Nigel I say to you with equal respect that a little scorn no matter how hurtful is very small beer compared to this (warning Graphic images)so I stand by my point.

Informed rational freedom loving people have all the reasons in the world to fear islam. The twin fogs of political correctness & ignorance must be dispersed before western society better understands this menace. Even a brief review of islamic theology & history quickly exposes the deadly roots of this evil ideology.
Mohamhead was a 7th century murdering warlord who rose to power on a river of blood surrounded by thugs and gangsters using intimidation, violence, deception and trickery to expand their criminal empire while mercilessly suppressing and killing their opponents and enriching themselves on stolen booty.
The evil koran is a collection of sayings and speeches by this diabolical madman claiming divine guidance from some mythical sky-god which has inspired generations of crazed fanatics to abhorrent behavior resulting in historys worst ever crimes against humanity starting 1400 years ago and still continuing even today.
Islam is just another fascist totalitarian ideology used by power hungry fanatics on yet another quest for worldwide domination and includes all the usual human rights abuses & suppression of freedoms.
and some snappy infographics, great for emailing…
can’t say I disagree with that…
thanks why zee
Yeah, and Christianity has some pretty gruesome history too. How’s the Vatican and the RC church going – all above board?
Look, I think I can reasonably claim to be one of those “Informed rational freedom loving people” you speak of, but I certainly don’t live my life in fear of Islam. There have always been fruit cakes and murderous regimes but don’t you actually understand that they have just about been beaten and no longer represent a great threat to western society? They’ve tried and lost – now they’re just killing each other.
you don’t have to “fear” Islam to be critical of it, In fact there is a great deal of value of being aware of the underpinnings of that faith so that we can understand just how its adherents think and what motivates them to behave in the way that they do.
Be critical of it by all means, Iain, but when that criticism is driven by fear it becomes irrational and over-the-top resulting in hatred and knee jerk reactions to anyone resembling a muslim. Racism is a fear-based reaction too – isn’t it strange how those who protest loudest against muslims are usually anti-aborigines too (eg Pauline Hanson). It’s all fear-based, and this country – or a significant percentage of it – is still under the hateful and narrow-minded Hanson/Howard influence that she instigated way back in 1996. Case in point, the comment by “why zee”, who is obviously so frightened he makes up weird screen names to hide his identity lest some muslim out there comes after him.
I do understand that you have this blind spot when it comes to Islam, for some strange reason you seem to see any criticism of Islam, its public image, and its ideology as essentially misguided and counter productive to social cohesion. However I think that in a robust multicultural society there should be no need to pussy foot around issues of religious dogma and the things that have shaped any sort of religious ideology especially if it is done in a polite and respectful manner .
After all would you not be willing to criticise those who have other sorts of supremacist ideologies like the various “white power” nutters? In many ways Islam is just like them.
Finally as much as I decry the use of pseudonyms I don’t think that its fair to imply any particular motives to the use of a screen name by “why zee” we simply don’t know his/her reasons for that choice.
hey thanks for posting my comments 🙂 sadly yes i have had a few mooselimb stalkers on the internet, no this is not a pleasant experience, no i do not wish to meet these nutters in person, no i am not courageous enough to use my real name & photo, yes i really do think normal people can have a healthy fear of adverse events. my mum survived ww2 on the losing side & from what i’ve read there was plenty to fear about your neighbors & their ideology yes ? other responses can appear as either denial, willful ignorance or blatant manipulation eh ? of course fear is not the only valid response, i would also add anger & motivation to resist…
as for xnity vs. islam, my standard take: there is a need to distinguish between the ideology & the history of it’s followers. using this approach its quite easy to see how superior xnity is, ie. “love your enemy” and “seperation of church & state” but then since we’re all weak humans we can corrupt even the most loving ideologies and kill people for the “good of their eternal souls” etc. my beliefs are more secular humanist with some xtian leanings but that’s irrelevant as islamic ideology can & must be objectively examined as to how it affects its followers. how much easier it is for followers to adhere to an ideology that bases itself on the worst aspects of human nature, ie. killing for power, lust, greed than an ideology that tries to get humans to love each other ?
getting to the history of xnity vs. islam here are 2 excellent links from excellent blogger who has done an enormous amount of work for this subject, and yes sadly islam “wins” this horrible contest hands down
