http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,312895,00.html

A British primary school teacher arrested in Sudan faces up to 40 lashes for blasphemy after letting her class of 7-year-olds name a teddy bear Muhammad.

This sucks!

Several years ago I used to respect all religions equally; now I think they all suck.

"Not mine!" you say. Oh yeah, your magical deity is OK.

Religion accepts authority as truth, SCIENCE accepts truth as the only authority.

It's not the religion that fucks everything up, it's ignorant people (and ignorant comments as in the case of this thread) that fuck everything up.


The religion is pure; the "radicals" misinterpret/mis-implement it. They are ignorant as are the people that take their actions as a representation of the religion.

The religion itself does not preach any of those backward practices. It is the individual extremists that take it to another level, but brand themselves as Muslims, thereby tarnishing the name of a beautiful religion (only in the eyes of the ignorant though).

I say only in the eyes of the ignorant, because the educated minority (who knows what the religion is really about) will know the difference. The ignorant rely on second hand accounts to deduce a religion's worth in an instant as opposed to the educated who devote a great deal into understanding it before judging it.

Unless you've studied every single religion on this planet in detail, that is nothing more than an attempt at a joke.

What exactly is "the religion itself?" Where does it exist? In sterile viles guarded by clerics and ministers?

she deserves the 40 lashes for disrespecting 1.3 billion people around the world.

it's always the christians that keep harassing and disrespecting. she should be ashamed. She's giving christians a bad reputation they probably do not deserve.

i wouldnt even bother to defend that way. it's the christian radicals that go to those countries and keep disrespecting and insulting. the 40 lashes is only a reaction.

the entire world now knows the respect we have for our prophet after the european drawings last year, so they should stop pretending they're fucking ignorant and they dont know, and they should start respecting.

and if not, then they should take the 40 lashes and STFU already

what you said simply does not exist in Islam. there's not a thing that says convert them or kill them. There's a thing such as make them abide by islamic rulings, with the freedom of religion preserved, or fight them.

It seems as if every religion out there is fair game for ridicule and "blasphemy" by Islam's standards, but they take it.

For centuries in Europe and America, Christianity has been mocked and thrown in the gutter.

Yet, somebody makes any remark or comment about Islam or their prophet, and everyone is up in arms and wants to kill somebody. I do not see how Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance if they cannot tolerate someone else's views, even if they contradict your own.

Leo Roskin said, "It is the weak who are cruel; gentleness can only be expected from the strong."

If Mulsim's really waved a banner of peace and tolerance, then they would turn the other cheek to those who offend them.

Really? Maybe during Caesar times ... Otherwise, christian priests and soldiers were throwing everyone else in the gutter.

Christianity is probably the largest mob organization of Earth.

And Islam is the flip side if the coin, but with more current bursts of violence.

To summarize, two biggest religious mobs are trying to split the spheres of influence by both gently whispering crap into the ears of ignorant people and flexing the military muscle if the whispering doesn't help.

What a bunch of bullshit!!!

A decent human being, who decided to risk her ass to go down to a 3rd world country and give a little bit of enlightment to those poor ignorant Sudaneze kids, had to spend 14 days in jail for failure to adhere to a stupiud-ass formality. What did that show to the kids she was teaching? That it's better to be an extremist zombie than an open-minded human.
