Only Korans? - Part 3, unfortunately
[04/16/2012] - I feel like I've learned a lot since I wrote this, and it now no longer 100% represents my views on the subject; they aren't enraged because we burned some books.
"Worse than useless" is the most concise way I can think of to describe that bigot Terry Jones.
That's all I have to say about him. In Afghanistan many people have now been murdered because of a Youtube video of a Koran being burned. I'm disgusted by the bigotry of the group that burned that Koran. I'm outraged that those people were murdered. There is nothing to justify what has happened, though there are certainly explanations. Understanding their outrage is not a reason to sanction their actions. Understanding the maliciousness of the original offense does not mean that any part of the retribution should be forgiven. When I made the original post I titled it "Only Korans?" to imply that no so-called Holy Book should be safe from burning in an act of defiance. Now though I'd like to repurpose that title for its other meaning. That book is merely a Koran. To Hell with the accommodationists and strict-multiculturalists. Their wretched hypocrisy, essentially born out of pity for murderers and tyrants, is nauseating. I have no respect for you or your opinions if you can look at the events that have just occurred in Afghanistan and say, "See? This is why we must forbid insulting Islam." Fuck it. I have nothing left to say. I'll quote Madison-area band Erebus instead: (From 'God Loves Us') The bones of infidels Of countless human souls How could the world forget The graveyard it’s built on This earth is drenched with blood In the name of God Surely the work of the Lord Has been Done Let us pray for the 3 million children a year, That are destroyed by the holiest butcher Let us pray for the billions of infidels That were created, So they can burn in hell Has he the will but not the power? Impotent Has he the power not the will? Sadistic Just fucking end it all I’m blessed, you’re blessed, we’re fucking blessed I’m saved, you’re saved, it’s fucking great Grab mom and dad and grandma too Cuz it’s true, God loves me and you! Why keep a prison When we’ve got one here on earth What can we expect at the gates? When you’ve turned your back on us? You wash your hands And sit in judgment Or are we just fuel For the Flames Let us pray to the god that has betrayed us all Born a sinner, you will die nothing more Pray to the tyrant, laughing on a throne of despair Demanding all from a world too poor to give We are controlled by guilt and fear Suffering Gambling on a roll of the dice Cowardice What are you waiting for? I’m blessed, you’re blessed, we’re fucking blessed I’m saved, you’re saved, it’s fucking great Grab mom and dad and grandma too Cuz it’s true, God loves me and you! How much worse can it get? I’m disgusted I don’t want your paradise Send me to hell
