Mohammad Sucks Big Sweaty Donkey Balls

Sorry. Had to be said.  After all, it’s Blasphemy Day International. (Wikipedia)

In fairness, I feel the same way about Christianity. About all religion, actually, but also about superstition, and even about the donkey-ball-sucking broadcasters who pour out all this recent ghost-hunter swill on TV.

If cigarettes damage your health, and now require warning labels, shouldn’t things that damage your ability to think have warning labels too? I’m right on board with the free-speech right to broadcast and preach this stuff, but a little warning to young people before each session might not be out of line.

Warning: The following program is full of made-up shit, but the actors and staff involved in it just really needed the money.

Warning: The following religious service has no basis in fact, but Father Flanagan made some bad career choices early in life, and now it’s all he knows how to do.

Warning: The imams overseeing the following stoning of a woman for fornication are professionals. Don’t try this at home.

      I whipped it up in Photoshop. You’re welcome to use it.

    Blasphemy ? I want some of that! I deny the holy spirit, Mohammed was no prophet but a fantast, Moses needs better homing sense (40 years in a desert? you kidding me?) and wicca is damn silly.

      I agree. An ex-boss of mine, who had a fascinating education, once told me that the desert back then was very small and it was basically impossible to get lost in. I would love to hear from someone who has a cite for the credibility of this “lost for 40 years” meme.

        The way I have gotten it explained by Cartoon History of the Universe: They weren’t lost, they just were building strength till they were able to invade Canaan. People seldom type things like “We realized we weren’t strong enough to expel the tribe living the place we were going, and returning really was no-go, so we had to live in a more marginal environment till our numbers had reached critical mass for invasion,” when writing their own history. It is more common with lots of stuff of how they are the chosen people and how the neighbouring… empires really are just some… unchosen people. Who have all the best land, the best food, the best… But they aren’t Chosen! So there!

          Thanks Steinar,

          I had read not read it as a metaphor, but had thought perhaps it was a purposeful punishment. Raised as fundamentalist, one gets taught that these things are literally true. And I hadn’t realised how small the desert was, until years later.

          And then I wondered how they had got away with the punishment for 40 years, when one would expect people to just walk out of the desert (<1 day trip).

          I always hated the genocide stories in the bible: worship the "wrong" god = get righteously wiped out. And the whole "chosen people" superiority complex… grrr…
