Jesus and Mo on Ridicule - Comments

I love the metaphor "fundamental beliefs", as a more palatable description of "deeply ingrained bigotry"! It sounds so much more like semantic" 'fisticated feeology"!

I have spent hours, and thousands of words, saying just this in the last 10 days.

Yet Jesus and Mo can put both sides of the argument in one simple cartoon.

Maybe I'm wasting my time?

Peace.

Whoever does this cartoon is a very talented thinker. Every time he manages to accomplish perfect summary.

It's a valid empirical fact that it's standard Mohammedanspeak to play the rascist card on any event or complaint.

uh.. maybe not the right place to ask, but Mohammed was actually Jewish right, I mean, originally, when growing up etc. like he wasn't an atheist and he wasn't a Christian; he was in fact Jewish right?

The thing about multiculturalism that a lot of immigrants seem to miss is that, while they expect the locals to respect their beliefs/traditions, they also have to respect the local beliefs/traditions. I'm not saying that anyones beliefs/traditions are always worthy of respect, but it's a two-way street. That's the bit (in particular Middle-Eastern) immigrants often forget.

Every new twist and turn in the present controversy over free speech, or rather the lack of it, has a perfect riposte in Jesus and Mo. Thank you, sometimes a picture is really worth a thousand words.

Waiting for a train this evening I took out my phone came here and as I scrolled across to the final fram I just burst into laughter. The author is indeed brilliant to always think of a few words and a simple image to sum up the argument

Mohammed was raised in a non Jewish tribe, the fact his tribe was polytheist. At that time already Meca was an important pilgrim's center as many gods were represented in the ancient Kabba.

However there were several Jewish tribes on the Arab Peninsula. So he was aware of the monotheistic believes as well.
