A Non Prophet Organization
Blasphemy is a victimless crime. Think about it. When you curse an invisible, unprovable entity you're not actually criticizing anything. Why then, do we observe mass carnage whenever somebody dares to insult the phantom prophet adored by the followers of Islam? We see beheadings, Embassy's burned down, protest rally's in major cities, and have to endure the constant bleating of those whom say we are wrong to speak out against the religion of peace. Take the Danish cartoon scandal, when a scandinavian publication, in jest, published pictures of the prophet with a bomb in his turban. Just harmless mockery, you'd think, only in Islam it is forbidden to draw images of this nasty 7th century thug. Now I don't know about you, but given that Mohammed spread Islam by the sword, combined with the fact that he took a 9year old as his wife, I'd say it is not unreasonable to state that he was both a warmonger and pedophile. Yet this creature is apparently above critique, and even non believers must refrain from speaking Ill of this barbarous fiend. In response to this attack on free speech, one year ago we saw the first ever international draw Mohammed day, a brilliant initiative whereby one could draw an image of the Prophet and upload it to a website. What a unique way of protesting. Peaceful, creative, using the technology of today to ridicule the feeble minded ideas of the past. The message it spreads is clear; our right to free speech has been hard won, and is more sacred than the primitive nonsense you spout. We will not yield to your threats, your intimidation, or your misplaced desire to drag us back to a tribal 7th century ideology. We are better than that. And frankly if you suppose for a moment that your brainless warbling's have the power to thwart 13 centuries of progress you are at a misapprehension. International draw Mohammed day 2 is looming, so let's make our message clear. The Internet is where your religion comes to die, and it will wilt flaccidly when confronted by the power of reason and the values of the enlightenment. Be gone with your tribal nonsense, and turn the lights off on your way out.
