World badness

On Saturday night, 19/08, when I brought up at dinner the subject of the missing Australian boy in Barcelona, our Ex Policeman/Politician friend said he is dead, and this person is normally right about such things and so it has come to pass.


You fucking Moslem religion fanatics, why oh why would you want to kill an innocent seven year old boy, never mind anyone else.


One tries to be tolerant of differences in the world but to make the most massive understatement, I am not really so enthralled by the Moslem religion. What had this lad done to you? And you failed. People are still strolling Las Ramblas and all you have done is added to the hate towards your religion, well at least the extremes of it, but it does fall generally to Moslems.

  1. I think all religions can be deleted. How many people have died from the other religious conflicts? Northern Ireland is the first one that jumps to mind but there have been so, SO many.

    Right now I am so fed up with religion overall, I would happily build a time machine and go back in time to delete ALL these religions.

    I certainly am not a fan of any of them, nor do I think it wise to base ones life on any book written so many years ago when things were so different. Just my opinion, for the very little it is worth. :/

  2. I have just been listening to a radio programme about how we all have to expect acts of terrorism in our major cities. The debate went on for two hours, and not once did they mention that awful word 'Muslim'. How on earth can we expect to conquer the problem if we're not even capable of pronouncing its name.

    Poor boy; I suppose we all feared as much. RIP.

    1. Cro, thankfully our ABC equivalent does not go that far. It is foolish to not name groups behind who is responsible, and taking that to the race of those who commit crimes, how can we know if people from one area of the world have problems adjusting to western society?

  3. Extremist anything scares me. And extremists who claim religion (any religion) as their justification scare me most.

    1. EC, I agree. I believe all religions preach love and peace, yet some seem to ignore this.

  4. Cro, You must have been listening to the BBC. That's the sort of thing that they would leave out as they pander to Islam and hate to see them put in a bad light. They even neglected to mention the Turkish incident until it was of course old news.

    As John Stewart once said... 'Religion, It's given people hope in a world torn apart by Religion.'

  6. There is no logic to these actions and those idiots in Charlottesville Virginia (who are not Muslims) also fail the logics test.

    Reasoning doesn't work with these folk.

    1. Victor, perhaps in Charlottesville they think Trump has given them some kind of moral authority to behave so badly.

  7. It's not about the religion, it's about the divisions within this religion and the power struggle. Sunnni and Shiite, go back to the 16th century when Protestant and Catholic went the same way, no fast vans but plenty of burnings, hangings and torture.
    I watched the programme on the religion of scientology last night, another load of nutjobs landing in another cult of worship me.

    1. Jah Teh, with the friction between the two groups has even been brought here, as we heard with the arson attack on a Shiite centre.

      Quite a few high profile actors are rather keen on the so called nutjob cult. Fools.

    Hi

    Well I don't know. I read that Yassmin Abdel-Magied said that she keeps getting asked about these terrorist atrocities as if she should do something about them, but she doesn't go around asking eg Catholics to explain Catholic atrocities. I am reluctant to give credibility to anything she says, however she might have a point.

    What SHOULD your average mild mannered Australian Muslim do and say about what happened in Spain?

    As an atheist but Catholic in Emergencies person, I think it is unreasonable to expect me to have ownership of the Spanish Inquisition or the Crusades or IRA murders.

    But terrorist acts carried out in the name of Islam are happening NOW. And part of the reasons for the terrorism might be because of our USA-led interference in the Middle East.

    I wonder what I should and could do if terrorist acts were now being done by people who said they were Christians. Suggestions welcome.

    I am so sorry for that poor little boy and his family. I'm still going to post this, but in the end how can ANYONE think killing innocent people is OK.

    1. Marie, your question about what normal Aussie Muslims should say is extremely important. Clearly they have to disassociate themselves from the attacks, which are not history but happening now. But nor should they have to apologise for their religion. Oh, you kind of said that. The Irish matter was as much about rights and land than religion.

      Your concluding sentence is a motherhood statement, but ever so true. Oh yes, I did chuckle at Catholic in Emergencies.

  9. I was hoping to hear the boy had been found when I watch the news later today :(
    I used to say Religion has a lot to answer for and probably that's still true, but the real problem is those extremists hell bent on terrorising and killing, and of course governments who tread too lightly when dealing with them.

    1. River, many have accused the predominantly Moslem country of Indonesia to our north as being soft on terrorism, and there is perhaps some justification. Religion does seem rather unhelpful to world peace.

  10. Catholic in Emergencies, Anons' statement, cracks me up! Good for a good laugh this morning, Eclipse morning here. I'm not into religions, as I think they cloud thinking, create a mind shut down follow the leader sort of mentality and we don't more of that mindless follower thing in the world.

    1. Strayer, it was a good line, Catholic in Emergencies. The eclipse apocalypse has now arrived for you.

  11. It's a tough call Andrew. The Moslem religion seems abhorrent to me anyway but when used by fanatics as the basis for the dreadful things they do I don't think we can blame them all. I'm with all above, religion sucks!

    1. Grace, that really goes for all religions but at the moment it seems Moslems are the top of pile with religious justification of the evil they do.
