Cenk Uygur / Halloweenies
Time for another double heap of BLAM !
The name Cenk Uygur recently surged in popularity amongst atheists, for his article If You're a Christian, Muslim or Jew - You are Wrong. And I quote :
Jesus was a lunatic. God is not coming to your rescue. He hasn't come to anyone's rescue in thousands of years, including Jesus. Mohammed was a power hungry, scam artist and ruthless conqueror. Moses and Abraham were figments of the imagination of some long dead rabbi. He would probably laugh his ass off at all of you who still believe the fairytales he made up thousands of years ago. He probably wouldn't even believe it if you told him.
How long are we going to dance around the 800-pound gorilla in the room? The world is run by madmen. It's not just Bush and bin Laden. It is the leader of all of the countries in the Middle East, almost all of the Americas and most of the rest of the world.
As for the Halloweenies, we're talking of course about the Christians, at least in the parody article "Holiday Gives Christians Much-Needed Smugness Boost".
For millions of American young people, Halloween is just another holiday, an excuse to load up on tooth-rotting morsels and scare themselves with all sorts of ghosts and goblins nonsense. For a select few, however, the event is about something far more important: the persistent notion that the conservative Christian beliefs imposed on them by their parents make them better than everyone else.
Have fun annoying the Halloweenies this evening. And don't miss my article against the "consilience" of science and religion, just below. Happy Halloween !
