The old backpedal in the face of religious fury

 

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/religion/6083338/Sebastian-Faulks-The-book-I-really-cant-put-down.html

So this geezer Sebastian Faulks writes a scathing article (that The Telegraph has taken down) on moslems then does the old 'twitchy rectum two-step'.

 

While we Judaeo-Christians can take a lot of verbal rough-and-tumble about our human-written scriptures, I know that to Muslims the Koran is different; it is by definition beyond criticism. And if anything I said or was quoted as saying (not always the same thing) offended any Muslim sensibility, I do apologise – and without reservation.

 

Some of the most vile weasel-words you'll ever read. This utter shit-bag should have just said "Don't kill me!" and have done with it. What a gutless wanker!

 

Reading the comments section of the article gives me some hope though.

Hmmm. I'm really tempted to
1: create a fortress in the US (where killing trespassers in self defense is never questioned)
2: start the biggest anti-koran publishing group to ever exist, complete with rude facsimiles of mohammad fucking a goat.
3: put a big headline on every printing that says Bring It!
4: corpses
5: PROFIT!

Well, I just like to

Well, I just like to different, and actually plan every step instead of just sitting back and waiting for teh lulz. Sticking out tongue

Step 2 contains nudity, though I think it would be awesome to also have a porn division that concentrates on getting moslems drunk, naked, and on film. More profit! Laughing out loud

I wish I could say the same. Certainly the few people who said flatly, "I wish you had just stuck to your guns" or "You're a coward" were correct. The one generous commenter alluding to the man's children may have been right. If I had to be called a coward by the internet if it would save even a cousin, I'd probably do it. But that's assuming any fear is well-founded.

Let's face it: Hitchens and Harris are still alive and kicking, so what are the chances that this guy is really going to incur a fatwa? Those crying "coward" may have something.

In this step, it appears as though you've stepped clean over the most entertaining part.

I think first, he should take the goat out for dinner. A dinner of wine and, oh, I don't know ... let's say ... pork. Oh, and garbage for the goat. Then the goat should demurely refuse all advances until the moment of back-alley passion overtakes the lovers, entwined in yet more garbage, while the homeless urinate and vomit around them.

Then, I'm thinking a big marriage scene, with the goat dressed up in the full train and everything.

See how truly gruesome and offensive this could get? You flew right past it, and there was such potential.

Death to Muhomed

 

It's naughty of me I know but I have special corner in my black heart where I keep my loathing of islam.

I've had a few arguments with muslims and there's nothing like being told you are not allowed to argue, not

allowed to question and not allowed a point of view. This is their default position and these twerps suck it up.

It's good that soon the oil will run out and sad there are some of them here, in the infidel west, annoying me.
