Sticks and Stones

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words could never hurt me. Have Muslim people never heard these words. Ironically they use sticks and stones to storm the US embassy in Yemen, Libya and Egypt.
Libya and Egypt, the Arab spring. People have opposed tyranny, toppled political regimes. Repression apparatus made of political ideologies corrupted to the core, replaced by something even more sinister. A repression apparatus made of religious ideologies, just as corrupted as the previous one. So there you have it. The western world should have sent military personal in Libya and Egypt and helped Mubarak and Gaddafi keep the animals in their cages. That aside. Whatever you here on the news as in condemnation of the violent acts of moderate Muslims, it is always prefaced by a condemnation of the movie. So no thank you, your condemnations are useless. The freedom to express an opinion is at the core of an open and healthy society, no matter how unpopular it is or how offensive it could be to someone. If they want to challenge the views and opinions depicted in the motion picture then they should have replied in kind by a wide spread campaign of critique. If they must be violent then we must reply in kind and bomb them back to the stone-age. Which shouldn't be so hard since the already live in the bronze-age thanks to the regressive views of their religion.

If on the other hand there really are people in the Arab World who would like to move forward, then they are the ones who should fix these issues internally by being on the street to oppose this ultimate stupidity. The values of the enlightenment and the preaching of secularism is what could get this part of the world back on track. At no point do I want to sound offensive to Muslims. I actually want to sound offensive to Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus and everybody else who preaches absurdity to the unwashed masses. If you are intelligent and rational then you are most likely and Atheist. If you aren't then at least recognize that the greatness of your God and value of your Religion is best expressed by the humility of your ideology and the humanness of your actions.
