Now here’s a view of his religious beliefs. Let’s just say I don’t take him too seriously as a clear thinker.


Happy International Blasphemy Day!

Set to recognize the freedom of speech against any incursions from the faithful, International Blasphemy begin after the Danish cartoon controversy along with attempts to pass laws against blasphemy in the UN.

Here’s a relevant Sam Harris article from 2008.

There is an uncanny irony here that many have noticed. The position of the Muslim community in the face of all provocations seems to be: Islam is a religion of peace, and if you say that it isn’t, we will kill you. Of course, the truth is often more nuanced, but this is about as nuanced as it ever gets: Islam is a religion of peace, and if you say that it isn’t, we peaceful Muslims cannot be held responsible for what our less peaceful brothers and sisters do. When they burn your embassies or kidnap and slaughter your journalists, know that we will hold you primarily responsible and will spend the bulk of our energies criticizing you for “racism” and “Islamophobia.”

Update: I couldn’t resist posting this after I posted the other South Park clip in the above post.
