Stoner Park

I really don't want to get into this into too much detail because it's something the media has been digging through and through. I've been seeing this quite often, where the media is desperately finding something to report on or say even when the last dregs of information has been pulled out of the tiniest cracks. Yet, they still milk it for all its worth until a point where you can see they are milking it and it becomes pathetic and negatively reflects on this media source, and news media in general.

Anyways, there's a big commotion going on about the latest episodes of Comedy Central's South Park, "200" and "201." In "200," they brought in some old and familiar faces to celebrate their 200th episode - an amazing achievement. Apart from the Tom Cruises, "H"eniffer Lopez's, Mr Hats, Jesus', there he was, Muhammad (again).

When he was supposed to be shown, there was a big black block showing "CENSORED", which is not so much self-censoring but comedy. But after some debate about how to give Muhammad to Tom Cruise and his friends, the town of South Park decided to dress Muhammad up in a bear costume.

Do you know what? I think that's awesome! I really rolled around laughing because they have dissected the current social and political environment and ripped it apart in comedy. It really showed how stupid we are these days.

Now we have some Islamic radicals threatening, wait... "warning" Matt Stone and Trey Parker about their little bit of comedy. The reports say they want to see the creators of South Park end up like the Dutch journalist who was shot and stabbed to death for making a documentary on Islamic women.

"This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them" - Abu Talhah Al-Amrikee

Whatever "Abu"... It's people like you that cements this fear and hatred in most people in the civilised world to try and limit you and your actions. It's people like you who take the sacred scriptures to such an extent that you are willing to kill on behalf of your deity/holy person.

Do you even know how religions came about? If you are so devout in your religion, shouldn't you at least learn about where all this came from? Well, it came from MAN. Christianity, Judaism AND Islam all came from the same part of the world, at about the same time in human history. All three religions are linked, yet these three religion's differences have been the cause for war and human suffering for centuries.

No deity, none, have ever said: "go out, kill thine fellows, show your true believe in me!"

So all of you people who are too serious about religion should take a break and take that stick out of the darkest part of you, and realise the truth. All holy scriptures are trying to do is to make you a better man/woman. No one wants you to go kill. Anyways, the Koran applies to those who believe in the Islamic faith. Most of us in the civilised world do not.

Darn... I got dragged into it. Now I'll be bombed! Yay!
