I WUZ GUNNA
post on blasphemy and all who sail in her. Then I thought I’d paraphrase a wise comment from the Bible (with a wee commentary of mine own). Like this—
RENDER UNTO CAESAR
IS CAESAR’S …
—and there we have it; from the Good Book itself: unadulterated common sense masquerading as wisdom.
WHAT IT MEANS IS
don’t argue with the bastard holding the gun.
rightly or wrongly are made by the powerful to entrench their interests and consolidate their power. Sometimes they attempt to justify their injustices with the ages-old mantra “It’s for your own good, dammit!” … other times they are more open and say “Do as I command or you get (a) whipped (b) flogged (c) tortured, and/or (d) terminated.”
I have been referenced to the possibly (soon to be) late great Imran Khan as an example; but whilst not caring a BRA what happens to bloody Islamic/s I can’t spare the time from thinking about that wee Islamic lassie Malala something-or-other who became a testimony to Islamic mercy, love, tolerance, kindness, compassion, and marksmanship.
That’s her, over there on the right. (Click the pic for link.)
In the meantime: if YOUR nation has ‘blasphemy’ laws … why?
Why indeed. I’d say it’s because YOU tolerate such. We could call it apathy. The apathy of the apathetic is what lets the religious and other maniacs control the masses. Not good.
isn’t ol’ Argus apathetic too?
Yup! Ol’ Argus is wise enough to render unto Caesar that which Caesar demands, and there’s the end of it.
THE PROOF OF
a theory is the accuracy of the predictions made, so here’s my prediction—
Within three generations Europe will be Islamic
—meantime, your tolerance of your own nation’s blasphemy laws lays a table for maniacs. Your call.
