This is a truly remarkable story, and really puts into context the absolute fire-breathing idiots, the misinformed imbeciles that we have to put up with. Quote from the BBC:
The most senior judge in Saudi Arabia has said it is permissible to kill the owners of satellite TV channels which broadcast immoral programmes.
Yes, you read that right. The MOST SENIOR JUDGE in Saudi Arabia has given permission, endorsement if you will, for the killing of broadcasters for broadcasting what he deems to be immoral programmes. Let’s break this down.
Firstly, people will now attempt to kill the station owners, and no doubt their employees, because of this statement made by an absolute bigoted idiot. People may very well die. Secondly, what on earth is immoral? Who judges? Him? The prospective murderers? Their holy book? Let’s be honest, every holy book is unspecific when it comes to morality, there are grey areas. Language is ambiguous. So even of you do believe in a holy book, can you really truly understand it’s intentions? Quite frankly, if I was a Muslim and I saw this statement being made, I’d really start to reconsider the company I keep. Do I really want to be part of a movement where one of it’s more senior and influential members believes that murder is a less serious crime than broadcasting provocative television shows? Does that make sense to ANYONE?
This is what we’re up against. Biggotry, fear and idiocy.
