#Je Suis Charlie

Here are some examples of how cartoonists are reacting to the killing of catoonists in Paris.

 

http://www.indexoncensorship.org/2015/01/cartoonists-responded-attack-charlie-hebdo/

 

The shooting is a good example of what happens when extremism is allowed to run.

Amazing to think these people actually think their god can not do anything itself but has to have them committ murder for 'it'.

 

But then the religious texts of many religions and history is full of murder committed in the name of some god and by the command of some god.

So then, they did kill because of their religion. It is not a religion of peace.

So does that mean when a so-called Christian commits murder, the Christian religion is one of murdering devils? What about the Crusades when Christians went on a murdering rampage in the name of Christ? Did that make all Christians suspect?

Re: #Je Suis Charlie

Hey Bart although many here will not admit it most religions have members who have committed murder in the name of their god.

 

The other thing that many will not admit is when they have to do these things be it murder or other discriminatory things in the name of their god is that what they are doing is showing their god is useless, unable to carry out any of those actions itself.

 

Any god that was worth believing in would be able to murder those 'it' found needed it 'itself' and would not have to get mere men to do it.

So when men and women do these things they are just showing how impotent their god really is.

Did some Christians murder a bunch of cartoonist today to avenge a prophet?

Gets his talking points from the white house.

 

snip-

REPORTER: The French government has decided to temporarily close their embassies and schools in several Muslim countries after a satirical weekly, Charlie Hebdo, that published cartoons mocking the Prophet Muhammad. Is the White House concerned that those cartoons might further fan the flames in the region?

CARNEY: Well, we are aware that a French magazine published cartoons featuring a figure resembling the Prophet Muhammad, and obviously, we have questions about the judgment of publishing something like this. We know that these images will be deeply offensive to many and have the potential to be inflammatory. But we’ve spoken repeatedly about the importance of upholding the freedom of expression that is enshrined in our Constitution.

In other words, we don’t question the right of something like this to be published; we just question the judgment behind the decision to publish it. And I think that that’s our view about the video that was produced in this country and has caused so much offense in the Muslim world.

Re: #Je Suis Charlie

I always thought it was the decision of the person if they wish to be insulted.

 

Anyone who wants to be insulted can find a reason to be insulted in almost anything.

 

Intelligent people seem to be able to ignore insulting things to them and continue to lead a good life.

 

Weaker people, especially those lost in the world of 'beliefs' do not seem to realize that by doing things in their gods name they are showing how powerless their 'god' is that 'it' can not do those things on 'it's' own.

 

Indeed a sign for many that their 'god' is imaginary only.
