This is exactly the stuff

That makes people skeptical of the whole “religion of peace” of line.

Numerous media reports say Gibbons was arrested after allowing her class of 7-year-olds to name a teddy bear “Mohammed.”

That could be seen as an insult to the Prophet Mohammed, the reports said.

If you read the story, you’ll see that she wasn’t arrested immediately, and in fact it was the children that chose the name Mohammed for the bear, and not the teacher. And yet, she was arrested for violating Sharia law – three months after the fact.

Now, I really have no problem with Islam, or Muslims. The deity to which you choose to pray doesn’t matter to me at all; but what matters to me is when you decide to impose your lifestyle on me or others because you believe that your religion is better/greater than mine.

It is unfortunate that a great percentage of Islam has been hijacked by fundamentalists and extremists. It seems to me that the Religion of Peace is desperately in need of a Great Reformation. Just as the Christian church needed men like Martin Luther to pull it from the darkness, Islam needs a great prophet to step up.

  1. “The children chose the name because it is very common here,” the spokesman told PA.”

    Its the most common name in the world IIRC. This is bullshit unless the assholes in the Sudan start arresting all the parrents there who name thier nose-picking, paste-eating brats after the Prophet.

    I fail to see the difference. Hell Teddy Bears are well manered, and I’ve never heard of one that wets the bed!

  2. Martin Luther wasn’t a prophet, he was a reformer. Does Islam need reforming, or is it simply wahabism that needs to be stomped? After all Turkey and Egypt are fairly secular. This seems to be more about the government of Sudan than the religion of Islam. This illustrates the importance of separating church and state.
