Lest we forget : Comments

By Greg Byrne, published 7/5/2013

It is tragic that the NCC, so perceptive in analysing the ideology of Marxism and the Greens, is failing to do the same with Islam.

The 'Islamophobia' canard is just the latest and most hateful attempt by the Left to try and make it look as if their Utopian plans for happy-clappy global socialism have any foundation whatever in reality. Let's be nice to fundamentalist religious maniacs; then when, with the aid of your efforts, they take over, we might well be spared for another week or two. Or as Noel Coward might have put it:

Donít letís be beastly to the theists,
Donít letís be rude about their faith.
Though they believe in Providence,
Without a shred of evidence
We know their hearts are in the rightish plaith.

Donít be insulting towards Islam,
Donít treat the Moslem with disdain.
Insist that heís terrific,
And astonishingly pacific,
Or else heíll bomb your house, or car, or plane.

No, we wonít be beastly to the theists
As long as it might result in personal pain.

Donít letís be callous to the Christians,
Donít snicker at the stories that they tell,
Though their customary behaviour
Is nothing like that of their Saviour,
And theyíre perfectly sure itís you whoís going to Hell.

Donít be contemptuous of Buddhists,
Donít criticise the Eightfold Path.
Though the sound of one hand clapping
Is a rather feeble flapping,
Whatever you do, donít listen to it and laugh.

Thatís why we wonít be beastly to the theists,
Because there are far too many of them by half.

Donít letís be horrible to the Hindu,
For the Hindu is a person just like you.
Unless, let it be stated,
Heís been reincarnated
And come back as an animal in the zoo.

Donít scoff at Seventh-Day Adventists,
Donít sneer at Scientology.
If a Mormon can make President,
Itís prudent to be hesitant
In pointing out itís plainly idiocy.

So three cheers for Xenu and Moroni!
Whatever the hell it is theyíre síposed to be.

No, we wonít be beastly to the theists,
From us the theists nothing have to fear.
Weíre a ragtag little band,
Our ideas are second-hand,
And we lead the atheist movement from the rear.

So we wonít be beastly to the theists,
ĎCos theyíre so pathetically grateful that weíre here!

Jon J's second post was great. However, Bob Santamaria's NCC has a questionable devotion to democracy. Bob S. favoured Franco's clerical fascism. Totalitarianism whether in the form of Marxism, Fascism or religion stinks.

Very good Jon J.

This is a good article.

Make no mistake the West is at war with islam albeit not in a conventional sense.

The acts of terrorism are the cutting edge of this war; it is also progressing more insidiously through population build-up and the increasingly shrill demands for Sharia law.

The NCC is not the only religious organisation unwilling to be critical of islam; in England for example the Anglican church continually sponsors inter-faith 'dialogue' and other concilatory approaches and concessions to islam.

In this respect the religions are on song with the left who have supported islam to the point of death as Nick Cohen so eoloquently and ironically described in his book, "What's Left" where the left in Iran were the first to lose their heads when the mullahs came into power.

How to explain such cognitive dissonance?

For a start the left are cowards and flat track bullies; it is so easy to protest against sources of authority in the West, especially when the left controls much of that authority, but the muslims have a habit of blowing things up.

Philosophically the nuances of left support for islam can be distilled to a case of the enemy of my enemy must be my friend.

As a result of left control of the msm there has been no effective analysis of the values and methods of islam so to most of the punters the real nature of islam is camouflaged behind the usual shibboleths as 'moderate' muslims and a few bad eggs etc.

It is ironic that the Catholic church is currently being held to account for the crimes done under its auspices but there is no such attempt to apply the same standards to islam.

terrorism and facism is not foreign to the secular humanist and those who adopt their dogmas. Remember it is the righteousness of Jesus Christ that is an offense because it exposes their corruption and failed dogma. All is tolerable except those 'war mongering ', 'spiteful' 'hateful ' Christians who normnally give more, volunteer more and promote family in the normal sense.

Dear runner,

I really don't think you know what secular humanism is.

from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secular_humanism

The philosophy or life stance secular humanism (alternatively known by some adherents as Humanism, specifically with a capital H to distinguish it from other forms of humanism) embraces human reason, ethics, social justice and philosophical naturalism, while specifically rejecting religious dogma, supernaturalism, pseudoscience or superstition as the basis of morality and decision making.

Go to the website to read more.

Secular humanism rejects terrorism, fascism and superstition including your superstition.
