A Tolerant Beheading

A man who founded Bridges TV the “first-ever full-time home for American Muslims,” to air “… the countless stories of Muslim tolerance, progress, diversity, service and excellence …” surrendered to police on Thursday after beheading his wife.

  1. You’re going to see a Law & Order: SVU episode like this, I guarantee it.

    I’m not sure if you’re saying that you don’t trust religion in general, or if you have an issue only with Islam here?

  2. This is an insane world, that’s for sure. I’m a Christian “Finding sanity in an Insane World”, so ex-Christian or not, we all need to find a place of peace. I think your site is growing to be a watchdog for hypocritical behavior from all world views including atheism.

  3. I confess that when I point out hypocritical behavior like this, I feel a little guilty. It’s not really a good argument against religion because there are kooks in every walk of life. However, I do believe that irrational behavior like this is encouraged when a person divorces his thinking mind from the real world. This happens to varying degrees to varying people. Most people would draw the line well before beheading their wife, however when a society encourages the blind adherence to an irrational concept, spousal beheadings become more common.

    So my goal is not merely to point out ridiculous behavior, but to also point this out: this is NOT hypocritical from some fundamentalist Islamic points of view.
