The following comes from the Sunni Forum website and was posted by somebody named Maripat. Whoever this guy is, his stellar powers of reason deserves exposure beyond the limited audience of the Sunni Forum. Rationality like his should not be confined to preaching to the choir (chanters?). His impeccable logic should be exposed to us freethinkers so that we might all benefit from his expositional prowess.
Without further ado, I am pleased to present to you the one and only Maripat and his impressive evisceration of Pat Condell’s video, “I’m Offended by Islam“: wryly titled, “I’m Offended by Pat Condell”.
I’m offended by Pat Condell
He had posted a short video entitled I’m offended by Islam.
Here is the transcript of the video.
And here is our response.
The offensive thing here is the portrayal of Muslims community as an irrelevant distraction.
Get connected with reality. Your own superior white race is turning to Islam so get used to both Islam and Muslims. Whether you like it or not.
And Muslims are not inconsequential too. The very fact that so many of your videos talk about Muslims is an indication that you can not ignore them for long. In fact you are obsessed with Islam and Muslims in a negative way. And sort of helpless too. What about converting to Islam? On our behalf we do not care in the least how God will treat you in the hereafter. You are offending us by denying God and and you are offending us by your nasty verbiage against us. There is no humour in your prose, only hatred. That your fellow countrymen can not perceive that is solely due to centuries old Islamophobia that has conditioned them to the portrait of Islam as something negative.
Islam is not a trade, it is a religion. An atheist can not judge any religion and Islam is beyond his capacity. And this lack of capacity does not give you or any other atheist a license to offend Muslims by spreading biased presentation of Islam as a religion. Last century was the most violent of human history and west was responsible for it, in atheistic form or religious form or liberal form. Not Islam. Islam is indeed religion of peace while western thought in recent times gave us world wars, holocaust, civil wars and numerous wars. West killed so many people in a century as were not killed unnaturally in the history of human race. And you have the cheek to make fun of Islam. That is quite offensive.
The Noble Qur’an explicitly says that man and woman are equal.
Homosexuality is not allowed in Islam. Nor is apostasy.
Jews are not denied their rights in Islam. Your portrayal of Islam is quite offensive.
It is mind-blowing that you think that we shall gulp your nonsense down.
It is soul-withering that you have been constantly spewing venom against Islam and Muslims for years.
It unforgivable that you are doing that openly.
Lord Most High willing we shall extract our compensation. Slowly and surely.
Is it not a deception to smudge the image of Islam with unfounded epithets in the name of humour?
Have the British gone that dumb really? Permission is hereby withdrawn from you to define cruelty, intolerance and oppression from (your) one side. You are offended that your colonial onslaught did not decimate Islam and Muslims are looking you in the eyes now. Read your own history to know about cruelty, intolerance and oppression.
Islam is not pushy. Islamic tenet is that there is no compulsion in religion. That is the beginning. After that Islamic justice is spotless, if not seen with tainted western spectacles.
But if you try to push Islam or Muslims then it indeed is confrontational. It is deeply offensive to expect Muslims to take the pushes and shoves.
And there is no hair-trigger sensitivity either amongst Muslims. In your enmity with Islam you have designed your western ideology as completely anti-Islamic, Islamophobic. And that is very offensive.
And we do not have any need for being manipulative, trust in God is our reliance and it is offensively manipulative to accuse us of under hand tactics.
And that you are offended by Islam is merely a side effect of your centuries old Islamophobia failing right in front of your eyes.
Well, I’m offended by a religion that regards the female half of humanity as innately inferior and deficient. And I’m offended that we all pretend that isn’t the case when we all know it bloody well is and it will remain the case until we do something about it, because nobody else is going to.
Islam explicitly tells that man and woman are equal and you do not.
There is empirical evidence of inferior status of woman in west and most obvious one is the dwindling fertility rate in that geographical region.
A for sure you would do all you can to harm Islam and Muslims but unfortunately for you this time they are not sleeping.
We are giving her the protection that you can not.
Child abuse stories from your society are unbearable to even listen to.
Use some of your so called intellectual freedom to free yourself from stereotyping of Muslims, your own reality is nauseatingly horrific.
It is deeply offensive to listen to a pot calling kettle black.
The status we give to woman is not possible even in a dream for you.
We have been practicing Shariah for 1400 hundred years and still flowing.
You on the other hand are a threatened race because you put woman into an impossible situation where she has to manage both house and the outside.
Female genital mutilation is not part of Islam as far as my cultural knowledge is concerned. It is offensive to get slapped with accusation of some tribal practice from some where.
And if you are offended by your feminists then do not offend us by your whining.
It is offensive to listen to complains about Christians not respecting their Bible as Muslims respect their Qur’an.
It is offensive to denigrate teaching of Islam in schools and making xenophobic remarks about Muslims.
Islamic slaughtering is not more cruel than atheistic one.
And it is offensive to hear your frustrations against your own government.
May be we should stop supplying you halal meat.
It is offensive that you want to offend us by such things.
Is that too difficult to understand?
Is dumbing down of the United Kingdom complete?
It is shockingly offensive to hear such insensitive words.
Your denial of a cruel reality is personally as well as publicly offensive.
Tolerance of a white man for racial diversity is only skin deep. You scratch the surface and he starts oozing venom. It is profoundly offensive.
The racism boiling under your surface is itching to burst out. You are pathetic and you are offensive.
Busted neo-colonialism has frustrated you and the result is not very pleasing to see. It is offensive.
There is no humour here or anywhere else. It is pure hatred. Islamophobia.
It is offensive.
The offensive thing hear is unbridled xenophobia.
It offends our sensibilities that even after years of our screaming you have not realized that every freedom comes with corresponding responsibility.
It is offensive to see that you are not trying to come out of your ignorance about freedom versus responsibility.
If some one is threatening some one else then it is very offensive to put the blame on their religion.
Every single one of your videos that talk about Islam or Muslims is offensive. Very offensive.
What can I say folks? This Maripat guy is just too much! We’re going to have to figure out some way to combat his gifted way with words.
Is it even possible? Should we just give up? Maybe Islam really is the one true religion. I’m thinking of converting. Maybe you should too.
