Comment of the Day: You're Too Sensitive About Religion

Categories: Whatever

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We recently brought you up to date on guru Prakashanand Saraswati, charged with molesting young girls. In the course of doing so, we talked about Krishnu in a way that offended some people, one of whom advised us to call a Hindu temple for more information.

That didn't sit well with another reader.

Utterly ridiculous, this sensitivity toward religion. Pick up a phone and call a temple to get the low down about Lord Krishnu. Yeah right, and you could call Jimmy Swaggert to learn that Job was swallowed by a whale; or call a priest to learn that a virgin bore a god, and also the son of god himself, who was crucified, died, then came back to life and rose, whole body up into the sky.

Religion deserves ridicule from any right thinking person; not respect and sensitivity.

Right on! Religion was rendered obsolete long ago. But others love that stuff from the Iron Age, and probably should feel a little insecure about it.

More like the Bronze age.

Following a star until it hovers over a manger?

Packing seven each of all the animals in the world into one boat?

Starting out with a garden featuring a blind, jealous giant?

Killing your kids because the voice in the sky says so?

It isn't even a bad joke.

You forgot the one about the conquering warlord named Mohammed flying off into heaven on horseback. No one seems to ridicule the muslims. Wouldn't be PC to disrespect their religion even as fanatics murder thousands annually in the name of the Religion of Peace (TM).

Got daddy issues? Got to get back at your parents for refusing to take you to the AC/DC concert when you were in school?

Antitheist supremacists suck as much as OTHER the religious absolutists you spit upon.

Of course Islam figures in there. Have you not paid attention. All religions.
