Satire the cult out

Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?

Submitted by John Bastile (Malaysia), Sep 12, 2007 at 23:24

Banning a cult is not very effective. China tried that with Falun Gong and there is widespread confusion as to whether the group is really a cult or peaceful people that have dissenting views with the government.

An effective way is to use satire. That was how the KKK was brought down. Their secret meetings and passwords were broadcast and turned into childrens' games. Constant satire will be effective in exposing the ugly truth about this evil cult. There are so many angles at poking fun at the false prophet.

For example:

1. Making fun of his request to marry his 6-year old child bride.

2. His constant use of "divine" messages to help him get what he wants. For example, marrying his adopted son's wife, having illicit sex with Mary the slave Eygptian Copt, getting out of forgetting his verses.

2. The real reason why they need 4 pious male eye- witnesses for a rape case.

The West should also defend vigourously anyone that poke fun at them instead of selling them out. I mean, someone can poke fun at Christ without needing police protection from death threats and violent street protests.

Until now, satires about the cult is almost non-existing. Please observe:

1. No hollywood movies about the cult.

2. Even South Park has announced that they dared not poke fun for fear for their lives.

If muslims fell slighted about the satires thrown at them, it is regretable. The truth hurts.
