“The greatest problem in the world today is intolerance. Everyone is so intolerant of each other.” -Princess Diana
Apparently, some kid at the University of Florida “stole” a communion cracker and the Catholics went apeshit. Not that the apeshit part should be a surprise, this is the same organization that sponsored the Inquisition. University of Minnesota professor and atheist PZ Myers blogged about the incident. He asked his readers to score him some communion crackers so he could show them some,
“profound disrespect and heinous cracker abuse, all photographed and presented here on the web. I shall do so joyfully and with laughter in my heart.”
I thought it was funny. But the boy-fucking Catholics did not. And of course are clamoring for his resignation, head, firing, and/or untimely death.
The part I find especially funny are all the hate mail (now would Jesus do that…?) that PZ has received. Not that it’s cool people are actually threatening death over this bullshit, but it is amusing. Clearly these people need something else to do. However, they keep complaining, over and over that if this was a Muslim thing or a Jewish thing, people/the media/the ACLU would be complaining this was a hate crime.
They keep comparing the Koran or the Torah to the cracker. It’s not the same thing. If he had offered to commit heinous Bible abuse, then that analogy would work. The rest is funny, but really what I am pissed at is that these people fail at analogies. At understanding other religions. Since these idiots know nothing about anything but their own religion, they are unable to make a reasonable comparison.
