#NotAllMuslims declare that all atheists are terrorists

Font Size:

Just the Muslims ruling Saudi Arabia.

Adam Withnall, The Independent (UK):

Saudi Arabia has introduced a series of new laws which define atheists as terrorists, according to a report from Human Rights Watch.

In a string of royal decrees and an overarching new piece of legislation to deal with terrorism generally, the Saudi King Abdullah has clamped down on all forms of political dissent and protests that could “harm public order”…

Yet last month further regulations were issued by the Saudi interior ministry, identifying a broad list of groups which the government considers to be terrorist organisations – including the Muslim Brotherhood.

Article one of the new provisions defines terrorism as “calling for atheist thought in any form, or calling into question the fundamentals of the Islamic religion on which this country is based”.

I wonder how atheists over here feel about this? Y’know, the ones who call America a fascist state because Christians are allowed to worship in public. I’d ask them, but I don’t want to interrupt as they’re insulting 9/11 survivors.

This is a great reason to reduce our dependence on oil from these benighted Middle Eastern countries. But we can’t use fracking or nuclear power or anything else that actually works, because Hollywood has made movies scaring us away from them.

Let’s pump billions more taxpayer dollars into doomed “green” energy initiatives. Windmills! Solar power! Algae cars! Ed Begley Jr. on a treadmill! Anything to keep the globe from warming up so much that we’re buried in snow.

(“The sun so hot I froze to death.” Stephen Foster was the original global warmist!)

The next time you’re paying at the pump — so you can go to your job and pay the taxes that are wasted on boondoggles like Solyndra, and the GM bailout, and Obamacare, and everything else — thank Allah that you live in a free society.

Or else.
