On January 7, 2015, I was shocked again by the insanity of religion, namely Islam. A group of Muslim extremists massacred a French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. It is a magazine that applies freedom of speech fearlessly. They published a number of cartoons depicting Prophet Muhammad in the aftermath of other barbaric acts of violence committed by insanely extreme Islamists.
Charlie Hebdo, however, does NOT act by satirizing one particular religion. They ridicule Christianity as well by caricaturizing, for example, The Pope and The Vatican! They also publish uncomfortable cartoons depicting in humorous light all sorts of politicians. That's what freedom of speech is all about, axiomatic ones!
So, there I was on Facebook responding to messages on the occasion of a… religious holiday of the Romanian Christians (sic!) It was the day of Sfîntul Ion Botezãtorul (Saint John The Baptist). Isn't that cruelly ironic? While on Facebook, I saw the news on the Internet about a massacre and a huge manhunt in Paris. I went to the main article at BBC. There was a disturbing video as well. I was appalled! I expressed my indignation on my Facebook Timeline. I want you to read this, because Facebook deleted my post two times (at this time of writing).
I praised that magazine for their FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION in the aftermath of another case of BARBARIC INSANITY typical of Islamic fanatics.
Unfortunately, this is tragically true. ALL RELIGIONS ARE EVIL THIS DAY AND AGE — HUMANS DO NOT NEED RELIGION ANY MORE. However, Islam has the “barbaric distinction” of having by far the LARGEST PERCENTAGE of insane monsters! Matter of fact, EVERY evil committed today in the name of religious “beliefs” is the act of Islamists! That's the sad TRUTH, Muslims. Lighten up… Life on Earth belongs to humans only, not those cosmic hallucinations! Let the gods take care of themselves… aren't they supposed to be almighty???
Say, WHAT? My FREEDOM OF SPEECH has just been “beheaded” by Facebook! The following post of yours truly was DELETED 2 TIMES! I wrote the truth entirely. Yes, TRUTH is uncomfortable sometimes. Still, TRUTH IS ABOVE ANYBODY AND ANYTHING!
How many full-time employees does it take to monitor HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF POSTERS? Or, is it the government who does it? But how many employees does it take — and HOW MUCH MONEY???
“Money for NOTHING, checks for free!”
You ain't peacemakers, Facebookworms! YOU ARE ACCOMPLICES TO EVILS LIKE THE MASSACRE OF CHARLIE HEBDO!
My deepest condolences to the families of the victims and to the entire nation of France!
UNBELIEVABLE!!! I was DELETED 3 (three) times in a few hours!!! This time I simply announced that I had found a permanent place where I expressed my opinion on the CHARLIE HEBDO massacre.
I am still appalled that American entities succumb to fear and throw out the window democratic values. Not long ago, Sony kneeled in front of the childishly-stupidiotic dictator of North Korea because of a movie!
Appeasement and/or fear do NOT stop violent madness. Hitler proved that with the deaths of 55 million people…
The values of freedom were born millennia ago in Ancient Greece. They were all but destroyed by religion, especially Christianity and Islam. The Western world is lucky Rome was closer to Athens than Mecca was. And thus the Renaissance broke the chains of religion (Christianity mainly) link by link by link… The process still continues — but the situation in the Islamic societies is far, far worse… it is almost like the Dark Ages… déjà vu all over again…
On the cover, the prophet Mohammed, wearing a white robe and turban, sheds a tear while holding a “JE SUIS CHARLIE” sign, under the words “TOUT EST PARDONNÉ” (“All Is Forgiven”).
