It Is, Whoever You Say It Is
Holy hounded hooraleens in a harem, will you take a look at the crapload of comments on Shadowrunner’s blog?!?
Number of comments aside, after wading through the shitstorm of comments I realised that some commentators had missed Shadowrunner’s point and just taken offence at the very idea that he had DARED to draw some doodles and refer to it as the Prophet. I mean, come on, seriously. Even he admits it was ‘crappy stickfigure art’. Just because he says it was a certain someone, doesn’t make it so, right? 🙂 Not unless you really want it to be. Maybe you just want to get the ol’ blood boiling and see what you look like with that huge big nerve on your forehead throbbing like… like.. hmm throbbing, hard like… ummmm what? Wait, I got sidetracked. Where was I?
Soooo… like, despite what many seem to believe, drawing the likeness of the Prophet isn’t something new. It’s been done for ages and often times by Muslims themselves. And some of the art is really breathtaking in beauty and style. Take a look at some here. Someone told me that one of the paintings is actually shown on TVM during ‘bangi’ time. Gasp! Blasphemy! TVM should be burned to the ground. And not necessarily because they show the painting but you know, just coz they are TVM.
Anyway, I seriously doubt the artists who drew those beautiful paintings were beheaded or drawn and quartered (or whatever tortures are reserved for those who commit such a sin) but what do I know, maybe they were.
By the by, I do realise that I’m late posting the second part of the previously promised “Seducing the Hypocrite” but I’ve run into some unexpected obstacles. Things aren’t going exactly as planned but don’t worry, it just means there will more interesting exploits to read about in the second part. 😉
