Hollywood Continues its Fear of Islam

When the upcoming movie “2012” – about the destruction of the world hits theaters, the things you won’t see destroyed are Muslim sites, especially the site of the Hajj, the focus of the most important pilgramage in Islam.  As director Roland Emmerich said in an interview: “We have to all, in the western world, think about this. You can actually let Christian symbols fall apart, but if you would do this with [an] Arab symbol, you would have … a fatwa, and that sounds a little bit like what the state of this world is. So it’s just
something which I kind of didn’t [think] was [an] important element, anyway, in the film, so I kind of left it out.”  In other words, Christian locations and symbols can be destroyed, no problem.  But Muslim locations and symbols?  That’s another story.  Apparently, the world continues in Islam’s fearful grip.

  1. The main reason for this is we as Christians know the difference between fact and fiction we know that this is a fictional movie and we also know that our God is not in any building or any symbol that the destruction of these symbols DOES NOT and WILL NOT mean the destruction of GOD

  2. From one D-lister mocking Jesus in an acceptance speech to a comedian on HBO splashing urine on a painting representing Jesus, it seems open season on Christians.

    Since there is no Christian equivalent to jihad (and no, the inquisition doesn’t count), there are no responses to this bullying…

    Except…

    Prayer.

  3. For a group like Muslims who are so particular in there beliefs and admant about how things are done, like no pork, no pigs, taking offense at things like piggy banks on someone’s desk, why is their founder named MoHAMMed?

    Personally, I’d like to see a cartoon about a bunch of terrorists (who all happen to be pigs) who blow themselves up at a restaraunt and wind up as BLT’s!
