The Atheologist

Theology is the study of theism; Atheology is the study of atheism. I am The Atheologist. Why don’t Atheists embrace religion when the vast majority of humans do? Why are Atheists regarded by most of society as thugs, rabble, vermin and generally naughty people. The Atheologist will attempt to seek out the true answers to these and many more questions by using logical assumptions, interviews with people of all faiths and really, really good research. The Atheologist wants to know.

    Benny and Mo and the Religion of Peace

    Pope Benedict XVI has apologized for offending Muslims and Islam, (the religion of peace), in a speech in Bavaria last week. He said the medieval text which he quoted did not express in any way his personal opinion, adding the speech was an invitation to respectful dialogue. The Pope has been under intense scrutiny amid angry reactions from throughout the Muslim, (the followers of the ‘religion of peace’), world.
    The murder of an Italian nun and her bodyguard in Somalia may be linked to Muslim anger in reaction to the Pope’s speech. And yesterday the surge of violence continued. Two churches in the West Bank were set on fire, following five incidents in the West Bank and Gaza on Saturday, when five churches were firebombed and fired at.
    In an internet statement, an al Qaeda linked militant group vowed a war against the, "worshippers of the cross", in response to the pope's speech. The Mujahideen Shura Council, according to Reuters, had this to say:

    "We tell the worshipper of the cross (the Pope) that you and the West will be defeated, as is the case in Iraq, Afghanistan, Chechnya,…We shall break the cross and spill the wine....God will (help) Muslims to conquer Rome. ... God enable us to slit their throats, and make their money and descendants the bounty of the mujahideen."

    It is obvious to the Atheologist that Muslims the world over have such a deep respect for and value so highly what the Pope has to say about their, “religion of peace”, that he has the ability to turn Muslims away from their peaceful, loving and respectful ways. It seems to the Atheologist that the Pope now has a lot more to apologize for. He needs to apologize for not apologizing quickly enough and now he needs to apologize for all of the violence and killings that have occurred and are still occurring, all due, as the Atheologist sees it, to his lack of understanding of Muslims and their, “religion of peace”.

    Yes - I see clearly now. The Pope should is clearly responsible. Perhaps he should offer reparations, or just offer an appeasement, like the very tip of Italy. Nobody goes there anyway.

    Mojoey, if you give a Muslim a heel tip they take the whole shoe.

    BTW, the Pope didn't really apologize, he said he was sorry for the reaction.

    If he did indeed say that he doesn't agree with the words of the 14th century writer, he is either a retard or a liar.
    If he is a liar, I guess he can confess and make good with God again.

    Yes beaj, they might even take Sicily.
    And that is one good thing about being a Catholic, the confessional cures all.

    I was very disappointed by the Pope's apology. I suppose the spirit of the Crusades and the desire to wrest land claimed by Jews and Christians from dirty Muslim hands has dissipated. Oh wait, it works the other way now.
