“There are none so blind as those who will not see. The most deluded people are those who choose to ignore what they already know.” John Heywood, 1497
Recently, in the NY Post, the well-known comedian Bill Cosby said the following in a piece titled, “Bill Cosby: A Plague Called Apathy”:
I’m a Christian. But Muslims are misunderstood. Intentionally misunderstood. We should all be more like them. They make sense, especially with their children. There is no other group like the Black Muslims, who put so much effort into teaching children the right things, they don’t smoke, they don’t drink or overindulge in alcohol, they protect their women, they command respect. And what do these other people do?
They complain about them, they criticize them. We’d be a better world if we emulated them. We don’t have to become black Muslims, but we can embrace the things that work.
Sir, with all due respect (whatever that may be following your racism against your white audience), you are perniciously clueless on the ideology of Islam … and THAT kind of apathy toward obtaining facts is FAR more perilous than smoking or sugared sodas.
Let’s begin with Islam. An ideology that is corrupt from it’s bloodthirsty, pedophile of a founder, to its maniacal minions to this day. Here are a few facts for Mr. Cosby to assimilate:
— Islam is a misogynist cult where women are treated as chattel. “Men are rulers of women”, the Quran asserts. This is one of hundreds of Islamic rulings that diminish women to subservience by the virtue of their gender. Men are permitted and commanded to beat their wives if they are disobedient. (Quran 2:228; 4:34; 38:44)
— Islam has a caste system with the male believer on top, and females and children are always at the bottom. (Quran 61:10-12; 45:21; 33:36)
— Freedom and Democracy are anathema to Islam. (Quran 33:36; 39:9; 45:21; 4:123 [People of the Book are Jews and Christians])
–Islam’s justice system is illicit. In the Sharia court of law, a woman’s testimony counts as only one-half of that of a man; the due process is either absent or perfunctory; thieves are subjected to amputation of limbs; homosexuals are executed; adulterers are stoned to death (and it’s usually the women); and apostates are executed. (Quran 2:282; Sura 5:33; Bukhari 52:269; 6:60:79)
And this merely scratches the surface of an ideology that, when followed devoutly, is a scourge upon humanity.
By the way, Mr. Cosby: A scourge is a plague.
