Take this in your face:



Martin Scorsese directed a film based on the book, titled The Last Temptation of Christ and released by Universal Pictures in 1988. It stars Willem Dafoe as Jesus, Harvey Keitel as Judas Iscariot, and Barbara Hershey as Mary Magdalene. David Bowie and Harry Dean Stanton also appear as Pontius Pilate and Paul, respectively. Most of the film was shot in Morocco.
Scorsese is a lapsed Catholic; nevertheless, he maintains a traditionally Christian faith in Christ. He had been wanting to make a film version of Jesus' life for many years. He first attempted to make one in the early 1980s, but the project had to be placed on hold. Finally in 1988, The Last Temptation of Christ was completed and released to theaters.
Protests against the movie from the religious community began before the film had even finished production. The studio was expecting a backlash due to the controversies revolving around any media treatment of Christ (see dramatic portrayals of Jesus Christ), but the protests accompanying Last Temptation were unprecedented. Major religious leaders in the United States blasted the film in fiery sermons, and condemned its subject matter as pornographic.
On 1988, October 22, a French catholic fundamentalist group launched molotov cocktails inside the Parisian saint Michel movie theater to protest against the film projection. This terrorist attack injured thirteen people, four of them where severely burned.
en.wikipedia.org...

They burned a movie theater?..




Some leaders in the Catholic Church including Mother Angelica predicted that California would sink into the ocean if the film was released.
en.wikipedia.org...






Having received a dozen death threats, the studio insisted Martin Scorsese be accompanied to the film's premier by four bodyguards. Paul Schrader, meanwhile, had to contend with the fact that the protest against the film in his home town was organised by his own father!

OH OH.. there were deatht threats too…

Deep Blue is absolutely right about the Christian reaction to The Last Temptation of Christ. I believe there was an incident of someone shooting at the theater screen as well. When I saw the movie, there were (non-violent) protesters outside and everyone's belongings (my purse) were searched.

There are also cases of 'Crazy Christians' killing abortion doctors.

So, we really can't say that one religion is more sane than the other. Both have their extremists who feel that taking violent action is the way to solve problems and respond to being offended.

But in both cases, the fault is with those who take action, not those who speak, draw or otherwise legally express themselves or their beliefs.

Edit: I don't mean to imply that the extremists in both cases are of equal extreme (if that makes sense). Muslim extremists (generally) are FAR more radical, offendable and more apt to be violent or kill someone. Calling for the death of someone is not nearly as popular in the Christian culture as it is in the Muslim culture.

After all, as far as I know, nobody got killed over this little guy.

And again I want to press forward how negative religious zealousness afflict the mind of already ignorant human beings! -Not always, but sure often enough, in massive gatherings of people. If they are 'brainwashed' too, it will be even easier to instigate a ruckus.

I can't say that California has submerged yet. Neither have I seen Allah been doing anything great the last 2000 years.

the muslim world is overreacting big time to this 'cartoon'. By their reaction to this (in terms of violence, burning buidings, etc... (spitting words of destruction to denmark), I am beginning to think the middle east can never be saved.... and will never have peace. They are a lost cause.

That is truly sad...

Now Iran is threatening to cancel contracts of all nations who printed the cartoons.




Iran threatens to cancel European contracts in cartoons row

Iran’s president ordered his commerce minister today to study cancelling all trade contracts with European countries whose newspapers have published caricatures of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported.


I'm sure Iran will suffer for this when it comes to deciding how Europe and the rest of the world will deal with Iran over their nuclear program.

Deep blue, just because you can find the odd event done by christians you cannot use that to justify the Islamic actions. To do so labels the muslim violence as the level of the WORST of the extreme christian actions. These actions were also taken by an extreme and small group of christians, for the vast majority, there was no violence.

I predict we will see worse to come, already embasies are being burnt, i think innocent people will soon be killed. In that case Islam will lose any moral high ground in the matter, and in the mind of many the picture of Mohammed with a bomb on his head will be justified.

The actions of muslim outrage only fuel the stereotypes of muslims in the western world, and reinforce the belief that its a religion of violence and repression.

An apology for what? An apology for printing cartoons? An apology because Denmark has freedom of speech? An apology for danish ways of life or an apology for danish imams travling the middle-east countries spreading lies and rumors... please tell me what apology they want!!!


an apology for a serious offend to their religion ...
The problem is that Europeans are ignorant with the importance of Mohammad in Islam.. it is really really really serious offence to just draw a picture (any picture) of Mohammad , so its worse to make comic cartoons about him.

This is totally unnecessary unless it is deliberate.. why on earth you would like to trigger the rage of 1 billion Muslims around the world . Just avoid it.


Correct me if im wrong, but the Koran does not forbid the drawing of the Prophet mohammed does it? I dont think there is a passage that says that it is forbidden to draw a picture or representation of the Prophet.
Now the way i understand it, Mohammed was not the promised masiah was he, and i believe he said that the reason he didnt want his image drawn because he didnt want to become a symbol of worship, after all only God has that right dosent he.
So if if the Koran does not forbid the drawing of the image of the Prophet and Mohammed was just a man, an important man but a man just the same, and not the promised Masiah why do Muslims treat him in a way akin to worhip? Is that not akin to blasphemy?
As i see it even though the pictures are in bad taste, there is nothing that says that the image of the Prophet cannot be drawn, only the teachings of the clerics.
So if someone drew a tasteful picture of Mohammed and put in a paper would Muslims have reacted in the same way?

And the reason The last temptaion of Christ caused so much trouble was because Christians believe Christ to be the son of God, the Masiah. Not just a man like Mohammed was. See the difference?

Lebanese demonstrators torched the Danish consulate in Beirut

said at least seven wounded protesters were carried away in ambulances.




Reuters

Some stood on top of a fire engine, one of three damaged by protesters to prevent fire fighters putting the blaze out.

It was not immediately clear if the building was empty.

Lebanese security forces had fired tear gas at a crowd of about 20,000 as they marched toward the Danish consulate.

Witnesses said security forces also fired shots in the air and used water cannon to disperse the protesters, who burned two civil defense vehicles, a police car and an army jeep.


According to witnesses several Muslim clerics were on the streets trying to urge restraint:




Mohammad Rashid Qabani, Lebanon's top Sunni Muslim cleric, urged restraint.

"We don't want the expression of our condemnation (of the cartoons) to be used by some to portray a distorted image of Islam," he said. "Today is a big test for us. Let our expression of condemnation be according to the values of Islam."

Ok, I have had enough. Through all these years, where scandinavian countrymen, -and women have tried to support the palestinians through their intifadas, and THIS is how 'true' muslims show us their thanks?
-I am not that old, but I do remember Sabrah and Shatillah!

That's it. No more aid from me. I know western, and christian society, can be hippocrytes too, but this is beyond comparison. The people of Norway, or Denmark, or Sweden, has never made uprisings like this. Ever before.


I can see no true muslim in this picture, do You?

Now, tell me, why shouldn't our countries expell these foreign agitators out of our countries? Of course, the choice could be to jail, or (better yet?) an internation camp? I can't see why they choose to bend their limits, when they are FREE TO LEAVE THE COUNTRIES, if it sucks this bad! #¤%& -I'll drive them to the border of my country myself, for free, if they sign a contract, that says; "if they return, they forfeit their lives, and does so at their own risk as an lawless individual."

And all of this because of some fabricated pictures. And the deliberate misleading (and telling lies) by some fundamentalist imams from Denmark. Why do the protesters around the world still believe the lies originating from the Danish imams? The protesters are mislead and confused. They don´t know the truth and have not seen the 12 real cartoons. Now it is all spiraling out of control when in fact these imams should be on trial...

this is what is going to happen if people are being kept stupid ignorant and dumb.

in the middle east the leaders there mainly muslim high priest ect have banned all books text movies ect which can undermine there power.

people have been brainwashed and the problem is the imams in western eu come from these regions and not from western eu it self so the imams are controling the muslims in for example Netherlands and so that is why some of the people here are going on the streets but less then in middle east because here they have books and movies which question some of the things said by imams and high priests.

Aye, and the, imo, rabid imam Abu Laban, seems to have realised the mess he has created, and is now trying to distance himself from it, to release himself from all responsibility made by agitating! I freaking loathe him!
Dansk Folkeparti got my vote the next time. Abu Laban has been in Denmark the last 20 years, but he obviously haven't integrated himself even yet, into the danish community.

HE should have gotten a Fatwah, not those people trying to rebuild the infrastructure in those wartorn countries!


It is amazing how one person managed to put down a whole religion, in so short time! Sure, blame Jyllandsposten, but remember, that no western society could care less two days later, if nobody started to protest!
I'll create my own religion right now, and issue a 'fatwah' on his, and other Labanists a¤%es!
Persona Non-Grata!

Grandmufti of Lebanon denounce riot!


Mohammed Rashid Kabbani, states that the demonstrators were infiltrated by agitators (duhh...) whom tried to "destabilize Lebanon".

Well, they sure lost my support...

In the TV-station 'Future TV', he made an appeal to tone down the agressivity, and he said that someone tried to make use of the demonstrations to create havoc, and "distort the image of Islam".

About time they start talking about the 'distorted image of a religion'! Perhaps even consider, if it isn't already distorted? (duhh...)

Seven Presidents of the EU condemn violent acts!
Germany, Finland, Estonia, Hungary, Italy and Austria, as well as Portugal.
Thanks! Appreciate it!

Check this out. This is about Abu Laban, the man responsible for touring the middle east with fabricated cartoons as well as speaking with two tongues. Download the .pdf file and read it!


More lies from Danish Imams

Last Friday the CT Blog revealed how a delegation of Danish Muslims, led by Copenhagen imam Abu Laban, toured the Middle East in December and showed fabricated cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed in a very offensive fashion, even though the pictures had never appeared on Jyllands Posten

[---more---]

Abu Laban, in fact, was first shown speaking on Danish television condemning the boycott of Danish goods (in English), then shown interviewed on al Jazeera, cheerfully commenting on the effectiveness of the boycott (in Arabic).
