Religion is a mental illness.

There are millions of us who are so fed up with the bullshit that is religion, especially Islam.
Why do we have to respect peoples feelings when they choose to believe in the most ludicrous nonsense.

Christianity was brought into mainstream existence by emperor Constantine in the 4th century. The roman empire was falling apart.  He needed something to unite all the different clans, tribes and countries under his control. He got the biggest story tellers together and they put many of the best tales together in one book-The bible.

Skip forward to the 7th century and the same scenario happened again. Only this time with the Arab countries.
If Mohamed did exist he must have thought-hmm them Christians have sorted out their differences,  I wonder if I can do the same with the Arab tribes.
And if Mohamed didn't  exist someone basically had the same idea and invented a figurehead.
After all this had already been done with Jesus. No one can be sure if he existed, or was just conjured up as a figure head.
If either Mohamed or Jesus did exist though they must have been phsycotic to think they were the son of god-as Jesus did- or had spoken to god -as Mohamed did.

At the time humanity knew nothing about life, death or the universe. We worshipped hundreds of different gods. The Christian god just rose to the top of the popular belief system.
Before he was elevated up to an all powerful god he was just a genie who lived on top of  mountain; his name was Yahweh.
Likewise until Mohamed-or his creators- elevated Allah to the exalted position he was just a moon god.

So here we are a one and a half millennia later and these fables are still dragging the Human  race down.

People like me get called islamophobic for laughing at the ridiculous belief system that is Islam.
Christianity can on the whole take this criticism.We broke the taboo years ago. We had the likes of Dave Allen, Father Ted, Monty Python etc who went out of their way to poke fun at god and Jesus.

We need someone to do the same with Islam. We need a 'life of Muhamed' movie.  A parody of the absurdness  of Islam and how ridiculous it is. Christ if I had the money I would fund it myself.
But there's one thing we can all do now.  We can all take the piss and we can criticise We can all refuse to be labelled as racist or islamophobic.

Our leaders are spineless and bow before this ridiculous ideology  but we don't have to. We can fight back at least with satire and jokes. Islam doesn't deserve respect, and it shouldn't get any.
