Gnu activist PZ Myers decides to weigh in on the latest international crisis:
It does not justify rioting or killing people. But let’s not mistake what it is: the movie is the work of a group of incompetent fundamentalist Christian assholes pissing on entire cultures.
Oops, not just Christian assholes. As noted in the article:
the film was in fact directed and produced by “an Israeli-American California real-estate developer who called it a political effort to call attention to the hypocrisies of Islam.”
It seems to have called attention to the hypocrisies and vileness of the Judeo-Christian Right.
Hmmm. Isn’t this the guy who spent weeks pissing all over Catholicism as a lead up to his infamous publicity stunt – nailing the “cracker”? If Catholics had rioted and killed someone because of that stunt, would PZ have willingly acknowledge some form guilt?
