Quote# 89280

[In a possible hate crime, large amounts of bacon were found scattered at an Islamic prayer site.]

Lol.....somedays it is like living in an alternate universe. Right after 911 some friends and I toyed with the idea of putting a greased pig in a gated mosque here...lol. Glad we didn’t do it..we could be serving time for a silly prank.

God help this country. Our overlords are restless to destroy freedom.

Would you mind if I burned Jesus in effigy in the parking lot of your church? It would just be a silly prank.

Seeing as America is not a Christian country, no matter how much you claim it to be, other religions have precisely the same rights. Denying them that would be to destroy freedom, not vice versa.

Oh My Dog!

How are our "overlords" trying to destroy freedom?

By saying everyone has a right to worship freely without fear of harassment?

Yeah, that's really undermining our freedoms there.

You were going to grease yourself?

Points for creativity I guess, pig!

Sorry. I would mock the quote, but I can't stop laughing at this. So sue me.

In all seriousness, the law has no responsibility to protect superstitions. This is not harassment, and there's no good reason to punish those responsible.

Just because some people genuinely and sincerely take offence at harmless nonsense, we should NOT punish harmless nonsense.

Just because Free Republic is full of people who are either hateful blatant liars or total morons if they actually believe their own propaganda, that doesn't give us the right to start down the terrible path of anti-blasphemy laws. Taunting people for beliefs is NOT a hate crime. For their skin color, yes. For their gender, yes, for their sexual orientation, yes. But NOT for the things they claim to believe. Saying you can't mock people for beliefs when the beliefs are religious (when you can do it for any OTHER sort of belief, like political beliefs) is giving special protection to religion. And it's special protection that the liars LIKE the people at Free Republic would take extreme advantage of more so than they already do. There's a REASON churches get so damned political - it's because the politicians learned long ago that it's the easiest way to peddle horesshit is to get your preachers to do it for you because it's an environment where criticism is considered a faux pas.

Never free enough for you, is it, Moonfront Republican? You can't bully other people like that without going to jail.

Wait, how can this be a hate crime? It has to be criminal first. I don't think leaving bacon all over the place is criminal.

"God help this country. Our overlords are restless to destroy freedom."

You mean the "freedom" to put, in a place of worship, something the members consider as unclean?

Not a hate crime, maybe littering.

Edit: Oh, and wasting bacon.

Why the hell shouldn't they be prosecuted over it? Making a mess in someone else's property is vandalism if nothing else, why should it suddenly be alright just because a bully did it?

And the greased pig idea is even worse, because a live pig may panic and injure someone. And get injured too. So you add reckless endangerment and animal abuse to vandalism.

(And there, without even touching the fact that these guys thought it was okay to victimise people because of their religion. That's an extra level of wrong.)

8/31/2012 4:52:51 AM

fuck that

Sending anyone to prison over bacon is ridiculous and this is the first time I've disagreed with a quote being on here this strongly.

Well, Matante, don't complain about the Pussy Riots being jailed for "religious hate" then.
The "damage" done to the victims is laughable, therefore there is no particular reason to punish the act.

Doubting Thomas

What is it with this idea that pigs are Muslim kryptonite? As if bacon scattered around a Muslim prayer site means they won't just clean it up and go back to praying. I could be wrong, but I was under the impression that the only prohibition that Muslims have against pigs is eating them.

Scattering bacon shouldn't be considered a hate crime, but it should be a crime to waste tasty bacon.

Relgion shouldn't be free from criticism or even mockery, but this is just needless, moronic bullying. Furthermore, put a pig in a mosque, and it will cause a disturbance and probable damage. For that, you should be prosecuted, just as you would be if you put a pig in a McDonald's or a private residence. Might I also respectfully ask what you would do if some Muslims put a greased pig in your church? (The Bible says pigs are unclean too, you know). Or wrote offensive grafitti on its walls? Have some self-awareness, vacuum-brain.

It should be. It's a shocking waste of good food.

Reminds me of Craig Baker's pig race next to a building site for a mosque in Katy, Texas 5 years ago.

Juvenile harassment based on pure ignorance, but I wouldn't call it a hate crime.

Well, yeah. Living in an alternate universe is a defining characteristic of freepers.

I'm amazed that people on here can actually defend bigoted shit like this.

Undoubtedly, this is a hate crime.

You're right! I just want to go into a church and piss all over a statue of Jesus and jizz on the virgin Mary but nooooo, our overlords decided that that's somehow a "crime" and "extremely offensive". Why do they hate freedom?

Seriously though, the Muslims OWN the prayer site and that gives them the right to restrict whatever behavior they want. It's called property rights. Amazing how the same conservatives that practically worship property rights suddenly get amnesia when there are Muslims involved.

Last I checked if you owned a store and someone poured maple syrup on the floor and on the windows you could get charged with vandalism and this is what the bacon thing is: vandalism.

Taunting is one thing. If the person went up to a Muslim and shouted "Bacon, bacon, bacon!" at them that wouldn't be a crime. tasteless, yes, but not a crime. Putting unwanted items (especially bacon which probably smelled bad after being out in the open all night and presenting a health hazard) on someone else's property is vandalism. Vandalism is not free speech.
