Ha ha, just kidding. Turns out "the religion of peace" is just a slogan, and Muslims react poorly to blaspheming Muhammad.

I think that while criticizing religion in such a way isn't uncommon for here, more care should be taken towards not creating moral panic over Islam since unlike Christians, Islam is being associated with a certain stereotype of people that is becoming more commonly victim to hate crimes, and therefore there should not be encouraging of such a thing. Especially when it's in the same words and tone as most right-wing hatemongers. (talk) 16:48, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

New type of spam?[edit]

I was surprised to find in my Spam folder several e-mails with subject lines mentioning the name of the movie. Has this happened to anyone else? I deleted them before getting curious about the contents.--ZooGuard (talk) 10:09, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

The Four Horsemen[edit]

Sam Harris is a prominent New Atheist and one of the 4 horsemen, see The Four Horsemen; Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and Sam Harris in a 2 Hours Discussion About Religion And Faith Culture. Therefore it's reasonable to quote him. Proxima Centauri (talk) 11:28, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Quotes should be included only if they're really good, not just because you happen to think the person who said it is important. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 11:49, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

We give it too much credit[edit]

I think we give it too much credit by constantly referring to it as though it's a film which actually exists. As far as I can tell the only thing what was ever produced was the 14 minute trailer for the non-existent film. Perhaps we should call it a hoax-film--Bob"I think you'll find it's more complicated than that." 19:19, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Spokesman for?[edit]

The version I just edited had this: Steve Klein, who has past involvement with hate groups, action against abortion clinics, Mormon temples and mosques and helped train Christian paramilitaries, is acting as a spokesman.

On trying to clean up the "and's" and &ct.'s, I noticed: " acting as a spokesman" - anyone know what he is acting as a spokesman for? That would slightly change the sentence structure here. I would like to point out that the sentence could become less-unwieldy with some extra info here. Thanks! Kassorlae (talk) 20:25, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Was there a good reason for taking this out?[edit]

An earlier version had material that was later taken out. Shouldn't both sides of the free speech debate be covered? I restored it. Proxima Centauri (talk) 13:50, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

This page is ridiculous it refers to the depiction of Muhammad and his early followers as 'puerile and bigoted' - When what is the problem with that exactly? What confuses me more is that if you go on the page about the movie Life of Brian it goes on about how hilarious it is etc. Either Islam is a religion that deserves to be made fun of as much as any other or it is somehow exempt of criticism and reversed for special treatment.

I haven't seen the film, we are often too pro Islam though. Christopher (talk) 12:56, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
I still have my doubts that this even exists as a finished product.--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 17:30, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
