Mark Edward Noonan at Blogs For Victory had tossed yet another word salad as he tries to make the events in Paris yesterday fit into the neat box that is his religion based comfort zone. His article is called, “What I think about the Charlie Hebdo attack.” As a demon journalist, I do not believe that Noonan thinks very much at all.
First let me say this, no matter what a work of art, satire or comedy depicts, it is not a just cause to murder. Period. Ever.
Secondly, this attack on the cartoonists and an economist in Paris yesterday is the grossest form of an attack on free speech. What Charb and his other talented crew have been doing for decades is a cutting edge explanation of the absurdity of many of those that wield power whether that power be political, religious or economic. If they are offenders they are equal opportunity offenders singing the beards of Jews and Muslims, Socialists and Neo-Fascists alike and with great relish.
Third, I do believe that these events in France will end with a positive set of outcomes. The men who committed these heinous acts will be killed or captured. Those that inculcated hatred in the name of religion directed at these men also need to be brought to Justice, if not on Terra, then certainly here in Hell. I would say to the 1.7 billion Muslims on Terra there is no such entity divine as Allah that wants you to murder in his name. Yet another positive outcome would be to have moderate Muslims, which I still hold are the great bulk of them, will reform their religion and cast off these retrograde ideals that lead to carnage and eventually their own Souls being destroyed.
Mark Noonan has attempted to run his blog as a Catholic Theocrat and that is his right. He marched in lockstep with the President of the Catholic League, Bill Donohue on a variety of social issues like abortion and marriage equality, of course seeking to deny others who aren’t worshippers in his own religion a thing he would not take part in under any circumstances. Once again he agrees with Donohue who offers a glancing moment of disdain for the terrorists and then goes on to blame Charb for his own murder. Donohue says, “Stephane Charbonnier, the paper’s publisher, was killed today in the slaughter. It is too bad that he didn’t understand the role he played in his tragic death. In 2012, when asked why he insults Muslims, he said, “Muhammad isn’t sacred to me.” Had he not been so narcissistic, he may still be alive. Muhammad isn’t sacred to me, either, but it would never occur to me to deliberately insult Muslims by trashing him.” By saying such a thing I can only decide in the end that Donohue and Noonan like him as apologists for all thing heinous in the Catholic world while not condoning violence are still socially illiterate. These men are trapped, like the violent and caliphitic Muslims in a medieval view of the world upon which they live. In the 21st century I would expect people to be better at thinking for themselves.
