Teddygate: The Sentencing; Islamos, Author React; Pardoned

Mohammad the Teddy BearPreviously, Sisyphus introduced us to this incredible story that starkly exposes the horrendous religious intolerance that is the hallmark of the “religion of pieces.” In short: a teacher in Sudan was charged with inciting religious hatred, or other such nonsense, for allowing her students to name a cute little Teddy Bear “Muhammad.”

The reason for this is that these backwards dirt monkeys take offense at the name of their false prophet being applied to an animal. Um, Earth to primitive savages: it’s not an animal, it’s a doll, a toy, a stuffed animal, a darn teddy bear. And maybe shouldn’t you be letting your heretical god do the judging? Hmmm?

Well the poor young woman was facing 40 lashes and six months in jail. That’s outrageous and silly, of course. In civilized nations, the only man who may gently discipline a woman through reasonable physical correction is her husband. But these bloodthirsty heathens think the state, what little there is of one, and their Sherry law should be able to beat women at will to satisfy their rampant bloodlust. This is clearly the kind of thing that happens when people are fooled and compelled into following a false and unholy “religion.”

Anyway, this important story and international conflict has continued to evolve. Since Sisyphus’ original eye opening post, a sentence has been handed down. Hold onto your hats.

British teacher Gillian Gibbons has been convicted of inciting religious hatred for letting her pupils name a teddy bear Muhammad and sentenced to 15 days in prison and deportation from Sudan, one of her defense lawyers said Thursday.

Mo Better Bear15 days in jail and deportation from that miserable hell hole over a TEDDY BEAR. Why not just skip directly to giving this brave young lady her freedom? But at least it would appear that G-d has intervened thanks in great part to our sympathetic prayers. Our G-d is indeed an awesome G-d.

The bottom line that this whole sorry episode has made clear is that irreligious intolerance must be stamped out. It’s time we redouble our efforts to spread the Gospel and supplant false religions where ever they are found, from Islam to Scientology, from atheism to Satanism, from Wiccanism to Mormonism. And there is much work to be done. Let’s get to it. This world needs to be purified and given over to Christianity, the only true faith.

See also: Newshound Michelle Malkin, as always, has more.

Brainstorm: Perhaps B4B should look for a teddy bear manufacturer that can make a Jesus bear. I’m sure our readers and other good Christians would just love to have a teddy bear named Jesus. What a perfect Christmas gift that would make. And it would also help stamp out religious intolerance while spreading the Word of G-d. Great idea, no?

Update: Just one minute, the bloodthirsty Islamos scream, we’re the religion of peace! Let’s live up to our name!

Thousands of Islamic fanatics wielding clubs and knives are marching through the streets of Khartoum demanding the execution of teddy bear teacher Gillian Gibbons.

As the mother-of-two started a 15-day prison term, protestors left mosques across the Sudanese capital to denounce the “lenient verdict” and call for the death penalty.

Lady teacher, it’s obviously kinda stupid to try to anything to help these fanatics, isn’t it? Once you get home, it’s time to start the carpet bombing. Death penalty…for naming…a teddy bear. Un-freaking-believable. Words do not adequately describe how sick and perverse these savages really are.

Update 2: Here we go again. A British author of children’s stories has changed one of his characters from “Mohammed the Mole” to “Morgan the Mole.” Welcome to dhimmitude. Next thing you know women will be donning burkhas in the west so as not to offend these bloodthirsty fanatics. The religion of pieces wins again. If we can’t stand up for our freedom, we might as well just pack it in.

Update 3: Teddy Bear’s Picnic. Our prayers have been answered. The President of Sudan was moved by G-d to pardon the teacher. But has she been so scarred by the experience that she will convert to Islam?

“I have a great respect for the Islamic religion and would not knowingly offend anyone,” Gibbons said in the statement. “I am looking forward to seeing my family and friends, but I am very sorry that I will be unable to return to Sudan.”

Be strong, Christian heart.

  2. The only thing I’d let Moo-slims have is NASA. They would lie less than the current administration would. While we debate about if Moo-slims are blasphemers (I say yes), we can use them to gather information and have computer chips planted in their heads by Conservative Christian churches. The only object we will give these Moo-slims while they are in this rocket is a single teddy bear! I am certain that these Moo-slims will go insane and lose their faith to some random object!

  5. I kinda think it’s great that she got 15 days and deportation.
    Not everyone is fully aware of the punishment of “lashes”. When done properly, 20 lashes could be enough to render someone unconscious and 40 could be fatal. It is understood among those who deliver the punishment that each lash must draw blood in order to be properly counted.
    Now she merely needs to spend 15 days in jail (granted, their jails are probably pretty bad and very bad if you are female) and then get deported. It’s gonna be hell for 15 days but that is worth it to be free of the country after that, from this point on her life can only improve, I would welcome her here regardless what her religion is, she stood up for what was right to her, and it was right.
    If only all of the oppressed people could be punished by deportation to a better place.

    I think that all of God’s creations that will soon be turned over to Satan for an eternity ought to be made use of. The UN and NASA are keeping many secrets from us, as you know. Well, Islamists and NASA agree on just about everything. In fact, they certainly make sure to carry around NASA ID cards if they live in the Southeast. What I propose we do is convince these fools that their God is on the moon, since after all, they WORSHIP it. We will have computer chips installed in their brain so that when the rocket takes pictures, it won’t transmit them directly to NASA. God gave us Islamists for a reason. This is why.

  17. In civilized nations, the only man who may gently discipline a woman through reasonable physical correction is her husband.

    Exsqueeze me? I’m going to disagree with you there. You discipline children, you disagree with adults. And if I disagree with DH, we discuss it like grownups — if it’s a particularly touchy subject, we simply pray together for guidance. It never fails to remind us of the love we share and about how petty and inconsequential most arguments really are.

    Back to the topic at hand, however, I am glad that that poor woman was spared a much worse punishment. Still…the inclination of so many Muslims to resort to violence when outsiders don’t follow the rules of their religion — it worries me. DH and I actually had an interesting discussion about it last night. He felt that if this woman was in Sudan, and was in THEIR culture, then it fell upon her to know that culture’s mores and values, and to follow them. While I do agree with this, I reminded him that unfortunately, it’s not limited to those who are physically IN a Muslim country, using the Danish cartoons as an example. If they only wanted to enforce Muslim values WITHIN Muslim countries, I’d have no issue with that. But they are violently imposing Muslim values outside of their own culture — and to me, that crosses a line.

  24. Arn, think about it. Have you EVER seen an original photo from anyone that isn’t NASA? JFK was opposed to abortion and homosexuality, but he unfortuantely was brainwashed into believing ‘scientists’. Or, he may be the most evil man that walked the country and appointed a conservative Supreme Court judge and rallied against taxes to throw us off. I think I’ll take the latter, since he was a womanizer and a genius liar, somehow managing to get the public to accept HIS invasions (although he was correct), which seems to whine anytime Bush decides to overthrow an oppresive regime. Richard Dawkins, Carl Sagan, and that atheist from Oakland are all smiling at how you buy into the lies of Big Government. Sam Brownback, like myself, knows the earth is flat. He’s probably been ordained by God to fly to the edge in a Cessna to see it, and serve in our great government. He’s the only flat earther that has gotten past the supersoldiers protecting the Ice Wall, but unfortunately, he’ll be executed for treason if he reveals this. The Islamists may be idiot savants that worship the moon, but at least they agree that the earth is flat. Who was that Muslim judge that said the earth was flat? He was a brave man, for the Stalin/Pol Pot/Mao space system (which marches on, somehow) controls the Middle East as well. Better an Islamist than a Communist, anyday, for Islamists are at least idiots in terms of being subtle.

    Actually, Bobby, yes, and I suppose so have you. There are like thousands of sattelites orbiting the earth and most of them are privately owned, NASA provided the transportation for a lot of them, but most of them are owned by tv and radio networks (this includes sattelites for news and weather, you never saw a sattelite photo on the news before?) and privately run businesses. Most of them are supplied with cameras, NASA only owns photos taken by NASA the rest are mostly in the public domain, they are there for anyone who wants to see them.

  32. Trogdor, the Arctic Circle is the center of the Earth. I’m astounded at how often these libtards think that when we speak of the flat earth, we’re talking about the kind of maps you see in elementary school. I suppose that their holier-than-thou attitude causes them to totally make crap up to ridicule Christians. Let’s see if the Islamists REALLY like you, huh? I bet they’d have your throats in a second.

    Arn, for all you and I know, those companies are all owned by NASA. Comcast, for instance, regularly cites NASA for its ‘articles’. I’d encourage you to take this up with the Flat Earth Society, since they are more experienced about this subject than I am. But, I suppose that you’re just going to attack me instead of actually taking the subject to the experts.

  38. Ok, exactly how this changed from the main topic to the flat earth bull is beyond me (obviously Bob doesn’t understand the subject at hand so he just goes back to his old favorite, he brings it up in almost every thread)
    So let’s take a look at it. According to the flat earth society, the earth is a flat round disk 24,900 miles in diameter (Bobs Earth is a flat square) the artic circle is in the center with a 150 foot tall wall of ice around the outer edge. (Bob’s is bordered by Antartica on all four sides) gravity is caused by a constant upward thrust of the earth holding everything down (Bob’s earth doesn’t move, so therefore has no gravity) the sun and moon are both 3000 miles above the earth and are both 32 miles in diameter, and they too are flat disks. Lunar eclipses, without a believable theory that would also support the rest of the flat earth theory, are said to be the result of as yet to be discovered objects that come between us and the moon blocking us from seeing the whole thing, this same object, which still hasn’t been found or identified, is what causes us to see the moon in its different phases. They have no explanation for solar eclipses as yet.
    Also in difference to Bob’s theory, according to the flat earth society, the upward thrust of the planet that gives it gravity was caused by the explosive thrust put out at the time of the big bang and we are still cruising upward from the force of that explosion.(Bob’s was created 6000 years ago)
    Tides are caused by the gentle rocking back and forth of the disk as it travels upward causing the water to slosh back and forth in the oceans. (no word on why the lakes don’t do that too)
    Today there are roughly 3500 people world wide who support the flat earth theory, and roughly 6.6 billion people who do not. (those are rough estimates based on the current number of members of the society combined with an estimated number of non members who have expressed their belief in the theory and the most recent census numbers)
    So you can continue to believe it if you like, Bob, but you are not only greatly outnumbered by the ones who know it’s not flat, and even those who agree with you that it is flat disagree with you on every other point. Think maybe it’s time you learn a little more about your own theory before you continue to preach on it.

  40. “Ok, exactly how this changed from the main topic to the flat earth bull is beyond me (obviously Bob doesn’t understand the subject at hand so he just goes back to his old favorite, he brings it up in almost every thread)”

    Comment #2. I’m discussing punishments for the Islamists, but Jim wants to talk about the flat earth theory. I’m not going to turn an invitation down. I find it ridiculous that people would be sentenced to death for naming their teddy bear/ child/ car after something else. All that needs to be done is to ask a simple name change, or seize the property and burn it (we are talking about Chrisianity now) if they do not comply.

    “So let’s take a look at it. According to the flat earth society, the earth is a flat round disk 24,900 miles in diameter (Bobs Earth is a flat square)”

    Circles also have corners, just as triangles and squares do. These corners just so happen to be at places so that when two diameters are drawn, they make a 90 degree bisection angle in the center. A corner is a significant change in direction. Circles are slightly stranger objects since they do not have bona fide ‘straight lines’, but a simple glance at parametrics should convince you otherwise that they don’t have ‘corners’.

    “the artic circle is in the center with a 150 foot tall wall of ice around the outer edge. (Bob’s is bordered by Antartica on all four sides)”

    See above.

    “gravity is caused by a constant upward thrust of the earth holding everything down (Bob’s earth doesn’t move, so therefore has no gravity)”

    This upward thrust is caused by space matter accelerating downwards. We do not move, and we do not rotate, which is the main point that I am against you, Arn.

    “the sun and moon are both 3000 miles above the earth and are both 32 miles in diameter, and they too are flat disks.”

    Yes.

    “Lunar eclipses, without a believable theory that would also support the rest of the flat earth theory, are said to be the result of as yet to be discovered objects that come between us and the moon blocking us from seeing the whole thing, this same object, which still hasn’t been found or identified, is what causes us to see the moon in its different phases.”

    I have strong reason to believe that this is ether reaching hyper cool-down points, transforming into solid. I haven’t debated the point on there yet, because some of them are secularists, and I try to disagree with secularists as much as possible. If I agree with them too much, I become one of them.

    “They have no explanation for solar eclipses as yet.”

    The sun has tungsten moving in a fairly constant speed through the sun. Occasionaly, the tungsten collides with matter with a greater atomic charge, thus overcoming it.

    “Also in difference to Bob’s theory, according to the flat earth society, the upward thrust of the planet that gives it gravity was caused by the explosive thrust put out at the time of the big bang and we are still cruising upward from the force of that explosion.(Bob’s was created 6000 years ago)”

    Atheists still haven’t found a way for the Big Bang to work for them. Their theory is somewhat compatible with the Bible, however, so they aren’t dead wrong. If you smack radioactive elements together enough, you could create a huge explosion, and explosions inevitably leave behind debris.

    “Tides are caused by the gentle rocking back and forth of the disk as it travels upward causing the water to slosh back and forth in the oceans. (no word on why the lakes don’t do that too)”

    Sodium chloride becomes rather unstable without a constant stream of sunlight on it. Actually, any alkaline/halogen combination will after a while. The rocking back and forth is likely caused by meteors that hit the cylinder’s base. Satan also inhabits the core area, so that may explain some stuff. However, we cannot expect to know the ways of Satan, and don’t you try either, Arn.

    “Today there are roughly 3500 people world wide who support the flat earth theory, and roughly 6.6 billion people who do not. (those are rough estimates based on the current number of members of the society combined with an estimated number of non members who have expressed their belief in the theory and the most recent census numbers)”

    Your ignorance of the power of the UN science establishment concerns me. It saddens me to know that a major part of this is in America. But Christians are meant to suffer, and this is one way of suffering.

    “So you can continue to believe it if you like, Bob, but you are not only greatly outnumbered by the ones who know it’s not flat, and even those who agree with you that it is flat disagree with you on every other point. Think maybe it’s time you learn a little more about your own theory before you continue to preach on it.”

    No. I do not see where I have disagreed with them anywhere. It is perfectly consistent with the Bible. What’s your excuse, pot? I don’t think it’s a sin on the level of capital punishment unless you sell the stuff, but please, do not try to tell people how to think when you are inhaling plant toxins.

    “As a note to the above, so far there doesn’t seem to be any church or religion that supports the flat earth theory, but I am still looking for one. (unless of course you want to call the flat earth society a church or a religion)”

    People can’t be open about this, you know. Churches might lose their tax deduction and have their members placed in mental institutions by NASA if they do promote the flat earth theory. I don’t think believing in a round earth is a sin until you’ve encountered the passage in Scripture and/or you try to force it on someone else, which also may be a reason why churches don’t take it up. Fortuantely, about 20% of Americans are geocentrists, so we are well on our way.

    Anyways, feel free to take it up there. Once again, I am telling you THEIR superiority.

    On another note, their calculations of the Earth’s circumference needs to be expounded a little bit. The actual circumference of Earth is 74700 miles, or the diameter is 26075 miles, using the Biblical value of Pi at 3. Their calculations of one of the two likely comes from either meteors being attached to the Ice Wall, or meteors chipping away at the Ice Wall.

  44. OK, Corkey has had his spotlight for awhile, let’s get back to the topic at hand: Muslims making themselves look bad.
    I agree with Psycheout so far as his outrage at how the Muslim world had reacted to what should have at most resulted in dismissal from a teacher’s duties. They’re reacting the way you’d expect from brainwashed, mindless followers. The controlling religion is irrelevant, what matters is how the people use it. When a people are used like this, it’s unforgivable. Religious leaders need to show more compassion for whom they lead. like the Pope, Archbishop of Canterbury, Dali Lama, and so on, Muslim head priests should strive for peace and coexistence between religions, not oppression and counterproductive conservatism that borders on the xenophobic.

  45. You know, I’ve agreed with psycheout twice now. (he better be careful, at this rate he may end up on our side) And this is one of them. When she was given the 15 day sentence I was very happy for her, she could sit it out then leave that hell hole. Then I see the news footage of people in the streets screaming for her execution, and I came very close to agreeing with the folks here that we should bomb the hell out of them.
    But that would still be wrong. There are still innocent people there, thousands of them that don’t agree with the mobs calling for her death. By bombing them we would be killing those people too. I argued that point with Lyssie earlier, because I believed we as a country should stay out of other country’s internal affairs, and she believed we should do something about it.
    Now, I’m a bit more inclined to agree with her. The people there are much worse off than I had realised, even the citizens call for her execution, rather than mercy. And for what? Letting children name a teddy bear. Lyssie is right, something needs to be done to help the innocents there. But what? Once again, I’m in agreement with Lyssie, I don’t know, but something.

  46. And now a British author of children’s stories renames one of his characters, bowing down to the Islamofascists in a startling display of subservient dhimmitude. Better get those bhurkas and prayer rugs while you can.

    See Update 2 for the details.

    I’m growing a beard.

  47. Thank the powers that be.
    She’s free. We can all breathe a sigh of relief.

  50. Spacebrother, you’re absolutely sick. There’s more to life than war, you know.

    Aside from the Darfur refugees, there is not a single person in Sudan worth saving. The fact that they would take away this woman’s life just for allowing her class to name a teddy bear ‘Muhammed’ is just sick. Islam ‘a religion of piece’, huh? Not only is it false, I don’t think they have contributed anything to any peace movement, or for that matter, anything important at all through history.

    Well, Bob, go to Sudan and tell them personally, move your heroic behind and show the Sudanese that you are a true man made of steel.

  53. “And maybe shouldn’t you be letting your heretical god do the judging? Hmmm?”

    Oh, the irony. It sickens and amuses at the same time. As I have said before, pay more attention to Matthew 6: 1-2.

  55. “I assume you’re not married. If you were, you’d certainly understand.”

    We don’t understand, Psycheout. Are you a wife-beater?

    Are you actually treating your wife–your partner in life for better or for worse, who is faithful and caring to you, and does the lion’s share of the housework–like your slave? Ever hear of the Emancipation Proclamation?

    “What I propose we do is convince these fools that their God is on the moon, since after all, they WORSHIP it.”

    Um, no. Allah = Yahweh = The Holy Trinity. They worship the God of Abraham, just as we do. They just took longer to enter their “kill everyone who’s not exactly like us” phase. Muslims do not worship the moon. Do some bloody research!!

    Oh, and I love the flat-earth thing. People have known since ancient times that the world is round. If the earth were flat, we’d be able to see all the skyscrapers in the world, just by standing atop a high hill and looking in the right direction. If the earth were flat, things wouldn’t disappear over the horizon. If the earth were flat, even geocentric theories would make no sense whatsoever.

    If the earth is flat, why is it day in the Western Hemisphere at the same time that it is night in the Eastern Hemisphere? After all, if the earth were flat, with the sun traveling around it, wouldn’t the sun be visible to everyone on the entire planet at the same time? But it isn’t. Flat-earth theory was great for the ancient Egyptians, but it sounds really, really stupid coming from an alleged “Christian” who really should know better.

  56. The teddy bear incident is an inevitable result of ignorant religious zeal and misplaced patriotism. It happens in every country in the world bar none. it leads to terrorism, bigotry, beheadings, misogyny, racism, war and exclusion. it is a good thing that the Sudanese government did finally see sense and realise the folly of their ways and how foolish they looked in the eyes of the global community.

    Such naked religious zealotry and mass hysteria, the perverting of a faith into a narrow minded extremist “cult”, as has been clearly illustrated by the sickening rallies on the streets of Khartoum, is by no means solely restricted to the Islamic faith. As we well know looking around this site.

    it is time for all religious extremists, from Islam to Christianity, to look deep inside themselves and realise how inafantle their behaviour really is.

    My expectations are, however, not that high!
