The Young Turks is one of the best news shows of the 21st century. To me the second best, the first being The Alyona Show. However, when it comes to delivering news about religion, I feel The Young Turks are a little bit bias because of their own individual beliefs. Take a look at this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgQZ2-N1nho
Yes, I agree with Ana, that people shouldn’t care when someone’s making fun of their religion but saying that Atheists should have a day every year to make fun of someone else’s religion just to make them get use to the fact that their religion will be made fun of is stupid! Why should Atheist even care about other people’s religion? Why can’t they just be Atheist and get on with their lives? Why should they have to torment other religious groups every year just to make a point that they CAN torment them whenever they want?
You said it yourself Ana, that people shouldn’t care about their religion being made fun of because it’s just a joke. They shouldn’t take it seriously. It is not for any bad intentions but this is. It doesn’t seem like a joke to me doing this every year purposely.
Moreover, yes Ana, it will cause violence. Did you forget what happened in Afghanistan when the US soldiers burned the Qur’an? There was chaos! Not just in Afghanistan but in Pakistan and other countries as well. Why go through all of that? Why is it SO important?
I personally think that by doing this Atheist are going to become unpopular or in some cases more unpopular. Now I know you guys don’t care about what other people think about your beliefs but come on you’re only human and any human would prefer their religious beliefs being respected than being hated because of it. My advice to The Young Turks: stop encouraging people to make fun of religion and stick to the real news you’re famous at reporting.
