How Come Atheists Never Sue Muslims?

The question on Twitter

Some Christians on Twitter (and elsewhere) like to ask why atheists don’t sue Muslims, but instead only sue Christians. Basically, they’re saying atheists are scared of Muslims, which is why organizations like the ACLU and the FFRF don’t sue Muslims.

The real reason why these organizations don’t sue Muslims is pretty simple – it isn’t cowardice…it’s simply that they’re not breaking the law in North America, while Christians break the law on a regular basis.

Islam isn’t the dominant religion here in North America. In fact, if a Muslim group were to try and do some of the things Christians like to do on a regular basis, Christians would probably be screaming ‘separation of church and state’ as loudly as any atheist.

Could you imagine a Muslim group insisting children pray to Allah in the classroom? Or if they had the audacity to read from the Qur’an in a public space, such as a school or public event payed for by the taxpayer?

There would be hell to pay.

Muslim’s tried to have a reality show that showcased them being as normal as the rest of the population, and they were slammed by the Christian community.

Muslim’s aren’t the ones trying to erect their religious icons on courthouse lawns. They’re not the ones forcing creationism in the science classroom and there is no ‘under Allah’ on currency or ‘In Allah we Trust’ in the pledge of allegiance. If we could somehow sue Islamic countries for the atrocities they commit against their citizens in the name of religion, we probably would. Unfortunately, that’s not how the real world works.

In fact, in many Islamic countries, you can get a beating or worse for admitting you’re an atheist:

A MOB attacked Alexander Aan even before an Indonesian court in June jailed him for two and a half years for “inciting religious hatred”. His crime was to write “God does not exist” on a Facebook group he had founded for atheists in Minang, a province of the world’s most populous Muslim nation. Like most non-believers in Islamic regions, he was brought up as a Muslim. And like many who profess godlessness openly, he has been punished.

In a handful of majority-Muslim countries atheists can live safely, if quietly; Turkey is one example, Lebanon another. None makes atheism a specific crime. But none gives atheists legal protection or recognition. Indonesia, for example, demands that people declare themselves as one of six religions; atheism and agnosticism do not count. Egypt’s draft constitution makes room for only three faiths: Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

Look, I’ve written about Islam on this blog. I think their religion is as dangerous and superstitious as Christianity. In my opinion, they’re both harmful to society, but I live in North America. In North America, Christianity holds sway.

The question I wish Christians would ask instead of ‘why are atheists not suing Muslims?’, is ‘why are Christians breaking the law so often they need to be sued in the first place?’.

  1. BCF? Don't waste time talking to this asshole. He's made up his mind and nothing is going to sway him, so fuck it.

    As far as him being an atheist? Maybe. But really I think he just has a weed up his ass about Christians.

    Oh and really? When some gets called a coward then denies they are a coward. THEN proceeds to give a 600 word explanation on WHY they aren't a coward……..They're probably a coward.

  2. Regardless of who that person is you're referring to as an asshole, the fact remains that the TDSB – memory sever me correctly it was Valley Park School-allowed the cafeteria to be turned into a Mosque every Friday where prayers were held and an Imam came to speak, worse still, menstruating girls were separated and made to sit at the very back, further back than non-menstruating girls which is far enough back as it is. Don't know of any church of any denomination in the Christian or sub-Christian world that makes menstruating women or women sit at the back-not even Westboro baptist on the USA does that. Christian woman are ot made to wear garbage bags over their bodies either, nor are they banned from talking to men other than their family members. Athiests, pick on Christians, for one reason only, they turn the other cheek unlike Muslims who love lawfare and revenge. Thankfully, I have some honest atheist friends in my circle who tell it like it is and are the first to state that Muslims are much more dangerous to society than Christians ever were or could be. Very poor and transparent rationalization on your part.

  3. Umm opinonator? perhaps you should address you excellent post a the owner of this blog (the atheist who wrote the article rather than myself). If you had read my posting you would see that I was criticizing the atheist not Christians..

    He is, at the very least ignoring quite a few facts in his desperation to smear Christians.

    Atheists fear muslims so they treat them with far greater deference than they do Christians. If atheists do not like that little fact, tough shit. It IS a fact.

    .

  4. Give the blogger a break. After all our own politicians are to stupid to see what Islam is . Importing half a million people whose only goal is to lie, cheat than kill us if not paid, to let us live another day.The MSM pimps for this cult of human sacrifice. Even pastors or priests are fooled. Islam is less a Religion than a political system of authoritarianism for desert raiders.Using a god to permit there barbarity towards Women, gays, children.
    Most Atheists would pee there pants in an Islamic Nation. They fear it all right. because there is no love or mercy from Muslims.He probably doesn't know that prayer in school has been banned but not gays with oral sex posters in a grade 6 class. The many many people now under investigation at the TDSB for sex crimes, including making child porn.
    The Bible is banned in schools except not the Koran.
    Our law that derived its moral stand on the ten commandments are being removed from courts. Mean while sharia law is being pushed on us daily by even our own companies. Cambell's halal soup any one?
    Because free speech is under attack from Socialists to stop us from learning about how monstrous Islam is world wide to any Religion or individual.

    This blogger is a Jonesie. He likes his cool-aide with double the arsenic.
    With a set of blinders

  5. Thought I was replying to the writer of the article, my mistake and apology. Wasn't able to edit my comment either-have some stubbornly sticky key's that don't respond to maintenance and to which I'm still getting use too. Agree that Christians are chosen because they're soft targets, and it's extremely disingenuous of the writer not to acknowledge that fact. Full stop due to cowardice-me thinks the writer protests too much!
