Off-topic: Czech government imposed a full prohibition of beverages with 20 or more percent of alcohol, after 19 people died by methanol poisoning in recent days. Well, I think the prohibition is counterproductive.
Millions of Muslims – including the Iranian mullah-in-chief and the official Fars News agency – seem to be super-upset about a $50,000 movie by a Coptic guy who lives in South California (and who has made some illegal financial transactions in the past).
Khamenei is crazy enough to demand the U.S. will execute the filmmaker for blasphemy. Savages in Libya have murdered the U.S. ambassador. U.S. flags are burning everywhere. All the top 12 stories at Fars News right now are dedicated to the movie: no kidding.
I couldn't understand what and where the movie was. Finally, I decided that it's really this 14-minute silliness:
Sort of an amusing a piece but not something I would recommend for Emmy awards. ;-)
How such an unimportant amateurish video with a rather small number of views can make someone go ballistic is beyond me. Some of our ancestors loved to protect similar insane religious cults and threaten everyone who didn't with blasphemy. But holy cow, I really do hope that these reactions belong to the dumping ground of the history. If you're angry, just f*ck your personal Allah and Muhammed and Piss Bullshit Upon Him (PBUH). The anger is just your problem.
I was also disgusted by the reaction of Mitt Romney, reinforcing the idea about the Mormon-Muslim proximity. Romney, it's just not your f*cking business to tell people what they should show in their films and criticize a movie on religious grounds, especially if you haven't even watched it. Please shut your f*ck up and do your best to protect the basic constitutional principles of the U.S. which say, among other things, that Coptic Egyptian Americans have the full right to shoot movies describing their religious attitude that Mohammed was a f*cked-up faggot which is just a different attitude than the attitude that he was a messenger of God – the former is surely more likely.
