Coptic Christian says Mohammed was nuts
LAST month the organisers of a talk scheduled to be delivered in Vienna by leading Coptic Christian Fr Zakaria Botros had to be cancelled after threats of violence were proclaimed by furious Islamists.
Hardly surprising, really, as the flamboyant Botros, pictured above with an admirer, Bob Blincoe (left) is no great lover of Islam – and Al-Qaeda has reportedly put a $60 million bounty on his head for bad-mouthing the demented inventor of the Religion of Peace.
The Muslim’s world’s hatred of Botros stems from the fact that he regularly savages the “prophet” Mohammed on the evangelical Arabic satellite station,Â al-Haya(Life TV) – especially on two weekly programmes: Hiwar al-Haq (Truth Talk), which he hosts, and Su’al Jari (Daring Question), hosted by ex-Muslim Rashid.
Both shows revolve around asking uncomfortable questions about Islam and its founder in an effort to prompt Muslims to reconsider the legitimacy of their faith.
Botros, for example, has pointed out that Big Mo was a bisexual, and sometimes a transvestite and a necrophile. He apparently enjoyed sucking on the tongues of children, commanded a woman to “breastfeed” an adult man, and advised believers to drink his urine.
Nothing wrong, of course, about being bisexual or a transvestite, but as for the rest … well… eeew!
Rashid, on the other hand, recently examined the theological implications of Mo’s hatred of the Gecko lizard, which the “prophet” accused of being “an infidel and enemy of the believers”. Muslims who kill it in the first strike receive 100 “heavenly-points,” whereas those who kill it in two strikes receive only 70.
Was there anything that lunatic didn’t want dead?
These broadcasts, according to this fascinating report, are viewed by millions of Arabic-speaking Muslims around the world. That the satellite station strikes a raw nerve with Muslims is evinced by the fact that it is formally banned in several Muslim countries, including Saudi Arabia, and is regularly condemned by Islam’s demagogues on mainstream Arabic media, including al Jazeera.
How great it would be great to describe Botros as rational. But alas he is not, for he says he believes that:
Only Christianity offers the truth. Based on my faith in Christ, I reject all other religious systems as man-made and thus not reflective of divine truths. Moreover, one of the greatest crimes committed by Muhammad – a crime which he shall surely never be forgiven for – is that he denied the grace and mercy that Christ brought.
But faith aside, common sense alone makes it clear that, of all the world’s major religions, Islam is most certainly false. After all, while I may not believe in, say, Buddhism, still, it obviously offers a good philosophical system and people follow it apparently for its own intrinsic worth. The same cannot be said about Islam.
Of all the religions it is the only one that has to threaten its adherents with death if they try to break away; that, from its inception, in order to “buy” followers, has been dedicated to fulfilling some of the worst impulses of man – for conquest, sex, plunder, pride. History alone demonstrates all this: while Christianity was spread far and wide by Christians who altruistically gave up their lives, simply because they believed in Christ, Islam spread by force, by the edge of the sword, by fear, threats, and lurid enticements to the basest desires of man.
Islam is by far the falsest religion – an assertion that is at once theologically, philosophically, and historically demonstrable.
