The Big Fear

Sony’s decision to pull the film (which depicts a fictional assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un)
sends a clear message that by threatening people with violence, you can get your way. We’ve always known this to be an effective tactic, of course, but rarely is such violence threatened when the stakes merely entail the showing of a movie.

South Park nailed this “lesson” in the 200th and 201st episodes of the series back in 2010. The episodes aired after Trey Parker’s and Matt Stone’s latest run-in with Comedy Central executives who were squeamish about the creators’ desire to depict Muhammad, which of course is haram, as the world found out in 2006 when Muslim fanatics rioted and attacked several European embassies after a Danish newspaper published cartoons of him.

In episode 201, Kyle and the boys come to realize what the only “true power” is, as a censored image of Muhammad stands in the background.

Now it's claimed that China "helped" the Nork's SONY hack.  Duh, of course they did. Skim through the factoids below and tell me they have the technical wherewithal to hack more than a good cough. 

6 crazy facts about North Korea 

Comedy Central is owned by lefty Via Com, so it is not surprising that they'd fold like a bad poker hand in the face of threats to their sorry asses.  A few years ago, when South Park first attempted to show Muhammad, the network censored it, claiming it was "because they're religiously tolerant" 

"No you're not," Stone retorted. "You're afraid of getting blown up. That's what you're afraid of. Comedy Central copped to that, you know: 'We're afraid of getting blown up.'"

All of which leads me to this
With metronomic precision each year the national press corps begins running columns by “religion scholars” who wish you to know that Jesus Christ is a fictional character. Mind you, no newspaper of note in the world is brave enough to run a similar story about the Prophet Mohammed.

The latest comes from a “lecturer in religious studies” from Australia named Raphael Lataster. The Washington Post felt compelled to run this so the godless heathens in Washington, D.C. can continue on with no consequence.

According to Mr. Lataster, “There are no existing eyewitness or contemporary accounts of Jesus. All we have are later descriptions of Jesus’ life events by non-eyewitnesses, most of whom are obviously biased.” These biased, non-eyewitness accounts include the writings of the Apostles Matthew, Peter, and John all three of whom were standing near the cross on which the magical mythological Jesus was nailed. They were just, one might suppose, looking in a different direction.   Full "There They Go Again," if you're interested.

I was raised in the buckle of the Bible belt by a Mother that would beat my ass into the car to go to church. I lost my faith due to lying 1970's preachers who had all been Green Berets and the like. I did gain a lifelong interest in the history (the truth) of this Jesus fellow and how this religion came about.

No contemporaries? How about Josephus? Maybe the greatest historian of antiquity. The existence of Jesus or Issa is found in the records of Zorastrian, Hindu, and the Buddhist Monks of Nepal. Writings still exist today where say they are awaiting the arrival of the young healer of Judea, in Nepal. For most of his adult life Jesus is unknown to the Christian Jews. He had to be somewhere. But our full account is supposed to be just by the Christian folks. There is a lot of the story that was buried by the new Romans in Constantinople 300 years after his death. Just my belief.-Anymouse

For me, the historical fact that 11 of 12 Apostles suffered grisly deaths at the hands of the Romans, when any one of them would have been spared by renouncing his account of Jesus's life and deeds they were preaching is persuasive. For beginners.

Yeah there are few scholars that will make that claim since there were plenty of writings from that time that witnessed these things. There were people in the east that spoke of a a similar man that visited them during those "silent years" of Christ in the bible.

Most of these guys write junk like this to get recognized and there are plenty anti-Christians that will applaud without cracking a book on their own.

Why is it that atheists make the best experts on Christianity.
