Before I say what the stink is, I want members to see if they "get" it. Because I do think this guy was taking a pot-shot, albiet a well deserved on.

If you're stumped, consider whether there's any religious criticism going on here.

The crescent moon has been a symbol of Islam for hundreds thousands of years...As I recall, Green was the favored color of the crescent moon/the flags it may fly on, but I could be mistaken.

Well, considering it was published the day after a bombing in Saudi, I saw it as an jab at "Islam"

The CAIR folks have their panties in a wad too, free speech notwithstanding.

You were right the first time. It is a POST CHRIST religion. That means under 2000 years. Not sure of the exact date, but I think its 500ad or so.

The man who does that cartoon is a Christian. I saw an artical about him years ago. He often vents about hipocracy, & anti God ideas therough B.C. Kinda of ironic given the name of the cartoon huh?

I would have to agree 100% with what he's saying in this one, but some folks(non of us)Will just never be able to figure out why Sheite stinks.Kinda like where there is stink, there is shite.

So whats the stink ?
Freedom of speech , freedom of the press, and freedom of religon are still intact.

<­BR>

Aren't they?

Cartoon Raises a Stink
Some See Slur Against Islam in a 'B.C.' Outhouse Strip

In the past, Hart has gotten into trouble for religious-themed strips -- most notably on one recent Easter Sunday when his strip showed the seven candles of a Jewish menorah being extinguished, one by one, with each image accompanied by one of Jesus Christ's last utterances. As the last flame disappeared, and the words "It is finished" appeared, the menorah became a cross.

Many Jewish readers were outraged, claiming Hart was making the argument that Christianity had extinguished Judaism as a "better" religion. Hart denied it, protesting that the cartoon was intended to honor both religions. To many, his explanation seemed hollow.





Outraged by that? That's insane! The fact that Jesus was born Jewish (from the house of David) and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice, thus establishing a new covenant with God, is a fundamental tenet of every Christian denomination. It is taught every week in countless thousands of churches throughout the world. And they get upset because it is procalimed in a comic strip? Sheesh!

Could be one branch is Shi'ite.....(do the math there...)


Could also be, well, it's a collection point for waste.

But, hey, I'm no professional at the intrepretation of another person's thoughts...

Even if you don't think the Islamic symbol reference was intentional, there's still a comment there regarding people.

Most people think their own shit doesn't stink. Well, it does.

That would be the most obvious non-religious interpretation.

This gives me a great idea: I'm going to start painting the bowls of toilets with the Islamic crescent moon, in utterly water-and-chemical proof DuPont Imron paint, in bright green.

Be patriotic! Buy one of these toilets, and when you have to take a shit, shit on Islam!

I'm sure I could sell a shitload, pardon the pun.


The problem is that it wouldn't be fair. Not all Islamics are terrorists, and not all terrorists are Islamic. Just enough to forge a bad stereotype.

I'd STILL sell a lot of paintjobs...and be the subject of my very own fatwa, too!

Why, yes! Islam does stink. WTF is the problem here?

That's some deep shit.

i have been reading Johnny Harts cartoons ever since they appeared in comic strips, & he has used crescent moons long before those A-Rabs attacked us on Sept. 11, 2001

those damn muslims just want to whine as do the scumsucking liberals....!!!
Link Posted: 11/22/2003 4:18:46 AM EDT
The The Council on American-Islamic Relations is actually a front for insensitive culturally ignorant asshats that thinkby being offended they will generate sympathy and money.

They only shows their own ignorance of, and their bias against american cultural history. They should be sent back to some muslim shithole and left to rot.

Cresents have been on outt houses for a hundred years in America so I think they are trying to hijack an American symbol.

I doubt there are many outhouses left in the hills of KY & TN. However, I would strongly suggest unless the moslems have a death wish they refrain from playing moslems and hillbillys!!



If I was from TN or KY I would demand an apology from CAIR for Islam defaming my character.
Link Posted: 11/22/2003 6:13:24 PM EDT
Thats the stupidest thing I ever heard, a moon on a shit house door is pretty common, look for pics of an outhouse over the last 75 years.

For a nasty Islamic hate group to be offended is not suprising. They can use it as an excuse to kill some helpless guy driving down the street.
