Thanks to Ophelia Benson for the link.
I am so confused.
Which one is Jesus? Which one is Mohamed? Who is the third dude?
Who is speaking in the upper right panel where the balloon points to the bottom of the panel? The bartender? Again in the lower right panel.
Is the bartender Buddha? Zeus? Zoroaster? Moses? Jeb Bush?
What are they drinking? Inquiring minds want to know.
How arrogant it is for you to expect to understand…
I’m going with Abraham?
First square, left to right: Jesus, Moses, Mohammed. Bargirl is an atheist.
Brilliant comic, both in general and this particular strip.
I’m the barmaid.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob.
Oh, and Jesus and Mo are (of course) regulars while Moses drops by now and then. The barmaid is a regular but she’s not in every strip. Moses is…off on his travels much of the time. It’s always a pleasure to see him; those mad staring eyes are so inspiring.
I’m with the Neocon anti accommodationists.
I have to say, that’s pretty funny.
Also, I wonder how many muslims are offended by the fact that Mohammed is drawn there. Anyone aware of any death threats?
That’s Miller on the left and Ruse in the middle. Are there any Islamic accommodationists?
Are there any Islamic accommodationists?
Accomodation does not appear to be allowed in Islam, it require total subjugation.
The consensus opinion of Muslim scholars justifies the imposition of tribute on non-Muslims who fall under the Muslim rule in terms of Sura 9:29 of the Qur’an. The verse reads: “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold forbidden that which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
From the true believer’s perspective, accomodation is watered-down faith.
The problem is clearly the notion that faith is useful for anything other than manipulating people.
