This picture, tweeted by Joel Tozer and forwarded by Richard Dawkins, was taken at a demonstration in Hyde Park, Sydney, Australia, protesting the anti-Islamic film “Innocence of Muslims.” More on that movie later.
Dawkins has taken flak for characterizing religious indoctrination of children as “child abuse.” Well, look at this picture and deny it. True, it’s not the same as beating or sexually molesting one’s child, but the brain of this boy is being warped and twisted by vicious Muslim ideology. What hope does he have when he grows up?
This also shows how crazy it is to characterize Islam as “the religion of peace.”
Somehow—and this will never happen, of course—it should be illegal to indoctrinate children with religious belief.
According to news.com.au:
The protest – which follows riots around the world – started at about midday when about 100 people – including women and babies – gathered at Town Hall, marched through Hyde Park and along to Phillip Street, chanting, “Down, down USA” for almost three hours. . .
Protesters, including children, held signs saying, “Behead all those who insult the prophet” and “Obama Obama, we love Osama”, and threw objects from construction sites and water bottles at police officers.
Police responded by spraying capsicum spray into the crowd.
Speaking to those gathered, one protester said: “The person who made this video, we want him held responsible.
“And we send a message to the guard pigs [police] … we want our brothers back.”
