Religious butterflies

Rob Williams of Cairns Tropic Jazz writes in response to Dutch politician, Geert Wilders, who has caused a stir with the release of a movie critical about religious extremism.
  • It wasn’t so long ago that the Catholic Church would not recognise a marriage between a Catholic and a “heathen or non Catholic”.

    If you were not “one of them” your soul would go to Hell or some limbo place forever damned. But over the years things have changed. They don’t read the scriptures in Latin any more because no-one knew what they were saying.

    Australia offers people from all Nationalities and Religions the freedom to adapt and change. Already we have them throwing off their garb to play sports. One Lebanese Fullback is said to be the best in the world.

    One day we might even see a Sikh Indian playing football, even though he may have to create a new head dress to accommodate his turban.

    Australia is fortunate to have people like Kevin Rudd, who for the first time in our history, has taken his friendship into the house of the Chinese President to talk about matters of difference that we have with one another. That, to me, sure beats the hell out of the Bush philosophy which is “do as I say or I’ll send a cluster bomb to explode over you and your family, while I sit here, look stupid, and cost my people Trillions of Dollars.

    Whilst I was having breakfast in my garden yesterday a giant butterfly nearly landed on me. It was a female Queen Alexandra’s Bird wing, said to be the largest butterfly in the world.

    They are rainforest critters and eat a vine that is poisonous thus making it toxic to predators which will get sick if they eat the butterfly.

    I was amazed at the size, it would have been 25 centimetres across. Closely in attendance was the most perfect green male Birdwing I have ever seen. They flew off to find a suitable vine to lay eggs.

    What has that got to do with Wilders, you may ask? Well he, and people like him, consume large amounts of poisonous crap instead of living a real life. Other people who take in this toxic crap soon find that they get sick too.

..and just like some plants, Islam will grow to a sufficient number in it's host society and instill it's own political and religious doctrine until the host has wilted away.

Can you also tell me why this film has not been applauded for pointing out the atrocities committed in the name of Islam and with justification from the Quran and also leading to the deafening silence in worldwide condemnation of Extremist Muslims instead of at Geert himself?

The true poison is Islam until it cleanses itself.
