Did you hear the one about the two atheists and a Muslim? The two atheists go to a Mechanicsburg Halloween Parade and one is dressed as a Zombie Pope and the other is dressed as a Zombie Mohammed. Along comes a humorless Muslim man, he grabs the atheist Mohammed, spins him around and tries to choke him.
Are you laughing yet?
Everybody called the police and the Sgt. explained that the atheist had the right to dress as a zombie anything.
Don’t worry, the jokes coming. Keep in mind that it was HALLOWEEN!
Here it comes –
Muslim Talaag Elbayomy was charged with harassment, but District Judge Mark Martin threw it out after criticizing Ernie Perce, the victim, and even calling him a “doofus.” [APPARENTLY IF YOU ARE A DOOFUS, YOU DON’T GET TO KEEP YOUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS!] Martin then explained that the atheist could have been executed if he did that in some societies. [IN WHAT COURT IN AMERICA SHOULD THAT COMMENT MAKE ANY SENSE?]
R. Mark Thomas represented Elbayomy and applauded the judge. “I think this was a good dressing down by the judge,” he said. “The so-called victim was the antagonist and we introduced evidence that clearly showed his attitude toward Muslims. The judge didn’t do anything I wouldn’t have done if I was in that position.”
Judge Martin threw out video evidence of the assault, dismissed the testimony of an eyewitness officer, and then lectured the atheist victim about the sensitivities of the Muslim culture. He stated in court that Elbayomy was obligated to attack the victim because of his culture and religion.
Here is the judge’s statement on the death penalty for the Atheist’s insult,
“Having had the benefit of having spent over 2 and a half years in predominantly Muslim countries I think I know a little bit about the faith of Islam. In fact I have a copy of the Koran here and I challenge you sir to show me where it says in the Koran that Mohammad arose and walked among the dead. I think you misinterpreted things. Before you start mocking someone else’s religion you may want to find out a little bit more about it it makes you look like a dufus and Mr. (Defendant) is correct. In many Arabic speaking countries something like this is definitely against the law there. In their society in fact it can be punishable by death and it frequently is in their society.
Judge Martin then said the following about Islam,
“Islam is not just a religion, it’s their culture, their culture. It’s their very essence their very being. They pray five times a day towards Mecca to be a good Muslim, before you die you have to make a pilgrimage to Mecca unless you are otherwise told you can not because you are too ill too elderly, whatever but you must make the attempt. Their greetings wa-laikum as-Salâm (is answered by voice) may god be with you. Whenever, it’s very common when speaking to each other it’s very common for them to say uh this will happen it’s it they are so immersed in it.
Judge Martin seems to ignore the 1st Amendment here (and everywhere),
“Then what you have done is you have completely trashed their essence, their being. They find it very very very offensive. I’m a Muslim, I find it offensive. But you have that right, but you’re way outside your boundaries or first amendment rights. This is what, and I said I spent about 7 and a half years living in other countries. when we go to other countries it’s not uncommon for people to refer to us as ugly Americans this is why we are referred to as ugly Americans, because we are so concerned about our own rights we don’t care about other people’s rights as long as we get our say but we don’t care about the other people’s say”
The judge threw out all the evidence, such as the video evidence, and then ruled there wasn’t enough evidence.
“All that aside I’ve got here basically.. I don’t want to say he said she said but I’ve got two sides of the story that are in conflict with each other.”
Can you believe this? Physical assault is allowed if a Muslim is insulted??? We live under Shariah Law I guess, at least Central Pennsylvania does.
That’s not the real joke though. The real joke is that the atheist is allowed to disparage the Pope and the Catholic religion but not the Muslim religion. Maybe the Catholics should start walking around with machetes to get some respect (I’m kidding). Read here: ABC News:
I’m not in agreement with how the Atheists paraded around but they didn’t put elephant dung or ants on a religious painting so I think they were only barely rude.
Court case with doofus of an anti-1st Amendment judge –
Choking caught on video, good thing the Muslim didn’t have a weapon on him –
