"Are you are extremists?"
"No, of course not!"
"Do you believe in killing and stoning if Allah says to do it?"
"I... guess so."
"Everybody! So, I will ask again. Are you extremists?"
"...wait, which way are you taking this?"
I especially like homeboy in the bottom-right of the first crowd shot, who I assume isn't Muslim. I would love to pick his brain about what it was like to sit there through that.
Jared Diamond's response might go something like this:
The arabian peninsula wasn't centralized 600 years later than the west. he would probably trace this back to the mineral content of the soil.
"So what's the media gonna say now? That we're ALL extremists? That we're ALL radicals? That they need to deport ALL OF US from this country?"
Uh, yeah. Yep. Hit the nail on the head there. Couldn't agree more.
I know right? You guys are in Norway, idiots. It's not like it would be hard.
Religion gives us so many amazing synonyms for "stupid."
I would flip that. There are many "players" that are good people, despite their religion, but the "game" has always been faith based stupid.
Maybe religion is actually nothing. Perhaps humans would behave exactly the same way without it, making religion just another label to slap onto it. If every religion has every kind of person behaving every kind of way, just like secular society, the religion isn't actually functional. So maybe the problem with religion is, like God, it doesn't exist, but atheists believe in religion, and ascribe to it the ills of the world.

why do their beards always look like elongated pubes
Feral beards always look like that. A sign of civilization is being able to grow a Commander Riker.

This is horrible. But, these people are NOT representatives of Islam. They clearly took a bunch of time to go to a conference and listen to these Shaykhs, which I'm sure most Muslims would not have. Also, I would hate to be the one person not raising their hand, so maybe some of them just did it to go with the crowd. It isn't like a unanimous ballot or something.
Still, if even one person agrees with those fuckers, that's pretty terrible in itself.
