Thanks, Jacob Murphy, At Least It's Not A Death Threat!

Many of you, my fellow Purgatorians, remember this meme.

I did a variety of other memes from my burning of The God Delusion, and this one got shared recently by a gaggle of sites, and that's great. Most atheists get what I'm saying. Most atheists look at this, and understand that this little pic exemplifies the gulf between the atheist community from those wacky fundamentalists of any religion who are willing to beat or kill someone who exercises their right to free speech in a way that offends their delicate sensibilities.

However, Jacob Murphy is not one of the reasonable, godless majority as evidenced by his comment on God of the Week.

I just want to add that no one on the thread told Jacob Murphy to place his rage back in his pants either. 

What's even funnier is that when you to his facebook page, he has this quote, Anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices. - Voltaire

Really. I'm not making this up.

I just want to add that I have never, ever gotten a threat from a Muslim, and I have not been gentle to Islam as evidenced in this meme from the Terry Jones' decision to burn the Qur'an a while back.

Or this one.

You can suck my satire.

This is Purgatory. 


  1. Buddy, you are the "eye" in satire...I actually don't know what that means. Awesome don't die-n-shit,


  2. I also abhor book-burning but I oppose persecution of people whatever their beliefs or non-beliefs even more. Besides, the "Burned The God Delusion" poster is so succinct, I wish I knew how to post it to my Facebook page.

  3. Besides being a possible sociopath, Jacob also seems to have apostrophe issues. "It's" is short for "it is." Got it, Jakie?

    As a writer and book-lover, the sight of a burning book makes me cringe too, no matter what the title (with the possible exception of "Mein Kampf"). Doesn't justify kneecapping threats, though.

  4. ... is not one of the of the reasonable godless majority

    Is this what we call the godless delusion

  5. "A book just by itself, as a book, can be burned, updated or critiqued, but by becoming a symbol that book became more than just a book; when it burns, the symbol lives on to inspire others." (with apologies to Bruce Wayne)

  6. I note that among the lost books from airport and airline recovered baggage there seems to be an inordinate amount of Korans, Bibles, Books of Mormon and Torahs etc. Now how does that equate to the believers assertion that these books are holy? Here's another question is every holy book sold or is there a Holy Book pulping industry somewhere? T.
