Quote# 123166

Saudi Arabia is launching a programme to “inoculate” children against Westernisation, atheism, liberalism and secularism.

They were listed as threats to “ideological security”, ahead of the danger from extremist groups including Isis and al-Qaeda and sectarianism.

And they can't even see the irony in the fact that it's not Western liberal atheists who are causing all the trouble in the Middle East.

ISIS & Al-Qaeda are as anti-Atheism as you, o Wahhabi clerics.

Thinking - the basis of Atheism - not your strong suit, eh?

Your loss, Jordan & UAE's gain, I guess. [/post-Amin Uganda]

Atheism, liberalism and secularism, eh? Sounds an awful lot like what fundies over in the dreaded West rail against. There really is no fundamental difference between these people.

Please. I highly doubt what the Saudi rulers think "westernization, atheism, liberalism and secularism" is has any relation to the actually reality. Especially since the royal family will continue to benefit greatly with their relations with the West, no matter what they say to their own citizens.

Fine. And the atheists promise not to launch any more missiles against you.

Can we go now?

Well they are more dangerous then groups like ISIS. Atheism and secularism isn't a threat to the mortal body but the immortal soul and to their belief system and that makes it a greater threat.

This is just pathetic. Is their faith so weak that any exposure to "Westernisation, atheism, liberalism and secularism" will shatter it? If it can't stand on its own merits against contrary ideas without silencing them first, then it's not worth holding in the first place.

Of course they were. Why would they put themselves and their kin at the top of the list?

I can't decide if this is funny or stupid.
