Comment from "Lilian Dorn"
An anonymous commenter who goes by "Lilian Dorn" left this comment to my earlier post "No Apologies. Get Used to It." I am posting the comment in its entirety.
A rather thoughful and interesting comment. Certainly different from the usual crap ("please don't insult me it makes me sad") I often get. Make of it what you will.
So what?I'm a Muslim and I don't feel offended by a bunch of pictures. I do
believe as Chirac put it that you should exercise freedom of _expression in a
manner that is respectful of others and their beliefs. This applies to everyone.
As to some of the comments on Muslims.. I've never prayed to have anyone killed because they're not Muslims. I've never ever had to recite any of the stuff someone wrote down here. Well, maybe some people who call themselves Muslims do that, I've never known any but I guess there are idiots, unrespectful and dangerous people everywhere beyond religion or atheism.
A lot of people just don't want to think. It's much more fun to stick standard fashionable anti Muslim stuff on here. It's OK, it's your right to make sense or talk nonsense and mine to let you know before I pass you by. I'm not a masochist either and didn't even look at the pictures you've got on your site, I saw them in the papers. I only checked some of your comments.
Anyway, each to their own. Democracy is for sure lacking in Arabic countries but this goes beyond religion, it's about politics and money. I think you can work it out with a little thinking.
As to education and fun, I have both like anybody else. You must know some really strange Muslims. It's true to say that some so called Islamic Schools are Islamic by name only but they're a minority, like prostitutes in Western countries.
I guess anyone can call themselves anything and there are tedious uneducated Muslims and non Muslims.
But for the time being, your fashion site is what people want. We want Muslim terrorists and we want to show the world that Islam is synonymous for Violence. Might change the trend to Atheist Killers one day or How Atheism is a fallacy that leads to anarchy. Whatever. The Show must go on.
