Religions - Criticising and satirising religions - Woroni


The "Woroni" controversy

Note that I am a supporter of free speech based in Ireland.
Woroni have nothing to do with this page and probably do not approve of it.

"Woroni" is the student newspaper of the Australian National University, Canberra.
What happened when they decided to run a series slagging off the world's religions sums up what is wrong with Islam, and what is wrong with the West's reaction to Islam.

Mormonism



Woroni Edition 3 of 2013, 7 Mar 2013 - Mormonism.

Islam - And all hell breaks loose

And all hell breaks loose.



Muhammad Taufiq bin Suraidi, a Muslim student from Singapore, demands it be forbidden to criticise Islam at Australian universities.
From Letters to Woroni Edition 6.
Unfortunately, the ANU Chancelry agrees with him.

What a shower. Islamists and Islamic right-wing conservatives. And their western leftist enablers and fellow-travellers.

Who I block: I will debate almost anyone. I love ideas. I will not debate (and will block) people who do the following: (a) Make threats. (b) Accuse me of crimes. (c) Comment on my appearance. (d) Drag in stuff about me not related to the topic. (My professional career, my personal life.) (e) Complain to my employer. Yes, people do all these things.
