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.





Catholicism



Woroni Edition 1 of 2013 - Catholicism.
People laugh. No one complains.




Scientology



Woroni Edition 2 of 2013, 22 Feb 2013 - Scientology.
People laugh. No one complains.




Mormonism



Woroni Edition 3 of 2013, 7 Mar 2013 - Mormonism.
People laugh. No one complains.




Judaism



Woroni Edition 4 of 2013, 24 March 2013 - Judaism.
People laugh. No one complains.




Islam - And all hell breaks loose



Woroni Edition 5 of 2013, 18 Apr 2013 - Islam.
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.

Blocked on Twitter: I am blocked on Twitter by Sarah Abdallah and Ali Abunimah and Nadeem Ahmed and Lexi Alexander and Umar Al-Qadri and Mo Ansar and Frankie Boyle and Brendan Ciaran Browne and broadsheet.ie and CAGE and Allan Cavanagh and Tom Clonan and the Clonskeagh mosque and Stanley Cohen and Juan Cole and Ruth Coppinger TD and John Cusack and Cllr. Paul Donnelly and Alaa Abd El-Fattah and Joyce Fegan and Mary Fitzgerald and Tara Flynn and Clementine Ford and George Galloway MP and Roxane Gay and Harry's Last Stand and the IPSC and Charles Johnson and Owen Jones and Joanna Kiernan and Andy Kindler and Carlos Latuff and Frank McDonald and Rob McDowall and Ruairí McKiernan and Philip Nolan and Colm O'Gorman and Donal O'Keeffe and Aziz Poonawalla and Angela Rayner MP and Mubin Shaikh and David Sheen and Richard Silverstein and Mark Sleboda and Jonathan Sugarman and Vian Tahir and Ronan Tynan and Cllr. Matt Waine and Mick Wallace TD and Ben White and Sarah Wilkinson and Asa Winstanley. What a shower. The reactionary part of the Islamic world, and their western allies, the regressive left.

Who I block on Twitter: I will debate almost anyone. I love ideas. I will not debate (and will block) people who: (a) target my job, (b) target my appearance, or: (c) libel me. Also, since 2016, abusive reporting has become a thing. I was targeted with abusive reporting by an Israel-hater pretending to be "Jewish". So I now also block: (d) any account that even hints that it reports its enemies, and: (e) any Israel-hater that claims to be Jewish. It is just self-defence.
