Harness the power of religion

This may be a few months old, but I only just saw it the other night. Seems like it would work:

My only question is: Where is the other major monotheistic religion?

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.

You don’t even need Islam. You just need for the first monotheistic sect to split, and let the bloodbath begin.

We like to focus on the Abrahamic religions because we’re more familiar with them and they tend to be more relevant to politics.

You should have uploaded the Medieval Sex Ed segment from the show, much more relevant to your blog.

Uhhh this isnt a few years old, this is from the Dimitri Martin show and the show itself only started last summer, so at the most a year old.

If you find this amusing, you are not insolent. You are ignorant.
The prejudice is so deeply ingrained that the authors even acknowledge as factual the self-serving propaganda depicting the same Islam they are mocking as a victim who reacted.

Ha! Cute! Religion kills so many. That’s why I prefer atheists. They are peace loving creatures that would never harm a fly. Just ask Stalin or Chairman Mao.

Hey Alan, in your weak attempt to try to make us think you’re cool, you forgot to do your research. This is a clip from “Important Things with Demetri Martin”, a show that only premiered in February of this year. So unless you worked out the bugs in your time machine, something tells me you DIDN’T see this years ago.

Just so you know for the future, nobody is impressed by people who pretend to be unimpressed with something that they claim has been around for years.

I wonder why this is only about Muslims and Christians. What about the jewish that have carrying out an ethnic cleansing in Palestine, or the Hindus who are an equal participant in the clashes with the muslims there.
