Iraqi youth killed for being emo

[ Edited ]

My first gut reaction was to laugh, then I saw the pics & realized this #### is real. And it makes me wonder if "democracy" will really change these ppl. The religious fanatics are as alive as ever.

in all fairness, if it was ok to do that in this country because no one would stop you from killing annoying people, I'd probably be doing it too.

Thought the headline was fake. It is the DM....

 

The religious POLICE did this....the Iraqi govt. did this to their own ppl, these aren't criminals doing this to these kids, the govt did it to themselves. I thought it was a spoof headline but its real.

It...shouldn't matter. Laughing at the loss of life, even figuratively, because of religious persecution is disgusting...

And how would he even think it's a spoof? I mean, The Daily Mail is a tabloid newspaper and I don't exactly consider it reputable, but it doesn't make spoofs.....at least not to my knowledge.

It's sad, but not surprising.

No matter how much Western influence you bomb into a country, it's still the Middle East, being different will get you humiliated and killed.

What a sad and pathetic part of the world.

And that goes into the list of why my feelings of antitheism is growing.

That is some backwards, bronze age stupidity. It is also why theocracy shoukd be opposed in any form.

This news makes me emo. Gotta wonder how following a fashion statement like this can be a sign of Satanic worship let alone a criminal offense, but then again with a bat #### government, it seems more like a revolt against any western influences and they would've murdered a guy for just wearing blue jeans.

50 years ago Americans were lynching black people solely because of the color of their skin (it still occasionally happens but not on the same scale or with the same acceptance). We had had democracy for over 150 years at that point. Different forms of government aren't to blame, people are. The fact that this even made news is noteworthy of change in their country.

Governments have been beating on their own citizens for quite a while.

 

It should not be a shock.

Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward. Whoever cannot take care of himself without police protection is both. It is as cowardly to betray an offender to justice, even though his offences be against yourself, as it is not to avenge an injury by violence. It is dastardly and contemptible in a wounded man to betray the name of his assailant, because if he recovers, he must naturally expect to take vengeance himself.

"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."

I laughed when I read the thread title. I too am a terrible person.
She kicked and wailed, the maid so fair
but he licked the honey from her hair.
Then she sighed and squealed and kicked the air
she sang: My bear so fair!
And off they went, the bear
the bear and the maiden fair!

In Indonesia, the government is rounding up punk rockers and putting them in re-education camps.

 

It's just another form of opression in the name of Shiria Law.

I think it's important that we not fight hate with more hate.  Believe me, it took me longer than it should have to learn that lesson.

Music also plays a critical role, Emos like guitar-based rock with emotional lyrics – bands such as My Chemical Romance, Jimmy Eat World, and Dashboard Confessional are particular favourites.

I don't hate the religious, that's just silly. I don't even hate religion. But I am growing to be against it, in a more direct manner. Religion legitimizes and positively sanctions acts like this. It isn't the only cause, but it is a major one.

But really, religion is just a symptom of a larger problem.

I think what's more important is that the head cleric actually condemned the killings. They have a long way to go, but it sounds to me that they do take extremism seriously.
