The Legend Returns
End the oppression

Those moderate Indonesians

An Indonesian woman who doctors say should receive psychiatric treatment was acquitted Wednesday of blasphemy charges for taking a dog into a mosque.

What's so hard about telling the woman to take her dog and leave? Nope, not good enough. The Muslims had to pressure the cops. A conviction would have meant five years in jail. Terrorists with AK-47s who rob banks don't spend that much time in jail in Europe!

Amnesty International said the case was "unfortunate and absurd."

Yup. Unfortunately, this is not unexpected because in Indonesia one can be thrown behind bars for complaining about noise.

In 2018, a court in Sumatra sentenced a woman who complained about the volume of a mosque's loudspeakers to 18 months in prison for blasphemy. She was released on parole in May.

Oh, the loud, blaring, out-of-sync azaan noises from various mosques woke you up at 3:15 a.m. and now you're complaining about it!?! You go to jail.
