Skip to comments.Why [Penn Jillette] Won't Call Out Islam or Scientology ("... because we have families.")
Posted on 06/26/2010 1:37:54 PM PDT by KentTrappedInLiberalSeattle
Are there any groups you won't go after?
We haven't tackled Scientology because Showtime doesn't want us to. Maybe they have deals with individual ScientologistsI'm not sure. And we haven't tackled Islam because we have families.
Meaning, you wont attack Islam because youre afraid itll attack back ...
Right, and I think the worst thing you can say about a group in a free society is that youre afraid to talk about itI cant think of anything more horrific. [...]

Yet, we let allow this muslim sub-human culture to spread in this country.
Kent, you obviously don’t ever watch P & T on Showtime. They are ritual apologists for all things libertine and boorish. Apparently, excess has not grown tedious enough for them yet? If you think P & T’s cowardice here’s troublesome, you should watch them surrender to such obviously frivilous triffle’s as pre-marital sex, or illicit drug abuse. Basically, P & T stand for nothing and are worth much less. I feel sorry for them Kent. Wait til they get to answer for the millions of yound people that bye into their nilist philosophy.
Not to sound like an Internet tough guy, but...
I’ve written on Muhammad’s early military campaigns and how the teachings of “Allah” changed radically when Muhammad needed them too. It’s not likely, but any radical Muslim in my vicinity could hear about this (especially since my Rhet & Comp instructor has made it available to students as an example of a highly proficient paper and it’s been posted on the Web) and come whack me or my family. I don’t have the income to hire a bodyguard. But I was willing to put it on the line because it was true, and this false prophet has deceived billions with his 7th Century con game.
Penn & Teller are millionaires. They could hire bodyguards and security experts galore. But they’re afraid to challenge the con game.
Looks like somebody made their balls disappear.
They are not apologists at all. They are Libertarians who believe that the government should stay the hell out of people’s lives. I agree with them.
Incorrect Assessment. I have seen assorted episodes from seasons One through Five, in plain point of fact. Liked some (the ones slamming irrational belief in UFOs, communicating with the dead via ouija board, etc.), disliked others.
Next question...? ;)
Oh, agreed, absolutely. Check my keywords for this article. ;)
I certainly don't blame them for being honest. I have children, and I won't put their lives in danger to take on Muslims either.
IMO, there is a difference between being brave and being stupid.
Libertarian or not, they are cowards. And anyone who attacks the Boy Scouts is a putz short on reason and honor.
Granted. As the invaluable Mr. Silverback has already succinctly observed, however: "Penn & Teller are millionaires. They could hire bodyguards and security experts galore."
As a useful corollary to your own credo, above: there is, likewise, a yawning, cavernous difference between being prudent and craven. If even those blessed with both great wealth and easy, frequent mass media access are so glibly ready to lie down, lamb-like, and meekly submit... then: NO ONE shall willingly stand, ultimately, and we are already lost.
The biggest crime we commit is not speaking out. Silence is suicide. Found this from a Frosty Woolridge site.
Detroit may be one of our best examples of multiculturalism: pure dislike, and total separation from America . He is addressing the death of Detroit.
Today, you hear Muslim calls to worship over the city like a new American Baghdad with hundreds of Islamic mosques in Michigan , paid for by Saudi Arabia oil money. High school flunk out rates reached 76 percent last June, according to NBC’s Brian Williams. Classrooms resemble more foreign countries than America . English? Few speak it! The city features a 50 percent illiteracy rate and growing.
If the guys on South Park are brave enough, why not them?
Are they famous? Yes? Are they millionaires? Yes? Can they afford to secure themselves and their family? Yes.
Somebody made their balls disappear.
What a pussy.
When is anybody going to stand up to these death cultists?
Pray for America
This is a real eye opener to what is happening in America.
However, I cannot disparage someone for simply being honest. He is scared of Muslims attacking his family, and that I can completely understand.
Of course I am thankful for those who are willing to put it all on the line to fight Islam. I know in my heart though that I am one of the many who are just too scared to ever speak up.
I guess I am a coward too, but my posistion has always been that my first responsibility is to protect my children right now, today, and not in some valiant selfless "it's for their future" kind of way.
