Founder of the the Islamic State of Iran: There is No Fun in Islam

Don't laugh

The following quotation from the late Ayatollah Khomeini is well-known to Islamophobes, but it bears repeating (the link contains the source).

We are told that just 1% (or whatever) of all Muslims are "extremists". Most Muslims are peaceful, freedom loving, baby-tickeling folks just like us. If they have extreme opinions it's in the same proportion as those Christians who believe God hates Fags, etc.

This, of course, is utter bollocks.

Do a poll and find out how many, say, Pakistanis think that apostates from Islam (or people who slander the Prophet or commit homosexual acts or frolic with Jews or whatever) should be executed. Hint: It's closer to 99% than 1%.

So here's a quote from the founder of the Islamic State of Iran--sort of the Iranian equivalent of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King and Ronald Reagan all rolled together...with a pointy beard:
Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious. Islam does not allow swimming in the sea and is opposed to radio and television serials. Islam, however, allows marksmanship, horseback riding and competition ...
Well, thank Allah that marksmanship is still permitted.

Now, Khomeini was a cagey one. He wrote poems about wine. No doubt that was during his Rumspringa.

But did you ever wonder why so many Muslims want to engage in suicide attacks?

What do they have to lose?

    1. I guess there is fun in Islam, after all.
