Check this out ... another fun day multicultural style.
I'm not familiar with this singer, and I'm guessing that this isn't necessarily a major loss, but it's the principle of the thing, and this kind of story really rubs me the wrong way. Apparently, a Danish popstrel gets hassle from immigrants because she uses the stage name Medina. During a free concert she gave recently she was pelted with eggs (!!) by a gang of 'new Danes' who felt 'offended' by her use of this so-called sacred name. (News flash: the concept of sacredness only exists in your heads.) WTF is that? I totally agree with the singer's assessment - those guys are fucked up and their parents ought to be ashamed of themselves.
But that isn't really the point of this post. What is even more interesting is the reaction of some 'Muslim spokespeople' to this event. A very predictable reaction. Namely, that these kids aren't really Muslims. Because, don't you know, if they were real Muslims, they wouldn't have been at a concert where alcohol is served and a scantily clad girl sings about stripping. OMG lulz!!
No true Scotsman, indeed. The use of this fallacy really shows how religion damages the mind. Do these people really think so little that they actually can't spot the glaringly obvious flaw in their own argument? If every single person who some other Muslim would call 'not a real Muslim' actually wasn't a Muslim, there would in fact be no Muslims. Hmmm ...
