They are mocking the world's largest religion to show that they are sophisticated anti-establishment types who want to question religion. I get that. (Trite, but I get it.) Just out of curiosity: will they launch a similar page mocking some key aspect of Islam? Or perhaps they only pick on people whom they expect will not retaliate - except by ethical, non-violent means? (Sort of like a scrappy kennel puppy who barks at larger dogs passing by because he feels safe within his crate...)

Actually, not only does the page regularly mock Islam, but there has also been several pages made mocking Islam as well. So yeah, you're an idiot.

How disingenuousn, Lucy! You are comparing a headline to fine print. The title of the page is not even remotely equal in stature, impact or message to any particular comments contained in the many discussion threads within the page. You are equating the whole to a subset. So tell me: who is the real idiot?

Nothing is beyond mockery, not even gods. Get used to it or get off the net.

So, Pep: what you are saying is that if I find something objectionable, I do not have the right to speak out against it and use reason to convince others freely to change their opinion and/or behavior? In other words, if Group A enters the public sphere and speaks its mind then I am not free to do likewise?

Just out of curiosity, would you take the same approach of ignoring a Facebook page which you find denegrating and discriminarory towards gay people? A page which mocks President Obama - e.g. "The Food Stamp President?" A page by an overtly racist group (e.g. some white supremacist movement)? Or do your magnanimity and spirt of tolerance pertain only to things which you yourself do not find objectionable?

Pep - I would also like to point out another irony. You are lambasting us for speaking out against something on the Internet. Why don't you follow your own advice and just ignore us the same way you say we should ignore this page? Or do you have one set of rules for yourself but another for everyone else? Perhaps you are the one who should "get off the net!"

No, I couldn't care less, as i said nothing is beyond ridicule. Also I'm Australian, and am therefore hardwired to not really give a shit about hatred, I've seen dozens of petitions that just like this one... go nowhere, because they are whining, which is yes, perfectly okay and you are free to do it, but trying to stop people who might get a kick out of it from doing so is also a violation of free speech, and I really like free speech, okay?

Ofcourse you do, It's just that on this internet you should prepare to be disappointed again and again of just how much people dont give a shit about your petty problems. Oh man, it's a bit of mockery, who cares? Australians get bashed for fucking roos and drinking piss all the time, but I embrace those stereotypes, I don't try to get them banned.

It would be an insult to ignore these idiots, it's like they heard some red peppered-up douche was handing out asses and they'd known nothing but years of bitter ass famine. I am exploiting their zealotry and idiocy for my enjoyment, it's not an act of begrudging obligation to hand a bunch of whiny shitlords some logic candy, it's a pleasurable stroll through backwards aisle.

Some haters actually come here to annoy us for defending ourselves against sectarian bigoted hatred. They must support that facebook hate page too. Sad, tunnel visioned people with hatred in their hearts and not much between their ears.

You're not defending yourself, there is no attack in the first place.

Again, this is your zealotry causing your mind to suppress the meaning of humor or jokes, as it were. I've never visited the page but I can already be certain it's meant entirely for satiric humor or humor of some sort. Beside, it's not like you can really talk, weren't you the same religious types who prosecuted gays and black people for centuries? Yeah you fucking dweeb that's what I thought.

"Please even if you do not believe in God, respect those that do!" Why should I respect your beliefs when you can't respect mine? You're anti-free speech, and that does not earn you any respect.

You are not suppose to respect our belief Sarah. You are suppose to respect us as a person. The page is disgusting no matter what you say. Pages like that shouldn't exist.

You know compared to slaughtering thousands for being different, you have NO RIGHT to say this.

These pages exist because religious believers try to force their views on others at every opportunity. Is the page title in bad taste? Absolutely. That doesn't mean that it should be shut down. Just as you have the right to express your beliefs, non-believers have the right to express their belief that basing your life on two thousand year old stories with no supporting evidence (and there has been no historical or archeological evidence found) is wrong. If your faith can't handle this page, it must not be very strong.

Christians should mind their own business. However, if the Crusades have taught us anything is that this is impossible. I would like one solid reason why this page should be banned. No one will be able to give one, just like how there is not a single reason to ban gay marriage.

If you do not like the content of a page, do not go to that page. There, was that so hard

Of course everyone has the right to free speech. But surely people should at least try not to say things intended just to hurt others...What other possible motivation do they have??

Not signing.....this falls under Freedom Of Speech....that's why you CAN HAVE a Petition to begin with, BECAUSE of Freedom of Speech and why don't we throw in there Freedom Of Religion while we're at it...whether you HAVE a religion or NOT you have the RIGHT to EXPRESS it. Sorry, not signing this......
