Blood and Bullshit

4 Dec

WARNING: If you are more offended by the marking up of a book than by the contents and commandments of genocide, rape, and torture contained within, proceed no further.

A few days ago I happened upon a wonderful gem: a rubber BULLSHIT stamp. Once I discovered said stamp I quickly went out, bought a red ink pad, and began testing it out. I decided to test it out by applying it to some of the texts most deserving of it’s seal off approval. (Click pics to enlarge)

Later that evening I hit upon another idea to illustrate the bloody nature of the bible and the koran, but unfortunately I didn’t have any professional fake blood. (I missed my chance to stock up on Halloween) I tried to cook up my own, but unfortunately it ended up looking a more like jam than blood. I guess I’ll have to get some professional fake stuff and do it over again. In the mean time, here is how they came out: (again, click to enlarge)

Lastly, just a prototype of something I thought up last night, religion as “Just a bandage.”

I feel it is important to preemptively conclude with a note about respect for religion and books some believe to be holy. No beliefs deserve automatic respect, no matter how intensely a believer values them. I personally find the edicts, theologies, stances on women, homosexuals, slavery, etc contained within these books to be abhorrent. I am exercising my free speech by branding these books as bullshit. Furthermore, I will not be burning these books. While I see no problem marking up my copies of these books, burning them historically implies that I wish to burn the people associated with these books. Nothing could be farther from the truth. I do respect the rights of those individuals to believe in these books, even if I find the books to be repulsive. When I am finished with these books I will bury them and plant flowers on top so something beautiful can grow from the ugliness contained within.

May 20th, Draw Muhammad

20 May

May 2oth is Draw Muhammad Day! Will you stand up and exercise your freedom of speech? Or will you cower in the shadows and allow barbaric fanatics to take away you inalienable rights? Do you have the courage to do what is right?
