Do I dare say anything here? I just opened my mouth on that Islamic RTS news, and got my comment deleted as well as lost a bubble o.O

People take religion too seriously.

i don't understand the outcry about it. it doesn't sound like anything to me, and even if it did, how is that offensive? I'd understand if it said "declare jihad".

The news media needs to focus on something more productive, like, oh, our economy, and how a company we bailed out wants to buy another jet, and a president at one of the companies spent a million to redecorate his office. (thankfully he was fired, and is going to reimburse the money)

Don't you know? Haven't you heard? Islam IS the light.

I can sense the sarcasm
but is it necissary to make fun of my religion every chance one gets? Not talking about you, but just..thats how people in general are these days...it really sucks..

@phosphor112: Cheer up mate, let them make fun of it, in the end it's the christian church who's giving the bad touch to children.
You shouldn't feel awkward with your religion(unless you worship Flying Spaghetti Monster).
If it makes you a better person to others, gives you the feeling of inner comfort, sense of security or it's your sense of life, stick with it. It's all that matter.

The Bible describes 10 cases of incest in detail in one book only
I wonder what moral is behind those stories...
keep your Bible away from children if you are serious about that.

Flying Spaghetti Monster is just as real as any other god.

How dare you question my religion!? Still, I forgive you. May you be touched by his noodly appendage.

best call ever, the person who gave you a thumbs down is obviously putting his hands down little boys pants also, common knowledge - the catholic church is a haven for pedophiles

@Jenzo: I think differently on this topic but opinion is like as*, everyone has own.

i heard the bird was the word

is that true?

I wonder if she'd have complained if the game said "Christ is the saviour".
thetamer  +   2249d ago
No, she's not going to complain about that. But let's think about Moses parting her seas...

Do you think she would complain if she was being told to rub Buddha's belly?

No comment. I can't get into a religious debate on the Internet. Just cause flame wars and no-one thinks about anything that is said.

Almost as if the internet is a religion.

It's a very tricky subject to bring up anywhere. Too many emotions ties in with it.
andron666  +   2249d ago
But this isn't about religion....
It's about paranoid delusional people who think they hear something. Both Mattel and the publisher have stated that the sound is just baby babbling.

Do people really think Mattel and Crave would be spreading "Islamic propaganda" intentionally or even unintentionally? Just listen to the sound, it's readily available on youtube.

It can sound like a number of different things if you try to listen for it. It's just like when people hear song lyrics differently when they don't know them...

people are so paranoid, omfg a man with a beard shoot him, omfg he's got his hands in his pockets..he's got a gun!!!!, everyone burn all the books, the black people are learning,
person 1:" and the children aren't going to church because they heard that our priest is a pedophile...."
person 2:"but he's a preist he'd never touch children....."

all religions teach fear and paranoia...actually so does the media....point is, this lady is crazy
Tony P  +   2249d ago
It was an ok post till you made a blanket statement about all religions like that at the end.

As for the article, obviously some people should have something better to do than probe a game for hidden secrets in baby babble.
Strikepackage Bravo  +   2249d ago
Dude, what did you just say?

All I understood was "all religions teach fear and paranoia", and that is a lie.

Do people even think before they type sh%t around here?

Maybe you should actually learn something about a few religions before make a blanket ignorant statement like that.
AndyA  +   2249d ago
Hmm let's see... "a blanket ignorant statement." Sounds familiar. Oh yeah:

"Explain why so many muslims are so violent and bloodthirsty.

Why are they committing genocide in Africa, why muslims want all Jews dead, and explain why women are treated like prisoners in their society."
devilhunterx  +   2249d ago
Africa isnt a country. Not all Muslims want Jews dead and women arent treated like prisoners in their society.

I just got to know, do you even know who your dad is? How young was your mom when she was knocked up? Did the priest touch you every sunday school?

Hey its easy to stereotype and believe everything what the media says.
radzy  +   2249d ago
another sign is given to the disbelievers. but little do ye take notice.from a mouth of a 5 year old baby babbling along, the truth comes out.
ISLAM is the ""LIGHT""

in the holy quran it says "and which signs of your lord do you deny"

check this other miracle and sign out in australia where i live
"praying tree"

"and which signs of your lord do you deny !!!!!!!"
