Cracked.com, a humor website, has an article up titled 5 Ridiculous Things You Probably Believe About Islam in which they list a few common misconceptions about Islam and debunk them for the people who believe them and can’t seem to wrap their heads around the fact that they aren’t true. Before I clicked on the article, I assumed it was going to be a jokey type of article that maybe would try too hard to be funny (it’s on a site called Cracked.com, y’know?) but instead, it stays on point.
Here’s the list of the myths from the article:
5. If You’re a Muslim Woman, You Have to Wear the Veil
4. Our Founding Fathers Would Never Have Tolerated This Muslim Nonsense!
3. “Muslim” Equals “Arab”
2. Western Cultures Are Far More Humane Than the Bloodthirsty Muslims
1. Islam Is Stuck in the Dark Ages
The cool thing is that the Cracked.com writer uses accessible language and also includes pictures in the article for those of us who need some visuals because, frankly, having just text to get one’s point across will result in headaches.
One that I should add is that for some reason, some people think we worship the moon. I DON’T KNOW WHY THAT IS. Granted, the moon is cool and shiny, and awe-inspiring, and doing that cool orbiting thing, has like, a dark side and stuff, and… OH WOW THE MOOOON! No wait, sorry, I’m losing my point here. Which is, just say no to drugs kids. Or… something like that.
Muah! Goodnight everybody!
