Pat Condell should we listen?
Here is an excerpt on the background of pat condell,you can find more information,as i havent copied and pasted it all..
''Patrick "Pat" Condell (born 1949 or 1950) is an English writer, political commentator, comedian and atheist internet personality. He performed alternative comedy shows during the 1980s and 1990s in the United Kingdom, and won a Time Out Comedy Award in 1991. He was also a regular panellist on BBC Radio 1's "Loose Talk".''
''From early 2007, he began posting short monologues denouncing religion to a number of video sharing websites, consequently receiving numerous death threats. His videos have been featured on many websites, including YouTube and LiveLeak. They have also been published on DVD, and also as a book of video transcripts. As of March 2013, Pat Condell's YouTube channel has over 177,902 subscribers and 44 million video views.
Condell was born in Ireland, and raised in England as a Roman Catholic. He was educated in several different Church of England schools across South London; he said of this time "I found myself segregated in assembly and shunted into another room while everyone said their morning prayers. The whole pantomime seemed hollow to me even then. Once you become aware of the gulf between what people profess to believe and how they actually behave, it’s hard to take any of it seriously." His father was a compulsive gambler working in a betting shop until he was sent to prison for stealing money. He then died of leukaemia. The family was impoverished, moving repeatedly from home to home. Condell left school at 16, and his first job was washing dishes in the revolving restaurant on top of the Post Office tower, now known as the BT Tower in London, for five shillings an hour.
Condell became a vegetarian in 1976 after watching a deer being butchered. Condell did a number of jobs including six years' logging in Canada.''
I find what he has to say honest,given the fact there are so few who have the integrity to speak out against the evil of islam,(apart from the very few we hear about that have recieved fatwas,muslim death threats,including gert wilders,and salman rushdie and wafa sultan)he is very articulate on such issues as islam,and the role of journalists in the media today.
If you look through his previous video uploads on youtube,Pat doesn't shy away from any subject including christianity and the role of the eu in our so called democratic countries.
In his most recent upload he has called for muslims to reject jihad(muslim war).
Although i think Pat is a little naive in thinking that muslims will ever reject jihad as it is a requirement for muslims to do so.
It would be like me asking hitler if he were still alive to reject nazism.
To see some of what Pat has to say just copy and paste this into your search engine or on the top of your blank search page.
