"Muhammad was a prophet who understood nothing about football"

Unless you find the idea of someone not knowing a lot about football offensive, how on Earth can that phrase upset you? Any reasonable person will see it as a bit of a joke, but of course not the Muslim breed of woo-meisters.

So not only has German football club FC Schalke 04 received angry emails from fundie muppets because of their rather non-risque football chant but has to put up with this:

Police in Gelsenkirchen, in the industrial Ruhr region of western Germany, say they are taking the Muslim complaints very seriously.

The head of Germany's Central Council of Muslims, Aiman Mazyek, said his council would not call for a ban on the anthem, but would like "an explanation of its background".

WHAT??? Grrrr... this is blasphemy, but it's not offensive to sane people. Blasphemy should never be illegal (don't get me started on our own stupid laws...) or open to a police investigation or demands from some unelected special interest group for "an explanation of its background". Why don't you do some research and find out yourself? I'm sure it's not a state secret for Christ's sake!! Oops... more blasphemy.

Worse, what if it was offensive? Is offending someone, as opposed to threatening them, illegal now? Can I no longer mock Scientologists for being silly, silly people? Hmph...

Like, Muhammed, I know nothing about football, however I have now become a fan of Schalke!

I've just read a comment on Press TV by some ignorant gobshite called Mehmed:

"Islamic countries should terminate their diplomatic ties to Germany with immediate effect. I was crying all morning long and had to go home from work because of this incident!"

These nutjobs are completely out of control!

That is insane. Honestly, we live in world with so much shit and he cries over someone saying Muhammad doesn't know anything about football??

Mehmed needs to get his priorities straight.
