“Penitents Compete”…The Game Show!


Eternal Salvation or No Eternal Salvation?

Turkish television Kanal T is launching a game show where a Muslim imam, a Christian Priest, a rabbi and a Buddhist monk try to convert 10 atheists, reports Reuters. Converts win the pilgrimage of their chosen faith: Mecca for Muslims, the Vatican for Christians, Jerusalem for Jews and Tibet for Buddhists.

Honestly, isn’t it enough that faith in God is attacked from every conceivable direction already?
A game show to see which religious faith(which oddly includes the death cult of islam) can convert the most atheists?
Why stop there, why not a game show to see how many Darwinist can be converted to Creationist?
Or how many liberals can be converted to patriots?
Clearly this isn’t a program by and for secularists, but by and for atheists.

In one of those strange convergences of cosmic flatulence, I find myself in agreement with the ‘Religious Affairs Directorate’ of Turkey.

“Doing something like this for the sake of ratings is disrespectful to all religions,” says High Board of Religious Affairs Chairman Hamza Aktan, “Religion should not be a subject for entertainment programs.”

Since I am a Texan, and can’t or won’t ululate in Arabic, I will just say “damn straight!”

  1. First, Islam is not a “death cult”. Secondly, we don’t speak Arabic in Turkey. I’m not surprised that you’re from Texas.

    • Hakan, on the first, I strongly disagree; on the second, granted there is the Turkish language thing, but I’ll bet the imams speak arabic.
      Glad you aren’t surprised.

  2. WTF. Turkish television Kanal T is just making a mockery out of the faiths for ratings purposes. I also agree with N2L.
