Atheist Monument Builder Says Muslim ‘Pedophile Prophets,’ Satanist, Scientology Statues Are Next

Atheist Monument Builder: Muslim 'Pedophile Prophets,' Satanist, Scientology Statues Are Next

The atheist monument builder Dave Silverman claims that Muslim “pedophile prophets” monuments are next.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the atheist monument has created a lot of controversy.

American Atheists, the group that built the atheist monument in Florida, has made it quite clear they built the monument solely as an attack on the Ten Commandments monument built in the same area. Dave Silverman says that if the Ten Commandments monument is removed they’ll take down the atheist monument as well. But in the meantime, American Atheists is planning on building atheist monuments throughout the United States using $500,000 from anonymous donors.

Ken Weaver, member of the Community Men’s Fellowship group which built the Ten Commandments monument, is actually fairly supportive of the atheist monument bench:

“Simply put, while we do not agree with the ‘faith’ of the American Atheists that disregards the existence of God, we do believe in their right to freely express their beliefs. As long as their display meets the requirements of our county ordinance, they have the same freedoms of expression as those of any other citizen or group.”

Dave Silverman agrees. Citing the possibility of Satanist, Scientology, and Muslim monuments alongside the atheist monument, Dave Silverman says that as a fellow “religious minority” American Atheists “will support those religious minorities because they have every right to do it. This is what you get from a free speech zone. You get free speech.”

But Mr. Silverman apparently felt led to insult Muslims by saying they’d build a “pedophile prophets” monument:

“So if the Christians are allowed to put up the 10 Commandments and we’re allowed to put up a monument to secularism and the separation of church and state, yes the Muslims should be allowed to put up a monument to pedophile prophets and yes, the yes, a Scientologist. Yes, they should all be allowed to put up whatever they want because this is a free speech zone.”

By saying “pedophile prophets” Dave Silverman was referring to Islam’s prophet Muhammed, who took a bride that was seven years old only to wait until age nine before consummating the marriage. But Christians might feel insulted, as well. The Jews and Christians of ancient times considered the age of marriage to be 12 for girls and 13 for boys, although the Biblical legal age for adulthood was age 20. They used puberty as the baseline and even today in modern times some countries consider pedophilia to be relevant only when the situation involves pre-pubescent children.

What do you think about atheist monument builder Dave Silverman saying we might soon see Satanist, Scientology, and Muslim monuments in American public places?

    That would be because Mohammed was by modern standards in most countries a paedophile.

    and that will teach me to read the whole story before commenting. Also, christians too although aside from "suffer the little children to come un to me" there is no mention of Jesus taking a 12 year old bride or even being sexually active, if of course he existed.

    This is why we can't have nice things. The proper thing to do (per the First Amendment) is to firmly state that church and state are separate and "ne'er the twain shall meet". If that philosophy had been followed, the 10 commandments display would never have been approved and this controversy would not exist. Since some government organizations do not have the spine to stand up to the religious bullies and say no, then we have "free speech zones" where anything goes. Get ready for more, because this demographic is sick to death of religious privilege in the United States, and they see this dynamic as a great way to demonstrate their point.

    I would say that it is pretty effective already.

    And even by most 6th century standards he was a sick twisted individual.

    so, marriage age for girls was 12? Mohammed married a 6-year-old girl and had sex with her at 9 and this is officially part of islamic history, the oldest still existing sources for that being from the early 9th century (= not much later).
    Hell, even Roman emperors would have called him a pedo!

    Prematurely sexualizing a child — which is properly defined as any human being whom NATURE has not yet rendered physically adult via PUBERTY — is predatory. This is not a matter of culture. It is a matter of nature itself. It's one thing for a child to explore his or her own body in private. It is quite another for a teenager or adult to disrupt that child's normal trajectory of psycho-social and sexual development merely to gratify their own deviance. And any culture OK'ing that is sick and twisted. But what do you expect from the third generation of religions descended from a madman willing to slaughter his only son Isaac to gratify the perverse whims of a genocidal, imperialist super-tyrant conjured from his own diseased imagination?

    Someone ought to explain to Mr. Silverman that atheism is no more a religion than baldness is a hair style. Putting up a monument to atheism does not support *any* religion or faith. Mr. Silverman's conclusion that such a monument opens the door for kooks like scientologists has no foundation in fact.
