"The Handmaid's Tale"

Post by Nightshade » Sun Sep 17, 2017 9:20 pm

"The Handmaid's Tale is an American television series created by Bruce Miller based on the 1985 novel of the same name by Canadian writer Margaret Atwood. It was ordered by streaming service Hulu with a straight-to-series order of 10 episodes, with the production beginning in late 2016."
In the near future, fertility rates collapse as a result of sexually transmitted diseases and environmental pollution. With this chaos in place, the totalitarian, Christian theonomic government of "Gilead" establishes rule in the former United States in the aftermath of a civil war. Society is organized by power-hungry leaders along a new, militarized, hierarchical regime of fanaticism and newly-created social classes, in which women are brutally subjugated, and by law are not allowed to work, own property, handle money, or read.
Sound familiar? It should...

That is ISLAM TODAY- not some fictional dystopian horror created by insane "Christians."

you think he even knows where to look for a clue at this point? What a coward, he's hiding under his bed when he doesn't emerge to post xenophobic, bigotted posts or fascist smokescreens.

No, I really don't. He is making one of the strongest cases for a basic sanity prerequisite for voting I've ever seen though.

I don't know what's funnier... that you see 'evil islam' in everything you come across TB... or you can't see the similarities between islam and every other religion out there.

Because if you did just a little bit of digging, you'd see both islam and christianity are derived from the same father religion.


Like I said before... We get it, you hate islam.

But the fact is, all religions are pieces of crap - only made to control and subjugate everyone who isn't in power by use of fear and guilt.
