Roland Emmerich Axed Muslim Destruction From 2012 Out Of Fatwa Fear image
Roland Emmerich is willing to murder billions of people in his films, blow up the planet, and end life as we know it; but there’s one thing that stops him cold: Islam. Emmerich tells Sci-Fi that he’d originally planned to include a scene in his new disaster movie 2012 where the Kaaba was destroyed. It’s a cubed shaped building in Mecca and one of Islaam’s holiest sites.

So why’d he back off? You know why. Because he’s afraid of Muslims. Emmerich says, “my co-writer Harald said I will not have a fatwa on my head because of a movie.” Bear in mind that in this same movie he utterly demolishes the Vatican while wiping out a bunch of Buddhist monks and no one seems to care. I’m not sure this is so much a feather in the cap of the Pope as it is a check mark on my list of reasons not to read the Qur’an.

And now I’ll stop talking, because I’m an even bigger pussy than Emmerich and this is my second article about Muslims today. If I keep typing who knows what might seep out of my fingers and into the keyboard. If you’re reading this and you’re a religious fanatic: Please, not in the face. I'm just a dumbass movie blogger.
