Olympic star Louis Smith banned by British Gymnastics over leaked video of him mocking Islam

But you can mock Christianity all you like, of course

Olympic silver medallist Louis Smith has been suspended for two months by British Gymnastics over a controversial video leaked online that showed him mocking Islam.

Footage, filmed by Smith but leaked to the media, showed him and fellow gymnast Luke Carson laughing whilst pretending to pray and shouting 'Allahu Akbar'. He has said that he has since received death threats.

British Gymnastics said it would investigate the incident and an independent panel has now found the 27-year-old from Peterborough guilty of a breach of the organisation's Standards of Conduct. Carson was given a reprimand.

Smith, who has won four Olympic medals, including silver in the pommel horse at the 2016 Rio Games, last month posted a message on his official Twitter feed in which he apologised for the incident.

Yes and Islam is just a religion of peace and love.

Islam is what I call an immature religion - or at least is a religion brimming with immature people. If my "God" needs me to kill someone who insults Him, he's not much of a god, and not worthy of worship at all.

All religions should be mocked.

More people have been killed in the name of religion than any other reason. Until a religion renounces killing as a means to eliminate competition or homogenize the populace it is only a cult and needs to be treated as such. Most brands of Islam fall into the cult category.

Again, most of them had little to no killing in the name of religion.
