Muslims Take Themselves Far Too Seriously
The best thing that can be said of Christianity is that it’s not as bad as Islam.
As much as I complain about the actions of the religious right in this country, I must admit that compared to radical Muslims, Christian fundamentalist come across as rather benign. For example, the sort-lived network television program “Book of Daniel” was considered by many Christians to portray Jesus and Christianity in general in a sacreligious way. So they proceeded to call for boycotts of the show’s advertisers and started a letter writing campaign directed at NBC. After three episodes, the show was cancelled partially as the result of the boycott, and partially due to viewer disinterest. End of story.
Compare this to the sh*t fit thrown by radical Muslims all over the world as the result of a few badly drawn cartoons that mocked the prophet Mohamed. Let’s not even talk about the embassy burnings in the Middle East. Western Europe is at this point infested with these barbarians, and extremely hostile protests were held throughout the region. Just check out this sign from a protester in London:
We should all be grateful that the number of jihadists residing in the U.S. is still relatively small. I hate to come across as religiously intolerant, but well, I’m religiously intolerant. I think these protests are only the most visible symptom of a sickness that infects the entire Muslim faith. This is after all a religion founded by a man who advocated military conquest as a means to spread his teachings. In many ways, Islam is the largest and most dangerous extremist movement on Earth. This is not to say that there are not many good, law-abiding, friendly Muslims out there. But to put things in perspective, a lot of the rank-and-file members of the Nazi Party were nice people too.
For a good run down of the latest atrocities committed by Muslims worldwide, check out the Western Resistance site. This is also a good piece from the National Review on how Muslims shouldn’t be too surprised that Westerners take a rather dim view of their religion.
