Ooh-Aah2 Obit: More Muslim intolerance? (589* d) RE: Obit: More Muslim intolerence? 20 Nov 04


Re-read Carol, re-read (yawn). I'm sorry, I forgot the word 'liberal' is an insult in the US. Over here it means 'humane, unpredjudiced, generous.'

Yup, I see why it's an insult over there!

One last try. I know this behaviour is not unique to Muslims, right?
But   (1) Islam seems to have a much higher number of adherents ready to consider terrorism/ assassination / killing in the name of religion than other creeds and a much more muted response when it does happen.
      (2) I will oppose any creed that gets up to this stuff. I am not a bigot who is picking on Islam from some knee-jerk reason. My views on Islam were formed long before 11/9 and the subsequent anti-muslim hysteria. I can't stand fanatics from ANY religion, Islam seems to have a much larger proportion than other religions. Ever heard of a Buddhist suicide bomber? When did the leader of a major Christian church last call for an author to be killed? Why aren't I as a Pagan out there attacking Baptists who say my religion is an abomination? When did an atheist last stab a religious film-maker to death?
Once Islam was miles ahead of the west in its tolerance, respect for learning, arts, science and civilisation. It is not bigotry to say that this has since reversed with a vengeance.
