I believe that the salient point in this discussion is that someone who is looking for insults is bound to find them. Its a tired old story -- sorry, I couldn't resist.
I don't understand why the left insists on defending this unreasonable behavior. These are the most extreme conservatives in the world and pretty much represent everything that the left claims to hold in contempt. Blasphemy laws will be ridiculous because then they will want to call everything blasphemy I'm so sick of it..This comparison of radical Islam with radical Christianity is such a tremendous stretch, it's laughable.
radicalism of any sort is unacceptable.
agreed, but, I wouldn't say that radical Christianity is a threat to world peace.
i'm as left as you get, and i don't defend it (just sayin :D)
but i don't rule out that radical christianity can lead to things like the matthew shepherd atrocity. doesn't excuse the muslim stonings of women, though. it all sucks.
@Lucinnda- You're right I should be more careful not to generalize like that. Sorry.
I don't think every left wing person actually defends radical Islam, I said "The left insist.." when I should have said most of the left or some of the left.....
