God is for idiots

It is a crime against humanity, not just women.  Admittedly women get hit harder by it.

As I have stated before , it is the most barbaric , primitive , and mysogynistic of the monotheisms .

I abhor all religions.  Is it possible to have a greater abhorrence for something.  If so that is my feeling toward islam.  I think islam is a threat to civilization, and the coming war will be the west against islam.

Islam is a Payday in a Clark Bar wrapper. Everything else is a Payday….

Tribes… Just like here in the USA… Tribes.

What do you mean Belle Rose? You sound sympathetic to Islam.

Comment by SteveInCO on April 14, 2013 at 11:15am

@Unseen I read Bella Rose's comment as being that we need to wake up to the threat it poses (admittedly it's ambiguous, your interpretation hadn't occurred to me until I read your comment.).  Which many on the multicultural left simply haven't done yet; they seem to tacitly approve of every culture other than our own or at the very least insist on a moral equivalence.  (And ironically many of them insist they are feminists.)  The "new atheists" have at least ditched blind multiculturalism and are willing to point at another culture and say "in objective terms that culture is bad" (or at the very least "[even] worse than ours") if nothing else on account of horrific levels of misogyny.

The religious right, to give them their due, is well aware of the threat from Islam, but of course they look on it as the battle between a good religion (theirs) and a bad one (Islam) and in fact their proposed alternative is also a pile of shit.

Sam Harris has been talking about "Islamophobia" recently. Here

One has only to google up some of the videos of official beheadings in Saudi Arabia to see how far Islam remains from most Western culture. Yes, Western soldiers and terrorists have done some behadings, but in Saudi Arabia it's official and 100% legal.

Comment by Warren on April 14, 2013 at 2:09pm

Well here it's 100% legal (according to them) to viciously incarcerate people caught doing victimless crimes. They don't have a monopoly of stupidity and cruelty.
