Don't blame Islam

Reader comment on item: How to Turn Gaza Over to Egypt
in response to reader comment: "Workable in a Democracy"

Submitted by trans-parere (Canada), Feb 22, 2008 at 19:40

Dear Jennifer,

Judaism and Christianity have not been "easily adaptable" when it comes to democracy. The history of democracy is rife with religious antagonism. Islam in the 21st century is just the furtherance of that religious antagonism, and instead of having local bipartite wars or genocides, Islam makes it a world tripartite engagement. Society will even fracture further with the inclusion of the Indian and other world religions. The war of the Abrahamic religions now redefined by the immigration of Islam to the worlds stable democracies.

Christianity and Judaism had their chance but choose Liberal socialism and feminism and multiculturalism and any other hop head leftist method of disestablishing or destabilisation that broke with their culture and history. Now you have nothing. An entrenched feminism that works only at destroying the family unit. The very cornerstone of any society. An entrenched liberalism that stands for no thing or everything depending on from where you view. And glories of glories. A Christianity and a Judaism so socially fractured by this same socialism that neither religion makes any definitive social statement for fear of alienating a minority who don't even practice either faith.

Gimme a break. You people need to check your whole card because when all the chips are down it wont do to be holding aces and eights. And in the last 40 years all you have taught and shown your own is self-hate. I question whether the majority are worth dying for. I certainly don't want any of my children dying so the haters can prosper and nothing actually changes.
