Ianus: One of your best posts

Reader comment on item: Britain's Encounter with Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Monotheism's structural intolerance

Submitted by Plato (India), Mar 13, 2008 at 22:30

Hello Ianus,

I eagerly await your posts on this forum. And this one I found both enlightening and rewarding to read. You have shown how monotheism with its exclusivist agenda has held back progress and brutalised people of other persuasions.

Eropeans, have through the sacrifices of their intellectuals suffered through witchunts, the inquisition and similar Christian especially papal "benevolence" , managed to look back in anger at the devastation that monotheism from the Middle East did to their Hellenic heritage.

I see the stirrings (I hope I am not wrong for all our sakes) of intellectuals in the Muslim world that may repeat Christianity's experience in Europe. We all are rational animals, including Muslims, and the blood-trail left by monotheism wherever it goes cannot be hidden or washed off however much its followers may try.

(I hope you won't mind my quoting from your posts once in a while)

Warm regards

Plato
