I stand with Mr Wilder not because he is in Netherlands or what he saidabout islam. But I stand with him because that basic human being MUST BE... to have a critical thinking all the time to life including to religion.

Critical thinking is very important for human achievement in manything including science, civilitation, including religion itself, no matter what religion is it. Without critical thinking, we stuck like fossil or animal to loose our common sense to exist time to time. Critical thinking only flourish in a free society including to give freedom to speak or critize. That's what Mr Wilder is doing now.
