Thank you AVCR and putting Islam on an equal pedestal

Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa, Allow the Burkini
in response to reader comment: Qur'an 5:33

Dear Dr Pipes: I referred to Q5:33 because I consider it an extremely violent and savage verse of Quran. Your very concerned reader AVCR provided the full rendition of the worse. I thank AVCR for doing that.

The purpose here is not to malign Islam. The need is to put it on an equal pedestal with every other religion and doctrine in the world. No one gets away with violence. Islam also shouldn't. No one gets away with shameless amalgamation of church and state. Islam also shouldn't. No religion is beyond reproach. Islam also should not be.

It is important that your readers build upon each other's ideas. Islamic hegemony is too strong to be fought otherwise.
