To enforce my point

I've never heard any supporter of gambling, prostitution or drug abuse say "Kill those islamic moralists, who are trying to destroy our sinful way of life by imposing their boring virtuous rules!" and actually use machine guns and bombs to defend themselves from invasion of Eastern moral values.

Some people just don't get that if they don't use drugs, don't gamble and stay away from women, they are not automatically granted permission to kill sinners in the name of their God. Nor kill themselves in frustration that they don't like what they see around them. If you guys feel that you are better and more virtuous people, just be virtuous and show those miserable sinners every day how good you are.
