...the greatest blasphemy of all

Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

Submitted by Jason (United States), Feb 14, 2006 at 09:23

If the publishing of a few tasteless cartoons gives rise to a call for the trial and execution of the publishers for blasphemy under Islamic law, then Christians have the right to demand the mass execution of every Muslim on Earth, the burning of every copy of the Koran ever published, and the destruction of every Islamic holy site on Earth.

Why? Because the Koran has the gall to refer to Jesus as just a prophet. That is a blasphemy at least a billion times worse that a few cartoons. Jesus is the Son of God, not some mere human prophet. To attempt to place any mere human on the same level with Christ, as Islam does, is the worst possible kind of blasphemy. As such, all Muslims are blasphemers and deserve immediate execution in the most painful and horrific manner possible.

Now does that seem like a rational idea to anyone in the "Christian" world? Heck no, and it is not a concept that I adhere to. It is just a rhetorical mirror held up to the fanatical idiot protesters in the Muslim world.

As a Protestant Christian who is married to a Catholic, and has Jewish cousins and a Muslim son-in-law, you could say that I represent a growing sector of Western society. America and Europe are becoming more and more ethnically and religiously interrelated. This is the real issue driving Islamofacism. The more interrelated we become, and the more Muslims get to practice their religion without the presence of religious police, the less control the fruitcake extremists have over the religion.

As my son-in-law said, "The catoons may be blasphemy, but the greatest blasphemers are the rioting animals. They are the ones who should be rounded up and executed, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT MUSLIMS!! True Muslims do not behave this way. These animal are on a par with the Crusaders of the Middle Ages: people using the symbols of religion to further a political agenda of hatred and violence." The one thing that that Muslim young man and this Christian old man can really agree on is that Satan has a very special place in Hell for both groups. Aren't they in for an eternal surprise.
