Sarah, if "one billion people" serve a false prophet and love him despite the fact that he was a brigandish... murderer, how does that oblige the rest of us, the non-insane people, to "respect" such a figure? To heck with that. And to heck with pretending to respect Mahomet out of fear. I'd rather let them burn down the house so we call all see what their religion has brought them: a case of mass hallucination.

Your argument is akin to the one for eating feces. "One trillion flies can't all be wrong."

Yes, they can.
