All that is just hunky dory OK things to say. You can publish sexually-themed cartoons about Jesus, Moses, Krishna, Buddha, and any other
religious figure, call the Pope a a reptilian, Nazi, pedophile, and that's OK, too.
Well, that is something to celebrate, isn't it schuyler? The fact that all those other folks besides Muslims aren't as
whatever reasons, to the same sloppily weaponized narratives; in this case 'The Movie'?
Right? We should be pretty excited, I would think, that we are able to sit back and criticize the sensibilities of Muslims since we have all overcome
what they have obviously not.
I mean, wouldn't it be convenient for our 'controllers' (whomever 'they' may be) if #ing-just-everyone threw a fit as easily as the Muslims?
That's what we are getting at right?
And our President, who has said in print that he will "stand with the Muslims" if forced, goes along with the whole thing.
I think that the actions of our President and his cabinet regarding this matter show wisdom and restraint.
Since we are so privileged as to have overcome these shortcomings in our own culture that is the wise thing to do: stand by patiently, with wisdom and
restraint, and listen with the most kindness that we can muster while our Muslim brothers and sisters work this out, right?
Benghazi proves that this is possible...
People Power In Benghazi
As this thread suggested, we could all take a hint from the Muslims from that one.
The idea is to shut down the poisonous narratives on both sides.
I fail to understand how we should all be reminded again that we put up with more than they do.
Seems pretty grade-school-playground to me.
Do I think Western religions are crazy? Hell yeah! But these guys are demonstrably crazier.
