    As someone said, if it’s a religion of peace, shouldn’t the extremists be extremely peaceful?

      They will be once they’ve achieved peace by killing everyone who disagrees with them. Oh, how peaceful it will be.

        ‘… until the last left-handed man has slaughtered the last right-handed woman for “being different”.’
        Can’t remember where I heard it, but it was a long time ago.

    It’s great, I love it!

    But I have to add that it isn’t why I’m an atheist. It’s more the implausibility of the belief than the motives of believers.

    Philip Adams of Late Night Live radio program on Radio National just run an episode on how wonderful Sayyid Qutb (one of the founders of the Muslim Brotherhood) was for roundly and constantly criticising the US. So long as its anti US and anti West its the Religion of Peace and Justice. Liberalism is great – Problem with naive liberalism though is the nasties eat it for breakfast. I hope we are not stuffed in the 21st century
