Okay, so maybe it is about Islam. Perhaps it's time for our cherished cultural
relativism to be relative itself.
Samantha, if you could choose, and other things being equal, would you prefer
to live in an Islamic fundamentalist country or one that is not? Would you
prefer that the country you reside in currently be more or less secular?
If you suddenly found yourself living in one of the Shariya countries, would
you prefer to take your chances with being exploited by a secular imperialist
world power or your local theocracy?
Why is it that it's okay to criticize the excesses of Christianity, but not
those of Islam? Religion is religion is a crutch for the weak at best a
virulent meme disease at worst.
