The cartoon wars just bring out the best in people.
I thought I was clear in the post that I don’t hate Muslims or think they are all bad. In fact, I thought I quite clearly stated the opposite: that one may believe in a bad ideal and yet remain a good individual.
Thus, most Muslims I know are wonderful people.
Yet, at the same time, most Communists I know are wonderful people.
In either case I do not wish them to become anything other than a small minority. Not because they are bad, but because I hate the thought of them having the power to reorganize society along the lines of their chosen ideology which is dangerous.
Some of my best friends are people I wouldn’t want to meet in large groups.
By the way, make sure to read Rusty’s whole essay. I’ve emailed back and forth with Rusty previously and he seems like a nice enough guy, which leads me to believe that he was hitting the bottle when this one spilled out of him.
…then there is Special Ed:
Editorial cartoons exist to challenge political thought and expose hypocrisy. Among religions, Islam should be the least protected from this form of speech, as it insists on involving itself in temporal political matters wherever it is practiced. Indeed, it insists on dictating political and legal matters, usually in the most extreme terms, and it uses the life of Mohammed as its claim on political and legal supremacy.
The Christian Right? Can’t say that I have ever heard of it.
…and finally Michelle Malkin gives in to her better angels (warning: sound and fury).
