Islam has got to go...redux

Back in February 2006, I posted an entry on the "controversy" surrounding a bunch of cartoons published in a Danish newspaper: Islam has got to go.

Now South Park has stirred up the bees nest that is radical Islam and are receiving death threats.

We, of course, can't lump all Muslims into the same pile. Much like we cannot blame all Catholics for the sexual abuse of children by priests, we can't blame all Muslims for the evil perpetrated by radicals. But if some bizarre Catholic cult tried to ban any image of Jesus under the threat of death, you can be damned sure that everyone, including other Catholics, would condemn such evil. Not so the Muslim community. Have you heard from any stating the the Comedy Channel in the US should air the 200th and 201st episode of South Park uncensored? Have you heard any mainstream condemnation of the death threats? Nope.

Reason #23 why Islam is a stain on society, as is any belief system, religious or otherwise, that denigrates its own adherents and threatens those that don't believe as they do (this includes radical Atheist, who are as bad, if not worse, than religious nut jobs).
