Right Thinking From The Left Coast
No legacy is so rich as honesty - William Shakespeare

I’m curious.  Every time I am critical of evangelicals or of organized religion I am accused of being a Christ-puncher, despite the fact that I’ve never actually had a bad word to say about religious belief in an of itself, only in the way some people manifest that belief in negative ways.  However, yesterday and today I’ve allowed people to create astonishingly derogatory images directly insulting Islam.  The reason I did this was as a form of protest, to show how stupid it is for people to get all up in arms simply because someone else happens to express a disagreement with their particular religious beliefs.

So, why is it a bad thing for Muslims to get pissed off when people cast aspersions on their religious beliefs, but perfectly acceptable for fundamentalist Christians to throw a fit and insult me for questioning the truth about the biblical account of creation?
