And Americans are awfully quiet when christian politicians harass transsexuals with...
Oh bullshit. Anyone who isn't a Christian decries this crap all the time. And then, in response, the Christian conservatives all bitch and complain about how Christians are being "persecuted" for wanting to "exercise their freedom of religion". It's even an issue on the GOP side with the Presidential election.
Did you somehow sleep through the media flap when that fat, ugly woman in Kentucky on her 4th marriage refused to sign marriage licenses for homosexuals?
Muslim extremists, Christian extremists - they're just two sides of the same coin. Fortunately, the majority in both camps don't go along with this crap
That's incorrect. Pew research has conducted polls showing that majorities of regular, everyday Muslims believe in policies like those.
The thing we have going for us here in "Christian countries" (the West) is that 1) much of Christianity has gotten away from the Medieval, violent stuff thanks to the Enlightenment (unfortunately, it seems that parts of America are slow to catch up; all the craziest and most extreme Christians are here in the US), and 2) the native-born occupants of Western nations are (thankfully) becoming less and less religious, and more secular. However, the same is not true in Islamic countries: everyone there is Islamic, there is no growing agnostic or atheist movement, and Islam never went through the Enlightenment.
