I cannot abide by apologists calling Islam a religion of peace. Not when every new day brings fresh tales of violence. Not when the devil that they call Allah rewards murder with polygamous sex. Not when their undeserved supremacy is fought for in countries big and small around the globe.[H/T, Cerberus]
Islam must be labelled for what it truly represents: wholesale slaughter and a corrupt ideology of sex and death. It must be stopped.

Shame on me. And shame on anyone who is so superior, so sophisticated, to dismiss sincere and devout people on prejudice, on ugly and despicable bigotry.
So they believe in something; we should all be so lucky.
Two very different views from what seem to be similar thinking people, on how to handle viewing a particular religion. The latter I can support, whole-heartedly. The former, makes me very scared.
I bet you something, though. When I get the Inevitable Hate MailTM, I'll find out that ugly and despicable bigotry is to be tolerated provided it's against "them" and not "us". Who "them" is and who "us" are, depends on your point of view, of course.
Before you can comment though, with the unbridled rage I'm anticipating, you need to explain to me if the above two statements are compatible.
