That said I cannot stand islam and the way it is practiced in many muslim countries.
Death for apostasy? Fuck you..... As well as the other backwards baggage that goes with a backwards ideology (you know like christians really should be like if they read their book)....
I used to spend some time time over at the muslim apostates' sitehttp://www.faithfreedom.org/
A muslim apostate is one of the most admirable things a person can be IMO.
Also... It should be as open to ridicule as christianity has become without death threats (I am sure there are many muslims who can ignore pics of their prophet but.... you know... the media...)
Finally there is a growing threat from the more radical sections of christianity known as dominionism....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Dominionist
Rousas John Rushdoony (1916–2001) was the intellectual founder of Christian Reconstructionism, a postmillennial form of theocratic Dominion Theology. Most mainstream Christians reject Rushdoony's views and other forms of Dominion theology as quite radical.
According to Rushdoony and other Reconstructionists including Gary North and Greg Bahnsen, the idea of dominion drawn from Genesis 1:28 implied a theonomy ("rule of the law of God"), which would require all citizens to observe the strict Reconstructionist form of Christianity, and which would punish moral sins ranging from blasphemy to homosexuality with death. Rushdoony wrote that "[m]an is summoned to create the society God requires," "bringing all things under the dominion of Christ the King." A significant influence on Rushdoony and the theonomists came from Calvinist philosophers and theologians, including the presuppositionalism of Cornelius Van Til (1895–1987), though Van Til himself disavowed any entanglement of his work with political movements.
