Just Watch Out For Quaker Terrorists

 Besides being generally hateful and stupid, this Salon piece makes an astonishing claim:

Notwithstanding logic and the damage done to our prospects for self-preservation, we avoid frank talk about Islam – the main faith today inspiring terrorism

It's wrong on a number of levels.  Shocking, given how really smart Salon writers (and commenters) are about religious issues generally (right, RMJ and Anthony?).

I was told, in comments at that Salon article, that if I published a blog denouncing Mohammed, or just insulting Islam, that I would be killed.

This despite the fact that, so far as I know, only a few people in France, in one instance, were killed for "insulting" the Prophet. Out of all of Europe, and all the world. Yet Muslim fanatics would track me down and kill me over a blog probably no one would read.

I mean, I wish my blog now got that much attention.

All I'm really saying is: look out for those refrigerators.
