What about Christianity? I’m so fucking tired of people trying to defend their religion by shifting the blame from one religion to the next. You do realize that whichever side you’re throwing this divertive smokescreen from, in doing this you’re admitting you don’t have a reasonable defense for the atrocities of your religion. This is the equivalent of saying. Gasp! Look over there!
Do you see me defending Christianity? I rail against it regularly on this channel, because I was raised in the church, and I know all the messed up stuff in the Christian faith. And I lambast Islam because I grew up in the Muslim world. I’ve been all over the Middle East from Turkey to Afghanistan. I know the way women are treated under sharia, and I see the constant threat gays and ex-Muslims live under – fearing for their very lives (often facing threats of honor killing from their parents and siblings). When you try to argue about which religion’s worse, you’re at least yielding the fact that they’re both BAD. The Bible; the Quran? Same diaper different skid marks. I go after them both, systematically dismantling their malarkey with ruthless abandon because they’re both dangerously problematic and stifle progress. But I can only deal with one at a time. And as I do, I get the inevitable see-saw of whataboutery from both camps. Any one person can only hope to address one problem at a time. Would you burst into a breast cancer awareness run yelling “what about bronchitis?” No you wouldn’t, because doing that would make you a dick.
So the next time you hear about some horrible atrocity committed because your religion. Do the world a favor. Wake up and eat your humble pie. And don’t derail the train of progress just because mirrors make you uncomfortable.
