Cross-Burners
You know why these whacked-out Islamist protesters are so fond of burning the Danish flag? It's not because they know anything about Denmark, per se, but because they are using that particular symbol as a proxy for burning the cross of Christianity.

Perhaps this small insight will be of some assistance to those who do not yet appreciate the necessity of our strongest possible response as Westerners to the threat of Islamist extremism.

Better to be reborn through the liberation of Christianity than to die a Submitter to a message of brutality and ignorance.

Wow, you've turned Christian? Wow again.

"they are using that particular symbol as a proxy for burning the cross of Christianity."

Your headline is more accurate. Maybe they are using that symbol as a proxy for the cross-burners, i.e., the KKK mentality, that after all has a long history of cartoon bigotry.

How in the name of sanity does anyone expect to defeat Islamofascism with bigotry? That's all it is: cartoon bigotry. And yes, Arab newspapers in the ME run the same kind of cartoon bigotry directed at Jews and Israel (and the U.S. because we are allies of Israel.) It's of a piece with Nazi cartoons in the Volkische Beobachter depicting verminous Jews. And it's of a piece with the jigaboo cartoons the KKK has cranked out on cheap pulp flyers for decades. There's nothing Christian about the Danish cartoons, because there's nothing Christian about bigotry.

We will put a stop to international radical Islamist terrorism in the near future. Prospects for completely eliminating Islamofascism from the planet as an ideology are nil. But neither situation is helped by contributing to the bigotry. You can't defeat bigotry with more bigotry.

No, I'm just holding it above Islam.

If Christianity asks you to get on your knees, it's only because it also expects you to stand up again. What would these violent Submitters know about that? Heaven for them is murder.

I am genuinely amazed at your optimism.

Prospects for completely eliminating Islamofascism from the planet as an ideology are nil.

A Westerner can dream, can't he?

But neither situation is helped by contributing to the bigotry. You can't defeat bigotry with more bigotry.

What, is that in a manual somewhere? Demonizing the enemy is a natural part of warfare. The Christian and post-Christian West has every right to and interest in putting itself above Islam in whatever way it must to effect the necessary change.

My point is that if you try to make this about religion, there will be no end to it. It's about terrorism. Find another outlet for your bigotry.

I have no sympathy for people of any religion that places more importance on the next life than this one.

You can draw all the disrespectful cartoons you want of me and the poeple I hold dear, and I'm not going to burn down your house or curse your entire race.

Religion was once said to be the 'opium of the masses'. Looks like sometimes it is the 'crystal meth' of the masses, too.

Well that's mighty white of you, neighbor.
