While I do not doubt that there are many good and caring people in all religions. It has always bothered me that too often 'moderates" do little beyond paying lip service when it comes to denouncing acts of violence done in the name of their faith. Wouldnt you want to set the record straight if
There is a huge elephant in the room when it comes to subject of freedom of speech and islam. Too often any attempts to criticize are met with accusations of islamophobia or bigotry.
While I wish to believe the numbers of fundamentalists in faith are just a loud minority. I cant help but wonder how much weight these vocal minorities carry within their faiths to result in such a tepid response to their all too often acts of barbarism. But insult their faith or criticize them and BANG you have protests, boycotts, and the obligatory wounded pride all over the news
Far too often they behave as if free speech is valid only when its their speech or that which they agree with. Everything else is just hate speech. I would laugh if their willful ignorance wasnt so sad.
