Well, at its heart, Islam was founded by a violent man. Christianity and Buddhism weren't. Quite the opposite. Regardless, much of modern Christianity is essentially a glorified Sunday market/cake baking competition. As an atheist, I'm no fan of Catholicism or Anglicanism, but at least they've had the good grace to become largely an irrelevant joke and move over so science and secular humanism can assume their proper role. Not so with Islam and some forms of Christianity, which is why I regard those things with complete disdain. Having spent the past few hundred years doing our best to defang Christianity, we should not be welcoming Islam into our midst as something worthy of respect. It's not. It's completely antithetical to the modern world. As such, it should be challenged and mocked at every turn for being the product of a backward, and hopefully by-gone, age.

One sometimes gets the impression that the mere words "Socialism" and "Communism" draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, "Nature Cure" quack, pacifist, and feminist in England. -- George Orwell
