A little controversy

Posted on Fri 24 March 2006 in general

Given I was making a point about Christian fundamentalists earlier this week I should perhaps add a little balance. My mind boggled reading this article as I tried to correlate the statements:

"Islam is a religion of peace, tolerance, kindness and integrity"
with
"those who convert from Islam should be killed if they refuse to come back"

A terrifying case of carrot and stick. I know my immortal soul will be in jeopardy should my atheistic stance is proved wrong. But I'm pretty sure my corporeal body is safe from my culturally inherited religion*.

*Assuming I don't change career or sexuality. And being fair these guys are independent bigots and not agents of the state.
