I found Satanic Verses unreadable, Islam found it worth killing over. How can -even- an internal debate take place when the Mullahs and the Imams terrorize thought?
So… here’s a thought experiment: Jerry Falwell starts giving sermons tomorrow copied word for word from revered Imams in Iran and Saudi Arabia.
The only difference is that he substitutes the word “Muslim” for every reference to “Jew”, “Christian” or “Hindu”…
As thought experiments go, that was not what we’d call Einsteinian. The conclusion smacks of predestination – Falwell would be toast and the Imams would sue for copyright violation. And our Liberals would offer redemption to the censors, via the self-loathing they are determined to perpetrate on our behalf.
