Shocked and pleasantly surprised at youtube.

I agree with most of what Condell says, and he had a lot of valuable condemnations of that violent belief system known as islam in his video. It needs to be seen, and deserves to be seen. Every other religion accepts criticism and islam is going to have to learn its place in the western world, kicking and screaming if necessary.

Those of us who can prefer to fight with words rather than weapons. I applaud his efforts, as I concede to some extent that arguing with christians is more of a hobby than a cause. Ridicule is much more effective as a course of action- who debates wiccans or astrologers? Having public arguments at least makes the public aware of the arguments, but it's a hobby for many on both sides.
