← The Pakistan killings are not about blasphemy

I'm not sure the word even exists but if it does than I [and everyone I've spoken too but won't say without glancing over their shoulder] am 'islamophobic', it scares the 'hell' out of me. Anything that would seek to remove my head just for pointing out that it probably isn't true I find frightening. Anything that seeks to oppress women,homosexuals,free thought etc etc needs removing from democratic society. At some point in the future western democracy is going to have to face this problem head on. A free society only works if everyone values freedom. I've heard it said that real islam is a peaceful religion, in the same way that fascism is the politics of peace if you do exactly as you're told. Atheism,civilisations last hope...
