It says a lot about the religion of Islam that its proponents react so violently to everyday expressions of free speech. After a magazine in Paris poked fun at Islamic extremism and lampooned the Prophet Muhammad, Muslim terrorists responded by demonstrating that the magazine’s portrayal of Islam was accurate. Hate-filled terrorists slaughtered 12 members of the magazine’s cartoon staff. The contrast between Islam and Christianity is breath taking. Christians—whose God is besmirched, belittled, and insulted on a regular basis—are taught to turn the other cheek and forgive. When was the last time you heard of a Christian taking a gun and wiping out a room full of people because some secular humanist lampooned Christ?
One can only speculate that the Muslim terrorists who murdered twelve innocent French journalists thought their dastardly deed would intimidate other publications into giving up their free speech in favor of safety and security. But their violent response to what they considered an insult to the Prophet Muhammad and the religion of Islam shows that Muslim fanatics do not understand how free people think. The bigots who opposed Civil Rights in America in the 1950s and 60s made the same mistake. They thought they could bully, beat, and intimidate free American citizens into giving up their fundamental constitutional rights. Look how that turned out. Look how the magazine, Charlie Hebdo responded. Far from being intimidated, its cartoonists once again put a caricature of the Prophet Mohammed on its cover and that edition sold millions of copies instead of the usual fifty thousand. So much for being intimidated by terrorists.
To get a feel for how free people think, Muslim fanatics would be wise to study the Civil Rights movement in America.
