That's sad. Fundamental Islam can lead to violent fanaticism, but not all fundamentalists are fanatics.

It's another sign of increased religious intolerance around the world, and as a Christian I am against it, even if it doesn't affect my personal religion. Freedom is a value of many progressive countries. But none will stand against this.


As a Catholic I encourage it. Look at what us catholics have done in the past.  We murdered millions because they believed something else.  The sooner religion dies the better for our race.  We were all created in the same way whether that be by god or not. Our religions divide us unnecessarily and I believe some religions have been hijacked by men to give them more power over woman. I'll speak for my own, if jesus existed do you really think he'd only want woman to be priests?  I doubt it.
