The real question here is: Are Muslims more sensitive about Islam than most are about their other respective religions?
While there's no doubt that each religion has their fair share of humorless stiffs, I don't think it possible to deny that this element is noticeably more frequent with Muslims.
As an atheist, I don't have to fear the fury of some figment of the human imagination. Not being bound by silly blasphemous taboo, religion is just like any other topic to me and fair game.
In my many years here, I'm sure I've attacked all religions most sacred. Be it calling Jesus a drunk (see locked photo), goose-stepping to the copy machine (See locked photo) or calling Muslim ancient scripture a ball of yarn (yeah, ball of yarn... oooh my, that one really is insulting, ain't it?).
Since 2001, I've received no less 10 personal threats of death to my own person and that of my family, and countless others of just silly insults and promises of eternal damnation, etc. by anonymous individuals proclaiming to be Muslims. Admittedly, I have no idea if indeed these were Muslims sending me the hate mail (for the record, I don't believe it's anyone I've interacted with here).
However, the ball of yarn comment got me barred for a month. Poor Admns knew there was no real reason to bar anyone for such a silly comment, but the whining finally wore them down. I almost volunteered to bar myself just to spare the Admns, but I digress…
On the other hand, no Jew or Christian has asked that I be banned or barred for my blatant blasphemy of their most sacred hood, never mind death threats.
Conclusion: Jews and Christians have learned to live and dismiss without insult or threat the self-condemning blasphemy of infidels. After all, if I'm wrong, it'll be me frying with the chicken nuggets, not them. And when they do feel insulted, seldom do they react in such anger that prompts violence and melee. In other words, they've grown up. In fact, most have learned to laugh it off, those-crazy-unbelievers-are-nuts type of dismissed laugh. It's time Muslims do the same. That is; grow up.
Yeah, I think religion is repressive, antihuman, antinature, a social retardant, humorless, vicious, joyless, intellectual servilely and yes, stupid. So sue me.
That is all.
