Why do leftists constantly attack the religious right and protect Islam?

It is a constant meme amungst the left, especially the radical left here on DTT to go on and on about the "fundie menace" and at the same time protect Islam. These leftists have adopted the term "islomophobia" so far that are in support of hate crime laws using that term. In western society we have made religious law and our governing laws seperate. This is not the truth about Islam. Islam is as political as it is religious and these laws are very, very strict in regards to many of the things we hold dear in western society. Freedom of speech, women and gay rights.

People go on and on about how many far right religious people view homosexuality yet very, very few would support someone being put to death for the lifestyle. Yet in many nations under Islamic rule this is the case..the same w/ womens rightsm they must dress like a beekeeper when they go outside, required to have an escort to do so. What about a young woman who is raped? How about when they go to court?

Seems like leftists are extremely selective when applying their oh so progressive ideals that they like to preach about from their self entitled soapboxes.

There is no significant “Islam menace” here in the US. How many Muslim lawmakers are there in the US at any level (city, county, state, federal)? Now how many Christian lawmakers? How many attempts have there been to pass laws based on the Islamic religion? How many have succeeded? Now ask the same question about laws based on the Christian religion?

When you can give me examples of Islamic lawmakers passing Islamic based laws here in the US then we can talk about the Islamic threat vs. the Fundie threat.
Thanks from Hollywood

There is in Europe.


The point is one is one of you leftists protected classes where you openly attack the other. Seems very disingenuous.

Funny, i don't remember Europe becoming part of the US. I also don’t remember ever “defending” Islam. To me all religions are the same. Fairy tales adults tell each other to help relieve their fear of death.

I have defended the right of Muslims to freely exercise their religion here in the US as long as they don’t try to cross church state separation.

Islam does not permit separation of church and state.

So why chime in if it does not apply to you or wish to discuss the issue.


I mean. You can look to the gibberish above from your fellow leftists. They don't require a response but yours looked as if you wanted to address the topic.

Huh?

I live in a city with a large, thriving Muslim population and there is nary an Islamic law on the books nor any movement to institute one.

So you're wrong again.

Because the OP is bullshit. I chime in when my bullshit sense goes off. With great power comes great responsibility.
