Even Bill Maher concedes that Christianity is not as Bad as some Religions

Week in Review

The American left is not a fan of Christianity.  They don’t like their moralizing.  Their opposition to abortion.  Even the Catholic’s opposition to birth control.  So they attack and belittle Christians every chance they get.  And they say and do some pretty horrible things.  The more outrageous or blasphemous the more the left seems to enjoy it.  But they don’t dare criticize Islam.  Which Christianity pales against when it comes to moralizing, birth control, abortion and the brutal oppression of women (see Bill Maher hammers Islam: ‘It’s the liberals here who don’t quite get it’ by Jeff Poor posted 6/22/2013 on The Daily Caller).

“The problem is, the Arab Spring kind of turned into the Arab Winter,” Maher said. “And Saudi Arabia, I mean, is the most conservative of all. As people criticize me for what I say about the Muslims. I love all people. And it’s funny because the people that come up to me privately say, ‘Bill, I’m with you about the Muslims.’ It’s the American Muslims. It’s the liberals here who don’t quite get it. We’re not criticizing people. We’re criticizing a belief system that turns people into something we wish they wouldn’t be.”

But he also observed that compared to other religions, Islam gets a pass on some of its practices.

“But, you know, Mecca is the capital of the country,” he continued. “And they routinely put people to death … the religious capital, but it’s equivalent to like the Vatican, right — with Catholicism. And, if at the Vatican, they were putting people to death for homosexuality and apostasy, and, you know, adultery — things like that, I feel that there would be a big outcry. I feel that liberals would be upset about that, and it is the center of the religion. It’s a ‘mecca.’”

The enemy of my enemy is my friend.  And as long as Christianity is around some on the left will tolerate Islam no matter what they do.  Even the feminists.  And those who support gay rights.  They’ll attack Christianity for every transgression, real or imagined.  But they won’t criticize Islam.  Even though if given the choice these people would choose to live under Christianity over Islam.  For while Christianity may moralize against them.  They’re not publicly executing anyone.  At worst they just have to listen to the Christians about how they’re going to burn in hell for whatever ‘sin’ they’re engaging in.  Which even they will have to concede is a lot more pleasant than being beheaded or stoned to death.
