Islam and Christianity both suck

October 14, 2015

I actually hate Islam, but Christianity has a more tangible negative effect on my day to day life, simply because there are no Muslims right around here trying to impose their views on me. But I am surrounded by people calling themselves “Christians” and imposing Christianity-based laws on me all the time.

For example: this is a “dry county”, and the one next door (in another state, actually) bans alcohol sales on Sunday. The anti-alcohol troops have managed to drive every “local” bar but one out of business in the past few years. I’m not even a drinker, but I see the negative effects with regard to social life. If you aren’t into sports or church activities, you are out of luck around here. Thanks, in large part, to the Christians.

But it could be worse.

I suspect that each individual Muslim would be worse for my life than each individual Christian- that if there were equal numbers of Muslims and Christians around me, the Muslims would be the greater threat to my life and liberty- but that is only a guess based upon my prejudices.

It still doesn’t mean it couldn’t be better than it is.
