Yeah, that would stick in their craw, wouldn't it?. Look at what that baying mob did to that poor student in Pakistan the other day, simply for giving voice to his humanist sympathies. Unconscionable behaviour for any person who professes to love or fear God, and utterly despicable.
They can protest their love of peace all they like, but all I see is intolerance of any other belief than their own, and a state that just sits back and washes its hands.
The only real debate is whether or not the extremists hold sway. I believe there is a case to be made.
