    So ... Christianity isn't aggressive enough for you?

    The Great Commission involves spreading the teachings of Jesus Christ. Sharia law means having separate religious courts for muslims which do not have to comply with UK laws. And last time I checked no UK minister was calling for people who insult Jesus to be prosecuted.

    This is what I call the "NO U!" rebuttal: our criticisms on the problems caused by other religion are wrong / irrelevent because our own religion can sometimes cause problems. You can cut the sarcasm too.

    The impression I get from many (though certainly not all) irreligious people is that they only complain about theocracies and religious indoctrination when it involves Christianity. Criticising other religions - especially Islam - automatically makes you a "racist" bigot who is unwilling to tolerate other people's beliefs and habits.

    Just like how I would not move to different countries, I do not want a large amount of third world immigrants coming here and changing the culture and government of the country.

    Islam is still a small percentage, and doesn't do much harm. That is why people who are against creationism don't care as much about the small rise of Islam.

    I for one am totally happy to call Islam a totally made up fantasy which promotes and defends dangerous behaviour. Just like Christianity.
