    Secularism has never killed anyone.



    Extremists teach that France should not be respected. They teach that women are not equal to men, that little girls should not have the same rights as little boys.

    I tell you very clearly: not with us.



    I have seen too many lies, I want to be clear: what we are doing in France is to fight terrorism which is done in the name of Islam, not Islam. It claimed the lives of over 300 of our fellow citizens!



    I was made to say: "I support the cartoons humiliating the prophet". I am in favor of people being able to write, think and draw freely in my country. It's a right, it's our freedoms. I understand that it can be shocking, I respect that, but we have to talk about it.

    Fair enough, put it well and didn't go after Islam as a religion.

    Interesting to see how leaders in the Islamic world spin it.

    One could also argue that it's secularism that's killing his people.

    The problem with these western secularists is they assume everyone will be a secularist. I mean there's a real naivety going on when you allow millions of Muslim immigrants into a western society and not expect beheadings, bombings and terrorism. Its like they didn't think this through - at all.

    I can't ask for a better response. I just hope he sticks to his guns and doesn't eventually cave.

    That's about as bright as arguing that someone that got shot has himself to blame since he stood in the way of the bullet.

    Also no one thinks that muslims are secular.

    Let it simmer.

    The more I think about it the more it falls apart, seeing how Christians have been part of thinking that immigrants should get help, which is natural since a real Christian is about such things. Certainly nothing uniquely secular about that.

    Like what the fuck. I get that you can say it's not secularism that oppressed Muslims in the USSR or in present day China, and instead it's just reactionary imperialist forces using secularism as a vehicle. But by that logic, it's not religion hurting people either: it's reactions to ethnic and imperial tensions using religion as a vehicle.

    Right. Secular Communism killed more than all religious wars combined. Beyond that Secular Capitalism is #2 and may destroy the planet once and for all.

    Seems pretty strange coming from the French. Considering the role the Jacobins played in advancing secularism in France, and their hands were far from bloodless. Including nuns and clergy.
