What about the strip club?

From last October – Maajid Nawaz explains to Bill Maher, Richard Dawkins, Michael Moore, Valerie Plame and Al Sharpton the ideological narrative behind the rise of Islamism. He says it’s a peculiar mix of fascism and religion.

    I like Majid. But I’m wondering if the fascism is intrinsic to the faith? Submission (the meaning of Islam) is a totalitarian concept. Islam provides a Narrative about a perfect book, a perfect man and a total solution for human life. Isn’t totalitarianism the natural result of taking such narrative seriously?

    And Christianity isn’t about “a perfect book, a perfect man and a total solution for human life”?

    Silentbob, way I see it, Christianity’s holy book allows for secularism (“Render unto Caesar”) and so I find it slightly less pernicious than Islam.

    Ah, yes. “Render unto Caesar”. Which is charitably interpreted as, “I support the separation of church of state (don’t worry, you’ll learn about that sometime in the eighteenth century)”. And uncharitably interpreted as, “For fuck’s sake don’t piss of the Romans! You think I want to get crucified?”.
