  • Sharpening Contradictions: Why al-Qaeda attacked Satirists in Paris
    • You really can't say christians are not asked to take responsibility for what their fellon chritians did have done or are doing. Catholics are continually asked to take responsibility for the past crimes or the church: accepting slavery, forcing religion on other people, inquisition, slaughtering protestants. I the same way protestants are called to take charge for religious war, for their behavior in the America and Australia in the last ce turies. More recently, catholics are always called to condemn peadophilia ( the action of 4% of the priest who represents themselves less than 1% of the catholics). Protestants are made responsible and are asked to condemn the homophobia of fundamentalist, their sexism and bigotery, the segregation in the USA, apartheid in South Africa. I could make the least for the orthodox, etc...
      What is asked to muslim is the same thinks that as been asked from christians, again and again: to condemn these actions , and the fact that spontaneously many of them decided to say # notinmy name# proves it is not outrageous to ask that, and also acknowledge that in their sacred texts and the way they are used, we can find the basis of that violence, exactly as you can find the basis of homophobic and sexist behaviour in the Bible, so that they need reforms, as we needed reform and reformed our beliefs during the 18th ( enlightenment) and 19th centuries.
      If we had not been collectively called to be responsible for what was done in the name of christianity, religious wars would still be a reality, women would be banned from work once married, homosexuality would still be a crime, as well as working on Sunday, etc... To be called to condemn people who misrepresent your faith and question the basis of that faith is good for everybody.
