I am a bit confused? MAybe I just don't liket his style of writing and can't follow it, but who is being persecuted here? People of other religions? Fundamentalist Christians?

As for "Clash of civilizations", very few people make that quote any more, the book, while interesting, has been largely discredited among academics. A better book on the divide between societies is Orientalism by Edward Said.

Yes...sorry, I was just wondering what parts are blasphemy, the article itself lost me, so I was wondering what is blasphemy.


It isn't usually a term I hear pagans use.

Me, I use the term only when someone makes a far-reaching statement that I disagree with in my very soul! :roll: :lol:

Usually when somebody says "No Thanks, I drink Pepsi.", and then I always respond with "Blasphemer!!!" :-D :lol:
