Blaming the beheaded

How the pro-murder for “blasphemy” side sees things:

Salih is the editor of 5 Pillars. It’s fascinating to see his anxiety about oppression and brutalization of Muslims in France as a response to the murder of a teacher by an engraged Muslim. Obviously Muslims in France should not be oppressed or brutalized, because no one should, but if we’re going to talk about “terrible violence” what about that teacher?

Not his problem, it seems.

The teacher didn’t show his pupils “blasphemous caricatures” because “blasphemy” is a word that doesn’t mean much to people who don’t share the religion in question. It’s not “blasphemy” for me to say Jesus is not sitting at God’s right hand, because I don’t adhere to the religion that says Jesus is too so sitting at God’s right hand. Believers may see it as “blasphemy” but that’s their problem. Some people think it’s a form of blasphemy to tell the truth about Donald Trump, but that’s their problem. Some people think it’s a form of blasphemy to say that men are not women, but that’s their problem.

This is a guy who fancies himself a news editor.
