My point was that there are two sides to every story. A lot of Muslim countries are anti-American, but that is only because of the crap we've been pulling on them. Men like Bin Laden were using that as leverage. People go to such extremes when they feel they don't have any other choice. The leaders of the Taliban are evil men that are taking advantage of desperate people. Playing the blame game is a powerful tool. The Nazi party pointed their fingers at the Jews, and look what happened...
I do agree that a person shouldn't be judged because of their religion. I've known intelligent Christians that I could have a civil and insightful conversation with. On the other hand, I've met a few that I wanted to smack upside the head with their precious Bible in the hopes I'd beat some sense into them. I mean, seriously, Harry Potter promotes Satanism? *headdesk* The same goes for Pagans, and any other religion. It's the individual person, and what they do with their chosen religion's teachings. Unfortunately, Islam has been painted with a very large brush as being all bad, and there are lots of ignorant people out there who believe it without question.
I don't know anything about the movie in question, but I do know that when someone strongly believes in their faith, they don't take well to being insulted. Add the insult to the powder keg that is the Middle East right now and what did the makers of this movie think was going to happen? Heck, maybe that was even their goal, as sick as that might sound. It proves them right, that Muslims are crazy and violent.
And have we so quickly forgotten what are own American Christians have been doing? The evil Satanist liberals want to allow gay marriage and force a poor Christian employer to offer health insurance that covers the devil's birth control. Yep, some of the laws people want to pass go against Christian beliefs, so some of the more devout have been screaming religious discrimination. Oh, yes, should I go work for Wendys I have no right to make that poor owner give me, a Pagan, birth control because it's against his beliefs. I mean, my god is absolutely fine with it, and it would be me taking the birth control, but making him pay for it with the rest of the health insurance is trampling all over his religious freedom. *sighs*
