Spoiled Brats

Reader comment on: Sweden: Hate Speech Just for Imams

Submitted by John MacArthur, Feb 22, 2017 12:02

We need to keep asking the question 'why does Islam get a free pass?' Quite simply because there is now a critical mass of Muslims with a taste for jihadi methods and Shari'a violence to make life very uncomfortable for the authorities. But, why do they cause so much trouble?
Nobody likes being offended and those who deliberately set out to offend are rightly to be censured as having bad manners, not necessarily criminals who should suffer under the law. People say things about Jesus which I find offensive but I won't be taking to the streets any time soon because - guess what - I'm an adult and grownups are able to deal with things they don't agree with without childish tantrums. The more idiotic demonstrations I see which are fueled by Islamic sentiments, the more I come to the conclusion that there's a petulant child at the bottom of this. Sweden historically has had a more tolerant attitude to children than elsewhere which is perhaps why they have no problem in putting up with spoiled religious brats on their streets. Is anyone offended? Never mind. Get over yourselves.
