So, if Christians were to act more like the Muslim death cult, we'd be criticized less often?

Atheist explains honestly why he feels free to criticize Christians
“I would say two things,” Zuckerman said. “I know what keeps me from critiquing Islam on my blog is just fear. “I’ve got three kids,” he said. “So I know I can say anything about Christianity or Mormonism, and I’m not living in fear, which is a testament to Christianity and Mormonism, and that’s wonderful. Thank you. “I would never write the same kind of stuff that I do about certain religions – Judaism, Christianity, LDS, whatever – as I would about Islam – just straight up fear,” Zuckerman said.

He may be scared of revenge attacks from muslims if he criticises them, bu I feel that libs and muslims both have a common enemy they gladly cooperate upon, messiah Yahshuah and his followers.

As detailed in your later post, "Whoever is silent at such a time is a traitor to humanity." Ernst Toller.
This guy has chicken s**t written all over him.

Ironically, he is admitting that he DOES live in fear.....because he DOESN'T write about Islam.

And he doesn't even recognize it? Uh huh. He does, he just thinks others don't.

In one sense I can appreciate Dyer's perspective that she "could do business with this gentleman."

Just admitting that he accords respect to authority based on the credibility of the threat challenging it would pose to his safety makes him more honest than 90% of human race.

On the other hand, there can ultimately be no common ground between those who embrace the value of freedom and those who accept that legitimate authority can be derived from fear. Most humans lie about their courage in the face of danger. But some do so to confront what they fear with a brave face and others to deny the cowardice of their actions. So too, there are those who honestly admit their fears even as they face them courageously, and those who don't even find cowardice shameful enough to deny.

I prefer that people be honest. It makes everything so much less complicated. But it is far more important that people be courageous despite their fears than that they be honest about them. If someone needs to lie and claim not to be afraid in order to show courage, I won't refuse to have them by my side when I stand against the foe. But if someone's going to unabashedly justify their own cowardice, then my only option is to ensure that they fear betraying me more than they fear what my enemy might do.

Better uncertain courage than honest cowardice. Better yet honest courage.

Of course, in my opinion, best of all would be an army of implacable machines which felt neither pity nor remorse, let alone fear. But apparently that would be "evil". Because 'free will' blah blah blah or something like that.

Clown boy had better hope he don't run into me. I'm that other kind of Christian, the sketchy kind. I always figure I can be real sorry, and confess my sins, later.
