There is no "nice" Islam

You know if Shea's saying it, it must finally be filtering down into the mainstream of socially acceptable US "conservative" Catholicism.

So, you know, it must be, like, true now. Or something.

It was a spectacular display of deliberate willed stupidity by a media culture that demonstrates repeatedly it does not want to acknowledge that Islam tends to breed such acts of terror with startling frequency.
Meanwhile, the Religion That Can't Grow Up beholds the carnage wrought by another Son of the Prophet and naturally blames . . . somebody else, while feeling sorry for itself:
"When a white guy shoots up a post office, they call that going postal," said Victor Benjamin II, 30, a former member of the Army. "But when a Muslim does it, they call it jihad."
Um, no. When the Muslim calls it jihad, we call it jihad, just as when a Christian used to call it a crusade, we call it a crusade.

Hilary,

I know that's not what you mean, but it's worth pointing out that jihad is not a Crusade, nor vice versa.

Don't give 'em any more sand for their cannons.

Mark Shea said it? Maybe Islam isn't so bad after all.
