A NEW PLAY PORTRAYS JESUS AS AN AGNOSTIC/LAPSED JEW TEEN-AGER LOOKING FOR HIMSELF IN INDIA - AND NOBODY IS KILLED FOR BLASPHEMY... ER, UM ...NO ONE EVEN PROTESTS!
READ ABOUT THE PLAY HERE.
THEN ASK YOURSELF THIS:
WHY IS BLASPHEMY AGAINST CHRISTIANITY ACCEPTABLE, BUT BLASPHEMY AGAINST ISLAM - OR BLASPHEMY AGAINST LIBERAL ORTHODOXY, (LIKE GAY MARRIAGE OR ABORTION RIGHTS) - ALWAYS MET WITH OUTRAGE?
I think it's because Christianity is now a matter of personal conscience (other than ex-communication, the Church can't do much), and not a matter of STATE; whereas both islamism and contemporary liberalism/socialism require a powerful coercive force - almost always the STATE - to maintain their hold on the public. In the West, this is most often enforced by PC. In islamist lands they frequently and fervently employ ghastly kinetic means.
The empowered individual who thinks for herself and acts in her own interest and pursues her own happiness is the enemy of both islamism and socialism.
