Part 2 of the “Quotemining David Wood series.
In recent years, hatred towards Muslims in America and Europe has been on the rise. Some commentators have taken to the Internet to spread their view that Islam is inherently violent and incompatible with western democracy.
Using rhetorical sleight of hand, they present a specious argument that a religion practiced by well over a billion people is a single unified force bent on destroying western civilization.
David Wood is just one such commentator, and the piece this series is based on can be seen here.
I am not Muslim. I am not Christian. When it comes to religion, I am not anything. I am just a guy with a sarcastic sense of humor and the sincere hope that some day bigotry will be ridiculed out of existence.
Here, the question of whether David Wood is just like everyone else is answered conclusively.
Also, the difference between sacred texts and phone books is explained, and a sock puppet representing a bigot is justifiably berated.
