    Salman Rushdie should not be persecuted for critiquing Islam

    He is a renowned author known for using his wry sense of humour, magical realism, and Indian culture to explore ideas about identity, history, politics, and religion.



    In 1988 he published his now infamous novel The Satanic Verses which caused all hell to break loose in the Muslim world. He was even accused of blasphemy by the late Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini who placed a $3.3-million bounty over his head because of the book.




    Additionally, the book resulted in massive protests where Muslims across the globe were calling for Rushdie to be killed.

    From Wikipedia...

    Rushdie supported the election of Democrat Barack Obama for the American presidency and has often criticized the Republican Party. He was involved in the Occupy Movement, both as a presence at Occupy Boston and as a founding member of Occupy Writers.[154] Rushdie is a supporter of gun control, blaming a shooting at a Colorado cinema in July 2012 on the American right to keep and bear arms.[155][156] He acquired American citizenship in 2016 and voted for Hillary Clinton in that year's election.[157][158]
    Just another leftist punk. To hell with him.

    From the quote you have provided, he does, indeed, seem like a leftist.

    And that is very far from my own worldview.

    Still, what happened to him was horrible, I believe.

    I do not base my opinion of an action on my opinion of its subject.

    I read the book a few years ago. It's a good read. The section that caused the uproar in the Muslim community, is like nothing to me.

    That is not Christianity.

    Wanna know what Christianity has to say about it?

    "Whosoever lieth with another man, as with a woman...that man hath committed an abomination in the eyes of THE LORD."

    Do not define Christianity by its blasphemers.

    He was a Leftist from another era.

    The New Era, that of violent radicals who take orders from the Globalists as well as Islamics...they don't tolerate any dissent.

    Chautauqua Institution is a Woke center of Old Money, now - and where they used to encourage debate and discussion, now it's all about The Narrative. Rushdie would have been a natural speaking guest there, thirty years ago. Today...sadly, given the nature of the DNC and Leftists...the assault is not at all surprising.

    Only Islamosavages are persecuting him.

    And, hell...they persecute each other.

    The Basics of Islamic Cultural Interaction:

    --Muslims hate America, a wee bit less than they hate Jews.
    --They hate the West, a wee bit less than they hate America.
    --They hate the rest of the world, a wee bit less than they hate the West.
    --They hate each other, a wee bit less than they hate the rest of the world.

    Islam is a culture almost entirely motivated by hate.

    Sol Star: He's not mad.
    Al Swearengen: He's got a mean way of being happy.
