I'm good thanks

Christian fundamentalists are up in arms because some Muslim cleric went on national TV and said he wants to see sharia law in the US and that Muslims pray for the day when the Muslim flag flies over the White House.

Now, correct me if I'm wrong but don't Christians want their law to govern all the world? Don't they want their religion to take over the world?

What's the difference? Fundamentalists on both sides want their religion to prevail and to force everyone to bow down and worship the same fairy tale characters they believe in. Muslims want to win over the west, Christians want to win over the middle east.

So who wins? Who's right?

Nobody wins when whack job religious types want to force everyone to their way of thinking and believing. No one who says that their way is the only way is right.

The only winners will be those of us who reject religion or those who keep it in it's proper place, away from others. If you choose to believe in a religion, fine. Just don't try to make me believe in it and don't try to force others to believe in it. And above all, don't mix it with any political system. People should treat religion like sex, have it, enjoy it, even experiment with it, but do all that shit in private with consenting adults.

But their god is the right god and everyone else's god is the wrong one so they're doing us all a favor, right?

Wrong.
