There is an irony that many of these religious bigots - which is what they are, let's call a spade a spade - profess to hate Islam and all it stands for. They will cite (often inaccurately) sections of Sharia Law, to evidence that this religion is anti-inclusive, is cruel and discriminatory and so on - and completely fail to understand that they, too, are intolerant, religious fanatics, extremists, bigots, hate mongers - all the things they are accusing the other of. I'm not a fan of organised religion, I'm with Karl Marx on this one, but the Christian Right in the US does scare me just as much as radical Islam.
