Thoughts On Islam And Personal Freedom

I don't think the problem is with Islam as a whole. I think the problem is that th fundamentalists in Modern Islam simply more power and influence than in other religions. Over seven hundred years ago, Christianity also was dominated by intolerant and violent fundamentalists who weren’t much better than present day Jihadists. They didn’t call it the "dark ages" for nothing.
This being said, there is no justification for being hypersensitive to Muslim sensibilities. Freedom of speech and personal autonomy are non-negotiable, period.
