Professor Phil Zuckerman is a non believing Jew. In fact, he’s an admitted atheist.
Although a Jewish atheist, he defends Christianity and explains why lefturds attack Christianity while avoiding criticism of Islam. That’s nice, but there are some more things that he should have talked about at a Georgetown University academic conference last month.
An atheist professor said Tuesday that it’s acceptable to criticize Christians but not Muslims, because he does not “fear” retaliation from Christians.
“I know what keeps me from critiquing Islam on my blog is just fear,” Phil Zuckerman said at a discussion on religious liberty at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. “I’ve got three kids.
“So I know I can say anything about Christianity or Mormonism, and I’m not living in fear, which is a testament to Christianity and Mormonism, and that’s wonderful. Thank you,” said Zuckerman, who is a self-described atheist and professor of secular studies at Pitzer College in Claremont, Calif.
OK, Doc Zuckerman wants to protect his children. If he had no family to protect I’d say he was a coward for refusing to tell the truth about Islam. It’s reasonable to be afraid when Muslims do what they do.
A GOOD REASON TO TREAD CAREFULLY WHEN CRITICIZING ISLAM.
“I absolutely agree that it is okay for those on the left to critique, mock, deride Christianity, but Islam gets a free pass, which is so strange, because if you care about women’s rights, if you care about human rights, if you care about gay rights, then really Islam is much more problematic – sorry to paint Islam with a huge brush – and much more devastating,” he said.
“As an atheist – where on planet Earth is the death penalty meted out to atheists?” Zuckerman said. “It’s only in, I think, 24 Muslim countries.
“Where have human rights flourished the most? In Christian nations,” he said.
“I see Christianity as a great friend of secular culture,” Zuckerman said. “I see Islam as much more of a threat, much more debilitating. I’m not talking about Muslim individuals that I happen to sit next to on an airplane or are my neighbors. I’m talking about doctrines and those that have the power to enforce those doctrines in the form of Sharia law.”
The questions that Zuck should also have been asked to address would be these: Why do so many Jews hate Christians and Christianity? How does Jewish hatred of Christ fit in with Jewish beliefs? And why are Jews at the center of efforts to demolish the West via flooding Europe and America with hoards of nonwhite migrants?
One more. Why can’t Christians criticize Jews without being demonized as “antisemitic?”
