From the article:

If you were a Muslim, choosing between a more moderate form of Islam that accepted the ideals of pluralism, freedom, and secular (not religious) rule, and the bloody-minded sort that proclaimed Sharia for all, and those who insult The Prophet shall be beheaded...

...which of the two forms do you see the world's governments bowing down to?

One thing religions tend not to have is tangible, real-world proof that they're the One True Religion.

But when the governments of all the world bow down to one form of Islam (and not the other)... Well. That is at least a demonstration that one form has real power, an undeniable ability to make nonbelievers and opponents kneel and bow with respect.

We might as well just start putting up ads that say, frankly, "The Salafist, violent, close-minded, intolerant form of Islam is the True Form of Islam."

Because that's what our actions are saying.

Check your sources people.This story about cencorship is false. The MTA has said it will put a disclaimer on future statements of this sort, i.e.,

"Mary had Sex,,, at least once, with a man."
The MTA does not necessarily agree with, nor is it, responsible for this message.

Seems reasonable to me. So don't let the wing-nuts get all or your panties in a twist when this is just right wing anti Gov. and by extention, anti Obama, Crap.

Obama hit it out of the park the other day at the U.N. He stood up for free speech, deriding slanderers of every ilk, while defending their rights to say whatever they want... even about him. He made me proud to be an American.

MTA passengers should start carrying pork lard and fatback to 'accidentally' spill in the trains. If the Islamics are that intolerant, they need to go back to their lousy desert sands and unfaithful camels in the Middle East and stay there! All mujadeen should be designated as firearm practise targets!
