Vive la France!

I cannot sufficiently express how little I think of fundamentalists that slaughter people because they were offended by the depiction of their "prophet" (this includes all religious fundamentalists - I don't discriminate). The cowards that killed the staff at Charlie Hebdo are dead now, which is for the best. Current reports suggest they killed 12 people and wounded dozens more. Also let's not leave out the other cockroach that killed 4 people in a Jewish store. Unfortunately this is just one in a series of similar attacks around the world. Earlier this week it was a village in Nigeria, and a few years ago it was Mumbia, India. That's just the easy ones off the top of my head. There are too many examples to list.

This is not a holy war. This is a war against ignorance and intolerance and discrimination and bigotry masquerading as "religion". Fight it with intellect, and if need be fight it with force of arms. If that's what it takes then that's what it takes.
