Don’t hang all religions with Islam’s radicalisation problem

Islam is the only religion in Australia today with the problem of radicalisation, but in our rush to look tolerant, Christian church groups are being monitored. Are we risking the very freedoms we are trying to preserve? Michael Jensen writes.

The particular victory that terrorism seems to be winning is to make liberal society hostile to religion as such.

    “The truth is this: in contemporary Australia, it is Islam, and only Islam, that has the problem with radicalisation. Not the Sikhs, not the Jews, not the Buddhists, not the Christians, not the Greenpeace youth group that meets down the road.”

    Yeah, but, but – the crusades!! And your ancestors were evil and the Old Testament is hateful and misogynistic and, and … I’ll bet your mother made you dress funny, too!

      They even lie about the crussades.

    To solve the problem replace the inaccurate word “terror” with the clear word “jihad”.

    Then the concept of “Christian jihadist” or “Buddhist jihadist” can be seen for the oxymoron it is.
