The Stupidest Post Ever By Will Saletan
Will Saletan convinces the rioters to relax (if they read Slate and are susceptible to, you know, reason).
The ridiculousness starts with the lead-in:
Dear Muslims, Christians, Hindus, and Jews,You’re living in the age of the Internet. Your religion will be mocked, and the mockery will find its way to you. Get over it.
If you don’t, what’s happening this week will happen again and again. A couple of idiots with a video camera and an Internet connection will trigger riots across the globe. They’ll bait you into killing one another.
Come on, why be “inclusive”?
I tease a Christian friend about believing in god. He teases me about not believing in god.
I mock the ridiculousness of circumcision with some regularity.
I have no fear that some Schlomo Glickstein and his mob of yeshiva students are going to drag me out of my house, rape me, and murder me for it.
