Here are some snips from Condell’s recent effort, although the whole six-minute piece is worth a listen.
The first line included is a thought I’ve had many times: Why should I respect a religion that despises women, particularly independent ones like yours truly? Islam is anti-women; therefore it is anti-me.
“Why am I anti-Islam? Well, for the simple reason that Islam is anti-me. And it’s against every fundamental value I hold…
The entire religion is built on foundation of prejudice, injustice, inhumanity and I’m anti all of those….
If you ignore the bad things — the aggressive separatism, supremacism, the social intolerance, the relentless special pleading, the phony grievance mongering, the psychopathic level of misogyny, the honor killing, the genital mutilation (sanctioned by the prophet incidentally), the rabid gay and Jew hatred, the intimidation and censorship, and the constantly present threat of violence over social issues — there isn’t much wrong with Islam, it’s perfectly kosher, if you’ll pardon the expression. The trouble is if you take these things away, there’s nothing left.”
