Fred Van Lente condemns Islam's "prophet" Muhammed (update: or does he?)

If I'm reading this correctly, Van Lente has said something pretty gutsy:

As far as I've known, Van Lente is a leftist (and he did make the enemies capitalists in the new take on Archer and Armstrong), so this is pretty bold coming from him. The Koranic verses he's alluded to include suras 40:71-72 and 22:19-21, and that's just for starters.

We'll certainly have to give him some credit for showing the courage to speak out against a belief system built upon evil.

Update: now that I realize, it's uncertain he's actually being critical of Islam at all, since his statement doesn't contain any negativity per se. If he's not, then it's a real shame.

Labels: ,

I'm not seeing any condemnation.

In fact, calling him "the Prophet Mohammed" is certainly dhimmitude. Expecting courage from the Western left is like expecting water in the desert, you might find a little here and there, but only with huge, barren distances in between.

You know, I was wondering the same. It's not like Van Lente says anything authentically negative about Muhammed/the Koran's belief, so he really was being dismayingly limp with his tweet.
