Sullivan vs. Islam

In a post titled Islam vs. Brokeback, Andrew Sullivan writes the following:
The movie won't be shown in much of the Arab world. It's offensive to Muslim values.
Of course, Sullivan could have mentioned that Brokeback Mountain has also been banned in China, pulled from theaters in Utah and Washington state, boycotted by a church group right in here my backyard in Bedford, Indiana, picketed by church members in Placerville, California—heck, even the President of the United States of America laughed at the crazy-assed notion that he would go to see the movie. (George Bush doesn't care about gay cowboys.)

Sullivan could have mentioned these things, but he didn't. You see, Islam (not just the fundamentalists, mind you, but the whole shebang) is the sole source of hate and intolerance in the world. All 1.5 billion of them want nothing more than to crush our freedoms. Nothing—not even the truth—can distract from that. It bears repeating: Islam is the sole source of hate and intolerance in the world—as long as you don't count Andrew Sullivan's blog.
