To The Daily Sun,
There he goes again. Mr. Earle once again defends his advanced stage malignant bigotry with preposterous absurdities. He clearly thinks you're all idiots. He writes, "I have no evidence 'moderate Muslims' are doing a thing other than lip service to fix this problem." He's really going with that! Lip service? Like speaking out against violence? What else can Muslims do to placate a bitter and hateful old bigot? Millions have signed on to hundreds of Fatwas (official decrees) worldwide, condemning violence since 9/11. Mr. Earle wouldn't know evidence if it landed on his head from a Pterodactyl.
Steve says, "Did someone take a worldwide census of all Muslims?" He's going with that, too! Scores of polls and surveys have been conducted worldwide since 9/11. I cited the global study by Pew only a couple of letters ago to the other bigot, Mr. Ewing. Surveys worldwide show a vast majority of Muslims disapprove of ISIS and radical Islam. Most victims are Muslims, btw. And in Iran, the moderate just got re-elected president. There are 20 million Muslims in Europe and only a handful have committed terror acts. Of the 20 million, just 2000 went to fight for ISIS. There are 3 million Muslims in the USA and just a handful have committed terror acts. And American Muslims are more inclusive liberal than Evangelicals. In fact, Pew found only 35 percent of American Muslims think their religion is the only way to God. On the other hand, nearly a half a million Americans have died from gunshots since 9-11. Nearly 200,000 were murdered by Americans. Around 100 have died from jihadist attacks here since 2002. Get your priorities straight. According to the CDC "11,780 Americans were killed by guns a year on average". The FBI reported that there were about 15,696 murders and 90,185 rapes in the USA in 2016. But the Muslims! The Muslims are coming! The Muslims are coming!
He writes (without a source) that a Muslim network has conducted "31,000 lethal attacks since 2001." Another lie. The number regards the number of convictions since 9/11, not actual attacks. According to an NBC News report, The Associated Press "used freedom of information queries, law enforcement data and hundreds of interviews to identify 119,044 anti-terror arrests and 35,117 convictions in 66 countries, accounting for 70 percent of the world's population." Not lethal attacks. The report stated, "More than half the convictions came from two countries accused of using anti-terror laws to crack down on dissent, Turkey and China. Turkey alone accounted for a third of all convictions, with 12,897." For instance, Naciye Tokova, a Kurdish mother and housewife, was sentenced to seven years in jail for allegedly helping rebels who are described by Turkey as terrorists. Her crime? Holding a sign saying "Either a free leadership and free identity, or resistance and uprising until the end."

Mr. Earle also claims I would find it hard to find blood and guts in the New Testament. The New Testament tells women to shut up and obey their husbands; slaves are to obey their masters; gays and lesbians are worthy of death. And if you don't believe in Christ, you're damned eternally in the lake of fire. That's pure unadulterated evil. That's Steve's loving Christian God putting unbelievers in the ovens of hell to suffer unspeakable pains forever. The ultimate holocaust. The ultimate evil.
