Now if that was the case, surely all the haters of Christianity living in the West would be detonating themselves on a daily basis while screaming “Jesus is great!” — you know, to “defame” Christianity. For some reason or other, instead of defaming Christianity by killing themselves in its name (which doesn’t seem very logical), they’ve taken to doing things like depicting crucified frogs. Could it be, then, that Muslim suicide bombers are not trying to defame Islam?
