“Hold on – are you the person who officially understands the codified doctrine of Islam?” Ben asked. “(Your characterization) is gross and racist. It’s like saying, ‘Oh, you shifty Jew!’”

Bill responded, “It’s the only religion that acts like the mafia – that will f–king kill you if you say the wrong thing, draw the wrong picture, or write the wrong book.”

“What is your solution? That we condemn Islam?” Ben questioned. “We’ve killed more Muslims then they’ve killed us by an awful lot, and we’ve invaded more Islamic nations. But we’re exempted from this things?”
