Ken, you were making sense for a minute. You were on the verge of expressing the reality we all need to grasp, i.e. that anyone who takes ancient religious texts literally is a bit of a lunatic. CHristians who do so are slightly deranged. Muslims who do so appear to be seriously deranged. I think it perfectly OK to suggest that much of the modern Islamic world is gripped by this irrationality. But, instead of sticking with what makes sense, you veer off into the ridiculous threat of an Islamic Caliphate. Muslims have been dreamign about that for 1400 years, and they have spent more time killing each other than anyone else. The Caliphate is a boogey man used to scare Americans.
