I saw a bumper sticker on a car today, that spelled out co-exist in symbols of various faiths or personal beliefs. The symbols represented were those of Islam (the first symbol), followed by a peace symbol representing pacifism, a gay rights symbol, a symbol representing witch craft or paganism, Judaism, Buddhism, and Christianity. As I started to analyze this bumper sticker, I wondered if the person who designed this did any research at all, and here is why. Islam forbids gay rights and homosexuals have been hung by some followers in the middle east and beaten in Europe, it forbids witch craft and people have been put to death for being accused of practicing it, their overall view of Jews is abundantly evident, and some followers have been actively attacking Buddhists and Christians world wide. Do the millions of people who have these plastered on their cars have any idea of the reality behind their utopian co-exist concept?
