US Best-Selling Novels 

In his latest op-ed piece for the NY Times, Nicholas D. Kristof tells us that the best-selling novels in the US are Christian fundamentalist stories. This cultural phenomenon signifies that "Militant Christianity rises to confront Militant Islam".
These are the best-selling novels for adults in the United States, and they have sold more than 60 million copies worldwide. The latest is "Glorious Appearing," which has Jesus returning to Earth to wipe all non-Christians from the planet. It's disconcerting to find ethnic cleansing celebrated as the height of piety.
If a Muslim were to write an Islamic version of "Glorious Appearing" and publish it in Saudi Arabia, jubilantly describing a massacre of millions of non-Muslims by God, we would have a fit. We have quite properly linked the fundamentalist religious tracts of Islam with the intolerance they nurture, and it's time to remove the motes from our own eyes.
Yes, it's time to remove the motes from our own eyes.
