Huh? Isn't God a part of Muslim culture? How can you complain about divine law for Muslim theists while cheering on your own theism?

For what it's worth, here's some analysis from Snopes.

Because it dates to at least 2008, and because there's a sucker born every minute who accepts forwarded emails as some sort of divinely inspired gospel. That's why. Note that virtually all this forwarded half truth and outright bullsh@t is from the right.

I am curious as to what sect of Christianity the OP aligns himself with-as the Christians I know do not possess this sort of bigoted hatred for other human beings.

Let's assume the message or speech was never given. Why does the message still live on?

Why do you attribute this to the "right"? Didn't you and I have a conversation about labeling people "left" or "right" before?

What is that, some kind of caution? "Didn't we talk about you chewing with your mouth open son?"
That doesn't mean that there's no such thing as right or left wing propaganda. This is clearly right wing, as are, in my experience, nearly all the forwarded emails that get posted on forums and mindlessly passed on without scrutiny. It lives on not because it contains any transcendent truth, but like all forwarded emails because there's a sucker born every minute.
