Why people lose respect for Islam

BBC:

The upper house of the Afghan parliament has supported a death sentence issued against a journalist for blasphemy in northern Afghanistan.

Pervez Kambaksh, 23, was convicted last week of downloading and distributing an article insulting Islam. He has denied the charge.

The UN has criticised the sentence and said the journalist did not have legal representation during the case.

The Afghan government has said that the sentence was not final.

...

If Islam is so fragile that it must kill those who disagree with it, it is in trouble anyway. It is hard to have respect for an institution that imposes the death sentence on those who insult it.
