I figured as much, considering the subject matter, but are they really that retarded? That's a rhetorical question but the blind eye that leftists give islam while projecting all of islam's bad shit onto Christians is all so silly and backwards that it almost seems like a joke. What a world we live in.

Christianity is about free will. That's one key change from old testament to new testament. One must voluntarily accept Christ into their life and heart. Islam and Judaism are about force. Catholicism is also about force. They changed key parts of Christianity to make it a power structure, removing your direct love relationship with God and replacing it with a shame based relationship with the priest. Nothing against Good catholics, many are very Christian despite the Vatican's distortion.

What's also about force? Communism. Every aspect is forced upon the people with the power of the state.

This is another theme that I expect will show up in the next few episodes. Not a critical view of it, mind you, but a nostalgic look back to the 'old days' by the handmaid or another character on her level. Unless their old 'America' is like our current America.

It's been long time since I read the book, but I believe you're correct.

Yeah, pretty funny how they project all the evils of Islam (misogyny, homophobia) on modern Western Christianity, isn’t it...

Margrette Atwood is anti free market / Christianity. If the oppressors were Muslim in the story it would be a great book / show.

But it was Christian nations that abolished slavery and Islamic nations that perpetuate it. The irony is just so palpable.
