Gene Simmons, best known as the long-tongued member of rock band KISS, recently called Islam a "vile culture" while in Melbourne, Australia. He denounced extremists and believes that women in that culture are treated worse than dogs.
Simmons believes that the west is threatened by Islam, stating "they want to come and live right were you live and they think that you're evil." Simmons also decried the United Nation's and thinks the west should "speak softly and carry a big stick."
Simmons' comments came during a radio interview on 3AW in Melbourne, and according to Chairman of the Islamic Council of Victoria Yasser Soliman, he started by attacking extremists, but ended up tearing at the Muslim culture as a whole.
