Came across this 2014 clip of Bill Maher from Charlie Rose while searching the Internet for examples of guns acting of their own free will. I’ll let you guess how successful that search turned out to be. Maher is one of the few intellectually honest leftists when it comes to Islam (see Bill Maher to Democrats: Say ‘Islamic Extremism’ or Lose the Election… and Bill Maher: ‘I Wish Liberals Were As Intolerant of Muslims as They are Christians…’), so when some of his peers try and claim Christianity is just as bad, show them this…
Vast numbers of Christians do not believe that if you leave the Christian religion, you should be killed for it. Vast numbers of Christians do not treat women as second-class citizens. Vast numbers of Christians….do not believe that if you draw a picture of Jesus Christ, you should get killed for it.
So, yes, does ISIS do Khmer Rouge-like activities, where they just kill people indiscriminately who aren’t just like them? Yes. And would most Muslim people in the world do that or condone that? No. But most Muslim people in the world do condone violence just for what you think.
There’s a Pew poll of Egypt done a few years ago. Eight-two percent – I think it was – said stoning is the appropriate punishment for adultery. Over 80 percent thought death was the appropriate punishment for leaving the Muslim religion…It’s not religion – it’s like other religions – it’s just naive and plain wrong. It is not like other religions. The New York Times….pointed out, in an op-ed a couple of weeks ago, that in Saudi Arabia – just since August 4, I think it was – they have beheaded 19 people – most for non-violent crimes, including homosexuality.
Beheadings. Stonings. Female genital mutilation. Why? Because Allah.
But let’s all pivot to the intolerant Christian baker who doesn’t want to bake a gay wedding cake. Because if you listen to a leftist long enough, he will try drawing a moral equivalence between the two. Of course that means you’d have to listen to said leftist without succumbing to the desire to drill your eyes out.
Yet despite all the evidence before them, leftists insist on equating Christianity with the evil ways of Islam. In fact you probably noticed how Charlie Rose insisted on steering the conversation back to how horrible those Christians are, how intolerant they are. How #NotAllMuslims but #YesAllChristians.
Yes, Bill Maher is explosively right. Once we get over patting his back for this one, focus in on what Rose is trying to do here. He’s parroting the left in every possible way: malign Christianity for false crimes, bury the real crimes of Islam. Rather than us flying into fits of rage for his obvious bias, ignorance, and borderline functionally retarded brain, ask yourself why. Why does the left insist on championing Islam and destroying Christianity?
If you thought I was going to let you think about it without providing an answer, silly, silly you! Christianity believes in moral rights and moral wrongs. So does Islam. Except Islam’s moral right and wrongs are a bit more extreme (throw the gays off of buildings, kill the infidels). To understand why the left loves Islam and hates Christianity, look at what Islam hates and what leftism hates: progress, the West, freedom and (drumroll please) Jews and Christians.
Yes, in my opinion it’s as simple as that. It’s the total destruction of our way of life. Total destruction of freedom. Total destruction of self-preservation. Do leftists fear Islam? Sure. It’s a healthy fear. But they also identify with Islam’s core mission: total control and subjugation of its people.
So no, Islam and Christianity? Not the same. Stop trying to draw similarities. You’ll only serve as our next punching bag.
No, not all Muslims are terrorists. But Muhammad was. Learn something.
