You’re here. You’re already enraged, I can see. It’s okay. Sit back and grab a cuppa’ tea while Uncle Crowder guides your fragile, little, hand on down the logic trail.
As a lefty, you live to talk about the Westboro Baptist Church. Even though they have less members that the over 60 Bieber fan-club, you give them a microphone as early and often as possible. And why wouldn’t you? In an attempt to justify your hypothesis of Christian hatred/extremism, they can make your case more effectively than you could ever imagine.
The only problem is that you and I both know they share nothing in common with mainstream Christianity. Any time they’re given the pulpit, they are quickly and universally condemned by Christians of all walks and denominations. Pity. You really were hoping they’d be relevant, I know.
Contrast that with the “moderate” Muslims you so fervently defend. The over EIGHT HUNDRED MILLION MUSLIMS (thats 800,000,000) either support Sharia law, support the killing of converts, encourage laws in violation of women’s rights, and yes, openly support the prosecution and punishment of anyone who draws the (false) prophet Muhammad.
Let me re-iterate, a majority of Muslims support punishment for people who draw a picture of the (false) prophet Muhammad. 78% of British Muslims alone, in fact.
That is without a doubt, unequivocally, indesputably worse than carrying a super-glued bristol board emblazoned with the words “God Hates Fags.”
See, the Westboro baptist church is a tiny organization with terrible ideas. Evil ideas, yes. But they are not an organization of violent, evil actions. I can’t think of one place that any of the Westboro baptist church’s twenty members have bombed, one innocent crowd on whom they’ve opened fire, or one innocent Christian they’ve burned alive.
I can point you to tens of thousands of Muslims who do those things in the name of Allah every day. And I can point you to hundreds of millions of “moderate” Muslims who support it.
If a gay man walks into a Westboro baptist church, he’ll be called a “faggot.” If a Muhammad-drawing artist walks into an Islamic country, any Islamic country… he’ll be slaughtered.
So leftists, again, I ask you. Where’s the equal coverage?
