Isn’t that a rather simplistic view? Your inference that all conservatives believe the same thing on all issues is as ridiculous as saying all liberals believe the same way on all issues.

Here is an example of an agenda driven mouth piece on the Left...
Christian terrorists? Those monsters? Hmm. Another typical oversimplification of the problem and the manipulation of the facts by a liberal.

The Seleka, a mostly Muslim group, is comprised of nomads that have raped and plundered their way across Africa.
The Seleka initially backed and installed Michel Djotodia as president of the Central African Republic in March 2013. Shortly afterwards, Djotodia announced the dissolution of the Séléka in September 2013, but most of the militias refused to disband. The fighters that ushered in Djotodia ran wild across the country during his time in office, plundering villages and killing Christians as well as supporters of the former president Francois Bozize. The disbanded group has dispersed into the countryside and have been committing mass atrocities according to Human Rights Watch.
Executions, rape and looting by ex-Seleka fighters after the coup and disbanding have fomented religious tension where the population is 80% Christian. As many Christians had sedentary lifestyles and many Muslims were nomadic, claims to the land were yet another dimension of the tensions.
Christian militias, using the name anti-balaka, have been formed to defend the population and fight the Muslim Seleka.
In November 2013, the UN warned that the Central African Republic was at risk of spiraling into genocide, and was "descending into complete chaos”. The United Nations is considering sending troops to stop the atrocities. On November 26, France indicated that it would boost its presence an additional 1,000 soldiers in the Central African Republic to augment its existent 400 troops if it receives U.N. backing.
On May 28, 2014, the Seleka members threw grenades before shooting indiscriminately at the Church of Fatima in the capital Bangui, killing at least 11 people.
In retaliation, the Christian militias are fighting back. Anyway they can. Fighting for their lives.
By arbitrarily calling the Christian militia “Christian terrorists “ and “Monsters” demonstrates that you are:
1) Ill informed of the situation
2) You are just parroting the chants of agenda driven individuals regardless of the facts
3) You support the Muslim Seleka nomads in their quest to destroy the Christians and take their land.
By the way... The Christian militias, go by the name anti-balaka. Do you know what that means in English? Anti-balaka means "anti-machete" or "anti-sword" in the local Sango and Mandja languages.
And you see them as “Christian terrorists “ and “Monsters”. I guess we all see where you stand now.
