Honor killing in Houston? OK...but ...The Christians! 40 dead gay men swinging by their necks from bridges and construction cranes in IRan...but that CHRISTIANS!!! the CHRISTIANS!!! 3200 butchered children left in a field with their heads crushed by rocks, many of whom had been brutally raped while the rest were forced to watch...well...what about the Crusades and THE CHRISTIANS!!! the CHRISTIANS!!!
FLDS...Amish...Mennonite...Baptist...Im sure they all have their quirks. THEY didnt just send avowed jihadi mercenaries to kill people for daring to draw pictures.

Moderator's Warning: There's a topic here folks. Let's stick to that as opposed to one posters attempt to threadjack this on the back of Godwin style logic
Imagine if Walmart owned access to all the streets in your town. You can go to Target or the mom and pop downtown if you want, but all the roads leading there require a toll, whereas the roads leading to Walmart are free. That is not the avenue the internet needs to go down.
To point out the ways in which RADICAL Christians and Muslims agree on various social issues is not blaming Christianity as a whole, just those who hold the views and who force the women of their group to act and dress in certain ways. Far too many evidently believe that any criticism of their group, small as it may be within a larger society, is an attack upon the entire society even though the majority don't agree with the tenets of the minority.
I doubt it is possible for those living within the rigid confines of the True Believer community but I am NOT shrieking about THE CHRISTIANS!!! THE CHRISTIANS!!! THE CHRISTIANS!!! I am simply pointing at the utter hypocrisy of a tiny segment of those who call themselves Christian.
Just as there are 'Christian' preachers who call for the execution or imprisonment of gays, there are Christian ministers who happily perform wedding ceremonies for gays - Tell us, which is the TRUE Christian? There are Christian preachers flying around in private jets and owning multiple residences while others who call themselves Christian give up all they own and voluntarily live in poverty while helping the downtrodden - Tell us, which is the TRUE Christian?
“And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
