Steven Crowder saying what I have always said. The Westboro Baptists are an obnoxious but ultimately harmless little street theater troupe. A far larger number of Mohammedans want to kill you.
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.
Even if we take the WBC at their word (I don’t), they represent only themselves, not Christianity as a whole. And even at that the WBC has never advocated the murder of homosexuals. “Turn or burn” is meant as a warning, not two options they are giving you. On the other hand, ISIS, Iran, Saudi Arabia, the Muslim Brotherhood, Ali Muhammed Brown, the Palestinian Authorities… they not only threaten to murder gays, they actually do it.
