Read the following two news reports carefully.
There will be a test question at the end.
A) A few days ago, an Islamic fundamentalist shot and killed a prominent pro-Israel leader in his own synagogue. The fundamentalist had been harassing this leading figure of the pro-Israel community for decades, and belonged to an organization that regularly decried him as a "mass murderer" who would receive a punishment from God.
B) A few days ago, an Christian fundamentalist shot and killed a prominent pro-abortion leader in his own church. The fundamentalist had been harassing this leading figure of the pro-abortion community for decades, and belonged to an organization that regularly decried him as a "mass murderer" who would receive a punishment from God.
Question: which fundamentalist is a terrorist?
Both A & B
Neither A nor B
As usual, there is about 20% of the American population who manages to get this question tragically, painfully wrong.
I don't have the arrogance required to tell you what God wants you to do about abortion or anything else, but I can damn well tell you that advocating murder makes a mockery of the words "pro-life."
THIS is why I'm so fervently opposed to the Republican party. These people are their base. It's no longer a matter of differing opinions - the intellectual conservatives long ago bailed on the Republicans, and the few that remain are being pushed out by the Limbaugh crowd. These people think murder is acceptable as long as they do it for a good cause. How is that not fucking terrorism?
Just wait - in a few more months we'll get to hear these same idiots complaining about the "war on Christmas" because some radio station somewhere won't play Christmas music 24/7 or because some school board will insist on teaching a science class with, you know, ACTUAL SCIENCE. You know what's different about our made-up little war on your made-up little holiday? We're not fucking killing anybody.
Is it too much to ask for Christians who act Christ-like?
