Rosie and Radical Religions
Rosie O'Donnell once again showed her ignorance of what radical Islam and "radical" Christianity are all about yesterday on "The View" when she stated, "Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America."
Does Rosie really not get it? Afghanistan was controlled by radicals. Women were refused health care, forced into burkas or worse chadars, forbidden an education, and otherwise oppressed. In Pakistan, parliamentary members threatened to walk if their president brought modest changes to the nation's rape laws, allowing women to testify on their own behalf and to use medical evidence to support convictions rather than requiring four Muslim males to testify that they witnessed forced penetration, a crime that is rarely committed publicly.
Furthermore, homosexuality carried a death penalty under Taliban rule in Afghanistan. Several Islamic countries continue to carry a possible death penalty for homosexual behavior.
Practitioners of radical Islam even attack other Muslims whom they deem insufficiently Muslim enough. While these extremists have certainly killed innocent non-Muslims, they have killed even more innocent Muslims with their terrorist activities. Religion of Peace keeps a tally of terrorist strikes by radical Muslims. "Radical" Christians, whomever they might be, are not causing this kind of trouble. No, "radical" Christianity is not as threatening as radical Islam.
Hotair has a Vent on this.
UPDATE: Reformed Chicks Blabbing weighs in here.
FURTHER UPDATE: My friend mynym over at Into Good and Evil has weighed in also. By linking to him twice in the same post, I admit that I am utilizing the oft- tried liberal appeasement tactic to avert further negative attention-seeking behavior via the technological equivalent of grade school hair-pulling. Think it will work better for me than for Chamberlain? Yeah, probably not.
