Default Radical Islam vs. Radical Christianity

[ QUOTE ]
Radical Christianity is just as threatening as Radical Islam

[/ QUOTE ]


Not said by me but Rosie O'Donnell. To tell you the truth I really don't like Rosie at all but does she have a point here?

Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda. Seems about as bad as anything Islam has to offer.

No, she doesn't have a point. When radical Christians hijack planes or blowup subways or trains, get back to me. These radical Christians in the US, Falwell, Robertson etc...try to influence politicians and voters to adopt their agenda. I disagree with many things in the agenda, but at least that is the American way.

Did they, the evangelical right influence the politicians to go into Iraq? Or was that just the Bush administrations idea?

I guess a better question is. Is the evangelical right radical Christians?

There are a lot of people in the Bush Administration, plus many of the war hawks outside the Administration, who are not radical Christians. I didn't support the Iraq war, but we did have a vote in Congress to authorize it. The American people can choose to vote out members of Congress who voted differently than they wanted them to vote. I am not sure how that compares to radical muslims who commit acts of violence . I think it is a huge stretch to call the Iraq war a product of radical Christianity.

When an Iraqi hears Democracy the first thing that pops into their heads is Christianity.

His ban expired or was lifted. I even hijacked a thread in ATF to welcome him back.

Back on topic, I disagree that radical Christianity is as dangerous as radical islam for the simple reason that I could count the number of Radical Christians I have heard of that want to murder people on my fingers. I also find it contemptable to call people essentially taking a political position dangerous, although calling their policy positions dangerous is fine (and the positions are dangerous).
