The most repulsive comparison I ever heard was the latest ISIS to Christians one. The talking point is there are extremists in both Islam and Christianity.
If ever there were polar opposites it would be ISIS and Christians. In fact, comparing Muslims and Christians is hardly possible. You can look around the world and see what Christians have done.
They helped build homes and communities, purify drinking water, teach farming and agriculture. The provide aid, food, and clothing in every disaster. They build schools and care for the sick. What do you see Muslims doing, besides blowing things up and killing people?
We can see what Christians consistently did in this country. Muslims were attacking this country since the very beginning. They want to compare that?
Michael Eric Dyson compared ISIS to Christians on MSNBC. (see video) So “we don’t have enough counter narratives when it comes to Islam,” says Peterson. Yea, that’s what we need more counter narratives. Except what narratives he is referring to.
That is probably the other underlining problem with their critique, they juxtapose gays (and civil rights) etc with the Christian persecutions going on right out in the open over in the Middle East. Can they not even address and discuss that atrocity, dare we say genocide? No, they must turn it around to make it about political correctness of gays.
Sure women’s rights is a problem too, but they must put it in context of abortion rights and gays. Meanwhile women are being stoned, beaten or killed for the most inexcusable reasons but they have to frame it in reproductive rights vernacular — as if that were the main problem. Give women abortion rights and they’ll be happy.
When Obama went to Africa and tried to sell them on same-sex marriage, they weren’t interested. Obama making the official State Dep position to promote gay rights around the globe probably is not a great sales pitch for America. Yet he told them in his Cairo address that we’ve been arrogant and dismissive toward their concerns in the past. Could trying to force gay rights on them make them like us any better?
But when it comes to Christian persecution he can’t even utter a word about it. He cannot bring it up with leaders or stand up for them. But he can stand up for a same sex couple trying to get married. Genocidal cleansing of Christians, women and children included, and he cannot make a public stand on it. Really now, can you compare IS or Islamic radicals to anything? It’s pure evil.
