3. Their hatefulness towards those who they deem outside of their beliefs manifest during a funeral of a fallen soldier, abortion clinic, subway cars, and here on internet (remember "God hates fags"?).
4. And let's not forget James Charles Kopp, Eric Rudolph, John William King, those responsible for Matthew Shepard's death to name a few, but let us not forget that the majority of Islam populace does not condone such violence either.
1. Wait a second: Are you willing to stand by that? Modern Christians, as a sect, haven't murdered people for God as a matter of general policy in 450 years but you believe that they are no different from a sect that condones murder as a matter of religious imperative? That's as silly as President Carter's "sinning in his heart" bullshit is the same as fornicating in the park. If it were me, I'd take fornicating in the park any day. What about you? So some nutty Christian sect wanting to do murder in their hearts but not doing it is a hell of a lot (to coin a phrase) different from those Muslim sects that murder cartoonists. Am I wrong? If so, why?
2. Again, I would rather be in a room with a maniacal christian praying for my soul me for the greater glory of God than a maniacal Muslim decapitating me for the greater glory of God. Don't you see a difference, really?
3. The proportion of Christians who believe as those minor Christians sects, or who even sympathize with those sects, is very small compared to the total number of Christians. That is simply NOT the case with Islam. Must I prospect in the mountains of Internet data that have been published on this or will you agree to my assertion out of hand?
4. Those are definitely Christians of some sort. But are they common or are they infrequent? Again, the majority of the Christian sects are on record opposing that kind of behavior and condemning those kind of people. Ask the Episcopal Church, about as mainline Christian in the USA as you can get, what they think of homosexuality. In contrast, Islam as enforced through sharia recommends that kind of treatment towards the abomination of homosexuality (this, despite the prevalence of pederasty in many Muslim-dominated countries).
