Riddle me this; Christian reverend Fred Phelps spews forth hate and advocates violence against gays and he the individual is reviled. Muslim cleric says beat your wife and the entire religion of Islam is to blame. Huh?
Both Phelps and that cleric are two sides of the same coin. Their respective religions are not to blame for their behavior, their twisted interpretations of it are. The sad thing is that for every religious zealot we see there are hundreds of thousands of rational, reasonable, kind and just plain normal devotees who we don't see because they don`t inspire fear and loathing, nor do they help to vilify and dehumanize the latest scapegoats.
"one more reason for their extermination" Seriously, genocide?
