    There are indeed nuts in all the “majors” around the world,and a little comparison of “orthodox and Hasidic”, as well as “evangelical” and “Shia vs Sunni” doesn’t eliminate any of them from the “crazies pool”.


    A recent article on “forced/arranged” marriage is jus another also explores the brutality and insanity of these “cultures” , oddly enough dominated by men who claim “God is on our side”, just like "Gott mit Uns’.

    My Muslim friends are aghast and appalled by the violence perpetrated by these individuals.
    While I abhor the Westboro group’s behavior, and I agree with the concept that every religion has its lunatic fringe, this analogy fails. Hhile the Westboro group does reprehensible things like picketing funerals, they have not, to date, engaged in physical violence.

    All three religions from the middleast are inherently violent, simply because at their core they all say, only their relgion is the correct one and everyone else is evil.

    Its just that the Jews and the Christians don’t usually commit “terrorism” because they have become powerful enough to kill people “legally”.

    The Westboro Baptist Church is a minor blemish on the face of Christianity. Radical Islamic bombers are a major boil on the face of Islam. I’m not quite sure how the bigotry and demonstrations of forty or fifty people equates with the mass murders that have been committed by thousands..

    Mikefive,speaking of a blemish. Gun deaths in the U.S. annually are higher than all the terrorist victims killed worldwide annually. 4 X higher, and that was ignored recently by the Senate vote, and Americans seem to shrug and say, what the hell I want my gun, I don’t care! One nation under god, my foot! Gun worship allows the equivalent of a Viet Nam’s worth of casualties in the Christian U.S., that’s a sin!

    Mike, I think history bears out a couple of facts. Most countries fight wars and proclaim they are right and God’s on their side (whoever your God happens to be). It’s man’s rationalization for barbaric actions, often contrary to the actual teachings of the religion. Do we follow these commands as we kill thousands in the middle east?:

    Funny that you lump all liberals together in a comment on this paticular comic. Try reading it again and use your brain. I’m a liberal and I didnt point at anyone. Go look up the word ironic while you’re at it..geez…

    If you don’t think radical Islamsist are “right wingers,” then you should study recent history.

    unfortunately in some countries radical Muslims are a majority [ ex Egypt , Libya]

    Funny, wbr seems have overlooked the carnage of WW! and WW2, as well as the carnage in the American Civil War, fought on America soil, on the graves of hundreds of thousands of American indians, the rest displaced from their lands. America’s economy dependent on the slave labor of Africans, Chinese coolies, and Irish poor.

    I know at least one of these radical Islamists was a legal citizen. Want to bet on which candidate that “right-winger” voted for in this past election? (Here’s a tip-off: the lame-stream media will never investigate, because the result won’t fit with your pre-conception.)

    Speculating without proof, same old churchy! Since you are usually very good about references, I’ll wait for something real, with proof. Sheesh!

    If it turns out he voted for Romney, I’d bet Faux news won’t dwell on it either….
