On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough twice suggested such parallels, analogizing radical Islamists to "ultrafundamentalist Christians who believe every single word of the Bible has to be interpreted in the exact ways which could also lead to some violence." A bit later, Scarborough circled back, saying "it doesn't matter what faith you're in," that a literal reading of scripture attracts the outcasts of society, for better or "for much worse."
Right, Joe Scarborough. That shows how little you know about the Bible, and about most Christians.
In fact, the sad thing is, the total opposite is true: most Christians are so incredibly, door-mat pacifist that they believe it is a sin for a Christian to get a concealed carry license, and that it is murder to defend their and/or their family's lives with a firearm.
These pacifist Christians believe it is more righteous for a Christian woman to be gang-raped and strangled to death with her own pantyhose than to defend herself with a gun.
As a Christian who believes in the fundamental right of self-defense, this is sickening to me. If your brand of Christianity involves my wife being raped and murdered while I stand there defenseless, I want absolutely nothing to do with it.
