Sunday Sermon: Closer to home

OK, so we had a bit of fun twitting extremist Muslims with “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day,” but now that that’s over and done with, it’s worth noting that while Islam may be the biggest source of the worst extremists, it’s not like they’ve got a monopoly on people who want to kill those they disapprove of.

Case in point: Pastor Jeff Owens, who urges his followers to “Stop burning flags and start burning fags” (extra link in case the ones there have been taken down). And, of course, when Christianity was about as old as Islam is now, burning heretics (like the Templars in the picture shown) was even more common.

I should probably go off on some sort of rant about this, but really, I’m just speechless. The thing speaks for itself.

  1. I find it very interesting when Christians decry Muslim practices of dhimmitude today when at the time of the original Caliphate that made Islam light years more liberal than Christianity. The fact that Christianity has progressed in the time since then whilst Islam has stagnated in many parts of the world is sad.

    I love pointing this out whenever Christians talk about how barbaric Muslims are…or how evil atheists are. Ah, how blissful short-term memory can be…
