Religion Is Only the Cause When It’s Those Guys

October 11th, 2014

How is it that whenever a Christian attacks, maims, or kills someone based upon hateful scripture, it’s not really Christianity that’s at issue—the guy is obviously mentally unstable! Has nothing to do with the actual religion!

But when a Muslim beheaded someone? That’s definitely Islam, a religion of hatred.

Slight double standard here?

    Israel spends $18.2B/yr on defense. A rounding error on that paying certain people in our media — say, people like Judith Miller — to spin the news doesn’t seem too terribly far into tin-foil territory.

    Not that plenty of people won’t spin things the pro-Israel way for free I guess.

    Stepping back a bit, the ~25% of the electorate infected with the Christianist fundamentalist/evangelical mindset is something straight out of Asimov’s Foundation series as far as social engineering examples goes.
