A Pastor and Christian activists Donnie Swaggart said during a recent broadcast of the Houston, Texas talk show Frances and Friends that LGBT activists are like the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in that they want to destroy Christianity and behead its practitioners.
According to Right Wing Watch, Swaggart — the son of disgraced 1980s televangelist Jimmy Swaggart — made the statements in response to local efforts to enforce the city of Houston’s anti-discrimination ordinance.
“All of this is to shut the Bible up,” Swaggart said. “They want the Bible gone. And I’m going to make a statement: These people that are trying to do this in Houston, the only difference between them and ISIS, those thugs in Iraq, is those here cannot chop our heads off. That’s the only difference. The heart is the same. The heart is the same. If they could silence us that way to intimidate others, that’s exactly what they would do.”

This is what close minded people do. They build up those they perceive as their enemy into monsters by projecting their own fears and faults. They invent all sorts of scenarios where their enemy would, without a doubt, take a certain action. This because truth to them and they can then justify all sorts of insane rhetoric and sometimes violent action because, in their mind, its justified.
I wish more people would take the time to step back and take a look at the world from an impartial perspective. When everyone can look at the world the way it is, instead of through their own filter, then we as humans can finally start making some forward progress.
