1. Since other religions have also done evil things in the past, we should feel no moral outrage against ISIS for mass murdering Christians, Kurds, Shiites, beheading helpless captives, and burning a captured pilot alive.
2. (The Left wants us to believe) We have (somehow) inherited the ancient sins and the guilt of our ancestors, and because of this, are unworthy of moral outrage. Therefore, we cannot take any actions to stop Islamic barbarism in the here and now. We must accept our deaths, because it is ISIS's turn to murder people; it's only fair, after all. With any luck we will meditate on our shameful guilt before the scimitar separates our heads from our necks.
3. Because of point #2, Obama is off the hook for doing nothing substantive to stop ISIS, and may not be criticized for the failure, nor for cuddling up to the Muslim Brotherhood and other radical Islamic groups.
The left seeks to substitute moral ambivalence for moral clarity. In the process, they weaken our will to survive evil.

I figured regardless of religion, this is human history.
IS destroy Monastery
Summary- IS destroys a 4th century Christian Monastery in Northern Iraq called the Mar Behnam Monastery. It contains "one of the most valuable Syriac libraries in existence."
They preserved Syrian calligraphic writings... "Syriac calligraphy presenting the genealogy of Jesus from the Gospel of Matthew, dating back to the 17th century, was also reportedly preserved in the monastery."
When will this madness stop...
