Umm,is there an option "C"?



Yeah, how about living under the Scientologists for a third option? The lesser of three evils I would say.

I am wondering what would be worse to live under. Living under ISIS or in a land under Westboro Baptist? Gays would have no chance in either, thats for sure.


Are you serious? You are comparing Nazis to Harper. If you don't know the atrocities of Isil by now give your head a shake.



Hey if ISIS was one big family with little kids, women and old people I dont think they could do much either but have signs saying "Death to Infidels"!

Westboro

There are only 40 of them and to my knowledge they haven't crucified, beheaded, tortured, building punted, or burned alive anyone.


I will take the Sh1t talkers over "proven" murderous zealots that number in the 10's of thousands or more any day of the week.

Experiment implies you had a hypothesis, goofus.

So I ask House Arrakis or Ann Coulter, she looks like that Odo guy from Star Trek.

Personally I would eat a steady diet of Kimchi and Billys famous pan pizzas and then join Westboro. Get into one of those nice fancy church vans with the core leadership. Park the van in a way that the doors have become wedged shut, there is no escape, only acceptance.

I am sure after a few hours, anything is possible.

First, I wouldn't put Westboro down as fundamentalist Christians. Admittedly, I don't know much about them but from the pictures I've seen, you couldn't pick them out of a crowd. An aberrant cult perhaps but not fundamentalist. For fundamentalism in Christianity you have to look to the Amish and Mennonites. You can pick them out in a crowd because they are following the commandment to be in the world but not of the world.

Believe me, there are no better neighbors and community members than those strange fundie Christians like the Amish.
These sects are probably the closest to living by the fundamental precepts in the teachings of Christ. To say that Westboro represents fundamentalist Christians is an insult to those fine folks of the real fundie cults.

So I take it the subject is taking compromise in favour of the lesser wickedness. Bad form I'd say. Rather make no compromises because it'll lead to this weakness to be exploited like a cheap whore in a saw dust motel.

I would rather be called names than beheaded, burned alive, thrown off buildings, drowned in a cage, etc.

Pretty easy choice, unless you are are a real Muslim like ISIS members are.

I can't pick between Authoritarians, but frankly, Westboro only has 20-25 followers whereas Islam has 1.5 billion.



Pretty sure the question was ISIS not Muslims.
Otherwise it would be Isis only has 50,000 followers but Christianity has 2.2 Billion!!

It's dumb.

ISIS does not represent all Muslims or even a worthwhile percentage and it's disingenuous to suggest it does.

I think Westboro would be easier to fight back against, easier to destroy and not as smart as isis.

I really don't think I'd ever say I'd pick Westboro for something, but this would be it. As others have pointed out, they've lost a lot of teeth since old Fred died, and there are a lot less of them. Plus, to the best of my knowledge all they've ever done is bark. ISIS actually bites and they have a much, much bigger pack.

I would refuse to accept the governance of either.

Under neither one is any form of democracy possible, and although I strongly dislike being asked to decide between the lesser of several incompetent evils when I vote, I HATE the idea of bowing to any dictator. It would be my duty as a human being to dismantle their entire enterprise, no matter which bunch gained power, be it awful supremacist Christians, or supremacist Muslims.

I may not be free as I am today, and trust me, I am not. But death would be preferable to living on my knees.
