4. They hate Christianity.
Everything in the world ultimately revolves around Christianity. Christ’s death and resurrection were the single most important events in the history of the universe, and now all people and all nations are finally defined by their acceptance or rejection of that truth. Liberalism rejects the truth, and it’s rejection is central to its existence, just as our acceptance is central to ours.
Liberalism is, then, nothing more than a protest against Christianity. It hates what is Christian and embraces or tolerates whatever is not. With this in mind, it makes sense that the modern liberal attacks Christianity while justifying Islam. First of all, attacking Christianity is literally the sole purpose of liberalism

""Why Liberals Admire and Romanticize Islam""
Probably because the "Left Wing" mind has some unique defective mutations.
Neuropsychological correlates of amygdala activity
Helps explain the mass hysteria panic attack blame assigning attitudes displayed by "Left Wing" thinking mechanisms.
You want to move goal posts. I accept. I think I'd rather listen to the larger number of Muslims including Imams and Clerics from Islamic countries and countries with large populations of Muslims as well as in the West who denounce Daesh and extremism as not Islam, not true to the Quran.
You want me to question whether extremists are the ones telling the truth while everyone else lies? I think I'll pass. I don't need to question whether Christian Extremists are the ones telling the truth either. Both are kind of common sense, "duh" questions.
The researchers performed MRI scans on the brains of 90 volunteer students who had indicated their political orientation on a five-point scale ranging from 'very liberal' to 'very conservative'. Students who reported more 'conservative' political views tended to have larger amygdalae, a structure in the temporal lobes that performs a primary role in the processing and memory of emotions. In addition, they found clusters in which gray matter volume was significantly associated with conservativism in the left insula and the right entorhinal cortex.  There is evidence that conservatives are more sensitive to disgust  and the insula is involved in the feeling of disgust  On the other hand, more 'liberal' students tended to have a larger volume of grey matter in the anterior cingulate cortex, a structure of the brain associated with monitoring uncertainty and handling conflicting information. It is consistent with previous research suggesting that individuals with a larger ACC have a higher capacity to tolerate uncertainty and conflicts, allowing them to accept more liberal views  T
How can I move the goalposts when you did nothing more than refute your own straw man? In other words, you don't even know where the goal is.
Islam is not simply what the nicer muslims say it is. Islam is the faith in the revelations of Muhammad, as codified in the Quran.
With advances in neuroimaging technology such as MRI, neuroscientists have made significant findings concerning the amygdala in the human brain. A variety of data shows the amygdala has a substantial role in mental states, and is related to many psychological disorders. Some studies have shown children with anxiety disorders tend to have a smaller left amygdala.
A 2003 study found that adult and adolescent bipolar patients tended to have considerably smaller amygdala volumes and somewhat smaller hippocampal volumes. Many studies have focused on the connections between the amygdala and autism.
Individuals with larger amygdalae had larger and more complex social networks. They were also better able to make accurate social judgments about other persons' faces.
I'm pretty sure that's not some big secret that the 'nicer Muslims' try to hide or deny. Is there a reason that it should be? I haven't ever come across a reason to be scared of anything the Islamic Prophet said nor any reason to be concerned about the Quran.

Are you implying that Muslims don't?? Are you implying that All Muslims believe the same as Radical Muslims believe???
Because what I see is that Some Christians respect the rule of law, some don't. Just like some Muslims respect the rule of law, some don't.
I'm saying respecting human law is in the Bible, as told by Jesus. It's not in the Quran. I'm not speaking of individual christians or muslims. As is proven, Islam under the rule of law is quite moderate. When left to its own devices and own laws, it is not.
In a 2003 study, subjects with borderline personality disorder showed significantly greater left amygdala activity than normal control subjects.Some borderline patients even had difficulties classifying neutral faces or saw them as threatening. Individuals with psychopathy show reduced autonomic responses, relative to comparison individuals, to instructed fear cues. In 2006, researchers observed hyperactivity in the amygdala when patients were shown threatening faces or confronted with frightening situations
Amygdala size has been correlated with cognitive styles with regard to political thinking.
-Political liberalism and conservatism were correlated with brain structure
-Liberalism was associated with the gray matter volume of anterior cingulate cortex
-Conservatism was associated with increased right amygdala size
-Results offer possible accounts for cognitive styles of liberals and conservatives
