No offense but this entire thread is absurd. No offense.

Extremism is extremism.
Christian extremism looks like Islamic extremism.
Leftist extremism looks like Christian extremism.
Fascist extremism looks like leftist extremism.
Eastern extremism looks like Tony Jai on an elephant.
My point is that extremist behavior, by the very definition is extreme. Whether or not you are kicking the crap out of people with a sword, your
feet, a gun, or tribbles to support your extremist views you're still being a violent, intolerant person. Who cares if you're violent for Jesus,
Lenin, Allah, Uncle Sam, Karl Marx, Che... you're still a great big meanie.
You can be any kind of extreme there is. An animal rights extremist, a Red Sox extremist...extremism knows no single ideology. It's a belief that
you are 100% in the right and therefore that justifies any and all actions.
I'm tired of the Christian and Muslim bashing. What if I were to say all animal rights activists are loonies because the Animal Liberation League
bombed a university clinic? Would that be a fair assessment? No, because some animal rights people stop at adopting a dog outside Petsmart.
Goodness gracious! Aren't there enough divisions between us? Do we have to create artificial ones?
