It seems that double standards thrive in this day and age. The only thing that is a threat when twisted and radicalized is Islam apparently. Radical
Christians aren't called radical, they're called........ Wait, what are they called again???
Your definitions of radical is radically different in each country. Radical Islam= Beheadings,stonings,extreme violence.
Radical Christians in the US= Westboro holding signs of hate at funerals, occasional violence against abortion clinics.
In the US when radical christians perform violence they are tried and punished
In the Middle East when radical Islamiists perform violence they call it Sharia Law.
See the difference? And FYI Hate is not against the law. You can hate who ever or whatever you like.Its called freedom.
Shifting the goal post?
The OP has already said Sharia Law is NOT part of the Quran
Some western countries still have the death sentence in some States, some use torture
(Western Style Sharia Law - barbaric!)
Radical christians have murdered, beaten people, have bombed clinics, killed doctors, women, children, men.. some have planned murder to kill a group
Sure use the word hate, but when you kill a group of people, bomb a clinic, beat people because of their 'lifestyle' and/or damage their property ...
thats a crime
To me to pretend one sort of crime is lesser than another crime is unforgiveable, its part of that mentality that loves to shift the goal post to
pretend they are the best, they are better, when in fact they are not, we are not
We shouldnt paint an entire group with the same brush; cultures, traditions, customs, laws/justice, politics/economy, beliefs, are not the same in
each and every country, including inside the Middle East and other countries where Islam is the most popular religion, ie Indonesia, Turkey, Bosnia
We have muslims living in our western countries who dont behead and stone
