Where today do Christian fundamentalists “kill, destroy and defame”? Where are there mobs of Christian fundamentalists lynching innocent Muslims for perceived “blasphemy,” turning mosques into churches, and forcing Muslims to submit to them and pay them a special tax?
There is an escalating Muslim persecution of Christians that makes this moral equivalence at best, disastrously out of focus. At best. Do the suffering Christians not warrant any consideration at all? Any realistic discussion of what has happened and is happening to them?
“Pope says no religion immune from fundamentalism,” ANSA, September 14, 2015 (thanks to Insubria):
(ANSA) – Vatican City, September 14 – Pope Francis warned Monday that no religion could consider itself safe from fundamentalist elements. “No religion is immune from its own fundamentalism, every confession has a group of fundamentalists, whose job is to destroy in the name of an idea, not reality,” Francis told Buenos Aires FM Mileniium 106.7, an Argentine protestant radio station. “Fundamentalists distance God from the company of His people, they transform him into an ideology. In the name of this ideology, they kill, destroy and defame”.
