Quote# 88365

"Well, Al Green is nuts," [Robert Spencer] tells OneNewsNow. "He [is] talking about something that's essentially fictional. There are no Christians who are citing the Bible and using it to justify acts of violence and terrorism. There are Muslims all around the world citing the Quran and using it to justify acts of violence and terrorism."

Spencer also says Green was misinformed in asking why the committee did not investigate a blue-eyed, blond-haired, white female who had become radicalized.

"The only blue-eyed, blond-haired, white woman who has been radicalized in recent memory is 'Jihad Jane,' a woman in Pennsylvania who converted to Islam," the Jihad Watch director notes.

Anders Brevic would like a word.
So would all those KKK loons who lack the guts to act on their fantasys.

Although strictly speaking, anything a muslim does is considered "terrorism" these days... from baking bread to planting a tree, its all "terrorism".
The fact that so many muslims life under openly anti-islamc conquerors, may have something to do with the anger of the islamic community.


"Radicalized" is a euphamism for "Targeted"?

Does this guy not remember just a few weeks ago when a North Carolina pastor used the Bible to justify putting gay people in CONCENTRATION CAMPS!?

However it's a very good thing that this kind of thinking is not in any way representative of Americans in general.

Rev. 2:26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 2:27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

Straight from Jesus's Mouth!

Sadly, all too many Christians seem to follow this sort of attitude towards non-Christians.

Oh yeah? Take a look at the membership roles of Operation Rescue and Army of God, for a start.

Do the words "Ronald E. Williams" mean anything to you?

Does the name ANDERS BEHRING BREIVIK ring any bells?

@ Impostor:

That was rather dumb of you. Do you really think people do not notice the underlined names? Troll.

There are no Christians who are citing the Bible and using it to justify acts of violence and terrorism.

Apparently you've never seen the Army of God website.

There are no Christians using the bible to justify violence except for the ones that do.

You can argue that the Christians using the Bible to justify terrorism and violence aren't good Christians (and then I'd have to ask how they are bad Christians if in their mind they are following the words of the Bible to their best ability), you can even say that they aren't being 100% genuine (even though such a claim would require the ability to read minds) but to deny that the Bible was ever used to stir violence or terrorism is so ignorant that it HAS to be willful and thus dishonest. I mean you'd have to be completely ignorant of abortion clinic bombings, Anders Brevik (which was pretty big news), the Crusades, the Inquisition, the Catholic/Protestant skirmishes, etc. It is far more likely that Robert Spencer is lying than it is that he is that utterly ignorant of history as to not know even the basics.

"You can argue that the Christians using the Bible to justify terrorism and violence aren't good Christians"

These people also claim muslims who are not attacking infidels are not good muslims.

Ask anyone who works at Planned Parenthood if they agree.

"There are no Christians who are citing the Bible and using it to justify acts of violence and terrorism."

Of course not... any that do aren't true christians...

"There are Muslims all around the world citing the Quran and using it to justify acts of violence and terrorism."

Of course they are... any who don't aren't true muslims...

@Rizzo: You do realize he was posting 'as you' to make fun of you by posting a reasonable ending instead of your 'That clinches it, we're DOOOOOOOOMED! and Iran!' you've been doing recently?

He's not a troll. He's a satirist.

Those defending slavery, those against abortion and those against inter-racial marriages often cited the Bible and committed violence "for" their causes.

No Spencer. You do NOT get to excuse just how warped, bloodthirsty, and overall utterly fucked up your religion is. You Christians have enjoyed that privilege for far too long.

Army of God and Christian Identity and Eric Roudolph prove you WRONG

Remember how Uganda was planning to execute gay people, but backed down under international pressure?

Guess what religious group was lobbying for that bill.
