Recently, a certain Confederate “heritage” enthusiast posted the reasons he dislikes Muslims. My attempt is to get him and others with similar opinions to realize that the blood spilled in the name of Islam has nothing to do with Muslims who distance themselves from the fringes is just like the examples from Christianity I am going to set forth.
Let’s start off with the Bible itself. There seems to be many perverted stories Lot and his daughters were the only people saved by God from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah because they were viewed as righteous. Lot offered his daughters his daughters to the men of Sodom for sexual abuse. (Genesis 19:8) He would eventual have sex with them and raise two sons through his daughters. (Genesis 19:36)
And it still occurs!
Female Genital Mutilation/Circumcision is common in Christian areas like Uganda and Ethiopia.
Then there are Christian militants like Joesph Kony who kidnap children and force them to go to war.
Then there are Christians who murdered innocent people. Anders Breivik killed 77 people, 8 in a bombing and 69 at gun point because his Christian beliefs.
Wade Page murder 6 people in preparation for what he considered a racial holy war. He thought the people he murdered were Muslims because they wore turbans but were instead Sikh.
American politicians going to war and citing Christian as an influence.
Again, I am not condemning Christianity, just the fringe that does these unspeakable acts. To bring up ISIL when mentioning Islam is the same as bringing up any of the things I’ve mentioned when someone talks about Christianity.
