Islamofascists and The Klan

Not a new rock group, but a comparison.

  • The Klan believes that God is on their side
  • The Klan cover their faces and, in fact, wear fully body suits not unlike the niqabs above
  • The Klan does not allow women to hold formal positions in the organisation
  • The Klan hates Jews and is anti-Zionist
  • The Klan hates homosexuals
  • The Klan used terror tactics of burning and bombing churches and the homes of its opponents
  • The Klan lynched innocent blacks (Islamists behead innocents)
So how, exactly, is Radical Islam different to the Ku Klux Klan?

Answer. It's not.

Radical Islam and the Ku Klux Klan inhabit the same moral vacuum.

If you can't recognise that Radical Islam and the Ku Klux Klan are kindred spirits and this is the type of evil we're fighting against then you really are a moral idiot.

Now contemplate the Ku Klux Klan with nuclear weapons....

That thesis was promulgated on NBC's The West Wing shortly after 9/11. The point was that radical Christianity was just as bad as radical Islam. Another way to remember this point: 9/11 was a faith-based initiative.

I want to know what radical Unitarians are known for.

Or radical Atheists for that matter. (Tempting to go with a Communist theme for that response, but Communism was about an economic structure, casting off religion was a residual consequence, not a central tenet.) Madalyn Murray O'Hair types might take organized prayer out of the classroom, but they won't fly planes into buildings or burn anything on your lawn.

Radical Unitarians though... what terror could they visit upon the rest of us? Compulsory committee service?

Hey, I don't know that we were too far away from that when you consider the toll of the OKC bombing.
