...Aryan Nations....Yep, about as Christian as the Democratic Republic of China is actually democratic or republic. Or a RINO is actually ¨Republican¨at heart... Sure...
...Yeah, the ones they call the Lord´s Resistance Army too. Which will also come to naught, just like the fake Messiahs of Jesus´day and the other counterfeits of today.
...Various abortion clinic bombings-doctor killings..... Very few and far between. Take the movie everybody forgot about from the early 1990s, The Last Temptation, so'called, about as blasphemous as you can get. Some estimates put the demonstration at a half'million people outside Universal Studios, Christians (and probably a handful of sympathizers) protesting this scurrilous and false portrayal meant only to sew doubt and confuse the gullible. Based on a book written by an loud and outspoken former Greek Orthodox priest, excommunicated for his atheism and his womanizing and blasphemies. And you got the elite idiots doing columns preaching at Evangelicals that they ought to embrace it!!
. NOT ONE WINDOW BROKEN during the march, NOT ONE act of vandalism that I can recall. Notable for its absence.
Contrast that with the reaction mere publication of one book in India by the title of Satanic Verses with a comparable idea transplanted to Mohammed. A price of a million dollars. Or the reaction to a few cartoons depicting Mohammed.. I also denounce their publication, it´s an unncecessary provocation, but the difference today is educational.
Another thing notable for its absence is the campaign of violence today in the USA against Christians, and the passivity of this particular victimized group. The rash of shooting sprees in schools and churches around 1999, white and black churches both across the South, the bombing attacks against pro.life Crisis Pregnancy Centers that help pregnant girls with material needs and alernatives to abortion, lots of love and support poured on.
And the violence from a few homosexual activists, I consider them the cannon fodder for the real mind'benders. Anybody remember the firebombing of Malcolm X´s home.. A Presbyterian minister in San Francisco got a firebomb, actually thrown at the window where his kids were, because he fired an organist that outed himself (the organist).
Here is the truth...::::all of them, reduced to the extreme fringe, isolated and not tolerated by even the most right leaning fundamentalist christians.
(Your point that polite society (my words) are not accepting of suchç behaviour is well taken. Don't be so sure that all Americans are polite society though.)
You gave them as examples of Christians that do violence to further their cause. That´s why the answer was not about ..polite... society but that it is the Christians themselves that isolate these nutcases and fringe liars and counterfeits and suppress them..
The church burnings say it all. They hate churches, at least their leaders do or did. I spoke to that already. Another significant datum on the Klan is that it was founded by Albert Pike, Confederate Army officer, who also wrote Morals and Dogmas, a book still found as i understnand in Masonic temples for their highest orders and in which he wrote that Lucifer was his Lord. That´s from several people who have been there that i´ve personally met.....activities by Klansmen like church burnings get short shrift because the racial component is somehow stripped away from the religious component.
The guys that beat him had nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with anything Christian even in name. The libelous and scandalous association came from all the liars and hypocrite Christian.haters in media who just used it as an excuse to heap it on them yet again. It´s even reminescent of the 1930s in a certain European nation we´ve heard of. There are Jews who´ve even said this in defense of Christians..Does the beating death of Matthew Shepard count? Probably too small an event, by too few people.
It's a great question. If the perpetrators are quiet about their motives (or the reporters don't pick up on it) are christian extremists non-existent?
Hah. They pick up on bad Christian motives when they´re NOT there. Hoo.
Yeah. And even Charles Darwin was grateful for the Christian influence in the South Pacific, where sailors never knew if they were going to meet up with headhunters, and there were enough of those... A native of one of those islands came to the World Parliament of Religions in Chicago of 1898 to plead and beg the Christians that they NOT give in to the supposed equality of religions. He was next in line for a tribe´s meal, when the missionaries converted that tribe.Oh, I'm not disputing that at all. I'm not trying to lessen the impact of the Islamist extremists. I'm only pointing out that they aren't the only religious group to have extremists. Christians send missionaries to virtually every country too, and they tend to spread western ways while deliberately eliminating pagan ways. This is an exact counterpart to the oft-quoted imposition of sharia law in Muslim territory.
And they have been the biggest blessing to women around the world, over any others. Even my super'feminist sister has owned up to this fact.
