What are the obvious comparisons between Born Again Christians & Extreme Muslims?


Both sets of extremists abandon scientific evidence for wild faith, but are resolutely dogmatic, both don't believe in free thinking or free love. Both sets are aggressive in their belief, both are responsible for a great deal of hate in the world. Both groups perpetuate the evils of organised religion, & both push for war. What self-evident comparisons can we draw between the extreme religious right (especially in the USA) and extreme 'Muslims' throughout the wider world? Are both actually the same breed of thoughtless drone & a huge detriment to free thinkers throughout the world?

    Then why does my born again cousin send me crap about how all the gas stations in CT are owned by people from the middle east and how the Muslim brotherhood is taking over America? Same fear based hate propaganda fed to extremists around the world.

    What about the Bush administration and how they turned the middle east upside down? What about the Swedish dude that just massacred 70 students? What about Wolfofitz? There are plenty of examples of Christian terrorists. Don't make me list them all

    Good point - but I think you meant either Sunni Muslims or Shi'ite Muslims. The Sufi Muslims are a small spiritual group that has no history of violence or extremism.

    Check out Jesus Camp. Compare Apples with Apples. There are plenty of Christians who propose and act violently, and there are just as many Muslims who live peacefully.

    Excellent response and a great place to end it. I have been meaning to stop following it, but have failed to do so. I will in a moment. This has gone on long enough and as i said earlier should had been in the forum section. My personal opinion.

    Science invalidates the Christian Faith? Ridiculously stupid assertion. Science doesn't disprove God or Christ Jesus in any way. Christians do not cause misery to anybody. Christians created charity, hospitals, the university, science, and liberty.
