Brian’s defence of Pat Robertson makes me chuckle.
That’s fine I guess, but whether or not it was funny, I think I have a valid point.
1) Christian fundamentalism and Islamic fundamentalism are not the same thing. I don’t see Pat Robertson advocating suicide bombings of mosques.
2) Calling a man of faith “extreme” is problematic. If you are a Christian, Muslim, etc. you believe in the tenets of that faith. You are by nature extreme. You act in an extreme manner. I am an extreme Catholic. I believe in all the tenets of the faith, not just the ones our decrepit culture tells me it is Okay to believe in. I am not a “cafeteria Catholic.”
