Rosie O'Wrong-ell

Rosie O’Donnell: "Radical Christianity is Just as Threatening as Radical Islam"
O’Donnell: "We were attacked not by a nation. And as a result of the attack and the killing of nearly 3,000 innocent people we invaded two countries and killed innocent people in their countries."

O’Donnell: "And just one second, radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America."
Rosie, Rosie, Rosie. You're absolutely wrong. You couldn't be more wrong; but I understand where you're coming from because I used to be there.

What you call "radical" christianity is frightening to you. They have moral objections to homosexuality. They are against gay marriage rights. They do not believe gays & lesbians should be allowed to be foster parents or adopt children. You believe they are wrong, and I agree with you. Wrong they may be, but that's okay, they're allowed to be wrong and you can go on with your life and not worry about what they think of you. Trust me, I've done it.

However, to equate conservative or fundamentalist Christianity in any way with the murderous bastards of radical Islam who fly airplanes filled with innocent men, women, and children into skyscrapers is stupid; to equate it with the Islamic radicals who behead "infidels" on videotape is foolish; and to equate it with the Islamic radicals who would publicly execute you is the height of ignorance. You aren't ignorant Rosie, you are however letting yourself be guided by wrong-headed moral equivilency.

Bruce Bawer (a gay man, Rosie), had this to say of the West's ignorance of the threat of radical Islam:
Let it not be forgotten, after all, how countries ruled by Koranic law treat their homosexual citizens. Under the Taliban, Afghanistan put at least ten homosexuals to death; on New Year’s Day, 2002, our good friends in Saudi Arabia beheaded three men for sodomy. According to one report, Iran has executed several thousand men for homosexuality since 1979. Even in Egypt, with its relatively moderate and secular government, a widely publicized mass arrest of suspected homosexuals in early 2001 resulted in the torture and imprisonment of dozens of males as young as fifteen. And these figures are undoubtedly dwarfed by the annual number of "honor killings" of female family members who have strayed sexually (or who have shamed their families by being raped)–a form of murder that is so much a part of traditional Muslim culture that it goes unprosecuted even in relatively moderate Islamic countries like Jordan. In May 2002, Amnesty International reported that in Pakistan at least three honor killings occur every day, and that the perpetrators are usually not even arrested, although their identities tend to be known to family, neighbors, and even the police.
Recently Harvard University creamed it's collective jeans to have Mohammad Khatami, former President of Iran, speak at the Kennedy School. While there he defended the execution of homosexuals.
Khatami, widely considered a reformer in Iran, was often met with applause from the Kennedy School audience…

In response to another question, Khatami also justified his country’s use of capital punishment for acts of homosexuality, but said that the conditions for execution are so strict that they are “virtually impossible to meet.”

“Homosexuality is a crime in Islam and crimes are punishable,” Khatami said. “And the fact that a crime could be punished by execution is debatable.”

The audience responded with silence to his remark.
How do you feel about that Rosie? Is your life "debatable?" Mine isn't.

It's not just gays & lesbians who suffer under Islam either Rosie. A woman risks being branded an adulterer if she makes an accusation of rape. You see rape is acceptable behavior in the Muslim world. "Honor killings" of women for the most trivial reasons is acceptable, after all a man's honor is more important than a woman's life in the Muslim world.

So what will it be Rosie? Do you still honestly see the Lutherans and Baptists down the block as just as big a threat? Do you think radical Islam is worth fighting against or are you content with dhimmitude? I know my answer:
