The Republican party has discovered a new issue that is becoming the most important way to fight terrorists. President Obama made a speech in which he urged that when confronting the issue of terrorism, we should make a distinction between a terrorist and the religion of that person. “We must never accept the premise put forward because it is a lie, not should we grant terrorists the religious legitimacy they seek. They are not religious leaders, they are terrorists. We are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who pervert religion.” Naturally, these words upset the folks at Fox News and members of the Republican party who are convinced that each and every Muslim is a friend of terrorists.
If one’s religion is to be cited when terrorists go into action, then:
1. How about citing the CHRISTIAN GERMAN NAZIS?
2. How about citing the CHRISTIAN FASCIST ITALIANS?
3. How aout citing the CATHOLIC SPANISH INQUISITION?
