So, Rosie O’Donnell told The View that “radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America.” She is screaming what so many on the atheistic left have been thinking or whispering for some time now.
According to her and most other leftist, we have the makings of a Christian theocracy here in the United States through the presidency of George W. Bush. “The theocrats are running the country” claim countless left-wing blog posts. If the Religious Right is in control and are just as evil as radical Islam, how can Rosie say what she said without being killed? How can Rosie be who she is without being killed?
What does Rosie think of a national leader, while speaking to students at Harvard, claiming that it is “debatable” as to whether homosexuals should be put to death for their sexual orientation. I’m sure she would scream at the top of her lungs about how the evil Christians have forced their morality on this nation. Seperation of church and state has been violated by this speech even being allowed.
Don’t expect Rosie to mention it on The View tomorrow because it was said by Mohammad Khatami, the former “reformist” Iranian president, in a speech entitled “Ethics of Tolerance in the Age of Violence (that has to be the most Orwellian title ever).
He downplayed the death penalty for being gay by saying the conditions for execution are so strict that they are “virtually impossible to meet.” Seems the impossible happens fairly frequently in Iran. Just last year two teenage boys were publicly hanged for homosexuality, after they were held in prison for 14 months and lashed 228 times.
I wait on “conservatives” like Andrew Sullivan and liberals like Rosie O’Donnell to attack these comments with at least as much fervor as they do at allegations of torture from terrorists detainees or citizens supporting the state marriage amendments.
Does Rosie mind these since they are not the cause of evil Christians and don’t really affect American millionaires like her? Love songs on the radio are outlawed. Cats and dogs as pets are outlawed. Christians drinking water from a public well is outlawed. Building churches other than Muslims ones is outlawed. European nations are catching the Sharia law fever.
But don’t worry about that Muslim man hold the box cutter on tha airplane. No, be careful to do something to stop that Christian holding the voting ballot.
