Dark Coleus: American Religious Conservatives and Islamic Extremists. Two peas in a pod: Both worship the God of Abraham (although neither want to admit this) Both believe their governments should be founded in religious beliefs (ex. US is founded on Christian beliefs) Both believe more guns are better than fewer guns Both believe homosexuality is a sin and should not be tolerated Both believe prayer and religious teaching should be in all schools (either by legislation or force) Both believe the US has become too liberal and action must be taken Both believe feminists must be controlled or eliminated. (Femenazis, I believe Rush calls them?) Both believe Hollywood is dangerous Both believe secular education is dangerous and leads to liberalism Both believe the ends justify the means (“enhanced" interrogation) Both have similar holy books that preach love and hate. Their followers tend to focus on the hate. Both hate each other Both increase their numbers by indoctrinating children. Both believe in Jesus. One thinks he is the Son of God (or is God or a part of three Gods…), the other thinks he is a prophet sent from God. Both hate atheists Both hate Obama and liberals Both require their soldiers to swear an oath their God (which is odd since he is the same god…) Both want to erase history. Islamists bulldoze ancient ruins and artifacts. Christians claim dinosaur fossils were planted by Satan and the Civil War was not about slavery. Both cherry pick portions of their holy books to believe. Both have serious issues with the definitions of love and hate. When you boil it down, the only real difference between the two is bacon.
