Modern Christianity seems to be practicing the "hate the sin, love the sinner" philosophy.
Islam, on the other hand, is practicing "hate the sin, hate the sinner."
Attempting to argue that the two are equivalent is an exercise in sophistry -- both dishonest and deceptive. Even worse, some of those making the argument believe what they're saying.
How can one argue that the assassination of twelve people over political cartoons is equivalent to anything that's happening in the US? The loony Westboro Baptists are annoying, but they're not killing anyone. And they're denounced by mainstream Christianity. Muslims seem unwilling to speak out against the terrorists in their midst.
Imagine the reaction if Andres Serrano had done a "Piss Muḥammad" rather than a "Piss Christ". He's still alive, at age 64. Had he done a photo of the Prophet suspended in a bottle of urine, he wouldn't be today.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/13/piss-christ-sale_n_5317545.html
At least some of you can take comfort in the fact that no water-boarding was done in the commission of yesterday's crimes.
