Anti-Abortionists Who Advocate Murder?

An article in USA Today shows the darkest side of evangelical Christians: They don't tolerate other points of view, and worse, they think it's OK to threaten those who have other religions, or no religion.

In this case, they're having a disgusting "Burn in Hell" effigy contest, to see who can create the most horrifying video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, or Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, being burned.

This is the worst sort of un-American, anti-Democratic rhetoric, and it's shameful that more and more, religious extremists are turning to these types of idiotic and hateful tricks to get publicity.

It's hard believe that any religious person, much less a Christian, would condone this sort of childish political trick. But then, these are the same people who believe all other Christians are going to burn in Hell too, simply for believing the wrong version of Christianity. If you start with that as a premise, I guess you can justify any crime you like – these "sinners" are going to spend eternity being tortured, so a few torments here on Earth shouldn't matter. Right?

Or maybe, just maybe, we could all respect each other. Is that too much to ask?


  1. Just give into the fact that we have to expect the Spanish Inquistion, because these narrow-minded,tunnel-visioned twits are still living in their version of it. But how can the basic pagan law of "Do as you will, so long as you hurt none," compare to a religion so twisted that its control freak leaders will do anything to make everyone think like they do?

  2. I can't tell if this video is a parody or not, since the actors are smiling and talking about this being a fun event.
    On the other hand, in the documentary Soldiers in the Army of God, an interview with Paul Hill, who murdered an abortion doctor, showed him on death row, smiling and happy and saying he was glad he was going to die this way.
