Food for thought.
Really? Are you people Serious? One is a terrorist, the other a strongly religious man. No I do not agree with his ideas and options but to post something so… so idiotic. There is a fucking difference, stop hating on Christianity and complaining about them being ‘bigoted’ and ‘narrow minded’ if you’re going to be so stupid as to post something like this.
That didn’t take long, I knew there would be someone who would reply like this.
You realize that while bin Laden was a terrorist to us, he was a devoutly religious man and believed that religion should rule over secular law. He was a hero to many on “his side”
What is so “stupid” about drawing a parallel. What’s “stupid” is jumping to an immediate conclusion without looking at the point the picture is making.
It doesn’t say that Rick Santorum is the same as bin Laden, it says that he holds the same belief that religion should rule over secular law.
This basically a reminder that this is always dangerous, even within Christianity there are disagreements about how to interpret the bible, what morals to follow and how. Christianity is terribly splintered.
Rick Santorum not only wants to push religious beliefs into law, he wants to push his particular brand of religious beliefs. Listen to his statements about sexuality and contraception.
Not everyone is the same religion as him, hell, not everyone is the same kind of Christian he is. A lot of people don’t hold these same beliefs about sex.
He’s not just a “deeply religious person”. He doesn’t believe contraception should be used. He doesn’t believe people should have sex unless it’s for procreation. He wants to outlaw abortion. Add to this his disgusting position on gays and gay rights.
Of course someone who doesn’t step back and think about the implications of outlawing contraceptives, or even making them difficult to obtain is going to think this comparison was stupid.
What if the rest of the US had restrictive abortion laws that many conservative states have or are trying to have pushed through.
Anyone who doesn’t see how his stance on these things are downright un-american and dangerous is being extremely narrow minded and not looking at this from all angles.
While the man isn’t a terrorist, some of his pro-life supporters sure as hell don’t see a problem with what amounts to terrorist acts on abortion providers and the gay community.
The man is an extremist. His views on contraception and sex are extreme views he would like to see everyone else follow, that if he had his way, everyone else would be forced to follow.
