‘Radical Christianity’ as Threatening as Radical Islam?
GOP USA ^ | September 14, 2006 | Bobby Eberle

Posted on 09/14/2006 10:05:11 AM PDT by beaversmom

Ulcers are hopefully growing in the collective stomachs of ABC executives as they learn just how out of touch and irresponsible Rosie O’Donnell is. Now, as a member of Barbara Walters’ chat show “The View,” O’Donnell has a new forum to spew her left wing rants, and hopefully viewers will send her back to the unemployment line. In a discussion of the events of September 11, 2001, O’Donnell acknowledged that Islamic terrorists killed close to 3,000 innocent people. She then said that “radical Christianity” is just as threatening as radical Islam.

Addressing the 9-11 anniversary and talking about security, co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck noted that since the attacks of 2001, America has not been attacked at home. “We have not been attacked,” she said. “We are on the offense here.”

O’Donnell, in her infinite wisdom, then interrupted and said that America was attacked “not by a nation” and as a result of Islamic terrorists killing 3,000 innocent Americans, we “invaded two countries and killed innocent people in their countries.”

First, I guess Rosie forgets the fact that Afghanistan, with its Taliban leadership, was the training ground for al Qaeda — the group directly responsible for killing thousands of Americans. That the Taliban sponsored, housed, and protected al Qaeda fighters and leaders. President Bush told the Taliban to turnover al Qaeda leaders or face the consequences. They refused and America took action against our attackers.

Second, America, in response to the attacks, focused its attacks on the Taliban and al Qaeda. Civilian causalties are tragic during the course of war, but, unfortunately, they occur. The point is that we did not target innocent civilians for butchering. This is exactly what radical Islamists having been doing with their attacks.

Hasselbeck noted that the funding of radical islam is widespread. O’Donnell again interrupted and said, “Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America.”

O’Donnell then added that Iraq and Afghanistan “never threatened to kill us.” What?!?!? Earth to O’Donnell! The purpose of al Qaeda, a group interwoven into the ruling Taliban, is the destruction of the American way of life. In Iraq, on numerous occasions, Saddam Hussein threatened America.

O’Donnell is just plain wrong. In addition to being wrong, her comment on Christianity is scary. At the same time those on the left are telling people to “understand” the views of the terrorists, we see more instances where they are bashing Christianity with impunity. We can’t say anything bad about people who want to kill us… we can’t profile… we can’t do what it takes to protect ourselves… but we sure can bash Christians. What is wrong with this picture?

It is my hope that ABC will learn that things will not change with O’Donnell. If they want to keep main-stream American viewers, O’Donnell needs to go. I’m sure she can find a good spot on Air America where no one is listening.

You have to admit she has a point. All those Christians walking into mosques and detonating bombs strap to their backs is out of control. ;o)

Huh, who would have thought? Radical Christianity? You mean like adhering resolutely, unequivically, and steadfastly to the first and second commandment with no alternative??

First Commandment: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.

Second Commandment: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

Yeah, dude, that IS radical!!

The article says -- "In a discussion of the events of September 11, 2001, O’Donnell acknowledged that Islamic terrorists killed close to 3,000 innocent people. She then said that “radical Christianity” is just as threatening as radical Islam."

I said this earlier, on another thread --




Yeah, even here on this FreeRepublic forum, so-called "radical Christians" are feared and are treated as the "enemy".

"Radical Christian" is a code phrase meaning someone who actually believes that there is a God, that God reveals Himself in the Bible, that Jesus Christ is the one way to the Father (as Jesus said, Himself) and that God will do what He says He will do.

In short -- a "Radical Christian" is someone who actually believes the Bible.

That, is apparently, to be feared by all sorts of people, worldwide and in this country. It's so feared that you're hard pressed to find anyone in the Democrat Party who will admit to believing the Bible is true and should be listened to and followed (by means of the Salvation offered by Jesus Christ). The ACLU will fight all day long to keep that message locked up behind closed doors, given out only on Sundays and Wednesdays. Atheists and Agnostics will scream that they are being "imposed" upon, if anything "righteous" is made into law. Politicians prefer to have prayers to Allah, than to have anything mentioning Jesus Christ. They'll support Islam in the United States before they'll support Christianity.

Is there any question as to where this country is headed?




I just got through talking with someone (in a very long thread) how Christians are "anethema" to the Constitution of the United States (if they *really believe* the Bible). And they are *more concerned* about Christians than radical and fascist Muslims.

Quite amazing, actually -- to hear it here, on FreeRepublic.

Star Traveler

Ah, the beast has not changed form ... I'd have been surprised if she hadn't issued a slam. Perhaps she can review the great religious thoughts of former Gov. Jesse Ventura for comfort.

Since the Freepers were so successful in their boycotts of the Ditsy Chicks (as mentioned in a previous thread); why not boycott the View...Of course, that would have to mean that we watched it before...

She'll soon be taking her poison over to radio when she joins two other geniuses, Hanoi and Steimen, for a talk radio show. It'll no doubt be praised as "edgy" and "provocative," right before it turns into outright whoring for the DNC leading up to the November elections. One more failure for the great white lesbian whale.

Radical liberalism has killed more people in the last 40 years in the US alone, then religion has in the entire history of the planet.

Abortion has killed 45m babies in the US alone. Who knows how many overseas.

If some religious war has killed that many, I've never heard of it.

The irony is that should the islomofacists win she would be among the first to lead to the slaughter house, along with the other Hollywood Liberals. The Christians would probably be tolerated, though 2nd class, while the Atheists & Liberals would be dead.

She's right - if you're looking at the 'threat' she sees.

Long before Ann Coulter's latest book, it's been clear that modern liberalism/socialism is a faith-based philosophy different from a 'religion' only in that they believe there is no higher being than humans (and therefore, that whatever makes humans feel good about themselves is the highest 'good' for society). As a result, Christianity, in America, is 'just as threatening' to their faith as Islam.

After all, what are the lives of a few thousand people she didn't even know, as measured against her 'right' to be an out-of-the-closet lesbian?

You get the prize for the right answer to what motivates a perverted female of the species. Rosie's attack is nothing more than a rant against those that oppose sexual deviant behavior.

Between Baba Wawa's insistence that her dog speaks to her and the weird choice of bringing this hateful wretch onto the View it would seem the show is doomed to spiral into oblivion sooner rather than later.

HUH?
Those ABC execs must not have seen/heard a replay.
Rosie got a hearty applause with her punch-the-Christians line.

She's ratings gold and that and green are the only colors that matter to ABC.

Personally, I got MAD at the applause.
Assuming that was taped in NYC and many audience members were
New Yorkers, I know their response to the song "Have You Forgotten?"
"Forgotten what?"

Was that canned laughter? Or a mix of audience and canned? I never watch the show but I heard the exchange on radio. My first thought, like yours, was how depressing it was that so many people agreed with her. But the laughter didn't sound quite right. It sounded canned. Do you know?

Yeah, but you have to keep in mind that the audience screening process for "The View" involves taking an IQ test that proves that you are:

a) dumber than a gnat

and

b) slightly more intelligent than someone in the audience of Bill Maher's show.
