Nonie Darwish and Pat Robertson condemn religious extremism shock! Oh wait, it's Islamic extremism, not the good kind.

Another piece of filth from BullShitter, aka Uncle Jimmy. Here he links to a video clip by Nonie Darwish, who hates Muslims as only an ex-Muslim who wants to convert them all to Christianity can. She is guesting on a nasty little piece of hate TV by Pat Robertson (who else?)

When I read her list of "Reasons why sharia law is bad for all societies", I want to point out that the Bible (remember the Bible?) mandates death for apostates(Deuteronomy 17:2-5), as well as for gays (Leviticus 20:13) and adulterers(Deuteronomy 22:22). (The state of Michigan only permits life imprisonment nowadays for adultery, while in Wisconsin it is a Class 1 felony. In the US military it can still lead to a court-martial.) In the Bible, the Israelites are instructed to kill every man, woman and child among their (infidel) enemies (1 Samuel 15:3; also Joshua 6:21).

And according to Jesus, all those laws still apply (Matthew 5:17-18).

But, you say, most Christians (outside Michigan and Wisconsin) don't do that kind of thing now. Hmm, well, maybe not. But most Muslims don't go around stoning apostates either. So your point is?

Ah, shoot, Let's leave it to Jed Bartlett in The West Wing to deliver a fitting riposte to Nonie Darwish, another jumped-up member of the Ignorant Tight-Ass Club:

Question: name a country in the Middle East where modesty patrols make sure women are properly dressed; where women have to sit in the back of buses while the front is reserved for men; where Christians are spat on; and where breaches of religious observance attract stoning.

You'll never guess.
