The Difference Between Christian and Islamic Fundamentalism

Many people, including former US Presidential candidate Al Gore, have compared Christian fundamentalism to Islamic fundamentalism.

 

But there’s a huge difference, as illustrated by this statement by American evangelist Pat Robertson:

“The President has backed away from [the road map] but if he were to touch Jerusalem, he’d lose all evangelical support,” Robertson said. “Evangelicals would form a third party” because, though people “don’t know about” Gaza, Jerusalem is an entirely different matter.

In other words: “if you do x, then we’ll stop supporting you, and will run against you in elections”. As opposed to “if you do x, we’ll slice the head off this hostage.”

 

Ain’t democracy grand?
