Christianity and Islam...Respect

It is disgusting that any American would show their stupidity so outrageously by disrespecting the memory of a U.S. soldier killed in Iraq.

NASHVILLE, April 11 — As dozens of mourners streamed solemnly into church to bury Cpl. David A. Bass, a fresh-faced 20-year-old marine who was killed in Iraq on April 2, a small clutch of protesters stood across the street on Tuesday, celebrating his violent death.

"Thank God for Dead Soldiers," read one of their placards. "Thank God for I.E.D.'s," read another, a reference to the bombs used to kill service members in the war. To drive home their point — that God is killing soldiers to punish America for condoning homosexuality — members of the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., a tiny fundamentalist splinter group, kicked around an American flag and shouted, if someone approached, that the dead soldiers were rotting in hell.

Story to be found here.

These people are supposed to be Christians? They would celebrate the deaths of our soldiers because we are not as narrow minded of a country as they are personally?

Laws are being enacted in several states to keep protesters at a decent distance from funerals like this...about time. These people obviously have no respect for life of any kind and kind of re-enforces the fact that extremists operate in all religion.

Christianity is an excuse for many to do the unthinkable. It can be callous, disrespectful, cruel, spiteful and extremely narrow minded. It can be used as reasoning for murder, abuse, torture, thievery and any other ill behaviour and also used for justification of such.

The Great Crusade to make everyone on the planet believe and behave as you do...not a decent legacy in any sense of the word.

I have never had anyone try to shove Islam down my throat as in Christianity. Islam is, in fact, a very peaceful religion.

It seems that Islam is actually more respectful of life than what the Christian of America has turned out to be.

America's disgrace looms even larger.
