Some people like to compare the wackos at Westboro Baptist Church (the vile "God Hates Fags" church) to islamic extremists. It is a disingenuous comparison, as WBC, although disgusting in its ideology, is nonviolent. No one takes them seriously.
Islamic extremists live by violence and intimidation. 'Moderate' muslims pretend to dismiss them as insignificant (try telling that to their victims).
Just for the sake of argument, if you could compare the two, can anyone show me even ONE instance of muslims standing up to muslim extremists the way these Christians are standing up to Westboro Baptist?
Hundreds of protesters from the mountain state worked to cover up the Westboro group's signs that said "God Hates West Virginia" and "Thank God For Dead Miners."
Brittany Bailey, whose father is a miner from Pineville, said "Just because they passed away doesn't mean God is punishing us. God is love. He's love, not hate. This is stupid."
Some even did a spontaneous dance to "Country Roads" to take attention away from the group.
