It’s Time to Start Calling Evangelicals What They Are: The American Taliban
JC Weatherby

I agree that (overly) religious people in politics is a big problem. BUT, that said, there is no comparison between evangelicals and Taliban. Evangelicals are not hanging homosexuals from trees or light poles, evangelicals are not chopping heads of people who are “unbelievers”, and they are not supporting and harboring terrorists like Al-Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden. Many evangelicals are a little bit backwards on some issues(like the rights of homosexuals and lbgt people, on education and science and in particular evolution), but no, this comparison with the Taliban is not very smart. Yes Christian fundamentalism is bad, but islamic extremism is 100 times worse at least.
