A Question of Enemy Identification

A few days ago, as part of the holiday bonding ritual observed in families that embrace both conservatives and liberals, I pondered again the befuddling (to me) concept that "radical" Christians are just as dangerous as "radical" Muslims.

Despite considerable effort on my part over the years, I have been unable to grasp the reasoning behind the argument that being invited to a fellowship breakfast or being asked to read another denomination's religious tract is a grievous insult generally indicating a borderline willingness to serve as chief examiner at a hearing of the Spanish Inquisition. When the topic of Islam comes up, however, it seems that the liberal side of the clan has acquired dozens of close Muslim friends who are utterly peaceable and in desperate need of verbal defense from "belligerent" Christians.

Just like in the following video, which I found at Jihad Watch.

It really comes down to a question of enemy identification.

And the real enemy has stood up.
