Almost every week, Republicans join a competition to see who can say the most outlandish things, and in the process, they push the envelope on just how insane InsaniTEA can become. I trust that you will believe it, when I tell you that last week was no exception.
Franklin Graham: Don’t persecute Christians. Save that for Muslims.
Franklin Graham visited Fox’s Eric Bolling for a little Obama-hating, Muslim-bashing and general over-the-top fearmongering session this week. The president, they lamented, is being silent on the persecution of Christians everywhere. They were picking up on a theme espoused by Bill O’Reilly last week, and well, every week—the War on Christians and how our secretly Muslim commander-in-chief is A-OK with that.
“Why is Obama so silent on all the atrocities going on against Christians around the world?” Bolling asked Rev. Graham.
Graham said he could not answer the question, and then answered the question by pointing out that Obama is a Muslim.
"His father was a Muslim. His stepfather was a Muslim, he went to Muslim schools growing up, his impressions as a young man came from Islam, not the Christian faith," Graham said. “That might have something to do with it, I don’t know.”
Sounds like he does know, though, doesn’t it? Sounds like he’s pretty cocksure.
The mess in Iraq? All Obama’s fault. Bolling and Graham (two former military commanders, after all) know for a fact that Obama pulled troops out of Iraq too early.
But back to that Muslim-bashing thing.
“As a Christian, I want to emulate Christ,” Graham said. Then in very Christlike fashion, he went after Muslims. “The Muslims want to emulate their prophet Mohammed. Mohammed raped, he murdered, he killed and so we’re seeing the followers of Islam emulate the prophet Mohammed."
Muslims are bad everywhere, according to Graham, but especially here. We need to get rid of them. “We have to be careful of the Muslims in this country. We need to stop the immigration… of Muslims coming to this country from countries that have active terrorist cells."
He’s really got that Christ-like behavior down pat, doesn’t he?..

If I were to emulate Christ, as Graham suggests, I would make a lash of cords and use it to drive out Graham and the rest of the Republican Supply-side pseudo Christians. That’s what Jesus did with the Republicans of His day.
