Hayes Brown at ThinkProgress reports on something that Mike Huckabee just said:
“I know we’re not supposed to say anything unkind about Islam,” the former Arkansas governor said. “I mean, it’s politically incorrect. I get that. But can someone explain to me why it is that we tiptoe around a religion that promotes the most murderous mayhem on the planet in their so-called ‘holiest days'...You know, if you’ve kept up with the Middle East, you know that the most likely time to have an uprising of rock throwing and rioting comes on the day of prayer on Friday. So the Muslims will go to the mosque, and they will have their day of prayer, and they come out of there like uncorked animals — throwing rocks and burning cars..."
Huckabee, of course, is an ordained Southern Baptist minister. And what he just said is so typical of Christians. On Sundays in their churches, Christians are always like, "Jesus Christ, tra la la, he's so special, everyone should be nice to everybody," but then you put them on the radio or cable news and they're all stereotyping 1.6 billion people and calling everybody who practices another religion less than human. I get so sick of these fucking stupid Christians, spouting stupid shit about people they don't know. What kind of a fucking asshole would stereotype 1.6 billion people based on a few seconds of out-of-context footage of a couple idiots they saw on the internet? A Christian, that's who.
