That is deplorable. I'm sure that outside of a few fundamentalists, this type of behavior is on the rare side but boy is it really fucked up behavior...

I wonder if it is easier for people to see how ridiculous the beliefs and dogma that this religion was founded on because of how recently it was established. Maybe 1700 years or so ago when Constantine conspired to end Islam and replace it with his new version of Christianity , people were equally outraged and suspicious of what they were being fed. Who knows? I can tell you I will not be voting to elect anyone who shares their beliefs though.
