Murder Of 3 Muslims Was Hate Crime Against Christians, Says Nutbag Christian
Never one to miss the chance to make a tragedy just a little more awful, Colorado wingnut preacher/state legislator Gordon "Disgraced former chaplain 'Dr. Chaps'" Klingenschmitt has decided that the terrible murder of three Muslim students in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, proves that Christians are in mortal danger in U.S. America.
It's not that Klingenschmitt has retroactively baptized them or anything -- he'll leave that heresy to the Mormons, thank you very much. No, the proof for him that shooter Craig Stephen Hicks was really secretly out to kill Christians is that Hicks had posted this image on his Facebook page just days before the killings:
Hicks said that radical Muslims are like radical Christians, ergo, said an actual member of the Colorado House of Representatives, Hicks actually murdered Deah Shaddy Barakat, Yusor Abu-Salha, and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha "because they were like Christians." Yes, of course there's video:
We're not sure if, in declaring the murdered Muslim students to be "just like Christians," Klingenschmitt is merely making a hell of a stretch to prove that American Christians are the most victimized people in Creation, or whether we should celebrate this as an impressive breakthrough for the ecumenical movement. If he calls for a halt to the bombing of his like-Christian brothers in ISIS, we'll know for sure.
