. You are right about Muslim groups. What one would you suggest be listed?
I also don't see many christian groups listed, unless you want to stretch it to include those in name only. I don't see any "normal" christian churches listed.
Wait...are you saying that there ARE muslim groups on there? because if so, I don't see it. Here are the categories from your link, as those identified as "hate groups":
-Radical traditional Catholicism
-Sovereign citizens movement
-White nationalist movement
Silly me, but nowhere in there do I see "Radical muslim group", "Traditional islamist", or anything of the sort. Where are they? Where are the organizations who believe that women can be forcibly circumcised, raped at will, or stoned to death for perceived slights?
Let's see what this liberal organization has to say about anti-gay groups:
Opposition to equal rights for gays and lesbians has been a central theme of Christian Right organizing and fundraising for the past three decades
Hmmm....no mention of the religion of peace followers who actually want to, and do in many places, execute homosexuals. Maybe there's a mention of muslim groups in the "holocaust deniers" category. Let's see:
The main purpose of Holocaust denial has been to rehabilitate the German Nazis’ image as part of a bid to make the ideology of national socialism more acceptable.
Quick, somebody tell Achmedinajad that he's really supporting the Nazis.
The fact is, my point is perfectly valid. I'll challenge you, or anyone else, to find examples of cases where the ACLU or a similar organization challenged the practicing or symbols of Islam. We are all familiar with the "crosses on public ground", "10 commandments int he courthouse", "no prayer in schools" and such. How about this- there have been more than a few cases of teachers not being allowed to wear a cross necklace. Now let's see how many cases there have been not allowing a teacher to wear her religiously mandated head covering.
It is a simple-minded love affair with Islam on the part of the left. Honestly, it reminds me of nothing more than a 15 year old girl who will hang out with a "bad boy" just to spite her parents, because they don't like him. There is no other rational reason, seeing as how Islam is against damn near everything the liberals espouse.
So go forth and search- come back with all these examples of Islam being targeted as Christianity is. Perhaps then I will give what you say a modicum of credence.
