Why do you think that the Tsarnaev brothers somehow represent Muslims, but the Westboro Church doesn't represent Christians?

Because the VAST MAJORITY of Christians aren't like the Westboro nuts, and nearly every Christian of every denomination denounces the Westboro nuts (as I'm doing now), whereas a MAJORITY of Muslims (see list of terrorist activities around the world that I previously posted) who are like the Tsarnaevs OR who don't say a single word AGAINST the Tsarnaevs do represent Islam.

The other day a man had a table in front of Target where he extolled the benefits of Islam. Since this was after the Boston Marathon, I was shocked he had the nerve to set up such a table. I point blank asked him, "do you denounce the actions of the two brothers who planted bombs at the Boston Marathon?" I spent a few minutes engaging him. He went round and round like the music--just as you always do--but would not denounce their actions.

I rest my case and p-box you at the same time. Buh bye.
