There IS NO DIFFERENCE between what he said and what Muslim extremists have said to people in Iraq. Now this foolishness of liberal vs conservative, Democrat vs Republican will cause some to continue to play partisan politics and attempt to excuse his comments. But he professes to be a Christian. If so he needs to stop trying to mix Christ with his politics because it doesn't work. Either love them as you love yourself as a Christian and leave it at that. Or let the government do what the government does and leave it at that. But there is NOTHING, no matter how anyone attempts to qualify his words, of Christ in convert them or kill them. It was disgusting. It might be okay for a politician and someone mired in partisan politics. But it's not okay for God's people.
