But we're talking about the here and now, and here's the difference: someone like Eric Robert Rudolf kills in the name of Christianity, is summarily denounced by 99% of Christians, and is hunted, caught, and convicted - largely by Christians. Something like what happened today happens, and some fraction of Muslims cheer it on, a large chunk of Muslims say nothing about it (split between quietly agreeing and approval of what happened and people fearing for their own life should they speak out against it), and a tiny fraction that speak out against it... and placating denoucnements like "we denounce the killing of innocents." Of course, to radical Muslims, non-Muslims are not "innocent."
I'm not particularly religious myself, and I find a lot of preachy Christians pretty damn annoying, and they have little problem trying to control how I live my life... but at least I'm not in fear for it.
Personally it seems more like a liberal media is more likely to point out when republicans do it, ultimately giving the impression that you seem to have.
The both do it wherever and whenever possible. Under current laws, they'd actually be stupid not to.
However, what I'd like to see is a computer algortihm based redistricting that is approved by all parties. The rule of thumb when you cut a cake is that the person who cuts it chooses last... that ensures they make the fairest cuts. Unfortunately you can't apply the same logic here, but you can make it so everyone has to agree... the only way they'd agree is if it were fair.
Then again, I'd like to see instant run off implemented at all levels, including choosing electors in presidential elections... and I'll never see that, either.
Are they not also a significant minority in the US? And yet somehow, they managed to vastly over-represent themselves in STEM fields. Maybe, and this may be just a wild ass guess, but maybe it's because they spent their time focusing on their homework rather than whining about diversity?
And you never stop hearing the white people whining about it! Right? Right!?!? It never stops!
