Westboro : Baptists :: ISIS : Muslims

There has been something on my heart for a while, that I just have to share.

Westboro Baptist Church. 

I was raised Baptist, and those people do not serve the same God I was shown as a Baptist. They are extremists. Their leader said “God himself is now America’s terrorist.” I feel ashamed when I hear them called Baptists. I have a sneaking suspicion that my Muslim friends feel the same way when they hear “Islamic State.”

Just like all of the loving, kind Baptists I grew up with are NOTHING like the hate-filled members of Westboro, the Muslims I know (and I assume most of the Muslims around the world) are NOTHING like the violent, hate-filled Muslims of ISIS.

Let’s not make a practice of lumping horrible extremists together with genuine believers. Oh, God. I’d hate to be lumped into the same group as Westboro.
