    Came across this picture this morning, and it raises an interesting point. 2 groups are using 2 books as justification for hate, violence, and intolerance.

    Discuss.

    Or do your usual thing and retreat to insults because you're too stupid to talk about it intelligently. Whichever.

    Please explain how they are using their bibles as excuses for holding a gun. Also, how that relates to hate violence and intolerance.
    If you want intelligent discussion on a MEME maybe first you need to figure out the background of the 2 pictures.

    That picture has been around this group for a long time. It's the same girl in both photos and they were staged. It's total BS. Just another thinly veiled attack against the Right.

    You do understand the difference.
    One is expressing freedom to defend yourself, which is written in the Constitution, and the other is expressing hatred and murder of Jews and Christians.
    Which illustrates the need for the gun in the first place.
    Cops cannot serve and protect anymore, thanks to the Democrat's war on cops.

    I don't see any republican christians defending themselves with guns. I don't see any need for them too. I see them intimidating folks with them sometimes. They also go on the occasional mass murder spree as well as using that book as an excuse to attack folks they don't like.

    Nope, don't really see the difference yet.

    There isn't a difference.

    Republican Christianity = Extremist Islam.

    There's a recent video on YouTube of commentary on a rightwing talk show host storming off of an HLN show because one of the guests said that rightwingers want Christian Sharia, which is true, but the snowflake felt offended and left.

    I was going to make a thread about it, but haven't gotten around to it, as yet.

    You'd have to explain to me why bible and gun seem to go hand in hand so often, that's part of the trouble I have with this.

    The pictures pretty much speak for themselves. Guns, attitudes, and "holy" books.
