Conservative Wants to “Bomb Mecca Off the Face of the Earth” to Show Christian Love

Conservatives seem to be taking ISIS’ fundamentalism as a direct challenge to their own these days.

Paranoid Christians Are Utterly Wrong About Syrian Refugees; Here’s What’s Really Going On

I know I’m not alone. Unfortunately, encountering such xenophobic ignorance is probably inevitable. So let’s take a moment to count the ways these assertions are undeniably, indescribably, quantifiably wrong by pointing out what the facts actually reveal.
