Holly Hobby Lobby: New Face of American Taliban

Viral vitriol: Religious fanatic exposed. Social media troll and conservative darling Holly Hobby Lobby is being compared to an Islamic terrorist after posing for a picture looking like a Christian terrorist.

Holly Fisher (@HollyRFisher), aka  Holly Hobby Lobby, wants the head of liberals to explode; however, her most recent attempt is backfiring, and instead exposing the striking parallels between Islamic and Christian  extremists.

In a simple but elegant blog post entitled “Let’s hold up a mirror!” PZ Myers uses Holly’s striking selfie to illustrates the striking similarities between Christian and Islamic extremism, and the romance with religious violence both types of extremists seem to share.

Variations of images comparing the two religious extremists are winding their way across social media.

Conservatives claim the comparison is not fair, but the eyes do not deceive.

Perhaps the only thing more dangerous and destructive than religious extremism, is violent religious extremism cloaked in the mask of pseudo patriotism.

While Holly Hobby Lobby is just a social media clown out for attention, she represents a dangerous strand of Christian fundamentalism that enjoys flirting with, if not threatening, real violence.

How long until the Christian extremists stop flirting with violence and start shooting?
