Graphic video and stills of gay men being thrown from a tall building to their deaths by ISIS have gone viral this week, giving us the chance to practice the White House’s approved wording in such situations. That is, the brutality and intolerance on display isn’t an example of radical Islam in practice; rather, the gruesome executions are an example of “violent extremism based on a warped view of Islam.” It’s complicated.

Wow, check out how many #GayLivesMatter demonstrators turned out to quietly protest the killings.

We’re not sure how George W. Bush, Guantanamo Bay, or the Charlie Hebdo cartoons managed to promote this warped view of Islam, but it’s time for James Taylor to intervene as soon as possible.
