We thought we had settled this back in 2010, when PBS’ Tavis Smiley revealed to Ayaan Hirsi Ali that Christians commit terrorist acts “every single day in this country.” Maybe Christians aren’t the most violent of religions, though. Thursday, CNN’s Don Lemon asked his panel, “Is Islam a more violent religion than other faiths?”
As the Daily Caller, which has video of the segment, reports, only Islamic Monthly editor Arsalan Iftikhar disagreed, citing Christian bombings of gay nightclubs and abortion clinics in the United States as proof.
So, let’s settle this: is Islam a more violent religion than other faiths?
@DailyCaller Yes. Next question?

@DailyCaller I am hoping this is rhetorical

@DailyCaller Don Lemon is a complete moron for asking such a question in light of all the recent evidence confirming that very point.

@DailyCaller Sure looks that way. Firm grasp of the obvious, Don.

@DailyCaller They're THE violent religion we face today. That's all that matters.

Still, pretty incendiary language from CNN, though?
