Criticizing jihad or sharia equals "crucifying our Muslim brothers"--wacko in MI

“Over 2,000 years ago, a crucifixion occurred — Jesus’. Now some 2,000 years later, our Muslim brothers and sisters are being crucified by...Pastor Terry Jones.” -- Rev. Kenneth James Flowers of the Michigan Progressive Baptist Convention.
Now, I don't know a great deal about Terry Jones, but it's been reported that he wanted to protest against jihad--a term common in Islam, the most common meaning of which is "holy war"--and sharia law--the Muslim code that makes women second-class citizens and allows their husbands to divorce them by reciting "I divorce thee" three times.

Don't know about you but I'm with Jones in having less than great admiration for either of these.

So when Ken Flowers of the Michigan Progressive Baptist Convention says Jones is "crucifying our muslim brothers and sisters," I don't see a single grain of truth there. What I do see is hyperbole.

By the carload.

But hey, that's the progressive way.
