    Free speech. Same reason white supremacist message boards and Ku Klux Klan marches are allowed to proceed uninhibited.

    I guess I am just surprised that in this era of what LT says are temporary emergency measures used to monitor everyone, a pro-enemy tv channel hasn't had everyone involved with it ripped apart by investigations.

    Because evangelicals aren't blowing up and mowing down their prohibitions.

    Radical evangelics have not resorted to violence?

    Well how about that.

    I think Islam is still a young man's religion. The rapidly aging Christian population is not mostly of the age to go spree shooting. Although there seems to be a heavy Christian influence in the violent aspects of the pro life movement.

    Maybe you can find something but it's pretty rare. Only thing that comes to mind for me is some incidents with abortion clinics a few years back. I don't think Evangelicals have a word for jihad.

    Get real. Hardly classified as Evangelicals. Does anyone really want to compare Evangelicals with extremest Muslim terrorist? Other than just chain yanking of course.

    I would say that you could describe Klansmen as extremist Christians. Who were quite capable of terrorism. I wouldnt equate mainstream Christianity with the KKK, any more than I'd equate Islam with ISIS.
