When MSNBC’s Chris Hayes tried to argue that the man who shot three people at a Planned Parenthood office in Colorado was no different than the radical Islamists who slaughtered 14 people in California, because the killers were following their religion, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said it was not the same because Jesus never ordered people to kill but Muhammed did.

On the Dec. 9 edition of MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, the host said, “Why is this any different?  You, understandably, as a Christian, as someone of the faith, right, you look at what happened at Planned Parenthood and say, ‘that’s not the faith that I believe in.’”

Rep. King answered,  “What Planned Parenthood is doing [aborting babies] is not the faith that I believe in.”

“But Jesus never ordered anyone to be killed,” said King, “and He never raised his hand to injure anyone specifically, but Muhammed did.”

“There’s a big difference in this,” said the congressman.  “They’re [radical Muslims] carrying on the traditions that are centuries old.”

Back on Nov. 27, Robert Dear went to a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colo., where he allegedly shot and killed two civilians and one police officer. He has been charged with first-degree murder.

On Dec. 2, Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik targeted the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health, where they shot and killed 14 people and wounded 22 other people. Farook and Malik were later killed in a shootout with police. Both terrorists had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State.
