From what I know that chalk figure was made in the 17th century during the English civil war to make some sort of political statement, so it's fairly new. Some chalk figures go back thousands of years.

The video makes a good case for secularism but to say that all moderate believers are enablers of fanatics is stretching it a bit far, that's not really how it works.

THAT is how it works. No one would tolerate "moderate Nazis" or a "moderate Al Qaeda"...

I really hope you're not comparing Nazis and Al Qaeda to devout believers in Christianity or Judaism.

Why can't he compare fanatical Muslims to fanatical Christians or Jews?

Also, the Nazis were indeed fanatics and most of them were Christians, I think. Many of the things they were doing were based on religious reasons. Even if Hitler wasn't a Christian, his soldiers were and he motivated them with their religion. The point is, they were a fanatic group and they were motivated by religion, among other things.

(Oh boy, the words 'Nazi', 'Hitler', and 'Jew' in the same post is gonna make the mods all excited.)
