Hero or Villain?

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS or ISIL) is terrible and evil because of the way they have been destroying sacred monuments and holy sites.

King Josiah is a hero of the faith because of the way he pulled down and destroyed the high places and altars in Israel.  – “Even the altar at Bethel, the high place made by Jeroboam son of Nebat, who had caused Israel to sin--even that altar and high place he demolished. He burned the high place and ground it to powder, and burned the Asherah pole also.” 2 Kings 23: 15

ISIS or ISIL is disgusting and vile because they behead Christians.

The prophet Elijah is a hero of the faith because he hunted down and killed the priests of Ba’al.  “Then Elijah said, “Capture the prophets of Baal! Don’t let any of them run away!” The people captured all the prophets. Then Elijah led them down to the Kishon Valley, where he killed them.” 1 Kings 18: 40.

What is the standard of our outrage?
