Michael Flynn thinks Islam is a "cancer"

In his 2016 book, The Field of Fight, Flynn characterized U.S. counter-terrorism efforts as “a world war against a messianic mass movement of evil people.” In a speech earlier this year, he called Islam “a cancer” and “a political ideology. It definitely hides behind this notion of it being a religion.”

The exact same thing can be said of the evangelical christian right, for aren't they also a messianic movement of evil people seeking global dominion?
And what of Neo-Hasidic Renewal Judaism? And what about..
It is difficult, in indeed, to identify any faith of this world that does not have within its ranks some sects tainted by extremism.
Wasn't it just about this time last year that Pope Francis said, in effect, that fundamentalism is not just an Islamic problem, it is also something which exists in all religions, including the Catholic church? I believe his words were "It is a disease of all religions. We Catholics, we have a few, even many fundamentalists.
They believe they know absolute truth and corrupt others. I can say this because this is my church."
So, within context, what was Flynn's real meaning?
Also worth asking, within context, what was the real meaning of this article from The Intercept?
Given the generally hysterical slant and sensationalism appended on to almost all coverage of everything Trump, it becomes increasingly difficult to take items such as this posting seriously. Measured deliberation is hardly the hallmark of what passes for journalism these days. The incendiary polemics serve no real constructive purpose. Sam, you're continuing to plumb new depths, to the point that by comparison Matt Drudge is beginning to seem like Edward R. Murrow---you ought to be ashamed. Some of your readers are getting pretty tired of this idiocy what ever happened to the old Sam?
