People miss the boat because they are expectant that all people actually believe themselves equal with others deserving of respect and honor. They do not.
This means that violence against certain radicalized ideological groups is unforgivable, but violence against those that these groups oppose is not only justifiable, it is virtuous.
Understand this and you will understand what you are seeing in our world today. If you oppose certain radicalized ideological groups you are a non-person.
Treating others as you would have them treat you, and believing that all people are endowed with innate importance because they are created in the image of God and are all deserving of respect and honor is a uniquely Christian idea.
The world needs REAL Christianity in order to fix the problems our world is facing. And this starts with fixing ourselves and our families first. Then perhaps we will be fit and ready to help the rest of the world.
