    Link: Christians Protect Muslims During A Prayer - This scene took place early this week in Egypt. Maybe there`s hope for all of us after all...

    "huh?" the muslims are praying during the riots, and those who do not need to pray (most likely christians) are protecting them by forming a ring around them...

    The exact events in that photo are not clear.
    Here is how I interpret it { and this is just as likely and just as valid as the description }

    Extremist Muslims take chistrian arabs prisoner and force them to their knees in preparation of beheading them.

    Video of the ring earlier.

    The reason they`re there seems to be that those are the Muslims that formed human shields around them at their Christmas in January, but that`s not 100% confirmed yet.

    The picture`s source is by a girl in Egypt called Navine Zaki (Confirmed).

    When I say it`s not 100% confirmed, Ahram news was saying so, but I can`t find a backup source, and I couldn`t tell if it was an offhand comment about "Egyptians" as a whole having each others backs Christian/Muslims alike, or if it`s two specific groups helping each other out.

    Language is unclear.

    Christians protecting Muslims in the Egypt = FOOLS

    It is not illegal to be Christian in Egypt, but it is illegal to convert away from Islam.

    Religious Registration In Egypt

    Why would anyone protect the very people that keep you downtrodden? It`d be like me saving George Bush`s sorry ass. By that I mean I wouldn`t lift a finger... well, maybe 1 finger in particular.

    That`s because, unlike you, they`re good people who aren`t hate filled monsters. You see when they, the Christians, decided to help the Muslim worshipers they weren`t thinking about politics, laws, or anything too deep. They simply saw their fellow man in need of help and like true Christians helped without question. It`s the golden rule. This is a beautiful scene and should set an example to Christians worldwide to how we treat each other.

    The world isn`t fair but that doesn`t give you the right to be an ass.

    I`d like to see this type of Religious post more often! Despite what the `ultra-liberals` may want you to believe, the vast majority of us are not ignorant, fundamentalist, hypocritical nutjobs who try to force our beliefs upon others, they`re just the loud minority, and by focusing primarily on that sort of religious person, you`re giving them all the attention (that they crave so much) and encouraging them to keep acting in that way.

    Sure, it`s nice to have something we can bash that unites us all, but lets try to balance it out with the good side of many religious people, and there`s plenty of good out there. If the world, instead of focusing on denouncing the bad, actually tried praising the good for once, maybe we`d see more of it. And that goes for any group in my opinion, not just religious people.

    Enabling your enemy is worse than doing nothing.

    elHadji - "the whole point of these protests are to bring people their human rights back"

    Yeah, `cause Arab or Muslim nations are big on human rights. The have such a good track recrod at that sort of thing.


    And on a personal note, I don`t think they are praying... I think they are ducking the molitov kocktails. {ha! beat the censor-bot with Kocktail}

    No, I`m saying that if a group of people have failed repeatedly in the human rights arena you don`t promote them to run your own country.

    It`s like hiring the least qualified person. We only do that in the U.S. and we usually make them president. lol

    Both religions teach peace and harmony. You cannot judge an entire religion on a few evil individuals. That is like saying that Americans are all responsible for war crimes in Iraq and Afganistan. Religion is just an excuse to invade and pillage another country, if it is not religion then it is oil or diamonds. It is mankind who is evil, not religion.

    "muslims are obligated to build a worldwide system of sharia law, love to beat their wives (treat them as property, not people) and they refuse to think progressively. that whole site should`ve been bombed to protect the freedoms of free thinkers."

    Christians are obligated to build a worldwide system of Old Testament law, love to kill their wives and children (if they are disrespectful) and refuse to think progressively.

    See how dumb it sounds when you focus on idiotic ultra-conservative views?

    I`m a registered democrat. old testament laws are outdated and silly (as well as new testament IMO) and most laws in christian society protect women and children from domestic violence.

    thusly, being a left-wing atheist who operates more on facts than personal agenda, how does anything i say sound conservative?

    Then you of all people should know that *modern*, Western Islam is no more like Old Testament-era brutality than modern Christianity is. Of course there are exceptions, countries in the middle east that exemplify what fearmongers see as the dangers of Islam, but on the other hand nobody`s using Turkey as a model for Christianity.

    They`re "holding hands" to form a human chain to protect those who pray. Whoever equates this with homosexuality is dummer-than-drat!

    ALSO: it`s awfully nice of Egyptian Christians to protect Muslims during prayer after a terror bombing of a Christian church killed so many Christinas just a couple of weeks ago... good for them!

    I`d like to see this type of Religious post more often! Despite what the `ultra-liberals` may want you to believe, the vast majority of us are not ignorant, fundamentalist, hypocritical nutjobs who try to force our beliefs upon others, they`re just the loud minority,

    True enough...but guess who ends up with power in a theocracy? It`s not the quiet, decent theists with strange but harmless beliefs *who don`t want power over other people and don`t seek it*. It`s the dangerous fundamentalist whackjobs who do want power over people and do seek it. Islam and Christianity are both power-orientated religions founded on force and demanding utter obedience, so they both lend themselves very well to use by those people.

    And their first targets are often people like you.

    For all the people calling Zarteck out for being a troll, I have to say he`s actually kind of right. Take a look at the comments of past religious posts, they`re filled with unjustified hatred for anyone with any form of religious belief at all, regardless of how they go about pursuing that belief.

    "LOLZ J00 BELEEVE IN A FAIRYTALE SKYWIZZARD UR SO ST00P1D LAWL!!!1"

    Of course, most people show a bit more intelligence in their posts, but the same sentiment is there.

    And the funny thing is, a lot of those people seem to think they`re fighting the `good fight` against the intolerance and hatred of religion, while in actuality all they`re doing is adding more intolerance and hatred to the pile.

    That`s why I suggested earlier we should all start focusing on the good side of each group, and maybe we`d encourage that good to flourish and spread, instead of allowing fear and hatred to grow.

    I`ve also read that there`s discrimination against Christianity in Egypt. So this picture doesn`t make much sense. I`m having some serious doubts.

    To conclude: this article is to be taken with a massive grain of salt. Also Eygpt isn`t as lovey-dovey as people think it is.

    So. They don`t do it with your money so what do you care. How does them building something with their money hurt you?

    "I don`t have a tax-free status."
    Religious people have tax free status? I don`t think so.

    "I don`t wear elaborate clothing."
    WTF?

    "I don`t spread disinformation around."
    You just did when you claimed religious people have tax-free status.

    "I don`t abdicate discrimination and ignorance."
    Nothing wrong with discrimination when its justified by fact.

    "I don`t impede scientific progress."
    Fair enough, but religious people are also more kind and honest, so says this SCIENTIFIC study.

    "So. They don`t do it with your money so what do you care. How does them building something with their money hurt you?"
    They get their money through donations and then spend it on refurbishing said massive building. I don`t really care what theists donate their money to, but I don`t like scams.

    "Religious people have tax free status? I don`t think so."
    Churches do. They take prime estate and don`t pay taxes. Isn`t that odd?

    "but religious people are also more kind and honest, so says this SCIENTIFIC study."
    I`m sensing some massive holes in that "study" but here`s mu rebuttal: theists need the threat of eternal hellfire and the reward of heaven to do good? Doesn`t seem so "kind" and "honest" to me.

    "Rights are superstitious"
    Is that so? So marrying someone you love isn`t a right? Adopting a child isn`t a right? Having an abortion isn`t a right?

    "What is a right? And who determines what they are?"
    That`s going into semantics, which isn`t pertinent to this discussion. Nice try though.

    So you`re making the massive leap that "believing" in rights is the same as believing in a god? That`s just silly.

    My original point was that you were wrongfully berating "gbrzeatetee" that he spent his time wastefully and was no better than theists. So I just made some points that show how much time and resources having a religion around takes.

    It`s not a "scam" if nobody profits from it. You may disagree with their beliefs, but nobody is scamming them.

    "Churches do. They take prime estate and don`t pay taxes. Isn`t that odd?"
    And? Almost all non-profit organizations have tax-free status. The people who belong to those organizations, however, pay taxes just like the rest of us.

    We meet again. I guess my previous owning wasn`t powerful enough. Fortunately I have plenty of ammo left.

    "It`s not a "scam" if nobody profits from it. You may disagree with their beliefs, but nobody is scamming them."
    So, when a church preaches that if you do not live up to god`s expectations you get burned in eternal hellfire and tempts you with heaven and then waves a donation plate, that`s not a scam? If I went around selling snake oil, that`s not a scam? I don`t think that all churches have ill intentions, but you gotta admit, it seems like a scam.

    "And? Almost all non-profit organizations have tax-free status. The people who belong to those organizations, however, pay taxes just like the rest of us."

    "You just owned yourself there."
    How so? Do you think retarded people should be able to become surgeons? If not, you are discriminating. But since, by definition, its a fact that retarded people aren`t intelligent enough to perform surgery, discrimination is appropriate. Exactly as I said.

    "theists need the threat of eternal hellfire and the reward of heaven to do good? Doesn`t seem so "kind" and "honest" to me."
    So? All humans respond to reward and punishment.

    So if your neighbour discriminates, it`s okay? Sounds perfectly reasonable to me! Pointing out the flaws in organised religion and its people in is discriminating against ALL theists? Oh no! I`m sorry!

    Rights do serve a function. Religion on the other hand has little to no function and brings mostly pain and suffering. Examples include Uganda, Kenya, Egypt. (Oh how nice, the article itself is about Egypt! What a coin-kee-dink!)

    I wasn`t saying that theists don`t pay taxes, I was stating that religious ORGANISATIONS don`t. So that`s twice you missed my point. Miss again and you win a prize!

    The difference is that a snake-oil salesman knows his snake oil is useless. A pastor believes what he`s saying is true.

    If a scientist defends a theory that happens to turn out wrong, is he a scam artist? Was Isaac Newton scamming people when he layed out his theory of mechanics?

    "Rights do serve a function. Religion on the other hand has little to no function and brings mostly pain and suffering. Examples include Uganda, Kenya, Egypt. (Oh how nice, the article itself is about Egypt! What a coin-kee-dink!)"

    Religious people are happier than non-religious people. That is the function religion serves.

    No, stop with the "owning" I fail to see anything satisfactory from it. It`s best to let the religious rant because they always do it better than any athiest could do. So call a peace and be done with it.

    "...If a scientist defends a theory that happens to turn out wrong, is he a scam artist? Was Isaac Newton scamming people when he layed out his theory of mechanics?"

    Ha ha, you`re actually going to mix scientific theory with theistic beliefs? Oh MAN.

    Religious beliefs have no proof to back it up. So essentially the pastor is preaching something that has nothing to back it up. The stuff he preaches has a lot of influence on people as they usually get a lot of life lessons from there. I think having a little more proof and researching into things is a bit bitter. Inadvertently, yes it`s a scam.

    You seem to have a little difficulty in understanding what a scientific theory is. They don`t just make something up and stick with it, (Something religion is very familiar with) a scientific theory has actual proof to back it up. You seemed to have it mixed up with philosophical theories.

    @TBWRB
    Yeah, you`re right. My bestest buddy KPres is getting a bit too boring now. Plus he`s not making any concrete points. It`s also getting awfully late where I am.

    Goodnight KPres, ol` friend! I wish I would continue but it`s pretty much useless shooting down drivel! Don`t stay up too late, okay?

    You fail to realize that religion doesn`t really have much concrete proof like science. You can`t really prove anything in religion, no one can prove God is really there. It`s all faith guys and if people choose to have it then let it be. Science can also be wrong, and so to can religion, but we learn a bit from both. Life lessons from religion and how things work from science
