    When is the last time a Christian bombed an abortion clinic?

    Also, we all said "drat that guy, he isn`t Christian."

    When is the last time a Muslim bombed something?

    Also, his mosque prayed for him as a martyr.

    Bombing people is wrong. Being an insufferable douchebag is also somewhat annoying.

    Right, they held a christian conference and everyone agreed that Eric Rudolph was not a christian...lmfao.

    As far as I know, your Evangelists and wacko extremists like the Westboro Baptists all revelled in the bombing and proclaimed it righteous action.

    Grow up, you christians are no different other than what you call your dear and fluffy lord.

    "Right, they held a christian conference and everyone agreed that Eric Rudolph was not a christian"

    That`s a fair assessment. The church I went to at the time had a nice dialogue on the topic. We decided he didn`t represent Christians as a whole, but a warped/Redneck/bully perception of Christianity.

    It`s funny, but they are really just throwing the Christian thing out there to avoid singling out Islam. Not very many people blowing themselves up saying "Jesus is great". Needless to say, even the most non-radical Muslim probably has more radical views on abortion than anybody in the west, including many Christians like Romney.

    Well, that`s a great example of bias and favourism.

    The atheist extremist would hold views which would be considered extreme by most members of the atheist community. Like any other type of extremist, an atheist extremist would be irrational. This irrationality would be manifest through cognitive errors such as (and not limited to) the following:

    * Overgeneralization - Drawing grand conclusions based on isolated examples (e.g., "Because one Christian does something bad, all Christians are bad.") This post is a good example of that.

    * Dichotomous Thinking - Framing the world in terms of absolutes without acknowledging meaningful gradations (e.g., "Atheists are smart; believers are stupid.").

    * Disqualifying the Positive - Rejecting positive experiences as somehow not counting in order to preserve one`s negative view of some group (e.g., "Christians may give a lot to charity but only to promote their agenda of bra

    While I agree this is little more than trolling your own site and should be taken that way, I don`t think Islam has a particularly strong stance on abortion. A fetus not considered a living soul until it `quickens` at about four months. After that abortion is not ok, but not universally forbidden, depending on circumstances.

    Moslem anti-abortionist activists in the US (so wiki tells me) are consistently advised by their clerics to make their argument from morality without claiming religious support, of which there is basically none in the texts.

    Of course, the same is true of the Christian texts. Not an issue. I suspect that this may be because nomadic tribes in harsh conditions were quite pragmatic about abortion.

    Now that`s what I call a sad lack of ambition right there (#3)! I mean, at least the other two groups have a reason to get up in the morning, right? Am I right?

    Also, #2 wins because they get to do it again and again and again! Stupid Muslims strapping bombs to themselves and their kids -- that`s just not very forward-thinking, if you ask me.

    Andy Bro, Muslims do live in "the west" and are good Americans just like any of the rest of us. (Unless of course you`re prepared to argue Muhammad Ali and Kareem Abdul Jabbar are out there plotting to eat our children).

    And in point of fact, it`s fascinating to note that Ayatollah Khomeini (yes *that* Ayatollah Khomeini) was actually supportive of sex reassignment surgery for transgender Muslims. Surprising no?

    And lets please dispense with the "policing their own" meme. There are at least 3 significantly different sects of Islam, Sunni, Shia and Sufi not to mention each congregation is independent of one another. There is no equivalent of the Pope in Islam.

    With over 25,000 different ways to be Christian no one Christian is ever going to recognize any of the others as definitively "Christian," let alone "police their own". Good Goddess Islamophobes are so screwed up.

    Zira: I think there is a marked difference between American Islam and Traditional Islam.

    What is happening in Europe is a prime example. If "that video" was truly the problem, wouldn`t American Muslims be protesting?

    They aren`t, you know why? America is the reason for the protest.

    Well the protests are taking place in the Middle East, not Europe, and there is a misguided sense in the Middle East that everything that pops up on the web is a product of our government. Over there, they`re used to seeing covert US involvement in *everything* around them so why not this too?

    Plus they`re used to home governments that regulate what you can and cannot say, there is none of that here. They reason if we`re not actively banning it, we must be supportive of it.

    This phenomena came out so clearly when Bachmann, our village idiot, wandered out into the global village and began prattling on about how Clinton is secretly behind the Muslim Brotherhood extremist takeover in Egypt. They believed it and protested her when she was there even though the US is categorically against the Brotherhood.

    They don`t know how our domestic politics work. It`s like a never ending loop of stupidity.

    Let me guess, you are another misinformed graduate of Glenn Beck University. Hitler very much believed in God. His views on organized religion did slip but he was against atheism.

    We (read: Obama) supported the overthrow of Mubarek and Qadaffi and replacement of them with Muslim Brotherhood supporting leadership.

    It`s turning out reeeeeeeeal well.

    AJ, we supported Mubarak for well over 30 yrs and Khadaffi too for about the same amount of time. Then when they were going to be overthrown by new Democratic movements we supported the infant democratic impulses instead. What we didn`t count on was the populous electing home governments that were completely unlike what the big Western democracies originally wanted.

    We didn`t do any meddling in Egypt`s election nor did we support the Brotherhood.

    There were calls from (Republicans) that if these leaders were overthrown, Muslim Radicals would move in and cause havok.

    This was well before the protests even began.

    This is why it`s important to take every opinion into account, and research it before you dismiss it.

    I distinctly remember Gingrich in particular calling for more aggressiveness on Libya.

    And that doesn`t even begin to account for all the Reps I`ve heard since McCain himself in `08 making the case for bombing Iran, ("Bomb bomb bomb-bomb- bomb-Iran!"). It`s been a persistent but low frequency drum beat.

    My point being of course, Geopolitics is a tough interconnected business.

    I don`t doubt for a minute that Gingrich was trying to one up his competition, and I also don`t trust Iran, but I`m not certain that bombing them is the exact right thing to do either. Law of unintended consequences and all.

    I`d really like for us to be better global citizens, in every respect.

    And I haven`t seen The Dictator but I really should, you know? I love Sacha Baron Cohen. :-D

    I`d say that the Milwaukee Sikh temple shooting was the last Christian mass murder I can think of. In this country. Of course, Anders Behring-Breivik killed about 80 in Norway about a year ago. That was a pretty big one.

    Oh, not abortion clinics you say? Okay, fair enough. Dr. Tiller`s shooting was close, but still, you`re right, it`d have to go back to Rudolph. I understand he`s been excommunicated, though? But that Muslims never, EVER denounce terror. Okay. Got it.

    He (Rudolph) wasn`t a member of any particular sect Smagboy. Neither was the Sikh killer. Neither was the Norwegian non-nice individual, but that wasn`t religious as much as it was just plain racism.

    Ah, see, you can pull Atheists into it all you want. We already know we`re godless. But, as we don`t have an official organization or dogma, if some guy goes and kills someone, or millions, under the name Atheist, so what? We`re not claiming a moral high ground.

    As for you excommunicating all of those folks, Auburn, nice try, but, they killed for Christian ideals. Or claimed they did, just like Islamic terrorist. You can excommunicate them after the fact all you want. Violence is violence.

    Someone commits a terrorist act in the name of God once every 5 to 10 years.

    Someone commits a terrorist act in the name of Allah every 5 to 10 minutes.

    ------------

    Of course some of us are fanatical. Having religion shoved down our throats, on a daily basis, is enough to drive anyone nuts. How many times a day does a person have to hear about your magical sky wizard? Why do you feel the need to constantly mention him?

    Given that he isn`t real and science can now explain away all of the mumbo jumbo, shouldn`t you be embarrassed by your beliefs and hide them in shame instead of touting them like a brainwashed twit at every opportunity? Or even better, shouldn`t you stop pushing your religion and fighting to have it forced on others?

I`m a devout Catholic and all I try to do is live my life in peace and help my fellow humans regardless of their beliefs as much as possible. I won`t apologize for that.
