We are not a christian nation. It's rhetoric that is bunk. It sends a stronger message of american values to stand for religious freedom, instead of burning a book.

ruez: one part of it being questionable (Mohammed's response to someone taking pity of a dog) means the whole thing is questionable. Why show kindness to someone showing kindness to a dog when you detest and have killed same dogs>?

sure, it's true, although the arabic meaning is a lil bit lost when translated to english, but the point is there, yeah in fact, i know 12 hadiths about killing dogs except those used for service. Muhammad SAW ordered them killed because Gabriel/Jibrail said that angels don`t go near dogs. keep in mind that there, most of the citizens are Muslims, and he only wanted the city to be maximally visitable by angels.
but still, what does that have to do with my post on the forgiven prostitute? it tells of how one genuine act of kindness trumps sins if willed by God. the animal there could very well have been a pig, platypus or a penguin. that there, is the question. personally, i think puppies are adorable.
