[b] oh yes 5ever the trusted "savage" argument - let me guess its the white man's burden to bring these heathens levis blue jeans and marlboro reds? Save their soul through commericalism!! HALLELUYAH, AMEN!
[b]5ever[/b] i know you are smart enough to know there are zealots in all religions. Anyone remember the inquisition? witch burning? the trail of tears? abortion doctor murders?
there have literally been millions of cases of murder, torture and several notable cases of genocide all carried out in the name of Jehovah, Jesus, Yahweh. Our God is just as vengeful, spiteful and violent as theirs. at the end of the day there is no ****ing gold star handed out to those who kill in the name of Christ.
You are smarter than this cmon. The "muslim is evil" stuff i expect from the majority of bonehead posters on this board, but not from you. Its low-brow propoganda, nothing more. [/b][/quote]
Bitonti - you arent seriously comparing abortion-doctor murders to the Inquisition or Muslim terrorists, are you?
Let me nuance my statement about the influence of Islam on terror. I did not say "Muslim is evil" and not even close. You cannot deny, however, that ALL of the terrorists we are currently fighting, and those that have been attacking us and our interests abroad for decades are Muslims.
All terrorists we are fighting are Muslims. All Muslims are not terrorists. Therefore, we are not fighting all Muslims.
You can further extrapolate that Muslim does not = evil (terrorism).
It is not an either/or situation. It is not "All Muslims are evil" or "Islam has nothing to do with terrorism." You ask how people can get soo pissed as to take their own life? Because they believe they are going to paradise with a dozen virgins and that Allah will smile on them!! No matter how angrey they were, they would not kill themselves if they didn't truly believe that they would be rewarded by God for it!! You KNOW this. I know a ton of pissed off atheists and NONE of them blow themselves up!
RADICAL Islam, not ALL Islam dude. If you don't see this conenction than I don't know what to say....
