    A substantial volume of evangelical Christians would disagree about the irrelevance of biblical literalism.

    I would also be interested to read how you interpret the above commandments from Exodus and Leviticus as something less homicidal than the way they are translated into English.

    You are the living answer to the question from the OP. The question was why do people tollerate jihadi islamism. The answer is that leftists consider radical islam on the same vein as any other religion. All are bad so whats the difference right. You are bringing up ancient bible passages and basic nonesense while today islamists are beheading andnstoning people to death. Who gives a **** what happened 300 to 3000 years ago. Its completely irrelevant to today. There is a well armed well financed 50k strong jihadi army in Iraq and Syria right now. Many are from western countries with passports abd easy access to travel. You want to have a philosophical discussion about bible passages? Its ridiculous.

    The problem isn't religion.

    Religion is a symptom.

    Mo' Religion. Mo' Problems.

    Secularism is the answer.

    The fact that Jews don't try and convert people make them different then Christians and Muslims. One other thing Judiasm and Christianity were found on law and order. The missionaries used their place as a force of evil Islam was spread by the sword in every country and it still is today. The crusades were nothing compared to what is happening in every Islamac country.

    Bull****. Communism, Nazis, the Mongols murdered in the millions. Blame the religion is easy how about blaming the people who use it as a means to and end. Secularism is a religion with no leadership but is still a religion. Case in point in Tennessee a child was suspended for saying bless you to a friend who had sneezed. This is secularism run amuck.

Never underestimate the ability of people to hate, and hide that hatred behind religious or political dogma and ideology. It is too simple to just say that the Muslim religion is bad; in doing so we ourselves inch closer to the ignorance and fear that fuels their blind hatred and anger. All religions at their core separate us and cultivate dislike of other people because their beliefs do not align with others. In my view organized religion is the most dangerous influence on the peace of the world which is sadly ironic.
    Bull****.

    Would one of the religion hating, proud atheists here please let me know where the hordes of evangelical christians that are beheading jews, gays, ethnic minorities, women and other undesireables today are?

    And don't bring up the Crusades. that was about 1000 years ago.

    Islam is a disease. A virus. Its very nature is violence and hate. There is no such thing as a "moderate muslim". There are practising and non-practising muslims. Period. And for all the talk about the "majority" if Muslims in the world, they sure are q quiet bunch....


    As for the Evangelical Christians, if you are a Christian and you are reading Leviticus, you're doing it wrong anyway. Jesus' stuff (you know, be nice to each other) is all you're supposed to be worrying about. That was kind of the point.

    And no, I haven't been into a church for years, but if you can't see the differences between the teachings of Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and those of Islam, then you are delsuional and have bot into the moral equivalency fallacy.

    Jews don't care what your religion is unless you're a Jew.

    Christians wil try to convince you to become a Christian, for the past 200+ years thats been a relatively peaceful practice.

    Hindus and Buddhists hope you leave them in peace while you figure out your path.

    Muslims will cut your ****ing head off, shoot you in the back, bury you alive, rape your women, throw acid in your face, stone their own daughters, and strap bomb vests to their own handicapped children - and thats if you're the wrong KIND of Muslim....never mind Christian, Jew, Hindu, or whatever....

    You're right. It's ridiculous to think that we might have a discussion on a discussion forum. What was I thinking, especially when somebody asked for that information.

    I'll try to work up some hate-based stereotypes so I can better fit in with the...whatever this is.

    Nope.

    Killing them is the answer.

    If Christian God is too much of a wuss to stop Islamic Kooks from killing...then I guess someone ought to do it for him.
