I object to double standards, and if anyone here is a closet muslim, it's you because you're already an islamic sycophant.

There are no double standards from me: religious zealots are religious zealots, regardless of their religion.

And considering the fact I have harshly criticized muslims and even called islam a fascist ideology, you could not be more wrong with calling me a sycophant. But since you already believe in a fairy tale, I guess logic would not be able to convince you of anything but what you want to believe.

<quoted text>. Bad advice, if any business owner fires all workers that belong to one specific group it is automatically clear that there is a racial or religious bias. In such a case, the business owner can and most likely would be taken to court and successfully sued .
That's the problem in American law, that kill small business. Beside high tax, complicated regulation kill regulation. The regulation that have connection with race and religion also shut business.

I always think's civil right is wonderful think. But however (maybe my opinion little bit racist), civil right protection that out side of life, liberty (natural rights) realm. Can create crazy unlogic lawsuit, that kill small business. For example: Belly dancer bar that only hire middle east slim girl, Model agency that specialized in mix race.

Liberal are nice and caring. They love to apply golden rule on everything. For example: They demand equal pay to women, Raising minimum wage, Maternity leave law, etc.

They so blindfolded to the eye of consumer and employee. What they don't see that some times good intention create bad unintended consequence. For example: Minimum wage make business scared to hire people.

Liberal anti racist complicated rule create frivolous lawsuit. I bet parasite lawyer donate lot's of money to liberal NGO and democrat.

Thanks for warning. I just sharing input from my uncle and other relatives. American public see the business people who outsource job to overseas as evil, which is very offensive to me. The Business people try to make good product in low cost. American public didn't know that the law their created are the one that make business dead.

Religious zealots have a tendency to not have any good responses to well-known truths.

Hence your inability to come up with something better.

I don't have a dog in this specific fight in Marshall Park. But I do have one in the general aspect of religious zealots complaining others are insulting their religion, while ignoring how their own statements about their own belief or that of others may well be taken as a similar insult by those others. It's the special privileges that religious people demand that are wearisome and DO make me a dog in this fight.
You wouldn't have freedom if it weren't for Christians.
You are to dumb to understand that.
That is why you are an atheist.
Your freedom comes from God, not from man.

My freedom come my extension of my life as individual. Making excuse freedom comes from God, are only reason to impose statism on personal habits.

Government and God have same function which is to protect people from imaginary fear.

Will religion is not good for brain cell. If you notice history, big government and big religion with huge ambition never success to conquer the world. Because this world are rule by invisible hand of market demand.

If these zealot know history little bit. They should be relax, because it's impossible Islam to rule the world. Because in reality, to creep Shariah law in US, you need lot's of money.

But their imaginary fear is already insensible. Perhaps, using too much time to have relationship with Jesus ..... will ended into unreasonable phobia.

Let's see, in post 5 I pointed out that someone's notion that if christians (rather than *atheists*) put up billboards insulting a religion, this would cause an uproar, ignored the fact that this is exactly what christians did according to the newspaper article (and there was no uproar).
In post 7 I scolded ALL religious zealots, regardless of their affiliation.
<quoted text>
Ah yes, the thread in which you did not want to answer the simple question whether you'd approve of listing the FRC if only CAIR were also listed.
What I pointed out is that the SPLC tracks organizations that are considered legal in the US. If it also would track non-legal organizations and all over the world, it would need a few thousand extra people. Besides, if the SPLC knew where non-legal organizations were located in the US, the FBI would be all over it already!
Also of interest: you completely ignored the examples I provided. That behavior describes Joe DeCaro to a tee: "Inconvenient information? Ignore! Information that can be twisted to suit my agenda? Twist and distort until it suits!"
Sorry Marco, I read back from this post and you are just here to bash Christians,

I don't have a problem with that, I bash Christians too,

but I like to bash assholes and dumbshits a lot better.

You thundering moron.

Lay down the pipe or ask someone to proof read for you.

Now, maybe you actually do get around to bashing muslims, but I am already bored with you.

There is no god, so he cannot have given me anything.

Nor do I see why I should thank christians for my freedom, when my ancestors (which include plenty of christians) have had to work hard to get that freedom actively fighting other christians.

Since being a religious zealot requires you to ignore rational and objective thinking, the answer to that question is no.

Religious zealots tend to put people in boxes they can label "evil" to sooth their own inadequacies about their religion.

So everybody who don't agree you is Muslim?

Btw Jesus is love to bash the rich, praise the poor, curse property right. And first Christian generation able to economic survive from Rome persecution, because they pool and redistribute farm.

I hate people who curse the rich like Jesus. I always support the idea let the uninsured die on street, so it will reduce the cost of US health care.

BTW my family outsource business to here. Because we hate tax, union, regulation, food stamp and all social program. And i love the way Indonesian government let the poor die on street (most of them Muslim), so we can have low tax.

I am incredible fine to see uninsured Muslim die on street. Still think i am Muslim?
