Seemed odd to me that muslims didn't seem to qualify as religious to him.<quoted text>
Muslims, Christians and Jews are the religious groups most responsible for the world's most horrific wars. The guy with a suicide vest is doing God's bidding to some while others claim he is a monster. When a zealot kills an abortion provider with a firearm he is heralded as a hero by some and a murderer by most.
One man's freedom fighter is another's terrorist.
They are absolutely drenched in it.
The suicide bombing community is 100% faith based.
Freedom fighter vs. terrorist is something I have understood for a long time.
Take Manning, Snowden, hell... even Julian.
Here are a bunch of guys that found out our govt. was fucking us in ways we didn't even imagine. They had the guts to inform the American citizens (who they are supposed to protect) that these invasions of our constitutional privacy were not only happening, but occurring with zeal.
And instead of saying "HEY!!! YOU sneaky BASTARDS! What the fuck is all of this?!!?"
We offered THEM up for the court of public opinion.
Ignore the jaw dropping espionage... we absolutely must decide whether we like the people who delivered us the truth.
If they would have been blowing up North Korean secrets they would be getting a Nobel Prize.
There is something very wrong with us.
