Historically it's been Christians who are guilty of forced conversion. The Quran states;
The Qur'an states "Let there be no compulsion in the religion: Surely the Right Path is clearly distinct from the crooked path." (Al-Baqarah, 2:256)
You're an ignorant bigot and a complete idiot!
A group of decentralized institutions within the justice system of Roman Catholic Church were guilty of forced conversions during the infamous Inquisition. Protestant Christians were considered "heretics" and became suspect as well. Christianity, however, spread throughout the centuries because of the power of the Holy Spirit to convict one person at a time to turn away from their rebellion against God. No forced conversions were necessary.

You should take that passage from the Qur'an to radical Muslims. Just don't expect to come back.

But you can walk into any Christian church anywhere in the world and feel safe and welcomed. Radical Muslims might blow you up or kill you in the Middle East, but the fact is Christians are still persecuted even today.

<quoted text>It's IS Obama's fault that FEMA didn't show up for nearly AN ENTIRE WEEK, that non-union volunteers are being turned away and that there is no food or water and the shortage of gasoline is due to Obama's EPA policies. This is worse than Obama's Katrina, this is Obama's Armageddon! Obama has really dropped the ball this time. Scores of people have already died and the toll keeps rising. He should be charged with criminal negligence due to his incompetence and arrogance during this national disaster. He should be charged with the crime of accessory to murder of the four Diplomats in Libya as well.
Your assertion that FEMA didn't show up for a week is a ridiculous lie. Since you posted on Saturday it hadn't even been a week since Sandy hit the Middle Atlantic. A week before you posted your lie Sandy was still in the Caribbean. Hell it hasn't been a week as I'm responding to your stupidity.
As soon as the storm cleared the area FEMA was on the ground doing search and rescue.
No volunteers were turned away union or non union; you're a liar.

The economy and the unemployment number is worse since obama took office. The GDP has sucked like you for the past 44 months.

Only in your parallel universe.
The economy was actually doing just fine with unemployment below 5% up until the house of cards fell. We didn't see the repercussions until 2008. Now ask yourself why that happened.
It would have happened under any president.
The only people who experienced anxiety over the collapse were White Males. True, the effects would have happened under any president but the recovery couldn't have been guaranteed. Obama has proven himself.

Another thing that most Americans whom voted for Obama to be a failed president in 2010, those dumbasses didn't figure into the equation that they were a part of the American Economic system that they were attempting to bring to a halt.

Uncertainty of Whites is what America and it's laws were ever geared towards. Finally, the results have shown up, the chickens have come home to roost. America is 4% of the world's pop. but they're consuming 80% of the opiad based prescription narcotics. Why do these Whites have to be so heavily medicated? Ollie North and Pat Robertson started the quest in Afghanistan in the 80's, They lost it to the Taliban in the 90's. The Taliban reduced production. G.W.B went in in 2000, Opium production was ramped back up. Hence the reason for destroying the WTC on 9/11. No conspiracy theory but in 40 more years, the government will release the files. Romney/Ryan on Tuesday to ensure Whites get their needed dope!!!

The fury of wingnuts scorned
I'm becoming more convinced than ever that Tuesday and Wednesday will bring the biggest meltdown since Fukushima. Losing an election is usually disappointing, sometimes maddening -- but with modern polling, very often the side that loses at least had some awareness that defeat was coming. This time, based on what I'm seeing on the right-wing sites I read semi-regularly (Hot Air, RedState, and Race42012), there is almost no such awareness in advance. Republicans seem convinced that they're going to win.
How sure am I that they're wrong? Well, nothing is certain, but most of the polls show Obama ahead in most of the swing states. As of this morning Nate Silver puts Obama's chance of winning at 83.7%. Polls of the Senate races suggest that our majority will actually increase. Yes, defeat is still possible, but a lot of very surprising things would have to happen to bring it about.
But the right-wingers don't see it that way. They think the polls are all wrong because high levels of Democratic party ID reveal some nefarious "skewing". They think there's still a huge enthusiasm gap in their favor. They point to Romney's lead among independents. They think voters will turn against Obama because he mishandled the Benghazi attack (most of the alleged mishandling has been debunked, but that doesn't penetrate the sealed Drudge / Fox / Limbaugh / etc. fake-media bubble). They think the public is finally realizing that Obama is Muslim, communist, stupid, anti-American, gay, Kenyan, or some combination of those
In fact, if the actual result deviates from the consensus of polls, it's more likely to be in our favor. A lot of polls don't include cell phones, and people who have only cell phones and no land lines are disproportionately young, black, and Hispanic -- groups that lean strongly Democratic. There's evidence that polls systematically under-sample Hispanics in the Southwest, thus under-estimating Democratic support (Reid won his 2010 Nevada race by six points when polls showed him losing)-- so our party should do better than expected in Nevada and Colorado, and even Arizona may bring some surprises. There could be an Obama / Senate landslide (in fact, with polls showing Florida back in play, an Obama Electoral-College landslide is possible even without those factors).
I've seen quite a few right-wingers salivating in anticipation of visiting liberal blogs and sites on November 7th to gloat. They expect to see Nate Silver, most pollsters, and all the other actual experts who are predicting a Democratic win, become utterly discredited and disappear -- vindicating the wingnut fake alternate reality which they and their "media" have cobbled together around themselves.
They're in for a terrible, harsh, cold shock, and many of them aren't going to take it well. Some of them are going to be enraged. Some will be looking for someone or something to vent their fury at.
On Wednesday, watch your back.
http://infidel753.blogspot.ca/2012/11/the-fur...
Couldnt agree more these right bent wing nuts have gotten so accustomed to dismissing any reality that doesnt tell them what they want to hear theyve constructed an alternate universe.
They arent going to be able to do this after the election and byzantine voter fraud conspiracies arent going to be enough.
Some of them are going to crack.
Most of them aint wrapped to tight to begin with.

And yet because it’s Obama, and he’s better looking and better at reading the teleprompter, we let him get away with it.”

While waiting in line to see the President today in Hollywood, Fl, an ad bus rolled by with a sign that said if the President was white, he wouldn't have been elected. Despicable.
If a white presidential candidate had had the same shady connections and past as this one with the same lack of qualifications and experience, he wouldn't have been elected.

We would have been talking about President Hillary Clinton for the past four years instead.

Many voted for Obama admitting it was only because it was an "historical" election but then lived to regret it.

Them's just the facts.

FEMA just helps state and local governments organize disaster relief. They aren't like the calvary. A common misconception.

That's a stretch.

The increased production of opium in Afghanistan began after 9/11 when resources in that country were diminished thanks to the actions by the Taliban on 9/11.

According to EU agencies, it's not the U.S. but Europe who is most affected by these narcotics. The estimated number of problem opioids users in EU is 1.5 million. In 2005, there were around 7,000 acute drug deaths with opioids being found in 70% of them.

The countries reporting the largest number of seizures of opioids are the UK, Spain, Germany, Greece and France. Countries reporting the largest quantities of heroin seized in 2005 are Turkey, UK, Italy, France and the Netherlands.

Maybe you need to go back and reconnect some of the dots.

Big government isn't working. Nothing the misguided left does ends up being a success, unless you consider success a lower standard of living, lower wages for the middle class and dead ambassadors with Al Queda flag fylying over government buildings in Libya.
