who the hell would want to fund Pakistan? They will destroy us in a heartbeat if given the opportunity.

They kill women who are raped to preserve the 'honor' of the family. They're all fluking nuts and anyone who supports a Country that allows this absurd human rights vioations is just as guilty.

And all Christians are abortion clinic bombers (I know, it's only wishful thinking). Yet another uneducated, broad-brush, xenophobe identifies herself.

Oh please that was an asinine comparison. Actions speak louder than words and the human rights violations against women in Pakistan is well documented by the United Nations. You are an idiot.

You wrote, "They're all fluking nuts and anyone who supports a Country that allows this absurd human rights vioations is just as guilty." Are you really so incapable of owning your own posts? You made an absurd all-encompassing statement and I only replaced it with one that was as equally absurd, one that said that all American Christians are murderous zealots. Take responsibility for what you write or sharpen your skills so that your thoughts are accurate and concise. Emotionality doesn't lend itself well to rational thought.

What I said was basically true and not meant as a literal statement you jackass. And when people fund a Nation who accepts the killing of women for being raped as honorable they are responsible for the continuance of such practices, thus with their purses they accept and condone such violations of women.

What you said was just dumb. One doesn't have to be a Christian to oppose abortions. And I bet you can't name but one abortion clinic bombing.

Oh, please, in the West we treat women like trash. Women have no power unless they have big breasts, shaven legs, and wear makeup. Women are sex objects here.

Islam respects women, Alhamdulillah. The West fears the burqa because it is different. It's just like in grammar school when the bully beat up the kid who dressed differently. Try reading up on what the burqa actually means.
