That is o.k. Me and the rest of the 1.5 billion of us in the Islamic faith voted and we decided we don't want the mother in law from hell anyhow. No loss on our part.

In fact, thanks for the heads up. Your daughter just might grow up to be like you. We would not want to get stuck with that package twenty years down the road for Mohammed's sake.

I'm certain that there are many Jews, Buddhist, Hindu, atheist, Taoist, Christian Scientist, Gnostic, Sikh, Shinto, Rastafarian, or even southern Baptist who would rather attend your next family renuinion than we would.

Peace be with you angry woman. I will say a prayer for you, and especially for your daughter.

How about a satanist then? The point is that once your daughter is older, you'll have almost no control over who she's attracted to.

You can only live vicariously through your children for so long before they start to resent you.

This young lady has hopefully learned a huge lesson about meeting men online; it is often unsafe, and you would be better to do a background check first, to protect yourself. If you want to meet someone in person that you met online, always go with a friend, never alone! Never go to another country or state to meet them, and never at your own home or theirs. Granted, finding a person to have a loving relationship with in this way may just work out, but it would be better to be safe rather than sorry!

You should be speaking out against all the terrible people who have hijaked your religion and not ignorant people on the net. I used to believe that Islam was a peaceful religion but in this day and age those of you who would never strap a bomb to your daughter in the name of Ala should be proving to the rest of the world you dispise these acts along with the rest of us. I so no true outrage from the 1.5 billion you speak of. Where are you? sounds like there are enough of you to end the terror! If your religion is so peaceful that why not democarcy in these middle Eastern countries that treat women like dogs. There is a reason you live in a Christian country and not a muslum one right???

The USA is not a Christian country. A "Christian Country" would mean that christianity is practiced exclusively.

It is a Christian country in that it was started by Christians and is dominated by Christians. It is not "official". And we have Christians to thank. They are much more tolerant and freedom loving than Muslims.

Some of our founding fathers were Christian, but not all of them. I think it's the separation of church and state that has made our country great.

Most were. And Christianity has allowed for seperation of church and state. It didn't just happen. Christian people and principles are the base and the root for the great country we experience every day. It was totally unusual 200 years ago and free loving Christians are the primary reason. It would be nice if these crazy Muslim countries would do the same.

Actually, it was the people who came over here from religious oppression that helped make this country the way it is. They wanted for everyone to CHOOSE and be able to practice their OWN religion, not the one the government TOLD them they had to practice. Look at the time our country started and who was actually ruling England at the time. If you were Protestant, you were AGAINST the Catholic church, therefore AGAINST England. The people who came here came for freedom, not more religious control.

The first amendment states....

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

That does NOT mean we are a Christian nation. We are a nation of MANY faiths. Read your constitution again and show me where we are a Christian nation.

Oh, and I'm Christian.

I love the statement that Islam is the reason that there is no peace in the world. Obviously people are playing hte blame game. People can do terrible things no matter what there faith is. And to day that all those that are Muslim are terrible people is completedly naive. And when playing the blame game one needs to be very careful. Are we forgetting that the christians that 'founded' this country did so by killing a raceof people that already lived here - the First Nations People. I am sure that they have a really different view than others on this page. Or that when Christianity was started it was a rebel religion and it has a very bloody history??
I am a very faithful Christian, but lets be realistic about this. Religion, Christian religion, is the problem in Northern Ireland, not the Muslims, so how can they be blamed for that lack of peace?? Casting all peoples of a fatih in one brush is not really very Christian of you now is it??

Completely False.

In case you forget, it's in writing that our nation is in no way founded upon Christianity. Our earliest government stated this in the Treat of Tripoli, article 11.

"The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion"

U.S. Treaty with Tripoli, 1797

If you try to refute that everyone just think you're crazy because it's a known fact.

No it does not and you know what I mean. The USA is built on and continues to be based on Christian principals. Thank god, because you won't go to jail or be beat for naming a teddy bear Jesus.
