Oh... if you want to mention the Crusades you can...

So if we are caught up here we have history that indicates that people of one religion often kill people of another religion, and that any religion of any significance can be shown to have killed others.

Geez!

My head is swimming!

Next, you'll be telling me people inside the same religion will be killing each other for perceived differences within the same religion!

I notice you posted this in another thread, it was quickly removed.
I guess the mods don't want that story to be known.
Thanks for sharing.

Why would anybody not want that story to be known? That's an illogical conclusion.

Well then, Dan, how about you share your "logical" conclusion as to why the post was removed.

My guess would be because that particular poster from Chambersburg has been banned by Topix. EVERYTHING he/she/it has posted since November has been deleted, regardless of the actual content of the posts.

Since the post I replied to (#1315) of theirs is still standing, I would say your guess has no more logic than my guess.

That's not the same poster. You confused a poster from Virginia Beach with a poster from Chambersburg.

A GREAT SUGGESTION IN THE NY TIMES THIS MORNING - I WISH I HAD WRITTEN THIS:
It is a sign of our times that President Obama and the Senate Democrats are fearful of the National Rifle Association. I for one am sick and tired of the power and influence of the gun lobby.
I propose that people like me who deplore gun violence take our country back from the gun lovers. We can do that by using economic sanctions against states that allow the gun lobby to write the laws. How? By never moving to these states, by moving out of these states and by never vacationing in these states.
The gun lobby uses money to gets its way. It is time for decent people to use their money to defeat the gun lobby. We can do that one state at a time. If we can get most states to regulate guns vigorously, we will be able to regulate guns at the national level.
