I'm a free thinker, free from religious dogma. What I can't understand is why Muslims move to democratic countries and riot and cause trouble ...

Muslims abroad get to do what they like, when they like and how they like, but heaven forbid a person who is not a Muslim says something about them ...

Well said.
Joe Dick also says we are none but sock puppets.

You are sock puppet, I am sock puppet, these others are sock puppets, some females, some males, but all are - sock puppets.

Know what a sock puppet is? Know what a game of sock puppet is? It starts from nothing and ends with nothing. And nothing comes out it.

Joe Dick says it well.

<quoted text>Are you pretending to be this slow on the uptake, or are you actually this obtuse in real life? Every religion has their unfortunate share of bomb throwers dear. Killing people in the names of the gods has been a far too frequent pastime of mankind ever since we found them. You're only freaked out about Islam because up until now, it had been the Christians job to kill inferior Christians and assorted non-believers. Now in the name of God you got competition.
Christianity is no more a "Religion of Peace" than is Islam, or any other religion for that matter. Despite repeated messages to the effect of peaceful coexistence in just about all their literature and the existence of peace oriented groups and sects within every major religion, the mainstreams of religion have, for the most part, always been intensely not peaceful.
We live in and are talking about the relative present, not about the 7th century, wherein Islam is steeped and has not departed from.
I am not religious, but Christianity appears to have moved on in step with Western civilisation.
The bible is not taken literally by most Christians.
Islam is also a religion of the 3rd world.

I'm well aware that radicals blaming Allah have the current lead in demonstrating man's inhumanity to man in the name of religion, but pretending the last 1300 years of Christian history didn't happen is just kind of silly, don't you think? The vast majority of those who identify with any religion (including Islam) aren't interested in wiping out the non, un and mis believers, but those sheep tend to remain silent in almost tacit agreement as the crazy among them go off. Sorry, but the Christian faith and the self-professed faithful have far too much blood on its collective hands to lay claim to the mantle of "The Religion of Peace" and we all know that it is a hell of a lot fresher than you just tried to tell us.

Sorry, but the only religion claiming that title is Islam, and if the Middle Ages are still fresh in your mind, then you need to get out more often.

Sweetie, if the last thousand or so years of Christian history have slipped from your mind, you have successfully proved yourself to be an idiot. No religion is the Religion of Peace, period.

I know you took photo with Romney and stuff, but Obama is the best bet for you, and me.
Obama's time in power is ended.He keeps finding reasons to stand up for islam. He lied - a lie of omission.....omitting to mention that he was decended from muslims. Then he allowed the building of the 'ground zero' mosque. He has dug his own political grave. The sooner they elect a pro-American president, the better.

What is best for Americans now is to be un-American as much as they could possibly be.

Who were Americans and what were their practices prior to Obama, and prior to that? They killed, they invaded, they usurped, and they never considered other than their own American interests – all these summed up into George Bush - and in doing all these, Bush emptied the American coffer, which was good for Americans to get to their senses.

Now Romney does speak like Bush. He shakes his head and put words together like Bush did. Most likely, he will do the same thing as Bush’s.

What is best for Americans now is to forget who they were ten years ago and be a new people of the 21st century America. Be more like the average of us.

There are those individuals who profess a belief in those religions, who also believe in peaceful coexistence. But other than it being a preaching of all the major faiths on the planet and probably most of the don't fit into those categories religions as well, there ain't a whole lot of practicing and the Gods get the blame.
I agree with U there, Rick. During the Dark Ages, Xtianity was definitely NOT a religion of peace.

Xtians - burnt people @ the stake back then (incl your kind)
Muslims - burn people today; eg. 9-11, Bali, London, Madrid, etc

Thats it. If I said about killing an American, I would get arrested. Nuking Mecca would kill not one person, but two or three millions. Old habits die hard.

Lets put it in persective.

What would Americans be without Islam? Live, mate, steal, blaspheme, die.

A dog's life could be better. Dogs don't commit suicide. A male dog doesn't mount on another male dog and penetrate the wrong places. Dogs don't denigrate prophets.

Islam teaches how to live like a man, or a woman. We know the reasons for living, and dying. We respect, either in peace, or in war.
