So far, all you really do is say - "NUH UH!".
This article gives an example of the ancients who wrote of the Exodus in which ''modern scholarship'' states were all wrong because the Exodus never happened.

Therefore you should expect whatever comes you way without complaint!!!
Yeah, you have double standards, alright!
What? Are you saying that if a woman wears provocative clothing, it's partially her fault that she was raped?

I very much agree with, with rights comes responsibilities! The problem is; where do you draw the line.
The idiot church that wanted to burn the qur'an; he went too far, in my book. He did that strictly to incite the mussies. He is one of those idiots who does not understand that he follows the same god as the mussies.
The South Park writers, the cartoonist, author, and this filmmaker, in my opinion, are not trying to incite anyone.
As far as Christine, she seems to have a strong bias for the mussies. Seems that they can do little wrong in her book and if they do, it is someone else's fault.
Here we go again, deliberately misunderstanding the concept of responsibility. I have said repeatedly that the murderers are responsible for murder. What makes this a strong bias? I have argued that a person is responsible for his actions. Freedom of speech does not diminish that responsibility, in fact my view that responsibility is more important.

The typical Muslim just as the typical christian just at the typical Jew, Hindu and atheist just want to get on with there lives, lives that they personally are responsible for. No god crutch, no excuses.

I do however make a distinction between decent people and terrorist.

Between people and murderers.

Between people and hate merchants

Between Christians and fundamentalists

Between Muslims and radicals

Between people and terrorist.

<quoted text>Thank you for stereotyping a whole country. You are right ALL of the US hates Muslims.
Violent people will be violent they do not need an excuse. They may use an excuse, such as a stupid movie, but it is not needed. Such as the druken lout that beats his wife. He beats whether he is drunk or not over the tiniest infraction. Is it her fault for not bringing him the beer fast enough?
And again how does someone incite rape upon themselves?
Now where did I say ALL? Oh I see lying again, well done.

From what I have seen most of the population (not all by any means) but certainly the majority dislike Muslims. GWBush saw to that in his frustration at not being able to get to those responsible for 9/11 he chose to discredit a religion with the government backing him up.

You may call it a stupid movie, I call it I a deliberate exercise in inciting hatred. Neither is the point, the point is that people are responsible for their actions

Please read my previous reply to inciting rape reply because I am not repeating just for your sexual excitement

Interesting point. A father at work had this to say about young females in provocative dress at public functions. It attracts attention from everyone. Even the attention they do not want. The psychos, for example. In large crowds they are there. Every psycho in the crowd loves the way they dress.

Donít get me wrong, a nicely muscled male body is extremely attractive to cuddle up to but artistically the female form has them beat 8 times out of 10

Just so long as you are not muslim and you agree 100% with you then everything is fine Ė right.
Honey, itís a big world, you donít like how a different culture in that big world lives then tough, learn to live with it
No Christine , I understand liability for what we do.
I do not support what the filmmaker put in film, I do support the freedom and right to do so. Yes he could have used better judgement , if he is guilty it is that ,. Guilt for exercising poor judgement.

Now lets talk about the people murdered , they were guilty of what?

Nothing double standard about that but of course we already know you are one of those Americans who thinks that Americans should not shoulder responsibility for their actions. So what can we assume from this? you are tolling, ok expected.
FYI, the Jews, Christians and Moslims all follow the same god, they just worship that god in a different way. Donít know much about the Abrahamic religions do you?
Which of course totally screws up the rest of your argument because it indicates that you know even less about other beliefs. My guess is in your case itís deliberate but hey hoÖ
However as I have said many times on here there is no excuse for murder just as there is no excuse for enticing hatred.
But you have become a Muslim apologist, our way is if someone is offended by someones Else's actions then sue them in court , if you have been wronged and "damaged" you can sue them.

That is the way it works Christine , no some Muslim made me mad so I have to go kill one. That's apparently acceptable behavior to Muslims. We all get the filmmaker was wrong , but the response is unacceptable and beneath me as much as you are for apologizing
for it.

Okay, you have expressed yourself.
Now we know you are a prick who cares nothing for others.
Please, I am half your age. Do not embarass yourself by letting a 26 year told tell you to act appropriately.

Look I am emotionless in the matter. I really think the filmmaker was wrong. But the truth is what does the film have to do with sentencing the specific people who were murdered to die?
If I go to a movie and don't like it I will get up and leave.
It doesn't cause me to kill a German from watching a film about Nazis.
