As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.
Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?
No, he said Muslims are the only kind of terrorists you see in the media. No one ever talks about all those American terrorists over in the Middle East.MusicDragon said terrorists are the only muslims you see in the media.
Blah blah blah. No Muslim in the right mind considers the terrorists to have been Muslim (I don't). The terrorists can claim that their practice of extremism is Islam, but from an actual Muslim's point of view, what they did (and what they're doing now) does not follow any of the Islamic laws.But, the terrorists were muslim. Just because the mosque has nothing to do with the terrorists (questionable in its own right) doesn't mean the terrorists have nothing to do with the mosque.
The thing is that, any Muslim who respects their teachings wouldn't harm a thing or perform a violent acts unless they're defending theirselves. Terrorism seems quite the opposite. Terrorism goes against Islamic teachings on war and violence.I think the real question we need to ask is: why are there idiot fanatics that take their holy writings seriously enough to kill thousands of people?
Because they're retarded.I think the real question we need to ask is: why are there idiot fanatics that take their holy writings seriously enough to kill thousands of people?
I don't understand the expression "give a fiat" (isn't that a car or something?) but I'm pretty sure we don't.By the same token, why do we need to give religious extremism a fiat because it's motivated by religion?
yeah, okay, but elsewhere you imply that all Muslims agree with the terrorists that initiated 9/11 while saying you don't agree with other Christian extremists. ???I think that Westboro Baptist Church is moronic and needs to shut up before I have to never show my face out of shame. I don't pass them just because we're both baptist and I don't think that anyone should pass the extremists off because they were extreme.
and this is why I asked how you would feel if, say, members of the Westboro Baptist Church flew a plane into the Empire State Building and then NYC wanted to build a (not necessarily Baptist) church nearby.No I don't ever imply that I imply that it's going to salt the wounds of those who lost families in 9/11 to have a mosque there no matter how much it denounces the actions of those people.
