    I'm going to take an educated guess and say it was the (muslims)religion of peace again.

    Do we differentiate between radical Muslims attacking in the name of God and criminals who do terrible things who happen to also be Muslim?

    Because I can look in the paper every day and find you stories about criminals who happen to be Christian. Does that equate to Christian terrorism?

    Or are they bad people regardless of the majority religion in their country?

    Motivation has a lot to do with it. That's why we have hate crime laws. It's bad to kill someone, worse to kill them because they were black or gay or whatever just like it's bad to shoot up a church, worse to shoot up a church because your own religion says so.
     
  5. Disingenuous.

    The Bible says, "Love thy neighbor as thyself", never mind their religion. If a 'Christian' murders someone, he does so AGAINST what the Bible says. But the Koran says, "Slay the infidel", so when a Muslim murders a non-Muslim, he does so WITH THE BLESSING of his holy book. He's told he gets 72 virgins.

    The Fort Hood shooter yelled, "Allahu Akbar!" while committing murders of non-Muslims -his religion underwrote this evil behavior. Both he and Islam are guilty of mass murder.

    And today's total of deadly Muslim attacks just since 9/11 has risen to 19,168, with aid and comfort from traitorous Western dhimmis..

    In other words, bad Christians aren't really Christians, and bad Muslims are all terrorists.:upeyes:

    I do. I believe this to be yet another case of Muslims murdering Christians for religious motivations. Al Shabaab has been active in Kenya as well as Uganda and Boko Haram have been busy little bees murdering Christians in Nigeria. Do you have a vested emotional interest in wanting this to NOT be more Muslim terrorism? Does this even remotely look to you like some group who wanted to steal wallets and purses but inadvertently murdered church goers?

    If you believe that blacks and gays have more value than other people that conclusion might make sense. I don't consider a burglar or serial killer who kills to be somehow less evil than someone who kills because they don't like blacks or gays. And I certainly do not consider the lives they take to be of any less value than the lives of gay or black victims.
     
  9. Are these "bad Christians" you're talking about contrite at all? That makes a difference you know. Jesus offers forgiveness to genuinely repentant sinners.

    As for "bad Muslims", do you mean bad in our Judeo-Christian sense (i.e. guilty of robbery, rape, murder, etc), or do you mean bad as in not following what Islam teaches? Followers of a 'prophet' who raped a 9 year old girl and beheaded a Jewish tribe cannot reasonably be expected to excel at distinguishing good from evil. Long ago, Winston Churchill noted, "Where the Hindu elaborates his argument, the Moslem sharpens his sword". Do you have any insight, can you tell us, woofie, why are dhimmis supporting the dark side?

    So how do you expand all the murdering done in the bible, in gods name. Love your enemy, but kill every last one of them, and their livestock. The bible is just as good or bad as the Koran, it just depends on who is cherry picking it.

    Yeah, how are people suppose to know right from wrong when their spiritual leaders are raping children? Maybe we should ask the Vatican. Didn't Moses have the Levites slaughter 3000 Israelites for worshiping a golden calf? How could any follower of this prophet know right from wrong?


    the problem is all religious groups sacrifice reason for faith, and once that is done the previously unthinkable becomes reasonable. Christians were slaughtering Jews in europe in the 40s, and, and Muslims in the Balkans in the 90s. Catholic priests took part in the Rwandan Genocide, and a Christian group is murdering scores of people and abducting kids in the Sudan today.

    You're supposed to ignore that because Muslims have committed 19000 attacks.
     
  13. You have a point here. That's why we need to be careful about which religion we choose. The Bible warns that there will be many false prophets. "By their works ye shall know them". Atheistic communism, functioning as a false religion, murdered 100 million innocent men, women and children in the 20th century. Mohammed's Islam, another false religion, has murdered an estimated 280 million innocents, and counting. Atheist Hitler's National Socialism, yet another false religion, murdered further millions. (That said, the Bible also notes that while those who can kill our body are bad enough, but the ones to really fear are those who can kill our soul.)

    You see, 'religion' is just one's beliefs about who we are and what kind of world we live in; our understanding of the nature and meaning of our existence. Therefore religion is something everyone has, especially hypocritical atheists up on their high horse.

    False prophets may have names such as Adolf, Marx, Mohammed, or other. I think Satan's Left is well on its way to subjugating the US politically with the UN International Small Arms Treaty, to be signed by month's end, to wipe out our Second Amendment, making us easier to herd into cattle cars and killing fields. That would certainly facilitate evildoers killing the bodies of good people, as happened in the Armenian Genocide when Muslims murdered over a million Christians, Hitler's and Mao's death camps, etc (although their souls live on in heaven, I believe God wills us to defend our families and selves here and now, when possible. Thus Luke 22:36).


    As in every age, in the ongoing battle between good and evil, until the end of time when Christ will come again, people have to choose which side they're on.

    Choose life.

    I'd have to say I agree with you being disingenuous on this one.

    If a Christian is chanting scripture or something similar while he is pulling the trigger, then yes, he is a violent religious fanatic.

    If either a christian or muslim is chanting "hand over the money" or something similar, then they are crooks.

    Muslims chanting allahu akbar while pulling the trigger are violent religious fanatics.

    It's all rather simple. Not all muslims are violent jihadists, but it seems that an awful lot of violent jihadists tend to be muslim.

    Hitler was not an Atheist, nor we're the rest of the nazis.

    How many people have Christians killed? Know them by their works eh?
     
  16. Darn. I guess all the good Christians were too busy kidnapping and conscripting children in Uganda, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the Central African Republic to defend that church.

    Good? No, bad behavior should be condemned regardless of religious belief.

    At first I read "protect" as "protest."
