    The people in that part of the world have been killing each other since Cain killed Able. It's not going to stop and it has nothing to do with religion. Cain, Nebuchadnezzar II, and Ramses weren't Muslims. The Greeks who overran and occupied Israel weren't Muslims and the Romans who destroyed Jerusalem weren't.

    If Israel went away tomorrow, the Sunnies and Shiites would continue killing each other. The Arab Spring and the current mess in Syria are primarily Muslims killing other Muslims like the drug wars in Mexico are primarily Christians killing other Christians. Most Muslims aren't murderous animals any more than most Christians are.

    But Muslims support and condone the terrorism that's being conducted in the name of their religion. The silence of the Muslim community on the subject of terrorism tells you all you need to know about where their loyalties lie.

    Christians on the other hand, would have wholeheartedly condemned ANY form of violence conducted in the name of Christianity.

    Huh? Did you forget to add a smilie or some other indication of sarcasm?

    Or are you seriously saying that millions of white men residing along the Gulf coasts of Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas, are all, each and every one of them, racist murderers? Even by the insane standards of the treasonous Left, that's preposterous.

    Yes, bad people exist everywhere, the Bible has been saying so for millenia as well as telling us the remedy (accepting Jesus and striving to live by His laws), but see Post #4 where JBnTX schools you and muscogee on the difference between Islam and Christianity.

    Bull****. I never heard Joel Osteen speak out against Christians invading Iraq. Christians clearly condone killing Muslims, as far as your reasoning is concerned.

    Prisons are full of people who found Jesus. Your argument fails.

    Nice dodge of my questions, but you're not getting off that easily.

    Once again, did you just forget to add a smilie, or did you actually slander millions of good southern white men with a vile lie about each and every one of them being a racist murderer?

    Yeah. Nevermind that the terrorists set up shot in hospitals, schools, worship centers, playgrounds, homes, etc. Anywhere that civilian casualties will be high if they are ever attacked. Makes for great Pallywood videos which the left just fall all over themselves about.

    The Crusades were a response to Islamic military aggression and I am damn glad the Crusades happened as I don't care to live in a muslim theocracy. If you don't like the result you can vote with your feet and move to a country controlled by muslim idiots.

    I consider the Protestant Reformation to be a good thing as well since it helped break the RCC grip on power in Western Europe, the Priests who molest children would have never been locked up had the reformation not happened as just one example of a benefit to stripping the RCC of power.

    I have a great aunt, Martha Pennoyer Corey, who was hanged at Salem Mass. and I don't approve of that but the last witch trial in N. America or Western Europe was quite some time ago.

    BTW the Civil War involved violence. Is that also a bad thing in your view? I ask because IMO letting Islam rule the globe would be a real bad idea as would letting the RCC retain their grip on power they had pre reformation. As it turned out doing away with slavery in this country involved bloodshed. IMO doing away with slavery is a good thing.

    So being in the US military = being Christian? BS! I don't know what military you served in but religion was purely optional when I went through RTC in 1977. There was no Christian indoctrination what so ever while I was in. I was and am atheist as are several members of my family who served and many of the people I hung out with in the military.

    BS, that was an equivalence argument. The crusades were not a bad thing. The reformation was not a bad thing. Outside of the Vatican how many Christian theocracies are there RIGHT NOW in the 21st century?

    Can you show me an MODERN* equivalent of this in a nominally Christian nation?

    Of course any of this could just as likely happen right now in a nominally Christian country. :upeyes:

    Nope, no discernible differences at all in behavior between adherents of the different religions in the 21 century. :whistling:

    Stop with the straw men and stay on topic. I'm not going to attempt to respond to what you said I said.

    I've Never disagreed with Snowbirds views on the muslims. I think everyone is in agreement on how bad they are.
    It is just his views on us(atheists), and everything else that are way off.
