    I agree if something can be proven, without a doubt. A lot of this can't.

    I also hear people complaing about christianity, then won't say anything about Islam. Why?
    If you are refering to the USA, what religion is used to justify prejudice and used in people's law making? Which religion is used in prayer at the begining of meetings? Which religion's book do you put your hand over in a court of law? There's your answer and why you do not hear much about other religions. Because other religions are not at the forefront, both historically and currently. Other religions are not being used in law. Only one is. Hence the focus on it.

    I learned your language fairly well, so I think that we're good there. But when I leave, I'm taking pizza, pasta, wine, olive oil, tomatoes, the foundations of philosophy and law, best art, music and the Godfather movies with me.

    I complain fairly equally about both, but for different reasons. Christianity is generally, in my opinion, a well intentioned effort to enslave people while Islam is that too, but goes much further (at it's extremes) into murder, mayhem and much more upfront grievous acts against women and non-believers. They both abuse women and non-believers in a major way, but physical abuse has to be a higher priority for us to stop than psychological abuse... even though the latter will lead to the former.

    Of course the Christians have had their heydays of wreckless warmongering, genocide and persecution, but most of them are fairly mild in that regard. Islam went for centuries as a very peaceful, albeit strict, regime in much of the world, but lately it's far right wing is so out of control that the attitudes that permit such insanity are seeping into a larger population.

    Political affiliation here in the US is only that because its spoken. Most peopleare only affiliated with one of the 2 major parties just because of the influence that comes with the affiliation. You use to be able to tell what you were going to get with a dem or a repub but not now. They all have agendas and will betray their constituents to accomplish their agendas reguardless of who they have to make a deal with. This includes all parties. I don't consider myself affiliated either way. I listen to what they are and then decide who I like.

    Yes, because that is a lot worse than beating your daughter for getting raped or killing someone that doesn't accept my religion.

    To be fair, diverse cultures is what makes places great. Its just the law has to be respected and not forcing your own on but still allowing suggestions to modifying it.

    This speech could of been worded better, he expresses how extremists shouldn't force religion on the state. However some sections are dead wrong although some were quoted out of context.

    Did you really miss the point THAT badly? Let me know when those things start becoming a huge widespread issue in The U.S. then maybe we will start talking about it. For that matter, let me know when everyone that belives in that religion, practices it in that manner. But don't expect a religion to be brought up much when the majority of people do not practice it. It would be like demanding that we all talk about the Amish. or Budist.

    Guess you missed that whole "widespread problem" part. Isolated incidents does not mean that everyone in said religion beleives that same way. But then, you should know that so I can only assume you are being delibertly obtuse for some reason.

    You are aware of the difference between mainstream Islam, Islamists, and radical Islam, aren't you? Because those links don't prove what you think they do.

    A pass? How so?

    I'm pretty sure a Muslim student can't have a prayer group in school. Oh, it may be allowed, but I'm sure the participants would be bullied to no end.

    Of course, I don't think any religion should be in a public school, that's why we have private schools.

    I may be wrong, since I don't know you, really, but I'm guessing you wouldn't appreciate a Muslim student praying in the middle of class since they pray 5 times a day, it's inevitable that they would have to pray during school hours.

    If one religion is allowed then all religions are allowed. You may not agree with the other religions any more than they agree with yours, but constitutionally, all are afforded the same rights to practice. Whether they are Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Mormon, or any far out sect that worships whatever.

    Funny how all religions profess to have the 'Truth'. Yet condemn others for believing in their own 'Truth'. I have said this many times before, your truth is not my truth, as my truth is not yours. I am a firm believer of the 'to each their own' branch of humanity. Don't preach it to me, just practice what you preach.

    Oh, and stop killing in the name of religion. That goes for all of them.

    The religion doesn't get a pass. Just like extremist Christians don't either.

    You have to understand that, like most religions, there are extremist sects of Islam. By far the majority of Muslims in the world are nonviolent and despise the islamists and radical Muslims that twist their faith.

    I know I'm late to this party but I had to add...

    You realize that there are over 2 billion Muslims in the world. If the entire religion was as violent as you seem to think they are, every non-Muslim would be dead or in servitude. Islam is NOT a violent religion anymore than Christianity is. Every group has it's Looney Toons branch and it's that branch that media will broadcast to the masses. Crazy folk and the things they do sell newspapers.

    I learned your language fairly well, so I think that we're good there. But when I leave, I'm taking pizza, pasta, wine, olive oil, tomatoes, the foundations of philosophy and law, best art, music and the Godfather movies with me.
