There is no separation of religion and politics and nor can there be.
of course there can be, particularly if one does not adhere to a religious belief.

Lmao what? Yeah, you can take it as read that religion doesn't interfere with politics if it doesn't exist. Otherwise if the electorate is religious to any extent, it always will

Well if he believes Christians are stoning people, that doesn't make him a Brummie, it makes him a Dummie. But if he knows it is not true, but touts it anyway, it doesn't make him a Grass, it makes him an Ass.

Problem is that big majority of Muslims support those actions...Which is not the case among the Christians.

Ah yes, they are called today "Moderate Muslims"

I don't believe they are. But they're lynching and shooting and until very recently gassing them.

I don't know if facts are important to you, but for your information, that is actually Levitical law and is not practiced in Christianity. In fact, Jesus Christ put an end to such practices - "Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." - John 8. I don't really see any admonishment in Christianity to kill. Do you, or am I asking the wrong person?
Well Jesus is quoted in the Koran, actually five times more often than Mohammed.
So should this prohibition also apply here?

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

Look at this friendly ginger Muslim. Friendly all the way up until he was arrested for sending violent threats to an MP who voted for airstrikes in Syria. It's always the converts who are the biggest lunatics.

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

I read the shooter in San Bernardino had debates with his coworkers about religion. And one topic debated was whether or not Islam is a religion of peace. Perhaps his opponent was way too convincing in the debate. In any case, he apparently conceded.

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

What a bizarre world we're living in. Explaining, rationalizing a terrorists action. How twisted can the logic go ? was the target of the act of terror legal ? Blame it on the victim or global warming.

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

Chris Herbert was only 19 when his vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb is Basra, Iraq, killing a friend, injuring another and leaving him as an amputee. It didn’t dent his sense of right and wrong, though.

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

Looks like Democrats are getting on board against this whole Sharia business:

http://www.politico.com/story/2015/1...rrorism-216656

And this story doesn't even mention Gen. Wesley Clark, one of Hillary's advisors, who called for internment camps for certain Muslims (an abhorrent idea, IMO).

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

And here is a Liberal Feminist, Joy Brighton, saying the whole family of a terrorist should be deported:

Makes me believe for a moment there may be sane and rational people on the left. But naw, that can't be, could it?

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

Please note:

Although I'm the original OP, I did not start this thread. My post has been taken from another thread and used to start this one although permission was never requested nor granted.

Are some of the mods American?

Now back to your discussion.

A good story in the face of all the hostility going on at the moment.

If people, all people of all races and religions, stand together then the fanatics don't stand a chance.
