    What patent idiocy does it take to fail to recognize the absolutely ENORMOUS amount of antisemitic and anti-Christian rhetoric coming from the Islamic world? It is pervasive, yet these shills persist in their blather as if it is the small amount of bigotry in one direction that is the problem and not the extreme degree of bigotry in the other.

Moreover, he has every right to run that vacation bible school even though I find it offensive and think he is teaching them very dangerous lies.
    I don't know .. Bacile claims to be Israeli and claims he is doing it for his country, Israel.

    Look where it's coming from. It comes from people who are unpatriotic and hate the United States, living vicariously through the extremists.

    Would you be outraged if some film maker made a trashy movie about the holocaust, or blood libel or any of that other libelous crud?
    As a descendant of holocaust survivors on both sides of my family, and consequently a significantly denuded family as a result yes those things tend to offend me. But I would never think to ban their right to make a trashy racist movie. Not for that matter would I kill them over it, but that really isn't the point as far as freedom of speech is concerned.

    Read 'em and weep:
    This isn't a liberal mantra. It is a mantra of the illiberal portion of the left, instead. There is much antisemitism in the left to be sure, but it arises from those who do not follow liberal principles and are simply reacting to a degree of personal self-loathing by identifying with anything that opposes the west.

    How exactly does it offend you? How does some guys Bible School, that you don't have to attend, give you offence? What is your personal offence? Because others are Christians, your Agnostic position is threatened?

    The same argument is used by Liberals about gay marriage. Heteros are "offended" over the afront to the institution of marriage. But how are they personally offended? Does it devalue the traditional ritual? Does it mean that their regular marriages are somehow insulted?

    It's all relative. People are always "offended" for no reason, but it boils down to a personal discomfort that either you feel you are missing out on something or feel the need to defend a soul belief of who you are as if "they" are on the attack.

    Yep. Disgruntled people blame anybody but themselves for the state of their lives, and so side with these illiberal, knuckle dragging Neanderthals in their shared hatred against the west.

    No question about that.

    Even Romney doesn't know when to shut up.
