    So it was nonsense that at the Democrat National Convention last week that half the members ( or more) voted to exclude "God" from the platform, and to not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel ? The appeasement of Islam by the Left is quite measureable. It is not abstract.

    For one thing, the link between the film and the attack is pure speculation.
    For another, we still do believe in the First amendment, don't we? I mean, we've attacked the fourth and the second, but I thought the first was still more or less intact.
    The dunderheads who suggested it obviously didn't think think this one through. Should the members of the Nation of Islam be prosecuted for the actions of the JDL? Would much of the population of Dearborn be behind bars if expressing religious intolerance were a capitol offense?

    The problem with this myopia is that when people suggest it in one direction, they fail to apply it in the other.

    Exploiting God in partisan politics is pretty low down.

    I don't think that has anything to do with the current situation.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    You don't really want to get into the whole issue of ignoring warning signs, do you? Especially not in light of the recent news coming out about the 9/11 attacks.

Is it also offensive to merely see them in their suits on Sunday in the church parking lots?

    I don't get it.

    Perhaps you should appreicate that the sciences in the West were absolutely pushed forward because of religion and that today it has evolved into a religion that does not go to war in the name of God. It's evolution. Religions do it too. Something the Middle East has refused to be a part of. Perhaps a religion that slaughhters in Gods name today should be what offends you. "God" in the West isn't hurting you at all.

    By the way, I don't believe in God at all. But the belief in it hardly offends me. Maybe the fact that believers and non-believers get so easily offended is why both are always pointlessly defending themselves in light of each other.
    I don't think I'm explaining myself clearly. The world is not here to serve me therefore I have to accept others belief even though it may offend me and does impact my life in negative ways. Stem cell research was halted under Bush for 8 years because of religion not science. Religion doesn't offend me because of what they do behind closed doors it's because of irrational s*** like this that could have a major impact on my life.

    What kind of nonsense is this ! Spare me any advice you have.

    Senator: Attacks 'have the markings' of al Qaeda revenge


    A member of the Senate intelligence committee on Wednesday raised the possibility that attacks on U.S. diplomatic missions in the Middle East and North Africa this week were connected to al Qaeda.

    Sen. Bill Nelson, Florida Democrat, said the attacks "have the markings of revenge by al Qaeda." He said they could be connected to the killing in June of Abu Yahya al-Libi, a top leader of the terrorist network.

    "In light of Monday night's Internet-video statement by the head of al Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, who urged Libyans to attack Americans to avenge the recent death of al-Libi, I am asking my colleagues on the Senate intelligence committee to immediately investigate what role al Qaeda or its affiliates may have played in the attacks in Libya and Egypt, and to urge appropriate action," Mr. Nelson said in a statement.

    Both the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, which is Libya's second-largest city, were attacked on Tuesday, with the Libyan incident claiming the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

    Al-Jazerra is reporting that our Ambassador died from smoke inhalation. Others are saying from the Fire. Libya has no real Army so the troops they sent were totally inadequate. They also raided the Embassy. Then let the protestors loot it while they slinked off into the night.

    Plus a few of them were killed outright.

    Clinton says lil group. I don't consider 300 a little group, I consider it an Assualt Force. Which this was!

    Excluding God from the platform has everything to do with the separation of church and state and nothing to do with Islam. It is those who INSIST on such language who are closer to Islamists in ideology as they also do not wish such a distinction -- the only difference being that one group pushes for a Christian God and the other a Muslim.
