    We don't try to excuse their behavior because of their religious beliefs. We judge them based on their actions.
    Widespread condemnation? Hardly. More like Widespread Denial!! I have only heard 2-3 Christians even ad mit that these Christian Terrorists ARE Christians. They claim a 'True Christian' wouldn't do such things. THAT my friend is denial. In fact MOST Americans aren't even aware of these groups because there affiliation with Christianity is kept low key and there actions aren't as publicized as Muslim extremists are. ANY terrorist, be they Christian, Muslim or Jewish is WRONG and should be condemned but do not condemn an entire race of people or an entire faith because of the actions of a VERY small group of radicals.

    As a quasi-pacifist, I don't attack first, but I do definitely respond in kind. You can forgive all you want. You can martyr yourself. I don't really care about your religion, anymore than I care about anyone elses. What you do in the name of your religion, if it causes harm to someone else, is what I care about.

    Still, you could stand to immitate me in some respects. Like my tolerance of the Islamic faith, for example.
    Assuming are we. Flattening yourself over it too. Not to mention I doubt that a Warrior on the battlefield would look at you or any pacifist as a model of courage.

    Now I might consider you so.....Should you stand up in front of 2 or 3 hundred Muslims to teach them humilty and tolerance.

    I've believed, and have been saying for years, that religion and politics are but two sides of the same coin.

    Yeah, it's like blaming all Nazis in 1940 for Hitler, the holocaust and WWII. You can't lambast all Nazis in that time frame for the actions of the radicals. Same with the KKK. People so unfairly lambast anyone in the KKK when actually very few ever kill anyone. Even of those who attacked our Libyan embassy, most didn't actually kill anyone so it is wrong to call them all "terrorists." We should be very careful to stress we only meant the attackers who hurt someone. We must be fair to everyone. Sensitivity training should be the #1 priority of our military too, because their job is fairness towards others.

    I don't fit in. I see world circumstances similar to the early 1930s. A massive group of poor people giving themselves a superiority status, declaring all the world is picking on them, rapidly arming and declaring the true enemies are Jews, gays and anyone who isn't one of them. Unfortunately, we have Neville Chamberlain as our leader. And, unfortunately, this time we are going to wait until the other side has nuclear weapons.

    Maybe that is Obama's long term solution to global warming. Nuclear winter after Islamic summer and Islamic fall, Islamic spring now in the past.

The point is, you can't blame all Muslims or all Christians for what their radical members do. It is dishonest and it solves no problems.
    Yes notice the differences in Numbers with those Christians that go after Abortion Clincs. Do you see mobs of them burning down everything in sight attacking others from other relgions like they did in Egypt. Rioting attacking police, Military troops, and each other.

    Are you saying that Muslims have some sort of medical condition where they fall off into berserker mode and for some reason cannot be brought back down to reality.

    Cuz I know a cure.

You Do understand That the Prophet Mohammad was killing Muslams before they became followers of Islam.....correct?

    Have Muslims attacked in Russia and the Balkans? The Answer is yes. Europe, yes. Asia, yes. Far East, Yes. Middle East, Yes. US, yes but not mob action. Canada, Yes but not mob action. Central America and South America I have no stats on. But I doubt they would Riot in Mexico and Colombia.....knowing what would take place should they do so. Think the Laws there will prosecute them? What about the Drug Cartels what do you think they will do if they should even go after one Christian Church? Just One. What do you think happens if they should kill one Priest?
    Christians Before Rome? Ummm you do realize Rome was around 450 years PRIOR to modern Christianity right? As far as Christians before Jesus well that would have been the followers of Serapis who were called Christians BEFORE the advent of the followers of Jesus and the Leaders of the Serapean Faith were called 'Bishops of Christ' and they existed until after the time of Nero. The 'Egyptian Christians' that you refer to would have been followers of Horus ,Isis and Osiris who by the way WERE called Christians BEFORE the followers of Jesus were. And as far as Mohommed killing 'Muslims' before they became followers of Islam Yes there was quite a bit of killing done in the name of Islam during that time, just as Constantine and the Christian Church of the 3-5 Centuries killed countless thousands for not believeing in Christianity. And even made learning to read a crime punishable by death. Also to take a bath was condemned by the early church as was punishable by Either flogging or depending upon the locale...death as well. Islam doesn't have a corner on the Murder market. Christianity has done its share. In Fact during the Inquistions (not just the Spanish Inquistion) it has been estimated that between 900,000 - 1.5 MILLION people were killed by the Christian Church for being 'heretics'. We can sit here swapping who killed who and how many all day. I admit ALL FAITHS have a history of Murder and killing and violence to advance it's agenda. NONE of them are innocent on that front. But we no longer live in the Middle ages or the Bronze ages. We live ina more enlightened Society where murder isn't tolerated by the Vast majority of people. We have to condemn violence by any and ALL people regardless whether they are Muslim, Christian or Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. As far as Terrorists attacking Colombi and other countries where drug Cartels hold sway, well that's because most of those countries don't bother to interfere with the Middle East and their affairs. IF Colombia or Puru or Argentina decided to tell say, Hezbalah, what they should believe in and attempt to control their actions you better believe there would be attacks in those countries. So your premise is not only shaky it verges on the laughable.
