    It is among Muslims.
    While radical Christians may not be as violent at the radical Muslims now, they do have their violent members. People who have killed abortion clinic doctors, gays and muslims. There are radical Christians on the TV and radio calling for the killing of world leaders. A lot of the Christian activities are mostly passive aggressive. However, that is not the point. 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.

    You don't get the simple point that all Muslims are not like the radical Muslims. What would you like the US to do? Ban Islam? Muslims have a right in this country to build mosques and practice their religion. If they break the law, they face our judicial system like everyone else does.

There have been attacks on US mosques by radical Christians. I don't see that your point is a valid one.

    The preacher didn't have much support, except in that his free speech rights were defended. As for these radical Christian groups, who are they, and where are they? Certainly, if they exist, they would be making headline news.

    I didn't blame the president. You must have a guilty conscious for him.
    However, I do blame the president for being a weak shill.

    Yeah, that's what Osama Bin Laden and most of Al Queda's leadership said. We could ask them if they still feel that way, but of course they're dead so we can't.

    Who is accusing All Muslims of being Terrorists? Are you playing with terminology now? First you said radicals. Now you say terrorists. What is the explanation as to attack Buddhist Monks and Burn down their temples and their homes. Uhm These arent Westerners now.....are they?

    Well FIRST lets look at your current grasp of History shall we? Christianity being the older of the 2 religions has only been around 2000 years and in it's modern incarnation ony about 1000. Islam and Muslims didn't come into being as a religion until the 7th Century C.E. so your premise of Muslims Killing Coptic Christians for 2-3000 years is false. And COPTIC Christianity hasn't been around as the basic faith so that is false premise #2. But as to your basic thought process it was CHRISTIANS who first began to wage war on ISLAM starting in 1118 with Richard the Lion Hearted and his Crusades, which by the way there have been 13 which covered a time span of more than 500 years and ranged from the Northern African Nations all the way to Turkey. So if you are going to be pointing fingers at who's been killing whom and who started it learn history first and then look at how many fingers point backward as you point 1 forward.

    Actually, you just said that you do not want to learn anything about Muslims.

    It is almost as if you are taking pride in your ignorance.

The only non-Muslims I have ever really seen in stories like that are drug cartels - which, I assume you also defend.

    At some point political correctness has to give way to the reality that Muslims (and the drug cartels) are clearly not behaving like everyone else. That doesn't mean all Muslims (and drug cartel members) are terrorists, murderers, etc. but enough of them are and it is accepted to make it a reasonable characteristic of the group.
    Let's use you own analogy to explain how absurd and wrong your position is. Mexican drug cartel violence is rampant. By your logic, ALL Mexicans are to blame. Doesn't make sense.

    This may help you learn more about the Christian terrorists:
    Christian terrorism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "During the twentieth century, members of extremist groups such as the Army of God began executing attacks against abortion clinics and doctors across the United States.[67][68][69] A number of terrorist attacks were attributed to individuals and groups with ties to the Christian Identity and Christian Patriot movements, including the Lambs of Christ.[70] A group called Concerned Christians were deported from Israel on suspicion of planning to attack holy sites in Jerusalem at the end of 1999, believing that their deaths would "lead them to heaven."[71][72] The motive for anti-abortionist Scott Roeder murdering Wichita doctor George Tiller on May 31, 2009 was a belief that abortion is criminal and immoral, and that this belief went "hand in hand" with his religious beliefs.[73][74] The Centennial Olympic Park bombing in 1996, as well as subsequent attacks on an abortion clinic and a lesbian nightclub, were made by Eric Robert Rudolph; Michael Barkun, a professor at Syracuse University, considers Rudolph to likely fit the definition of a Christian terrorist, whereas James A. Aho, a professor at Idaho State University, argues instead that Rudolph was inspired only in part by religious considerations.[75]

    Hutaree was a Christian militia group based in Adrian, Michigan. In 2010, after an FBI agent infiltrated the group, nine of its members were indicted by a federal grand jury in Detroit on charges of seditious conspiracy to use of improvised explosive devices, teaching the use of explosive materials, and possessing a firearm during a crime of violence.[76] On March 28, 2012, the conspiracy charges were dismissed.[77] Terrorism scholar Aref M. Al-Khattar has listed The Covenant, The Sword, and the Arm of the Lord, Defensive Action, The Freemen Community, and some "Christian militia" as groups that "can be placed under the category of far-right-wing terrorism" that "has a religious (Christian) component"."

    This quote from Wikipedia is just the modern day Christian terrorist groups in the US. There is much more information in the link. I suggest you educate yourself a bit on it.
