"If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself." ~ Martin Heidegger
SO some nutballs (who happen to be Muslim) did something bad, nothing new
i just drank with some neighborhood friends last night, they happen to be Muslim, i survived just fine, go figure
so nonsensical making this about religion and not about what actually happened and the nutballs that did this, i always laugh at dishonest, biased, uneducated nonsense like this.
As long as the "reasonble" and more "tolerant" Muslim leaders continue to cower in fear of the more radical element.....it will remain a religion "ruled" by radicals and extemists.......and will continue to br judged thusly.
Unfortunately, the world judges us by our actions .......not just by what we "say we believe."
And, btw, I'm just as disgusted by any Christian who would perform such unGodly acts in the name of my God.

Yes, we can see that on these boards with all the denial going on, as well as the blaming all their actions on others. These are not adults we're dealing with, just old children having another tantrum.If you had any idea what you were talking about you'd know that most muslim religious establishments would condemn violence against those of other faith.
And most of the 9/11 attackers were from Saudi Arabia (as was bin laden) - which is an INCREDIBLY repressive country.
Among many examples - it is the only country in the entire world where it is illegal for women to drive.
Religion is the outlet for most of these people's anger - not the source of it.
And those that do it not out of anger - are probably just nuts.
