    Could you expand on this a bit? I'm not sure where you were going with this and what you are believing my beliefs to be.

    Especially considering the world-wide rape, assault, oppression, murder and destruction committed in its name_

    ie; They were simply taking advantage of an opportunity to punish their perceived enemy; a Christian!

    But, I wonder what would happen if a pro-life home-owner complained about a black worker in their home because they assumed he was most likely a democrat and therefore pro-choice?!

    I'm afraid I have no response to such an amazing well thought out argument_ ..........

    Correct; but only because I'm not a member of the Christian Faith nor any other for that matter_

    For what its worth, I don't have a dog in this fight PoRob; I'm simply pointing out the obvious_

    And some would have us believe the selective tolerance by liberals is a myth_
    Most countries worldwide subsidize their education systems to some degree. Those that don't will end up being erased from the map............................

    The Christian Bible says that "an eye for an eye" is also a justified course of action sometimes_

    I would imagine a good Christian knows when it's appropriate to turn the other cheek and when it's appropriate to demand an the eye for an eye_

    IMO the Christians are well aware that the apology by those who hate them is insincere and meaningless and it's only a matter of time before a similar incident occurs again, either here or somewhere else_

    Perhaps the Christians believe that plucking enough of their enemies eyes out will teach them a lesson which they don't seem to be learning from turning the other cheek_

    I was agreeing with you by providing my take on the related liberal policy of "selective tolerance"_

    ie; don't worry, we're on the same page_____I think?!

    "turned on" ??? Are you seriously asking if Christians get sexually aroused reading bible passages?

    Such irrational hatred as this has totally destroyed your credibility pertaining to sensible discussion!

    Seriously dude, can such words as these be motivated by anything other than hate?!

    Occam's razor__I thought I made that quite clear several posts back Gimme!

    Although I suppose the long history of far-left attacks on Christianity was a dead giveaway as well_

    Um, disbelief mixed with humor....and a lot of pity.

    Not Occam, but jumping to conclusions.

    And I hate to break it to you, but this wasn't an "attack". As I said, people with irrational beliefs often come to delusional conclusions.

    Hatred would be displayed by lynching or burning someone at the stake......or shooting someone at an abortion clinic.


    Besides, you brought up getting an eye, a pound of flesh....
