    I think in terms of risks to your life, beheading is about one notch above death by alien abduction. Of course I have always thought it was funny when a guy that smokes 2 packs a day never leaves home unarmed out of fear they may need to defend their life.

    I agree, but I doubt the woman would agree with you on that.

    Oh, yes, the Branch Davidians. The Seven Seals (I think?) and all that. I remember that Friday outside of Waco very well.

In my experience, that often is not the case. Islam is treated by a different standard, and the reason it is treated by a different standard, is because those who pay it undue reverence, and walk on eggshells around those who practice it, are cowards when it comes to confronting what is a growing problem around the world.
    Most of the New Atheists like Dawkins, are more critical of Islam than any other religion. That said, what is accomplished by speaking out against Islam in general and not just radical Islamists? There are over a billion Muslims. If the president attacked Islam, all he is doing is deeply offending 1 billion people and confirming what the radical Islamists claim when they say that the west is at war with Islam.

    The left lives in denial.

    Thank you for illustrating my point so succinctly.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    The left will never catch on to irony - or sarcasm.

    Someone who criticizes a generalization with a generalization. Priceless...

    Regular London Police Officers don't carry firearms had these been a tactical squad confronted by a deadly weapon they would have likely used deadly force, or perhaps in your rush to lump **** on the US you forgot about the Brazilian subway goer in London not committing any crime except carrying a back pack who got shot and killed a couple of years back.
