    I would say 'many', at least on this thread. There seems to be quite a few deflecting from the topic of "ISIL Is Not Islamic" to the subject of Christianity. Why would that be?

    Directly, you bet.
    Would they if they could have--that's the difference between Obama dealing with 435 clowns in D.C. and Putin or ISIL going unchallenged.

    Some of their other tactics are almost as distasteful.
    Yet at the funerals of our fallen soldiers,
    we've seen some of these same conservatives on this thread outraged, and rigthtly so as I am.

    And if you judge all Christians based on that one church?

    Well said.

But we all know not all Saudis are terrorists or terrorist trainers, don't we? But that doesn't mean that we don't also hold Saudis responsible for what they produce and we urge them to do a better job of fighting against the radical elements in their society.

    How is wanting the 1.6 billion followers you reference to act a little more vocally and meaningfully against the radicals in their midst any different?

    Oh, did you ever read the Qur'an? All over the world it's MUSLIMS killing their neighbors be they Jewish, Christian or other Muslims. People like you like keep defending the savages until your bowing to the east. Wake up. They want us all dead.

    Well yeah you're cute. Probably think that you're removed from the rest of humanity in having never made a statement that an opportunist would exploit. You too think that Obama thinks that ISIS militants are Jews or Hindus, perhaps Episcopalian.
