    As the President said:
    I mean really, the lengths conservatives will go to claim Obama is wrong is disheartening.
    You have to expect this 24/7/365--it's what they've proven to be.
    Mark each new day on the calendar and the latest lows they go to and realize that each new day they will try to outdo each other.
    This is what the right-wing hate machine has become.

    Oh NIMBY. Dont' be such a drama queen. You don't have to do battle. Live, love and laugh. It's much, much better for you. And besides, ISIS is Islamic in origen - or did you think they got their inspiration from Jerry Falwell?

    Re: Obama: "ISIL Is Not Islamic"

    If you claim to be Christian, but don't believe Jesus is God, are you really Christian?
    If you claim to be a follower of Judism, but you don't observe the sabbath, are you really a follower of Judism?
    If you claim to be Buddist, but you don't believe in karma or reincarnation, are you Buddist?

    I think that's what Obama was saying. If you claim to be a follower of Islam, but you kill innocent children, are you really a follower of Islam? Obama is saying that ISIL is not because they do not actually follow important Islamic teachings.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    ISIS is to Islam as Westboro is to Christianity.

    ISIL is not Islamic and America is not a Christian nation.

    The chasm in your analogy is prodigious.

    Isis is to Islam as Robert Bales is to Christian Crusader.
