    There is nothing false about Islam being a religion.Islam is just as much as a religion as Christianity,Mormonism, Catholicism, Judaism and so on.

    Religion | Define Religion at Dictionary.com
    1.
    a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.
    2.
    a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects:
    the Christian religion; the Buddhist religion.
    3.
    the body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs and practices:
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Little five sucks these days. The only thing that isn't a tourist trap is junkman's daughter

    Now back when I first saw kmfdm ... That place was so different with the wiccan and other types of shops

    The new place is in south Atlanta.

Perhaps Kennesaw has an ordinance that will not allow a place of worship within a perdetermined distance to a gun store or range and they are just all out of space.
    Religion is protected in the bill of rights, liquor is not.

    Nope! Definitely it's not. Not even close!


    As for laws, well our current President has taught us that laws we don't like won't be enforced. Hey, he set the precedent. Don't like a law? Ignore it until your decision gets overturned in court.
    I wouldn't blame Obama only. I think the system has been headed that way for awhile, now. Hadn't considered that POV before --- but I can see that area being more inclined to vigilante justice.

    Cumming looks like any suburban area in American complete with retail shopping as far as the eye can see. They have a Rosatl's Pizza there where we can finally get real Chicago food.
    I know that place! The folks are big fans of Nick n' Jim's BBQ around the corner...
    (Not to derail thread... Just nice to be reminded of home)

    But if you have spent enough time here you may understand how it could very well be for their own good. The art of deception thru semantics is largely lost here.
    Either 1) They can spot pure BS from a mile away, or 2) They have no clue what you're talking about. While I believe #1 is the majority...

    Either way-- outcome is the same.

    Sugar coated bull**** is a northern dish imported from california.
    Here's where we disagree.

    As a current Oregonian, I can attest that here ( and at least Northern Cali) you won't find much sugarcoated anything...

    The produce rocks all by itself!

    Wow you're intellectually dishonest.

    Islam is a false religion, yet it is really a religion.

    Geocentrism is a false model of the solar system, yet it is really a model of the solar system.

    How many people say this? And what do they mean by a "sharia court?" Because folks like yourself will pick out the most heinous parts of the Quran and assume that "sharia court" includes that, but if I do the same regarding the Old Testament, I'm a bad person apparently.

    So I need more details.

    In any case, who cares if some religious people want to enforce their religion onto everyone else? Just don't let them do that. In America, we have this thing called the constitution. If we stick with it, we wont have a problem with sharia law, or jewish law, or buddhist law.
