    84 children. Eighty freaking four kids are dead. None of them will see their adult years and all for what? All for you to make some snide comment about a quote you took out of context? Get the hell out of here.
    Potshot? Did she, or did she not state we should empathize with these people? That's no potshot sir, it's a direct hit, and well deserved.

    If we have to compare religions we can, but Islam happens to be the furthest behind the curve when it comes to the relationship between education and religion. And you know that is factual, all one has to do is observe how they view the role of men to women to get very clear reasoning on how adversarial education must be to Islamic teachings. All you have to do is observe how willing the Taliban (and other organizations of the like) are to harm kids to ensure their path is the dominant one. All you have to do is observe who is kidnaping young girls, some prepubescent, only to find them as married off to adult men, or traded, or gifted. Education would present alternatives to all of that and it supports the notion very well that education is adversarial to religion (even though I will concede that not all religions end up violent about it.)
    He is completely wrong. He did not specifically say Islam. What part of that are you missing? He said religion in general which is nothing but an untrue blanket statement, period.

    I'm not going to have this discussion on what Hillary said in the same thread discussing the matter of close to a 100 dead children. The fact my post stood out to you instead of the number of dead children speaks volumes about you, ding dong.

    in Peshawar (Khyber Pass) Near Waziristan / Army Compound school. It's revenge for the recent offensive against the Pakistani TTP Taliban; but not new

    Militants have repeatedly targeted Peshawar in response to Pakistani military offensives, like a 2009 truck bombing of a popular marketplace frequented by women and children that killed more than 100 people

    Pervez Khattak, chief minister of the northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, said over 80 of the injured are children ranging from 12 to 16 years of age. He added that two of the attackers are now dead -- one blew himself up, while the other was killed by security forces.

    Earlier, Shahram Khan, the province's health minister, told CNN that two teachers and an army official had also been killed, while 104 more were wounded.

    The Pakistan military said a rescue operation involving its troops is currently underway at the school, with gunfire still being exchanged.

    Khattak said there was an "ongoing hostage situation."

    Pakistan has pretty much over the years granted the Taliban a safe haven in their country. So this doesn't surprise me.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    You've hardly sparked any reaction from me other than a sigh. If there's any reaction to be had in this thread it is shock or horror to the OP.

    But I take it dead children don't matter to you?

    A sigh? Yeah right, that's why you're responding to my posts.

    Of course dead children matter to me, all dead children. Are you "pro-choice"?

    But it is not wrong, all we are talking about is adversarial severity. Islam is willing to kill kids over the matter, as we have seen in the Taiban (and other groups) killing kids at a school. Other religions are not likely to do all this (granted today's attitudes in some religions are vastly different than their history.) While it does not involve killing anyone, we have plenty in the US that suggests religion is adversarial to education. Just at a high level and as one example, that is the root of the evolution vs. creationism debate.

    A response to a post hardly means anything. Flies are insignificant too but we still swat them.

    I am Pro-choice, but that hardly matters in light of the 80 children that were recently gunned down. Quit trying to divert the topic, because at this point it is becoming quite obvious that you don't care about a single one of these children, ding dong.
