    So it is just a gesture. What are we to make of it?

    Are you saying that Islam is more tolerant of same sex marriage? Or Gays? And on a thread where Muslims have murdered, or injured, over 20 people for no sane reason at al?

    Really, Lursa. What is your point?
    This is what I was responding to and I even bolded the part in particular that it applied to:

    Christians know and understand that tolerance is the cornerstone of any democracy and, in fact, were most influential in creating the modern democracies. Muslims consider democracy anathema to Islam.
    The same applies to most Muslims. They are not extremists. And I pointed out that Christianity has plenty of intolerant, ignorant members in the US.

    Lately? None. Historically? Plenty.

    And there are those that exist today, just in smaller numbers. Like the OK City bomber, like abortion clinic bombers....

    Today there are more moderate Christians and we've managed to keep our govt. mostly secular. Islam is in a great state of disruption, internally as well as externally.

    I dont make excuses for the terrorists anymore than I excuse the OK City bomber or perpetrators of the Inquisition. I just recognize that they are NOT the voice of ALL their religion and I dont paint them all with the same brush.

    It makes me ill to think that anyone could possibly think all Christians are like the pathetic mutts of the Westboro Church. I wont do that to all Muslims.

    It is desperation. They will mention Christianity as being the equivalent of Islam (of course that's false) but these were not Christians who were murdered in Paris, nor did Christianity figure in why they were murdered. But that's the way they want to try and justify these murders.

    Calling these people ignorant may seem rude but what other euphemisms are available which will properly capture this most recent act of terrorism and the response of the apologists?

    The simple fact that people are on about Jesus in a thread where 3 Extremist Fundamentalist Muslims shot 20 people says all you need to know.

    Bottom line: How much of this will we tolerate before we are willing to take the kind of actions necessary to eliminate this element from the planet?

    They've gone full Medieval. It will take the same to defeat them.

    The difference is, there is a vastly higher percentage of Muslims that sympathize and support these radicals than what you see in the Christian faith.

    I've heard figures at around 30 percent.
