    But somehow in the west and predominantly Christian countries you feel free to comment about Christian Fundamentalists without fear of car bombs. The same can be said for all the other major religions of the world. This is a clue.

    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    I'll be waiting here until you back up your claim.


    Don't hold your breath while you're waiting.

    IOW: I don't have time to waste on you.

    Islam is not the only religion to be exemplified by its extremists; however, it certain is right now. Which is why nobody is denying that fundamentalism is a problem.

    To reiterate his point, in mostly Christian countries, we can voice criticisms with ought worrying about being blown up, or a school house being hosed down. See a pattern?

    Where did we stick our noses, prior to 9/11?

    Islam isn't a race, so puh-leeeese stop with the accusations of racism.

    Yes and it was a clever dodge. I'll give you that.

    What did it dodge?

    Yes, in the Muslim world, you are exponentially much more likely to be killed for expressing anti-Muslim views than for expressing anti-Christian views in a majority Christian country. The Muslim world is in dire need of an enlightenment. NOBODY IS CLAIMING OTHERWISE.

    However, the implication is that the problem is inherent with Islam, rather than fundamentalist interpretations. And to that, I point to several centuries of pretty rotten Christian behavior as a rebuttal. Fundamentalism is the problem.

    I can point to the past 13 centuries of Islamic violence. Top that.

    And I can point to Crusades, witch trials, inquisitions and numerous other atrocities that occured before Christians decided to straighten up and fly right. You're still missing the point.
