    If you're looking for a one word answer, how about "abortion"?

    Otherwise, if for the sake of discussion we agree that the US is a "Christian nation" as so many people claim, I would say that much harm is brought by this Christian nation, including torture and military aggression. Professional deception has much to do with most americans being deceived about what really happened 13 years ago, so I do understand the enthusiasm most folks feel about the War On Terror, but YES, I do feel that many Christians need a serious "examination of conscience", as to what is done in their name and with their tax dollars by the government.

    Just because you're not aware of it, does not mean it doesn't exist. It's there. It has been there. Condemnation and discussion on these attacks is taking place in the homes of millions of Muslims. To suggest otherwise is absolutely ridiculous.

    The word is tenets, not tenants.

    Check your dictionary.

    If you can use the word 'crusade', why can't others use it?

    Well BO says america isn't a christian nation so I'm not really sure who is doing things in the name of Christianity?? What exactly is being done in the name of Christianity with my tax dollars? The feds do a lot of things with my money that I absolutely don't agree with, but in the name of Christ?? I don't see it.

    There is no American action done in the "name of Christianity" or the name of Jesus. This is not a religious war to us. Maybe it is to a portion of Muslim extremists, but over here, it's a secular issue. This country is not a "Christian nation". The majority of citizens may be Christian, but we don't live in a theocracy, and we aren't fighting terrorism on the basis of religious ideology.

    The myth that Muslims simply stand idle as terrorism attacks happen is nonsense. Muslim police officers and firefighters helped during 9/11. Muslim nurses healed the victims of the Boston bombings. Muslims risk their lives every single day fighting terrorism. Millions more demonstrate against terrorism. Many more denounce attempts to radicalize them. Why people still push the bull**** lie that Muslims "are silent" while these attacks are going on is beyond me. It may be genuine run of the mill ignorance. However, when some of the people doing it are self admitted Islamophobes, one can't help but think that there is something far more sinister behind their words.
    There are many good people who are Muslims. That important point should not be ignored. The extreme acts carried out by Islamist terrorists should not be used to define the character of all Muslims.

    Also, yesterday's edition of The New York Times profiled an Islamic scholar who teaches a perspective that differs greatly from that advanced by the radical Islamists.

    That's your opinion, which you're entitled to and others, including me, choose to ignore.
