    yep. exactly the same. just another fringe extremist group of another religion
    include snake handling and pedophilla, too, when it comes to extremist Christian activities. please ask me to prove it

    Well these Islamic practitioners are in the news a great deal for a variety of crimes against human rights. Do we really need another list of recent Islamic atrocities in order to make the point?
    no, these duke students who are denied what Christian students enjoy, access to the bell tower for call for prayer, are islamic practitioners but in no way violating human rights
    but prove me wrong

    Certainly, but they are part of a group which supports the discrimination of women, Gays, little girls receiving an education, public flogging or death for criticizing Islam, terrorism, and the list goes on.
    you do not know what they support other than they follow the islamic teachings

    Rather than making ridiculous comparisons between 'evangelical Christians' and Islam, wouldn't it be wiser to actually take a stand and say that this sort of behavior by Muslims is unacceptable and that Muslims should clean up there own act before any public celebration of their faith is accepted?
    there is much to be celebrated about their faith, just as there is about Christianity. we should not act against the innocent only because some extremist practitioners of their faith commit unconscionable acts ... true for Muslims and Christians
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    No, it wouldn't. In fact it's okay to criticize Christians and is done all the time.

    You need to read more carefully.
    you do not know what they support other than they follow the islamic teachings
    If they are Muslims and in the MSA I think we can easily assume what they support. The same would be true if they were members of the Communist Party, the Nazi Party or the KKK.
    there is much to be celebrated about their faith
    Much, huh? Then you shouldn't have any problem pointing out what should be celebrated.
    just as there is about Christianity. we should not act against the innocent only because some extremist practitioners of their faith commit unconscionable acts ... true for Muslims and Christians
    I'd have more confidence in this group if they were actually denouncing Islamic extremists from the tower rather than insisting they celebrate their hate filled belief system from a Christian University.However Duke has reversed their decision and will soon learn, within the next few years certainly, just what they have done.
