    Those would be the police that the gun-toters insist always arrive too late? Would a Muslim-looking person carrying a gun for self-defence be jumped on like the old black guy, or just be shot on sight?

    Right, like pissin-n-moanin about a movie is going to solve anything. They can either call the cops, or STFU.

    Yes, maybe it's title could be "Killing Christians For Allah", and we could rename this one "Killing Hadjis for Jesus".

    Except that I haven't, not once, heard one of our soldiers say anything whatsoever, about Jesus, when on the battlefield.

    The same sort of thing has happened before....hell, Italian American groups protested The Godfather back in the 70's.

    Somebody is always butthurt...and life goes on.

    I went a and watched the movie yesterday...good flick.
    It wasnt anti-muslim.

    The folks referred to as savages were certainly savages...of that there is no doubt

    The movie makes it crystal clear why kyle fights...and it has zero to do with "killing jihad is for Jesus"

    Gotta love the 1st amendment arguments coming out already

    Glad to hear that Lizzie. Which battlefields over there were you at?

    Google William Boykin, US Army, General type.

    Only in the right-wing mind is pointing out threats against innocent people an "attack on the first amendment."

    Which battlefields were you at? I was in Afghanistan, does that mean my opinion is much more qualified than Lizzie's? I read the book and watched the movie, and while Chris Kyle was religious, it in no way seemed to be the driving motivation behind his actions. His actions seemed to be driven by being a red blooded alpha male whose job it was to enact violence on our behalf, and that he did very well.

    I think both wars were a tremendous mistake, but making **** up just to smear soldiers is kind of lame, isn't it? This isn't a Christian jihad.
