    Islam will eventually go through the same reformation that Christianity did, when the planet gets sick of putting up with their crap.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You mean we aren't at that point now? It also takes leadership I think, and we are woefully lacking today.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Obviously this meme of theirs is intended to shut down criticism of Israeli policy, and is as cheap as Sharpton and Jackson rolling out the race card every time someone attempts criticism of a black man. Anti-semitism exists, racism exists, but they don't drive ALL critiques.

    No, we're not. It takes Muslims living in a secular society that reins in their religious craziness. That isn't the case in most of the Middle East, where they live in virtual theocracies, where the religion rules the roost. So long as the religion wields political and social power, they can never grow up.

    The point was to excuse islamic terrorism. What was accomplished was an exhibition in absolute ignorance.

That is not to say none of them ever does things no Islamic authority approves, but in general their savagery is right in line with Mohammed's own extremely violent career.

    It would have been more accurate of Mr. B. Hussein Obama to say that most of the people in the world who identify themselves as Muslims are only as peaceful and tolerant as they are because they don't observe their religion very conscientiously. Who does he think he is, to claim the tenets of Islam really are not what its official texts say they are?
    Have you read the old testament?

    You and Obama, a genuine liar, should get off your own high horses and admit to all the lies made, and the lies swallowed, by liberals such as yourself..
    You have a poor memory. And to be honest, ACA has been better than your side's fear mongering has portrayed.
