    The 1970s is modern enough. Not to mention that the catholic church has yet to apologise for its role in the regime. Is the Lords Resistance Army not current enough for you?

    You fail.
    Nor have American Muslims so your point is pointless.

    IF you think discriminating against your fellow countrymen is justified then I think you might want to learn more about our Constitution, about our history and about right and wrong.

    Actually I believe it is YOU who has given in to terrorism by living in fear and by being OK with the destruction of our Constitution.

    Ever hear of "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death"? Do you disagree? Patrick Henry said it more than 200 years ago and it has stood the test of time.

    When I become miraculously impressed by your failing morality, then I will take note of your opinions of how I view right and wrong.

    I have absolutely no problem with profiling criminals. It was old grey haired white women or middle aged african americans who are known for hijacking planes.

    It's muslims in traditional muslim garb. Sorry you have such a difficult time with the realities we face in airport security these days.

    And you still fail to make any case whatsoever for this absurd notion that Christians are anywhere near as violent, worldwide, as Muslims.

    Were they beheading people and posting it on youtube or hijacking planes? Did the Pope make a call for such violence and make the small conflict a "catholic" thing throughout the world? You score no points with such irrelevance.

    You wanna talk about the Catholic/Protestant conflict in Ireland, too? As if that would be anymore relevant to this discussion.

    I respectfully disagree. The moral of the story is that the terrorists win every time bigotry is tolerated due to their threats. Preserving our Constitution is a lot more important to me than allowing morons on a plane to shout "FIRE" which is what they did and what the Constitution does not allow.

    So, the terrorists "win" when they do successfully attack us and they "win" when we enact laws that you and other characterize as bigoted and they "win" when we behave in ways that you and others believe is bigoted and they "win" when, well, will they ever lose?

    I see that gnashing going on over this and yeah, I'm frustrated that this transpired, but seriously, if the terrorists can never "lose" by your lights, well, what are you proposing we do about terrorism?

    No one is tolerating bigotry; only suggesting that tighter controls and good sense come first and useless idealogy over "oooh but the terrorists will win if we ________" be set aside.

    Word. I'm not sure why "profiling" has gotten such a bad rap. Profiling ain't racial/ethnic screening.

    And you still fail to make any case whatsoever for this absurd notion that Christians are anywhere near as violent, worldwide, as Muslims.
    Do you really expect them to stop such absurd equivalencies?

    People like that poster simply hate Christians more than they hate terrorists so they take every opportunity to smear Christians. It's the same with idiots that blame all religion for terrorism when it's clear that only Muslims are waging a global terror war.

    Care to show us when Muslims in traditional Muslim garb hijacked a plane in the USA? Save our Constitution and stop giving in to terrorists. Your sort of thinking is what terrorists want. They're beating you and you've been swallowed into their trap.
