    BTW, the religion that most prisoners are getting these days, by far, is Islam. Mostly of the Louis Farrkhan variety.

    Just sayin'.

    I don't think that is true. Most converts in prison are of the Christian variety as they have a huge presence in prisons around the country. Support programs etc.

    Again, please support your claim. I'm not asking for much.

    Not exactly in the name of atheism, but certainly for religious beliefs.

    Asking someone to re-hash history is hardly a substitute for coherent debate; you continue to obfuscate and avoid the OBVIOUS.

    In other words, your feigning to be ignorant of the events leading to the take over of the Russian Government by the Communists and their subsequent pogroms and murders is disingenuous.

    We'll just take that as a "no".

    Why wonder when you can "google" it or go to the Library?

    "Innocent lives" equates to the people who were working in the World Trade Center who were murdered by desperate terrorists whom people like you appear to defend, for no other reason than they were Americans.
    But you don't give 2 ****es about the 10s of thousands of innocent lives wasted in Iraq... funny how that works out.

    I find your desperate rhetoric specious in that you presume to suggest that these murderous thugs even had a reason to do what they do. You keep referring to OUR actions as if these thugs even need a reason to conduct their murder and terror, other than we are Americans and not Muslim.
    I find your desperate rhetoric specious in that you presume to suggest that these murderous thugs just woke up one morning and decided, for no reason to get together and kill some Americans by hijacking a few planes... give me a break, the intellectual dishonesty is strong in this one.
    Hmm... I'd never heard that they want to kill us because we are Americans... I thought it was because they hate our freedom?

    There are plenty of xians who hate muslims simply because they are muslim. Why don't they go fly a plane into a mosque? Lack of religious conviction? I mean, you gotta hand it to the jihadists, that do have religious conviction... As far as I can tell, that and liberalization of xianty... You can thank the liberal mind for for that change in aggressive attitude in xianity.

    You’re profound only in your own mind, but your arguments suggest someone who has little information, is historically ignorant and most likely to operate on an emotional level rather than intellectual.
