Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
There is a reason why we identify our enemy with thier ideology. The enemies ideology is what motivates them to wage war. One of the definitions of jihad is holy war. So we identify them as Islamic extremist because that is what they are.

1 Thessalonians1. God is planning a messy, mass murder in "the wrath to come" and only Jesus can save you from it. 1:10
2. Christians shouldn't mourn the death of their fellow believers. They'll be OK and you'll see them later in heaven. The people you should mourn are dead nonbelievers. They have no hope (because they're going to hell). 4:13
5:17Jesus strongly approves of the law and the prophets. He hasn't the slightest objection to the cruelties of the Old Testament.
Jesus recommends that to avoid sin we cut off our hands and pluck out our eyes. This advice is given immediately after he says that anyone who looks with lust at any women commits adultery.
1 Paul, Silas and Timothy,
To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
Grace and peace to you.
Thanksgiving for the Thessalonians' Faith
2 We always thank God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers. 3 We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
4 For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you, 5because our gospel came to you not simply with words, but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake. 6 You became imitators of us and of the Lord; in spite of severe suffering, you welcomed the message with the joy given by the Holy Spirit. 7 And so you became a model to all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia. 8 The Lord's message rang out from you not only in Macedonia and Achaia—your faith in God has become known everywhere. Therefore we do not need to say anything about it, 9 for they themselves report what kind of reception you gave us. They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, 10 and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath.
Please point out how "1. God is planning a messy, mass murder in "the wrath to come" and only Jesus can save you from it. 1:10" equates to anything in this thread? It dos not as it is not telling anyone to kill unbelievers. In fact it is saying God will punish those who transgress in the end not mankind.
This has nothing to do with the thread or anything asked of you about radical Islam. Still no sign of Jesus telling Christians to go out and convert via the sword.
So no, it does not apply.
If you knew even the slightest bit about Christianity you would have known this. Of course cutting and pasting from the Internet fragments you know nothing about is easier, right?
You know if you actually asked a Christian what we believe, you would not come off as ignorant.
I mean if the "skeptics Bible" web site thinks everything said in the Bible is literal, they are pretty stupid and not a good choice to learn from.
