    So a religion has to prove that it has done some good to be legal in your perfect world? Nice.

    Glad we have the Constitution in this jurisdiction. Freedom of religion and such.

    You can stick that progressive bull**** somewhere else
    Wow. I mean, do you have stats that back up anything you're saying here? Or is this just ramblings off the top of your head based on your own bias and bigotry. I've known several Muslims, none of them match your description. In fact, my Muslim roommate often volunteered in the local soup kitchen and homeless shelters in town. He liked it. How many Christians have done good? How many go out (as a percentage of the community) and actually work to improve the impoverished? I know several, but there are a lot more Christians than Muslims (in America), so relatively the number of Christians should be greater. And what does any of this have to do with the first amendment and property rights?

    Islam is at war. Islam is "the problem" - they made it so. They are the ones claiming to act in its name. Everywhere in this world that Islam comes into contact with any other religion, there is war. While there has been conflict in the past, today, Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists tend to get along fine

    How many hard corps members of the IRA do you think there were? I doubt it was ever more than 2k. It took them 30 years to kill 1,800. The GSJ managed twice that in a couple of hours.

    Nope, 90% ain't much of a stretch at all...

    You said 90% of significant terrorist incidents. Not deaths. Those 3,000 came from a single incident. As for number of members, the IRA is localized to Ireland and thus the available population to draw from is much smaller. Percentage wise though, it was rather large. Even so, with the IRA it was more Catholic vs. Protestant sort of thing whicih lasted till like '97 or something close to it. And is experiencing a resurgence. In terms of terrorist incidents the IRA was very very active in the past 50 years and contributed to several major terrorist events against the UK. It's not a stretch to say they contributed to over 10% of the terrorist incidents.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Islam is not at war. That idea is ridiculous.

    If a lady says that Jesus told her to drown her five kids in the bathtub do you blame all of Christianity?
