    Yeah, I can imagine that particular footage already.

    Show me wrong
    You know, there's a lot of hateful things in the Bible too. But as Christianity grew separate from government, it put its hostilities behind them. Surely at some point in history it would have looked as those Christianity too couldn't change. But it did. And there are tons of Muslims in America who don't preach this violence. In fact, the preach a very open and accepting tolerance. Why do we need to be against these people? America happens to be the best place on the planet for religious freedom and places for religions to grow and change. You can say why would they want to change it? Because they'll gain new experiences. Because there is no infinite and everything changes over time. Because in the right environment it becomes clear that religious people can co-exist in peace. Religion doesn't have to be a divider. I don't really give a rats ass what the Koran or Bible say, I care what the actual practitioners of the religion are saying. And there are damned well plenty of Muslims out there not preaching hate, not preaching against America, not siding with the terrorists. Enough to know that change and acceptance is possible. Maybe not in the middle east, they need to get rid of their theocracies before Islam can really grow there. But here for sure. This is America. Land of the Free!

    Now if only we can get the same acceptance for atheists. Some of y'all support those divisive bus signs which sorta lie about where the mosque is and where it's at. But how many were outraged when a group of atheists tried to put up a sign on a bus? Tons of y'all. Y'all need some consistency and a few of ya need to let go of your hate.

    I can think of no instance where the merging of religion and government has not corrupted both institutions. Church and state should be separate for the health of both church and state.

    Actually, they're great braised with a red wine reduction over some nice homemade spaetzel.

    Exactly, theocracy just makes religion a tool of the State. The State will use it to justify whatever it needs to justify at that moment. Theocracy perverts the religion. And this is what we see in the Middle East. Now you go to places which are more open and free and less hostile towards Muslims, like the US was for awhile; and you see a good growth of the religion in non-violent aspects. I have met a lot of people, and I ain't met the Muslim yet who wants to bring death to America. Most of the Muslims I've met love it here.

    I think that some people go off the deep end when talking about Islam and Muslims to such an extent as they are no longer capable of rational thought when the subject is brought up.
