    Okay, I can't take it any more. There is no apostrophe in Christians or Muslims. There's just not. Stop it.

    If it's justified? Seriously. Are you kidding me??

    I see no difference between the two religious groups really, so we are screwed either way.
    Reality tends to have a liberal bias.

    Why are you changing the subject? I never said a word about Obama being a Muslim (or a Christian or an agnostic or an atheist or anything else for that matter), not once, ever.

    Changing the subject? Dude? Check the title of the thread. That's the subject. If you're having thread drift, you need to get back on track.

    Again the magic 20% margin. It seems that no matter what question you make a poll on, around 20% will constantly hold the most stupid opinions (or at least give according answers).

    What bothers me much more is the hysterics when it comes to debating problems. I think more than 50% believe Obama is a "socialist", IIRC, which is ridiculous, at least when judging his policies, and many in the media even foster this idea, instead of finally toning down hysterics and explaining what socialism actually is, and how far America is still away from it, despite all recent policies. But instead catch words like "socialism", "Hitler", "fascism" etc are thrown around.

    Also serious lolz at the "anti-Muslim what are you talking about?!" comment.
    Looks like a mostly Christian nation, with a mostly Christian law enforcement community caught Timothy McVeigh and put his ass in the gas chamber. Why couldn't the Muslims ever cough up UBL? Or, Mullah Omar? Muslim terrorists find sanctuary within the Muslim Community. Why?

    Nice try, but you were saying that in response to something very specific that I said. And you're accusing me of saying things I didn't say. So go back, read what I was referring to, and respond to that (which was something YOU said) -- or don't, if you want to be lazy about it -- but leave the bull**** accusations out of it.

    Quite a few Muslim countries have been cooperating with the US and the West against islamist terrorism. Many even have been fighting against islamism within for quite a while.

    Others are not that good at doing that, either because islamists are in power there, or because they hardly have sufficient statehood (like a working police) and rampant corruption.

    Of course there are certain Muslims who sympathize with islamist terrorists. But I think most Muslims do not. Also, you should notice that when a white, Christian right-wing terrorist committs an act of terrorism in the West, apparently his sympathies in the population are strong enough for many news reports to avoid the word "terrorist" and don't ask how prevalent his opinions are among fundamentalist Christians, but instead play it down by calling him a mere criminal. Why the double standard?
