    I think that in some cases Muslims are just getting a lot of negativity because of their actions and inactions. They haven't been vocal enough against Sharia Law, jihad, you know that they have problems with violence. I also know Christians have had such problems, but they've advanced since their beginnings. Muslims don't seem to have advanced. I really don't see why we can't tell them that they need to get rid of their negative treatment of women. They are keeping a lot of negative laws that should have been disavowed long ago. Really, even if they call it a religion, when it's wrong, it's wrong.
    It is theirs. Do you really want to put fundamentalist Christianity up against it?

    Also serious lolz at the "anti-Muslim what are you talking about?!" comment.
    Timothy McVeigh was an isolated incident that had no specific ties to any religion, political party, or legitimate organization. He was pissed off the way Clinton and Janet Reno handled the Waco/David Karesh incident.

    Take a serious look at the Muslim world. The treatment of women, the treatment of criminals (cutting off limbs), Sharia lawAmerican Thinker: Top ten reasons why sharia is bad for all societies, and come back and say that you agree with this sort of belief system.

    Sure, and then you go read up on snake handlers in the Appalachians, and we can consider ourselves equally educated on fundies.

    Stupid Fundamentalist Christians making America look bad.
    Of course, this does not mean that 1 in 5 actually think that he is a Muslim just that 1 in 5 are willing to respond that way to a survey. The survey found that most of those who said that Obama is Muslim were also people who disagreed with his politics. I suspect that the people who were against his policies were wanting to separate themselves from him in any way that they could which leads one to surmise that most of the people who said that Obama was Muslim were not themselves Muslim. Whether they were Christians or Radical Christians is not apparent from the data.

    Okay - I'm with you on this: I abhor the way women are treated in many sects of Islam (remember, not all of them treat women the same way - Turkey and Tunisia even outlaw the hijab). And I think it's perfectly okay to criticize that. Indeed, many Muslim women are trying to spread their stories in the West. But I also abhor the fact that the Catholic Church doesn't allow women to be priests, and I tell my Catholic friends that.

    That's part of free speech.

    But telling them they can't build a mosque goes beyond criticism. That is a restriction of their freedom of religion.

    Not to mention that Indonesia - the largest Muslim nation in the world has elected a female Prime Minister - something many "Christian" nations haven't done.

    This is as dumb as what you were responding to. Perhaps you yourself should crack open a few books regarding the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, and the people behind it.

    You should also look up the history of the Progressive movement and its deep roots in quite overt Christianity. To this day, the tenets of "progressive" thought are indeed those ideas at the heart of Christianity.

    Are you going to attack the Amish next? They live by many of the same customs. Women cover their heads, and many other similarities. The way muslims choose to observe their religion is none of your business or anyone else's. We are fighting terrorism, not religious expression. All these comments about their observation of customs is irrelevant.

    You're really digging aren't you? We live in a free country, go find this freedom in Muslim countries.
