    Yes, It would. They deserve hatred.

    Why does me being a Muslim stop me from hating those who kill innocent people? They are my enemy as much as they are my Governments.

    How about Christianity from those that would bomb clinics or shoot doctors?

    How about the Catholic church from those that would torture, burn, molest...

    Your inability to see extremists as a separate twisted version of a peace-loving faith is your issue. Own it, baby.

    These things are not in the same realm of occurrances. While I think Rock is over the top, your comparisons are equally silly in modern context. As usual

    I don't really buy that. Most of what has been presented against the Imam has been misrepresented and totally misunderstood (or dilberately misinterpreted).

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Really?

    So he did denounce hammas?

    He didn't say we were to blame for 911?

    He is not a supporter of Sharia law?

    A none statementis not a statement.

    No, he did not call for Sharia law here as some claimed earlier. he said clearly our consitition already had the needed fairness.

    And no, he did not excuse 9/11 for our action, but was simply honest, as beck and other conservatives have been, in noting that we were not simply minding our own business. We weren't. There is a conflict. But he rightly states it does not justify or excuse the attacks.

    So, yes, the critism has been mostly inaccurate.

    You are completely wrong...as usual. When I worked at the ACLU in Utah we often fought on behalf of the Mormon church. Its not a matter of agreeing with the message, its a matter of respecting the rights and guarantees of our Constitution. They don't come with an asterisk.

    I don't know that what you say is the case. If it is, then they are just as wrong as the right-wing hatred mongers.

    Either the rights and freedoms guaranteed to us by our Constitution apply to all....or they are meaningless.

    Absolutely I would. Look...I disagree vehemently with Fred Phelps, but I fully support his right to express his beliefs. This is America Damnit!....at least it still was the last time I checked.....we DON'T censor ideas and beliefs simply because we don't agree with them. As I stated in an early post, the rights and freedoms guaranteed to all of us in this great country don't come with an asterisk.
