Again, what the ****, are you people not actually READING my posts?
Where once, ONCE did I ask "were they muslims"?
The FACT they're muslims means jack **** to my argument. You don't counter my argument by going "See, someoen else is christian therefore its the same standard".
How about actually using something that is comparable to what i said.
As above.True or false - A large number of coalition forces pray to a christian god regularly.
As above.True or false - Some of the soldiers see themselves fighting against an evil religion(Islam).
Now, if you wanted ot ask me "some of these soldiers see themselves fighting agaisnt an evil religion based on their beliefs in their religions proclomation as the one true religion and find it their holy duty to fight them" THEN you may have a point.
No, once again like the previous poster, you shown you can't actually answer my questions honestly because you know the conclusion for it so you have to parade forward an idiotic post like this that in no way does what my post does and then act and masquarade as if its similar in hopes that people buy the bull****.See, using your method, I just created a holy war in the Middle East.
Here Redress, I'll give you the opening.
Show me SPECIFICALLY where the actions in the middle east by our troops are:
1. Justified based largely on religious doctrine or reasons
2. Performed based largely on religious doctrine or reasons
3. Done in such an extreme way due largely due to their belief in a religious doctrine or reasons.
Wonderful. That doesn't change the fact that Islam is directly and unquestionably tied to that attack.True or false - A large number of Muslims, including many/most prominent Muslims, condemned the 9/11 attack.
Wonderful. That doesn't change the fact that Islam is directly and unquestionably tied to that attack.True or false - the guy proposing the mosque/community center is not in any way implicated in 9/11.
Wonderful that doesn't change the fact that Islam is directly and unquestionably tied to that attack.True or false - Most Muslims are not terrorist.
And because Islam is directly and unquestionably tied to that attack in an extremely negative way, for many people the notion of a building going up that close to Ground Zero whose entire purpose is to use and manipulate that location to try promote and push their religion and to chastise people for not being "tolerent" while being completely intolerant and completely unempathetic to peoples emotions that are visiting said place and the, reasonable or not, emotions that certain combinations stir, is simply offensive.
I disagree. I think its entirely reasonable and understandable to give due respect to emotions in this.The problem here is that while it is possible to oppose the mosque without being bigoted(which is a stupid claim that those opposed all are), it is still opposing something for nothing greater than a kneejerk emotional reaction aimed at the wrong target.
I think doubly so when the notion of WHY the mosque is where it is is HIGHLY dubious to me based on the circumstances and I'm talking nothing about his "extremist" nature or the funding.
