    aren't we all gratified that obtuse obama with his half baked remarks raised this debate to so many decibels?

    post racial, anyone?

    remember when saintly shirley sherrod was forced to the side of the freeway to quit NOW, quick, before she showed up on beck?

    are you sure this guy knows what he's doing?

    You can find no such systematic support for terrorists among Evangelicals in America. In fact, you find disdain and contempt for even asking the question.
    So what you said was wrong?

    Glad you admitted it.

    Even if not directly

    How many people have they killed?

    Yes, they are scum sucking gas bags whose demise should prompt all of us to protest their funerals as insistently as they protest the funerals of our fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines...

    But they haven't killed anybody.

    Are they dangerous? I doubt it. They are loud and obnoxious but I don't see even that band of idiots blowing up a school.

    Phelps and his group are lawsuit happy attention whores.

    Really? So how many mosques have you been to in the Middle East and seen this happening?

    By attempting to engage in a rational debate that challenges dubious conclusions about Christians themselves and the Christian faith, we are doing exactly that.

    If we were radical islamists we would be rioting , handing out death threats, and blowing stuff up for people "insulting" our faith.

    So you offer no evidence whatsoever that American Muslims have murder on their priority list.

    Good to know

    Christian extremists and Islamic extremists are exactly the same -- very vocal and very few.

    Trying to draw some distinction between the two is just foolish.

    Do you agree?
    Niether do Muslims in America.

    But you want to paint it that way, that all muslims prescribe to terrorism.

    Fact is.

    They don't.
