    The difference would be, if a christian committed terrorist actions, other christians would stand up and say that those jackasses were crackpots who did not represent their religion.

    They would be condemning the terrorist actions as well as the people who committed them. I don't see a lot of this comming from the worldwide muslim community.

    The AMPCC statement read in part:

    "American Muslims utterly condemn what are apparently vicious and cowardly acts of terrorism against innocent civilians. We join with all Americans in calling for the swift apprehension and punishment of the perpetrators. No political cause could ever be assisted by such immoral acts."
    You call that mild?

    I find it amazing that you, a conservative, would compare what we do in America with a third world country like Afghanistan. They do it, so it should be ok that we do the same thing as well. I think we are much better than that.

    Hotlanta was great. You have to love a sport that has an invocation before people start drinking hard and driving around a track in circles. God bless America!

    Granted, I only read the first nine pages, but I'm surprised no one mentioned this sooner...

    Dove World Outreach Centre + Burning Korans = Irony?

    What kind of outreach is this exactly?

    Actually, it has a history that dates back to the whiskey rebellion, and it is more fun up close.

    But, but, what about all those moderate Muslims?

    Yep, it will make them more of a target too.
