    Reading wikipedia, again

    The FFs believed that the religious persecutions in the name of Christianity, were in fact NOT Christian-like.

    You only need look less than 100 years before our independence, in 1692 during the Salem Witch Trials. Hardly the Puritain's shining moment of religious freedoms. Today, Wiccans and the like are allowed to practice whatever they want, BECAUSE by the time 1776 came around, the FFs realized that such persecutions were wrong.

    By basing this country on religious freedoms, the FFs were promoting the very basic tennants of Christianity, which is preaching the Gospel, yet allowing people to do what they want religiously.

    I can post too. Video after video of people of different faiths having an opened reasonable discussion about this, but I doubt they would do any good.
    Unless you have chronic amnesia, you'll remember I posted, just a few entries back, a sentiment that these peaceful crusaders, acting despite the barbarity of their religion and in line with human nature, should be championed. They can help force down the extremists.

    Well, that is, along as the narrative doesn't follow the route of moaning about 'racism' when dealing with critics of Islam, or minimalising/ignoring an aspect of Islam itself which breeds terrorism and extremism. That's why they still have this question today.

    Next step - reform Islam in the West.

    Your ignorance and bigotry are shameful.
    Way to go with the dismissive insults, pooface. Very mature. When you argue through the points, you always seem to get to this level in the end with the Liberal-Left.

    Come back when you have more than just the odd link and less name-calling.
