    Salman Rushdie, Theo Van Gogh, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Molly Norris. They all have one thing in common. They committed blasphemy that required or requires their death. Threats are one thing. Actions are another. No one on earth doubts that some Muslim will respond to fatwas. It's a religious duty.

    Buddhists, Jains, Sikhs, Hindus, Orthodox Christians, Jews, Animists, and Christian conservatives do not have a device analogous to the fatwa. Ayatollah Khomenei's fatwa against Salman Rushie is still in existence thirty years after the Ayatollah's passing.

    In modern times, Islam is completely unique in this regard.

    So no one but Muslims do that, right? I mean no abortion doctors where killed by christians, nor abortion clinics bombed. The Christian group in Michigan was not plotting to kill policemen then detonate bombs at the funeral. Didn't happen I guess.

    How many abortions MDs have died since 2001? One maybe?

    How many abortion facilities have been bombed since 2001? One maybe?

    The Michigan group is one compared to dozens and dozens and dozens of actions by foreign and American Muslims.

    The pace of Muslim terrorism is picking up. The way to reduce Muslim terrorism is to accommodate Muslim wishes. Wishes such as a complete American withdrawal from the Middle East, and the imposition of a new chastity on American culture in order to prevent offending Islam.

    Americans are too divided to deal effectively with Muslim terrorism. This being the case America must make itself into a very small target so that Muslim terrorists go after other targets, e.g., Western Europe and India. Like Obama says, America will just have to absorb some of the attacks.

    Americans aren't interested in fightin Muslim terrorists. Americans are interested in fighting each other.

    I can't really comment on what the Supreme Court will do in the future -- and I don't think anybody else will, not even the Court itself.

    I'd be interested to hear why you think that.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    You didn't bother me, but you didn't make a whole lot of sense, either.

    I'm beginning to think we should built a mosque into every new tall building.

    I see the the appeal for grants as an attempt to hoist us on our own petard.
