    They would if people see killing other people as being a bad thing no matter which religion does it.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The only stupid things I heard came out of the mouths of Dems. Their speeches were prepared and they stuck to them even though they weren't making much sense by the time they gave them. What they thought was going to be going on didn't happen at all, but they stuck to their speeches. 2 of the worst were from Texas.

    If Christians were launching attack after attack and killing thousands of American citizens, I would.

    Um, are they?

    If you had watched you would know that wasn't the focus. The focus wasn't about catching terrorists, it was on learning why radicalization happens and how to prevent it.
    Funny, I came away with a much more positive view of Muslims. I was mislead into believing moderate Muslims weren't being effected by the few radicals and that they chose to ignore them. That's not true at all and they want help, though it will mostly be up to the muslim community to fix the problem.

    Yes, the ones who love America, and it's about time we started listening to them.

    They get caught. So do the muslims. It seems to be 9/11 that was the big slip up.

    I don't think I claimed Muslim was mentioned in that link. Just had an extra strawman you haven't used today or.. ?

    Well Barb, if that's truly what happened the way you say it did, then it should be a good thing.
