    Is rioting and killing in the name of that book being respectful of it?

    Having a right does not equate to using that right. You have a choice. If someone puts a gun to your head and tells you to give them your money, you have the right to defend yourself. This may be a very poor choice and you may choose to not exercise that right. You still HAVE the right, but you may not want to accept the consequences of using it.

    I have never been to Afghanastan nor have I ever killed anyone. You are making the exact same error that you are wrongly accusing me of. Those who kill people in those countries by mistake are no more the face of the US than the Taliban are the face of Islam. It is important to remember that it works both ways.

    No, you have a right to get shot in the face. You're right of self-defense was taken from you when you were put into a position of violence that you can't defend against

    It is only a certain faction that feel this way. They are in the minority. Unfortunately "the squeaky wheel" still gets the oil. I am just an outspoken person; most people think the rev is a nut case, but they see it as a given and don't have an ax to grind. The ones who disagree with that and secretly feel he vindicates their hostility, are usually loud mouths with a YouTube account.
    Frankly the guy should never have been given media attention. But if he finagled his way to stardom on his own, the media is still complicit for not telling the truth on the air that the man was endangering lives. Americans are individuals and I believe most are moral.
    This new wave of propaganda has swept up some folks who are probably a little loose in the brain department and others who are morbidly uneducated.

    So you're saying that rights exist only when extortion is absent.

    Nice.

    Just think, there are shop keepers in Wisconsin facing the threat of union boycotts if they don't put pro-union signs in their windows for free.

    Store fronts cost money to rent, the unions are therefore stealing from those shop keepers just for the sign space, and they're threatening worse if their demands are not met. So the shop keepers have lost their right to run their business as they chose, according to you.

    NO, THEY HAVE NOT LOST THEIR RIGHTS JUST BECAUSE THUGS THREATEN THEM. In this country laws exist to protect them from thugs. And they are in no wise responsible for the actions others take when they exercise those basic freedoms.

    Whackies killed a dozen in Afganistan because of some completely irrelevant and insignificant act by a nobody in the United States?

    Too.
    Damn.
    Bad.

    The man in the US doesn't lose his rights thereby, and should not. It's up to the people overseas to control their idiots, or not, as they choose. But the blame for the crimes committed by the idiots in Afghanistan stops with the idiots in Afghanistan.

    I'm not the one demanding you respect my invisible sky-daddy

    PS and "mutual respect" doesn't mean I do exactly what you want. It means we agree to respect each others boundaries and freedom. Like the freedom to be critical of a set of myths that some assholes take way to seriously

    the same answer and question for you:

    killing the innocent people is terrorism; Taleban is not the face of Islam, period. now i would ask you to define people in USA; tell me what is your excuse ? after all you are smarter, more advabced etc than muslims; so what is your excuse to kill people in Afghanistan or ıraq by mistake and then take pictures with those killings with a smile on your soldiers, or examininf the people in us whether they are muslims or not, tell me please your excuse??
