    Muslim is a Religion, not a philosophical ideology. I would suggest they fall under Social Conservative for the most part.

    I would suggest they are both.

    It might be argued that the most correct answer is to say that moderates are LEAST likely to die/kill for their cause. Whatever the category, they're moderate. Once moderates are taken out of any category, you're left only with extremists. Extremists will kill/die for their particular cause - that's one way you know they're extremists. An extreme pacifist would die for his cause - a moderate pacifist might, but he might also defend himself under the right conditions. There have been killers in every other category who killed for "their" cause even though the majority of their group (moderates) might have disagreed.

    I would hope that we can all rightfully condemn the willingness to do violence when it is not necessary as a bad trait. Perhaps a political ideology that attracts violent people should re-examine itself and see what it needs to do to become more civilized.

    Next to Timothy McVey, the social cons, anti-abortion and anti-gay folk have the highest body count.

    If you count suicides by homosexuals growing up in an intolerant home, the Christian Cons may beat McVey.

    Tigger, you forgot to include KKK and neo-Nazis.

    To the bolded: oh, but they do. Greenies have been on the FBI terrorist tracking sheet for years now. Remember ELF?

    In all places, all times, none of them has a decisive lead over the others. All of them will kill if they have the resources and ability to get away with it without incurring a great deal of loss to themselves. Exceptions are moderates, because the nature of killing contradicts the essence of their philosophy, and any sects of any group who are philosophically devoted to pacifism.

    In general, human beings don't need much of a reason to kill anyone; the only reason people in the West don't is because we have been domesticated by our technology and indulgent materialist culture.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    They are essentially inseparable in most countries where Islam is the dominant religion.
