In Middle Eastern culture, group identity is more important than individual identity. They then assume all people embrace a group identity to the same degree as they do, project their way of seeing themselves upon Americans and hence feel justified in holding all Americans collectively responsible any individual American accountable. What we think of as blame-shifting, they see as holding "the collective" accountable.

    For a real groan, you should try using an American football instead of one of those round, checkered things you folks call the same. Ours have a hard, pointy end that can cause the sorts of groans the likes of which you may have never heard.

    That was the football to the groin I imagined. I've been the victim of all kind of offensive American cultural imperialism.

    If you do wish to return the favor, just kindly send some nice fiddle music and a bit of whisky, please.

    It's already began. Your supposedly "Kenyan", "Muslim" president has been turned. Along with these, expect your crude football to be replaced by a real sport in hurling each sunday and a broadcast of the angelus at noon and 6pm daily on all networks.

    Fair enough. I just would have thought that everybody already knew that, threw me for a loop.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Short answer; when someone has a bias as to the outcome they want, they will try to twist the facts to accomplish said outcome. When an individual's desire and the proper law don't comply, lots of people want to find a loophole in the law and it's logic(first amendment in this case) whereas one who believes in the principles of that supreme law accept that they may not get the outcome they desire, but that is not as important as upholding the supreme principles of liberty.

    No way in f'ing hell.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
