    I don't quite remember where Jesus ever asked ppl to kill in his name.
    I don't either...and nobody eluded to that in that video either.

    I heard..."There is an excitement and there is a peace to it" and I heard people wary of a violent enemy and I saw people being fanatical. But I saw ZERO violence and I heard NOTHING that indicated hurting anybody.

    "This means war" at the end sounded like a call to awaking people about politics. That phrase can take many meanings and that entire movie seems absolutely biased and I wouldn't waste another second with the obvious agenda behind it.

    ...oh yeah, I am not Christian nor religious in any way, shape or form.

    I still stand by my original comments. I am also open to any argument that might present Christianity or those involved as violent and militant as Islam. The problem is that nowhere, not even the KKK, do you see the hate and the violence that you do in Islam. Even if it is a minority, it is still an alarmingly large number of people.

    Who has something else?

    Astound me...

    and easy to put into practice.

    and if you try to practice them, you'll fail.

    Did you see the movie? That pastor(the lady with blonde hair) wants christian kids to be like Palestinian kids. At one point one of the kids says "I'm not afraid to die for Jesus, alot of christians did it and they didn't care"
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    oh god. I saw that movie in theatres (with my Wiccan ex-girlfriend, no less). It was rather sickening.

    Re: Religions of HATE!

    I think that the assumption many people bring here that Christianity is just as extreme as Islam shows they listen to the "drive by media" .

    I don't understand exactly what impact this religious group (in america) has caused. If someone here can point out kidnappings, killings, and car bombings that this "hateful religion" caused then present it right now. If they don't kidnap, kill, or car bomb then why do you care? USA is a nation of freedom of religion, I myself don't care about Muslims as residents in the US.

    And even if this group was a hateful group, so what? What are you gonna do? Kick them out of the US? Arrest them? What laws have they broken?

    Just because they are extremist within the bods of American law, does not make them any less of extremists.

    So you definition of an extremist is one that has beliefs vastly different from yours?

    Notice you have not presented me evidence of hate / violence.

    extremist - Definitions from Dictionary.com

    I notice the dictionaries cited all have somewhat different definitions of the word. Anyways, why do you care and what are you going to do about it?

    2. a supporter or advocate of extreme doctrines or practices.

    This one works. I find certain doctrines among certain Christians to extreme. So do many others.

    There is nothing in those definitions that requires violence.

    So what then? There are extremist liberals out there and they should be allowed to express their ideas. Aren't environmental wackos (such as al gore) extremist also? Since you picked that definition...

    Even if christians are a supporter or advocate of extreme doctrines so what? Are you telling me people should not be allowed to do so? What wrongdoing is being done by these group of people?

    The thread starter cited that christians get a double standard, what double standard?

    I don't see your point.

    I don't see your point. My point is that this Christian group should be allowed regardless of how radical its beliefs are as long as they are following laws. My point also being that so what? Who cares if a group is extremist, what is the big deal?
