When someone murders someone, we don't legislate the punishment based on their intent; we legislate based on what they did, so that sort of policy doesn't differ when someone who is willing to use violence comes from a sort religion. I fail to see how the existence of extremist groups makes Islam as a religion a problem at all.

    I was under the impression that I already did.
    A video wont do it, if videos were the standard we wouldnt need actual research, would we? Show me that both are comparing apples to apples and we can go from there. But if we are merely picking videos to make points thats shaky ground. In any case, its still a massive number.

    If my math is correct thats still something like 120 million. Meaning its a effing huge number, which still makes her case.

    And you owned the ME comment until you started dancing about the number including those elsewhere in asia, which is NOT what you said.

    Be up front, theres no need to hide, though liberals never seem to want to do that.

    I think radical Islam is great in that it provides the rest of humanity with the glaring true nature of all religion distilled at purest forum, in all its primitive horribleness.

    Yeah I do.


    I don't truly believe your average 9-5 American Christian is any less intellectually lunatic on an intelligence level than the radical Islamists crucifying people in Iraq. Both are stupid in my opinion. Having a strong secular pillar within you is the sign of intelligence. I firmly believe if the average American Christian who goes around wearing a cross was allowed to run the US we'd be in a civil war after 10 years.

    All of this suggests you might be a lefty, who is anti religion without recognizing that liberalism is its own religion.

    Ugh. Even the idea of having to tear down that post is sorta intellectually revolting but I will nonetheless.


    I'm a progressive nationalist. Considering Odin and Peter Pan have about as much legitimacy to me as the Jewish Middle East god Jesus or Allah, yes, I'm anti fantasy worship.


    Liberalism? No it isn't a religion. It's very debatable what liberalism even is. I'm extremely far from a liberal, but then I'm also extremely far from an idiot conservative, I'd likely promptly do away with both.

    So liberalism, and progressivism, as the terms are used and understood in the US are extremely far apart? If you are "extremely far" from liberalism and conservatism, where are you in the spectrum? Are you a moderate?

    On some issues I'm left. On others I'm right. At least that is how others perceive my stances. Personally I don't hold my stances as either right or left. I base my stances on the issue itself. Not on whether its a right stance or a left stance. IMO people are too fixated on "right" and "left". Particularly since what is considered "right" and "left" changes depending on the generation that is in power.

    You almost certainly have a lean in some way, and yes I mean to others. Asked another way, if you were to self-describe your political lean, would you say its precisely and fully in the middle of the political spectrum? If that answer is no, to which side would would you lean?

    Radical is just that...no matter to whom you pray or even if you pray.

    What is the major distinction in the IRA and ISIS if both believe in the same God?
