    1 Peter 2:13 Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme, 14or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good. 15For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men— 16as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God. 17Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.
    The Holy Bible, New King James Version, (Nashville, Tennessee: Thomas Nelson, Inc.) 1982.
    I haven't the slightest idea how you interpret a passage telling people to submit to the authorities as being pro-freedom.

    World wide, the death toll continues to climb-whats clear is that the presence of islam often leads to violence, in fact many of the worlds current military conflicts involve islam in a significant way. We live in an international world, where relations between nations matter, and where many value a free society.

    Kobie, thats already been clarified. You really should read before you post. You will gain what you are missing-context.

    There's nothing to clarify. You specifically omitted the word "Radical" in the third post of the thread. I have no interest in your rationalizations.

    Kobie, why do you continue to hunt for strawmen instead of substantively contributing to the discussion?

    Don't move the goalposts and I won't call you on it. It's called honest debate, US Conservative. Try it sometime.

    No goal posts have been moved. I swear you only know 3 or 4 "defenses" and use them in order.

    Well, you resort to the same 3 or 4 logical fallacies. Not hard to pick them out.
