    Do you agree with the U.S. general's statement?

    Lt. General William Boykin made the following statement

    NBC News broadcast videotapes of General Boykin, an evangelical Christian, giving a number of speeches while wearing his military uniform at religious functions around the country.

    In one speech, the general recalled a Muslim fighter in Somalia who said American forces would never get him because Allah would give him protection.

    ''Well, you know what I knew -- that my God was bigger than his,'' General Boykin told his audience. ''I knew that my God was a real God, and his was an idol.''

    I wish religious people would leave all the fighting to their imaginary friends. That way the violence would be imaginary.

    He's no diplomat, and let's hope he no longer has command of any troops either.
    Don't work out, work in.

    I think it unwise to depend on your God, when you are in battle.

    You're like Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown.

    Since you like polls so much, why not cut to the chase and create one that reads

    I hate religious people. Do you agree with me, yes or no.

    It would certainly make your "ready to pounce" attempts here more efficient.

    Do you object to it? Many of the best of our leaders were sustained by a faith in a loving God. While I am not a believe I do like it myself.

    No, because I was under the impression that both religions revered the same God.
    The Muslims got the word on God from their prophet Mohammed and the Christians
    got the word on God from the prophet Jesus. Both referenced the God of the "Old Books."
    Those of us who got the word on God from Julio, the homeless wino from Utah, are
    also referenced to the God of the "Old Books." As for them dastardly heathens what
    got no God, they can take up residence outside the concrete block walls around a
    Catholic heaven, because they is the onliest ones in their heaven. You did not state
    whether or not the General got paid for that speech. Probably that Full Specrtrum
    Dominance reaching into every nook and cranny and malleable minds, eh? The homeless
    wino from Utah said the God was one BillyBob and for artistic and sensitive hearts and
    minds, that got a lot better ring to it than Allah, YHWH, etc., especially since they be
    different names for the same dude or dudette, don't you think?

    Anyone who does is likely to go home in a box.
