    Yes I have an agenda, and that is protecting freedom of religion.

    If that is the case, the irony in your posts could be cut with a feather.

    The only way to do it is to insure that no one is targeted simply because of religion.

    You mean like you're targeting others because of their religion views?

    IMO, you haven't established much credibility in your perspective.

    Well that's your opinion, but I think a gave a rather good example of it.

    No religion or other organization is allowed to promote violence against Americans. No matter what church it is done in, if detected it will be considered a crime.

    That's right. But what I am saying is that we should not single out a single religion based on ideology. That is dangerous. Again as I said, are we going to come after Christians based on the violence that is in the Bible? That is the problem.

    Bud, Christians didn't just behead a bunch of people and burn a pilot alive. The shoe bomber, Fort Hood shooter, Charlie Hebdo killers, Spanish train bombers, Russian Theater hostage takers, Palestinian suicide bombers, UK and Canadian veteran-murderers, USS Cole bombers, and 9/11 hijackers were not Christian... they were Muslim.

    Let's keep a bit of perspective here. It's not like Christian terrorism is currently a major global problem (it barely even exists)... but Islamic terrorism is, and it is NOW, not 600 years ago.

    Well it is said that George Bush said that God told him to invade Iraq. Not only that but recent history we have had Christians doing all sorts of things in the name of religion. It's not that uncommon. Look at what happened in Waco. Look at what happened with Jim Jones. What about Mormons who believe in polygamy? Are we going to go after Christians in general because of that? Are we going to go after Mormons and tell them take polygamy out of their ideology?

    Another thing, the vast majority of Muslims are not beheading people.

    But that aside, let's look at it from this perspective. What would you do if Christians started doing those things? Would we then say we are going to ban Christians from teaching about things like a final war where non-believers will be destroyed?

    To be honest with you, if you accept that a specific religion can be targeted because of ideology, then one could make the case that religion should be banned altogether because it creates too many problems.
