    Trying and succeeding are two very different things. While I admire your attempt, I don't hold out much hope for your success. That's not a reflection on your effort, but on the American people's willingness to be led around by the nose.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It seems we agree. I doubt that my push for "political responsibility," if you will, within my limited sphere of influence will make any form of major impact on America as a whole. I just try to live by these words:

    If we kill them, they win.

    We cannot allow that. They will not be detered by death. A long prison sentence will prevent them from achieving martyr status... and it will make them pay for being terrorist ****bags.

    Eternity is a cell will make them suffer. A quick death will strengthen their cause.

    They must be locked up for all eternity in a supermax facility. This will make them pay without furthering their cause.

    I favor the death penalty, if convicted.

    Thoughts?
    I disagree, for two reasons; one, the justice system is not infallible, it makes mistakes, and in the case of a miscarriage of justice, it's a hell of a lot easier to release a man from jail than it is to attempt a ressurrection.

    And secondly, their barbouros behaviour is no excuse for such behaviour by the government. If killing our fellow human beings is such an awful crime, then why do we want our government in the business of doing it?
