I explained this way too many times in 50 or so Tea Party threads. You cannot judge large groups by the actions of a relative few. This has been taught to all of us as children. There is no excuse to not know it now.
Sgtrock, I don't give a ****. Flip through the OT. There are plenty of quotes that can call for some pretty terrible things if one takes them all literally and forgets the whole message of the book. The same exact thing applies to Islam. SOME Muslims do just that with the Quran. They cherry pick a few quotes and forget the main message of the Quran, don't be a dick. Some Christians do the exact same thing. Of course all you hear about are the crazy ones. They're the one's blowing themselves up!! The rest are just trying to carry out their lives like you and me. That's not news. That's why you don't see it. So go ahead Sgt. Flip through the OT. Look at every little rule and law they tell you, and then tell me that the Quran is so much worse.
