    No, and neither can a radical Christian.

    Re: Can a radical Muslim be a good American?

    I voted "No."

    In doing so, I assume by "radical Muslim" (I would prefer Islamic) you mean those whose beliefs lead them to closely (and knowingly) support and/or join Islamic terrorist groups.

    That said, I would extend my “No” to include ALL radical persons.

    If you are a radical, you cannot be a “good American”.

    I guess you would have to define "Radical Muslim"

    Anyone who plots the death of Americans would not be considered a good American. I would also say that anyone who roots for the failure of America is not a good American. Anyone who wants to turn this country into a theocracy I wouldn't consider a good American either.

    There are some who argue they are all radical. Of course I don't but defining what is radical about religious beliefs is pretty fuzzy buisness.

    Well not really considering these religious beliefs are founded on.. fairytale stories etc. So in one sense if you look at it that way they are all pretty radical.

    Anyone who is a radical would have a tough time being considered a good American. Now please define what is a good American? I know for a fact the founding fathers were considered terrorists and those like Jefferson condoned open rebellion.

    So I would like one of you to point out what is a "good American" because if you look at history, most would be considered "radical" in one way or antoher.

    Nice jab at Christians by the way. Wonderful use of bigotry.
