Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
the problem with comparing the two faiths, is that the founder of Christianity specifically made the point of arguing that government and faith should be seperate, while the founder of Islam made the opposite argument.
It is possible to fully live a Christian faith in a 'Christian' country with an utterly secularist government. the same is not true of Islam - as it is antithetical to the teachings of that faith.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
Maybe one day the Muslims will follow suit, but as of now they seem to want to have a government run at least in part by the clergy. They will never be free as long as that is the case, regardless of the so called "Muslim spring". Maybe one day they will realize it.
Yet, individual Muslims seem to like it here in the US, where they can practice their religion, sans the stoning of adulterers and so on, yet not have it a part of the government.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
there are Christians on this very board that want the law in their faith and their faith only as there are Muslims out there that want the freedoms of America and are fine with their religion being just that, theirs for them not thiers to be forced on all.
so again my post stands and shows his reaction was a judgmental stereotypical one that shows clear bias.
To act like this isnt a concern for most if not all religions is niave, bias and or bigoted.
Want to see the hard core chrsitians that could not be trusted to support american law? simply visit a abortion, gay equal rights thread or one about musilims vs terroist threads.
Now is that all christians? absolutley not but they are out there and ignoring them while focusing on others is where people have the problem
Dayam, talk about being a deer caught in the headlights Herman Cain didn't even know what the Palestinian Right of Return is ... Chris Wallace had to tell him what it is! And then Cain proceeded to make up a position on the matter on the spot! Haha!!
"The right of return ... ? The right of return ... ???"
Sorry, but no.............................
His own people would tear him to shreds as an Uncle Tom. He'd either change completely, or go down in flames. Imagine what the media would do to him.
