    I understand the joke, but really why is it so important to offend muslims? Do you really think Christ would do the same thing, or are muslims the new "untouchables", i.e., "unsaveable"? If only some Christians were so zealous about their own faith. (and no I don't mean killing off non-Christians, nor do I believe all muslims are out to kill/convert all non-muslims)

    :BangHead: I wish Muslims & others were as offended by other Muslims saying that because they're not Muslim, or Muslim enough, they deserve to die by the hundreds, as they are by a stupid sandwich prank.

    Yeah, that's what's wrong with Islam, sandwiches. Not beheadings, not female mutilation, not intimidation on the airlines, (ie...Americans just don't get it)


    Hate crime.:BangHead:

    If we only would. But we haven't been and we won't. This is their Third Jihad and they are winning.

    You're right, ..Americans just don't get it. By the time they do, it will already be too late.

    And so it begins in our country as well. They will win the war from within because of our ignorance and lack of faith in the ONE TRUE SAVIOUR. We say God Bless American but then we throw Him out of our schools, our public buildings, our institutions and our universities, and now we recognize a false god in a public institution. I pray for mercy on what this country will become. God will not tolerate this forever.

    The sky is falling, the sky is falling.....

    25 years ago we had the exact same argument only in place of islam/muslim it was communism/communists. Guess what the world didn't end with communism.....

    It's not that some Americans don't get it. It's that some Americans realize that not every muslim is a radical fanatic who practices beheading, female mutilation, and/or airline intimindation. In fact SOME Americans have taken the time to get to know muslims within their communities and have come to the conclusion that they are people like everyone else. Radical thought indeed. Imagine if all Christians were judged by the idiots during the crusades.

    This is what you get when the government and religion get intertwined. It might not be YOUR religion. This is why neutrality toward religion is the best position for government. And before anyone starts hollering, "Christianity is the majority", well it isn't the majority in some communities, even in the good old USA.

    Umm... tacky, maybe. But, mind pointing out which part is not true?

    Also, let's not forget that they are clamoring to get a law passed (much like the one requiring bathrooms for handicapped) that would require public buildings to have their toilets facaing the "correct" direction to not offend devout Muslims.

    Which way are Muslim toilets supposed to face? My goodness, I lived in Muslim countries for quite a few years and I seem to remember they faced all different directions!

    Is what you are saying serious, Hope of Glory?

    I just did a quick Google, as I've been getting my info in bits and pieces. Here it is in one place. People have been having a heyday with it. Also, it's only relative to the most devout Muslims, as not all Muslims practice this.

    Muslim Toilet Rituals

    I was reading one press release from a UK travel bureau, and it warned Muslims to bring their own stuff for their rituals, as they are not readily available in the UK.

    Yep. You're right. We don't fight islam, we welcome islamists with open arms and our state department dumps them within our borders by the thousands. We invite them to own real estate and throw green cards to them and grant them permanent residency within our borders if they invest $100,000 in a business in our country. We throw visas at them to come to our colleges and universities to indoctrinate our kids under the guise of "Middle East Studies." We create treaties with them for oil and we use our blood and treasure to create and build islamic states...Kosovo, Iraq, and Afghanistan, to name three. We undermine the efforts of the only true democracy in the ME (Israel) and insist on giving homicide bombers land for a fake "peace." We supply murderers of innocents arms to perpetuate more crimes against innocents in exchange for false promises of "peace." We refuse to look at the true history of islam because it is politically incorrect to do so and instead, we revise history to line up to revisionism and political correctness so that in America today, many people don't even know the truth about how the Crusades started. Instead of the sky falling, it will be the heads of our families, friends, and neighbors that will be falling one day. It will be our families, friends, and neighbors who are blown up by homicide bombers in our churches, malls, sporting events, and restaurants. By then, it will be too late for America to wake up.

    As far as "moderate" muslims go---if 500,000 or 1 million islamists start blowing up people, going door to door to behead people in our cities, how many "moderate" muslims will stand up and fight against the militants rather than be beheaded or tortured? When that day comes, I suggest "moderate" muslims will be few and far between. If it is a choice between a muslim brother and guarantees of paradise in the name of allah, or an infidel, what will the choice be? History tells us and history does repeat itself.
