But while you're saying "fuck fanatical muslims" you are also totally shitting on the ENTIRE Muslim people. You act like what these RADICAL Muslims are doing is what their RELIGION is telling them.
In fact more times than not, the Radicals are misinterpreting things, or blatantly twisting the words to what they want. The American press would have you believe that Islam is all about killing people and blowing yourself up.
That's not true anymore than it's true that God advocates for us to kill gay people, or non-believers.
But there are those out there that believe that God wants them to do that. And they get all the press, so it's pretty much possible that there are people in other countries with other religions that look at Christianity as some evil violent religion.
I want to say you're more intelligent than that, but I don't know you well enough to make that assumption. No disrespect intended with that comment, it's just a fact. Just as you don't know me well enough to tell whether or not I'm a nutjob or whatever.
Aside from the fact that I'm a fan of Chris Byrd and Max Kellerman. ha ha.
Have you ever read the Qur'an? I have....at least enough to know that there are not ONLY simple misinterpretations going on.....there is some straight up foul, devious shit going on in there. The Bible does as well....but not nearly to the degree of the Qur'an. There is only one way to interpret "lie in wait for your enimies". OR....it's ok to beat the fuck out of your wife with a stick.....even leaving bruises and slashes...BUT...just don't kill her.
OH....yeah.....pick it up....have a good read.
NOW....I understand your argument....MOST Muslims, look past those passages...just as Christians look past many passages in regard to Mosaic Law.
I'm not arguing that other religions don't have nuts....many see their share of David Koresh's and Jim Jones. AND...every now and again you hear about a guy killing an abortion Dr.
BUT......compare current day violence of ALL religions as opposed to the level of violence from the modern day Fanitical Muslim.....you will see the Muslim religion has a HUGE problem!
I dare you to look on a map ANYWHERE in the world.....and look at Muslim migration trends...and then see if violence does not follow. Asia, Africa, Of course the Mid East, Europe, Soviet territories....
Buddy....I'm not blind....and I HATE the news....I get my views from solid facts.
I've used this little senerio many times and I'll do it again here. I'll prove to you that you pretty well KNOW what I say is true...although, for whatever reasons....you don't like to acknowledge it.
If I told you that an American Plane had just been taken hostage and you HAD to bet your entire life savings on the religion/ethnic makeup of the hijackers.....what would you pick from the following:
C.) Muslim-Middle Eastern
Go ahead...you can say it.....nobody will be mad at you.
AND....so now I ask you......WHY would you pick that? Could it based on common knowledge gained from past expericances?
Of course....and there is nothing wrong with acknowledging that.
