    Talk about a hidden message. My concern is that a guy like Stripper might act on it.

    Tomorrow would have been my brother’s 70th birthday, had he not been killed at age 18 by an “incapacitated” driver. It reminds me every 9/11 of how many of our own we kill without it making real “news”. Between cars and guns, America doesn’t need any help with the stupidity of irrational death.

    It’s our accepted “standard of living”.

    Maybe that ignorance and arrogance is why “us” hates “them”, and a little of vice-versa??

    Government interfering on private property? I thought that Conservatives didn’t want to do that.

    Again, Conservatives love big government just like Liberals… it’s all about who they want to use the government against.

    Who said anything about interference. Has the government stopped anything yet. I don’t think so. If the Community Center/Mosque is funded by any group with ties to terrorist or they are connected to terrorist then the Mosque should be legally taken by the government sold and the money from the sail given to the families of the victims in 9/11.

    This is not illegal, the same thing was done to that Church the Arron Nation started several years back. I don’t see a whole lot of difference.

    Jade I have mentioned this before. Have you ever even sat down and had a diner with a conservative before. You seem to think all conservative are these unthinking, unbending, evil people. We are gasp not evil. We do think the left is mis-guided.

    dtroutma when drunk drivers kill people, there’s not an organization that actively supports that activity. There also aren’t people running around saying we should understand drunk drivers.

    Mikes got it right. That sums up my sentiments for both the Quran burning and the ground zero mosque.

    1.The Islamic Culture Center (not a Mosque but including an INTERNAL place of worship for Muslims) is at least two blocks away from Ground Zero. 2.Tall buildings block the Culture Center and Ground Zero from even being seen from each other. 3.What about the worship room for Muslims that was INSIDE the World Trade Center’s South Tower? Wnat about the Mosque that sits near Ground Zero now? 4.What about all the strip clubs and porn theaters near Ground Zero?

    Bottom line, you people who are against the ISLAMIC CULTURAL CENTER being built TWO BLOCKS AND OUT OF VIEW of Ground Zero have nothing to base your argument on but your own irrational fear and hatred.

    As Americans we have right to worship where and as we please. But not to burn books like Nazis.

    Sorry but yes we do, that dose not mean we should but yes as long as you don’t burn property that is not yours.

    Burn the New York Times. Better than firewood.

    Irrational? We must have different definitions. There have been literally thousands of incidences of Muslims, because of the teaching of Islam, attacking, killing, slaughtering innocents. If we fear that recurrence, to you that is irrational?

    What should a rational response be?

    “If the Community Center/Mosque is funded by any group with ties to terrorist or they are connected to terrorist then the Mosque should be legally taken by the government sold and the money from the sail given to the families of the victims in 9/11.”

    • So the government should take Fox News? The same guy they’re pointing out is a major shareholder of Newscorp.

    “Have you ever even sat down and had a diner with a conservative before”

    • Yes. On numerous occasions. In fact, I have defended one of my conservative, religious friends against the constant attacks of one of my Liberal Atheist friends. In fact, she’s currently one of my best friends. We don’t agree on policy a lot of the time, but you know why we can get along? She has a lesbian sister, and she supports her right to marriage and to love, and she loves her sister. And she supports me as well. If more Conservatives were like that, as I have said numerous times I would be more centrist.
    • Next question.

    “You seem to think all conservative are these unthinking, unbending, evil people”

    • I can easily swap “conservative” with “liberal” and get the exact same sentiment from the right you claim I have. I have never claimed them to be evil, nor unthinking. Both sides are unbending, and my sentence about big government obviously applies to both sides of the spectrum. Whether it’s making masturbation or being born with a different orientation illegal, or spending too much time making laws about what’s legal to say without getting in trouble, both sides want big government.
    • And as I have stated numerous times, my vitriol towards the right comes from the vitriol I GET from the right. I have NO problem with moderate Republicans like Olympia Snowe. Finances are one thing, and there’re strong merits to Conservative opinions of finance (just as there are for Liberal opinions). However, while one is free to believe what they want, I draw the line at any ”legal” (violating amendments isn’t legal) paths taken to attack and isolate and denigrate people in the LGBT community. If you support DADT and oppose marriage equality, then we have nothing to discuss. You are free to believe and say “it’s a choice.” That’s the wonder of the 1st Amendment. When one violates the 1st, 5th, and 14th Amendments to impose their beliefs upon others through the LAW, that’s another matter.

    “There have been literally thousands of incidences of Muslims, because of the teaching of Islam, attacking, killing, slaughtering innocents.”

    • Same for Christians and Catholics, even in this current day and age.

    Uh, history notes “good Christians” also burned people at the stake, for a long time. Today, we use unmanned aerial combat systems with missiles, flown by pilots 7,000 miles away in a bunker. Actually, everyone is developing them, putting “higher moral authority” into wars without getting our hands dirty, or even smudged by a match?

  15. itisme

    itisme GoComics PRO Member said, almost 4 years ago

    Yes it is irrational when you take the actions of a small percentage of one of the world’s largest religions and say “they all do this or that.”
    The MAJORITY of Muslims do not follow the Whabbi sect of Islam, which is the branch that teaches violence against nonbelievers.
