    They’re nothing but a bunch of ignorant thugs who need to oppress children in order to find someone they can feel superior to.

    Please! Read the Old Testament and see where these ideas come from? Like well, any woman who wears any article of men’s clothing must be stoned to death, just as any man who wears an item of women’s clothing!


    It get’s really tiresome the complaints, even though valid in today’s world, how “backward” Islam is supposed to be, when the same views are held by “observant” Jews, and many evangelical Christian sects. While the “death penalty exclusion” has made some progress, ostracism can be just as serious to some. Hindus of course also have “honor killings” still and that IS tragic.


    Of course, bombing folks with modern weapons, folks who’ve done NOTHING TO US, folks who are still armed mostly with obsolete weapons, in THEIR lands, as we invade them, is “sophistication”?

    Also read the New Testament – I suppose it’s reasonable to say that as people changed, God changed (regarding what He taught us), and now His people are to turn the other cheek. (That’s His PEOPLE, not a nation, which was what He established in the Old Testament.) There’s a lot more to say here, but not the space.
    Unfortunately, for a nation to win a war, as we must now, we have to understand that the enemy fighters get support and encouragement from the general population. Personally, I suspect that, unless some civilians are taken out, thereby reducing that support and encouragement for the fighters, a war will continue much longer than if not (resulting in likely more deaths). The Dem’s knew this in WW2, and that’s why we dropped the bombs. It’s not sophistication, it’s just what has to be done.

    There is a big difference between WW2 and the Global War on Terror, or whatever this week’s fashionable name is. WW2 was fought (at least from the Allies’ point of view) to stop a certifiably insane despot from continuing his imperialism and his ethnic cleansing.
    The Middle East wars were started because we wanted to punish an entire society for the sins of a very few. Human nature is such that you can’t make someone like you if you hit them with a stick. If you bomb the hell out of them, ruin what’s left of their infrastructure, and occupy their country for over a decade, all the while torturing and/or detaining their fellow countrymen for what seems like will be the rest of their lives, for some reason it doesn’t make them like us any better. If you take out the general population, a new and angrier one will take its place. This is a series of wars that cannot be won, regardless of amount of determination or firepower.
    Something else to ponder: We have seen how, for decades, women have been treated as poorly in right-wing fundamentalist Muslim cultures as farm animals. No education, no health care, can’t even be outdoors without a male escort, and that escort has to be a family member, and on and on. What did we do? Nothing.
    Then the Afghanis wanted to destroy giant ancient Buddha statues. Oh, the horror; the hue and cry. I recognize the historical value, but let’s be fair…what’s more important: humans or rocks?
    And until we can get the above points through our collective heads, I will continue to be embarrassed to be part of the human race.

    I’m sure glad we don’t have any nuts who might go into a movie theater, school, or Sikh mosque and turn them into shooting galleries. We in this culture are of course much to sophisticated to have such a thing happen. After all, we control guns, nuts, and right-wing anti-government radicals who might park a U Haul in front of a federal building and blow it up, and the pre-schoolers inside.

    Trout are you for real? You’re blaming today’s christian religion for today’s Islamic barbarism?

    Yes, the old testament or Hebrew scriptures were chock full of rules and regulations for the Nation of Israel.

    But Christians are not bound by those laws and in these times do not “stone” anyone.

    What is tiresome is hearing you continue to excuse the hateful behavior toward women by one religious group because another one once did the same thing centuries ago.

    And here I thought you were “progressive” in your ideas.

    It’s not hard to be completely outraged by the Taliban. It’s a little harder to know what to do about it.

    If two Israelite men are fighting and the wife of one tries to rescue her husband by grabbing the testicles of the other man, her hand must be cut off without pity. (Deuteronomy 25:11-12 NLT)

    That night the angel of the Lord went forth and struck down one hundred and eighty five thousand men in the Assyrian camp. Early the next morning, there they were, all the corpses of the dead. (2 Kings 19:35 NAB)

    I don’t know what country you live in but I see none of that happening in the USA.

    and your history? Christians fed non Christians to the lions? I do remember Daniel – a Hebrew – being thrown into a pit of lions. Just another fable in a book full of myths according to some. I also remember Romans and their taste for Gladiator games and the fact that they fed Christians to beasts of various nomenclature. Hey I even remember in 1969 a lion named christian in Australia.

    Holy wars yes they had them. But who started the wars? Was it not the Islamic prophet Muhammad during the 5th and 6th century building his Muslim empire? But yes the catholic church took the territory back in the 9th century.

    Now name one politician – other than Obama – that has passed one law that requires any religion to go against their tenets.

    Hmmm, for how long have “good Christian conservatives” in the United States Congress fought equal pay for women? Woodrow Wilson, yes, a Democrat, and “good Christian man”, was against women’s suffrage. “Left” or “right”, it is those MEN who have the strongest faith in religion, who seem to have the least faith, or consideration for, their fellow; women.


    My “evangelical” son-in-law voiced strong “knowledge” from the bible that a man was supposed to rule over his wife. My daughter convinced him that his belief in this needed “reformation”. HIS belief comes from 21st century interpretation of the bible expressed by many, not some ancient commitment. It’s fraud.

    Please tell us where Jews and Christians are stoning anyone or putting anyone to death, whereas Muslims have honor killings if their daughters are “acting too Western,” and even stoning women who were raped, but are accused of “adultery.” Christians are being murdered every day in Muslim countries for “blasphemy” and even for simply being who they are.

    You are totally ignorant about Islam, and its history of perpetual war against the “infidels.” They have been a terrible threat to the existence of the civilized world for centuries, and only for the past few centuries have the tables turned on these savages. They do not deserve to be left to their own devices, because they are taught by their retrograde ideology that they are supposed to kill infidels and force them to submit to them as their highest service to their god.

    This is a fact, and for you to come to the defense of these savages (because YOUR GODOBAMA—tells you that you are supposed to be respectful of the most savage mob of cretins who crawl upon the Earth) shows that you are not interested in civilization, but rather that you will choose your friends based upon who are their common enemies. Your hatred for people who live in your own town drive you into the arms of those who would just as soon slit your throat as care who you vote for.
