I'm not trying to say one is worse than the other, just trying to point out that there has been plenty of bloodshed spilled by each religion.

Time to bomb Syria

The results are in and the sins of man have used chemical weapons against innocents. It is time to rain blood upon the brow of Assad and to erase his government from existence. Will this cause a power struggle in which the rebels will then instill Islamic rule to go against as well after the US helps them out? Of course. The only difference is that we will not run out of tomahawk missiles regardless of the outcome.

As a wise man once said "Bomb them until they either change or cooperate with peace" That man was DHS.

Speaking of Muslims, I have a lawn mower that is too short for my tall ass. I am 6ft 9 and have been looking for either a longer handlebar for my mower or some kind of extension. So far however, the Muslim brotherhood has prevented me from achieving such a goal and I have yet to find a remedy for this issue. What do you suggest I do?

Specs needed for new lawnmower handle:
- At a 30 degree angle, the handlebar needs an 19 1/4" extension on both sides to make it ~4ft in height to provide better leverage and to fit into the existing bar slots
- 2x steel tubes with an OD of 1" and an ID of 7/8"
- Vice or vice grips to hold the tubing in place
- Drill bit big enough to drill 4 holes at the appropriate location in the tubing to fit the existing screws
- Lawnmower string extension of the same length as the tubing
- Automatic starter wire extension
- Automatic speed control wire extension

As you can see, the Islamist extremists have succeeded with their plans to prevent tall people like me from being able to easily and cost effectively extend my lawn mower to a height that will not strain my lower back.

The Templars

They arise again. I have met with them and they ate awaiting the time to be seen when there is not other option but to bless this Christian land

lol..........

I am actually joining a Templar group and going through the vetting process at the moment. This is a small sub group who is willing to go the extra mile in the case of a religious war. This scenario will probably not play out but it is good to be prepared in the case it does. Will I ever lead a Yellow force to take the holy lands back again? Probably not but I will be ready with others willing to go the extra mile to make it happen.

Would I rather have the temple mound fully controlled by God's chosen people compared to Muslim's? the answer is yes.

Just look at the middle east it's constantly the most unstable region in the world by far. Nuke the whole area and start over. Everyone but Israel should be eradicated.

Some things to not do:

1 - Act like Christianity/Islam/Judaism are equally bad actors in the world at the moment.

2 - Let indispensable rules of your society like free speech be compromised.

3 - Act like all cultures have advanced equally when it comes to the important issues like sexual equality, religious freedom... etc.

The Fatwah on Salman Rushdie, the Danish Cartoons incident, and the Charlie Hebdo incident all had one thing in common - when violent religious bullies threatened freedom of speech (which I think is the freedom that begets all others), most of the blame seemed to be placed on the people engaging in free expression, rather than the zealots who wanted them killed. Even the Pope and the top Rabbi of Israel blamed Salman Rushdie for writing his novel, not the Iranian Ayatollah for being a barbarian.

I feel bad for Christians because you can make endless fun of Jesus (to their credit, with no death threats), but poke fun at Islam/Mohammed and mainstream society acts like you are an evil human being.

If you knew half of the things being done by Christians and Jews around the world these days.... you'd pull #1 from that list.

The sad thing is, one loud group gets a lot of bad press because of an agenda.... meanwhile, those controlling the agenda(or rather, a sub-group of the same belief structure) are commit acts just as vile, heinous and evil.

I'm under no delusions that religious fanatics of all of the "big three" exist, and are committing acts of evil on a daily basis. We only happen to hear about one group, because to give any acknowledgement to the others invalidates the belief that those groups are all "good".

Links to news sites on current incidents supporting your first point? The MSM seems loathe to make the association between Islam and bad incidents until it's absolutely certain the claim can be supported. Surely there is less reluctance from the press for events that involve Christians and Jews?

I'm not trying to argue in absolute terms that there aren't theocratic Christians/Jews committing offenses in certain parts of the world. No matter how many centuries of enlightenment philosophy they absorb, all religions are going to have their share of literalists and people who focus on the nasty elements of their texts... however, you will need some very convincing evidence if you are trying to argue that all religions are roughly equally guilty on the whole at this point in time.

Consider this article from the Onion: http://www.theonion.com/article/no-o...is-image-29553

Shows like South Park can show Jesus gunning people down with an M16 or searching for porn in front of kids, and to my knowledge, receive no death threats (or if they do, it is 1 or 2 crazy lunatics). Anyone who has been keeping up with the news knows that if Mohammed had appeared in that comic, or even if someone just drew an Arabic man in typical mid-eastern dress doing nothing offensive at all, and labelled him as Mohammed, there would be death threats, political repercussions, and lots of so-called Liberals throwing around charges of Islamophobic racism (against the "race" of Islam). Obviously my argument is not limited to the way in which different religions respond to cartoons, but it is a great place to start. Anders Brevik is proof that not all terrorists are Muslim, but if you had a reliable way of tallying up all terroristic offenses and categorizing them by motivation, I am certain that Islam would be disproportionately guilty.

EDIT - Just to briefly touch on your mention of the news media and their bias towards a certain narrative... correct me if I'm wrong, but I feel that the dominant narrative is that of the nasty 1st world white person abusing non-European cultures. If anything, I'd argue that there is more a yearning in our part of the world for stories of white Christians or Jews mistreating visible minorities. Your president won't even call Islamic terrorism by its name.
