Dallas is a big place and many of the Suburbs and downtown sections have virtually no Muslims.


I think we need to look at 2 idiots from outside Dallas were the culprits and no Muslims from Dallas were involved says something about the Muslims in Dallas.

Here is what I don't understand about the Muslim religion.

Most Muslims disassociate themselves from radical Muslim terrorists.
They claim those terrorists aren't following the Koran.

Yet, when a well known terrorist........bin-laden ... is killed, they are demanding to know if the US gave him the proper Muslim burial.

If they claim the radical terrorists are not following the Muslim Koran, why should they care what kind of burial he gets?

The event was held in that particular venue because the same venue held a Pro Islamic event in January.

I will give credit where credit is due - it is commendable that no Dallas or Texas Muslims were involved in the shooting. As a Texan living not far from this area, and in a smaller city with a large Muslim population (including a large mosque and a Muslim private school), this doesn't surprise me. I wouldn't have expected our local Muslim population to get jihadist on us - in general, this population locally is well educated, respected, professional, and very well integrated into the fabric of our community.

So?

Let's pretend that an "artist" is flinging elephant dung at a painting of the BVM, or displaying a crucifix in urine,.....okay?

Good try, deflecting responsibility here; no cigar. This ain't the U.K.

Morons who set up this "show" are just doing their part to make your prediction come true; everyone else is playing their part, right on cue.

This is America, where Jesus Christ on a slice of toast is as heralded as art as a photo exhibit of young women with anorexia. You don't have to like it; just don't buy a ticket and all will be well.

AFDI paid $10K for security for the event and it was obviously money well spent.

This is not a freedom of speech issue.. ..../QUOTE]


Yeah, it is. Though people like you are slapping pejoratives on its free exercise. That amendment isn't there to protect speech that doesn't offend us, and the answer to hateful speech is more speech.

Good luck with trying to muzzle Americans. Not gonna happen ; wouldn't be prudent.
