Campbell, the First Crusade, (also called the People's Crusade) was sparked by Christians that wanted to 'purify' land that was supposedly 'stolen' from them.
catalysed by the Turks massacring some 3,000 odd Christian pilgrims.

Instead, many, but not all, are brining with them the traditions from their home countries. With that also comes a firm belief that Islam should be the law of the land, a place where other religions are not respected and kept separate.

Is it right to fear the spread of Islam in America? I believe we need to stand strong and firm in our belief that America, regardless the faults, is a nation of secular law, where no one religion can be the supreme law of the land.
If that day comes it's not going to be a good day. I believe that we'll see sharia law in effect...and it won't be pleasant.

The Political correctness is ruining the US< the Liberals that are defending to an extreme the ARABS are the hidden communist that wants to see our US down, and because civilians here take things so personal, we will be ruin soon enough!
Australia was not founded by christers. It was inhabited by aboriginal people who were tortured and killed by christers. It was a prison for Britain.
Fecal islam matter? You sir, are one sick person.
Are they not people, too?
I suppose this is a fine example of christer morality. You can have it.
If you love Australia so much, why not move there; you seem to have problems with the US.

So what website did you come from? Stormfront, or another freeper type site?

"Oh dear?" Why? Chielgirl was absolutely right. There was a native population in residence on the continent of Australia long before the British thought it would make a good prison colony. That's not speculation or ranting...that's precisely what happened.

No worries, India and China have at least half of the world's population where Islam is pretty emasculated.

Europe's going down the pipe, anyway, who cares as long as they preserve Roman heritage sites and the Vatican

America will suffer with its identity crisis ten times more.

Africa will still need aid.

Kangaroos try to live in the same planet.

Antarctica has harmless penguins.

So, there you have it, just poor Europe

I would not fear the spread of Islam at all in the US. I do fear radicals of any sort.

Although I am an atheist, I accept that human beings need "religion" so that they can convince themselves that they will live forever in some kind of "heaven" or some such thing. Consequently, we will always be stuck with religion but from what I have seen, the moderate Muslims have have my respect.
