Congrats.

Those mass shootings weren't done by a radical religious group however, they were all mostly lone wolf attacks by some mentally disturbed people. We do not have a radical religious group in the United States running around taking over cities and trying to convert everyone to their religion.

someone compared them to Westboro,

Westboro just stands there holding signs.

You can go on YouTube and find videos of ISIS militants driving around with Assult Rifles shooting random people.

The two are a pretty different in my opinion.

If one wishes to live in a predominantly Muslim country, such as some country in the Middle East, if it is more to their liking, then please, choose to go, I will help you pack.

I thought the point of living somewhere like the U.S. is that we are all entitled to voice our opinions as a part of a civilized discussion. Snarky responses like this one pretty much fail to meet that standard and display a underlying attitude of bigotry, IMHO. After all, you are essentially telling someone that, if they don't agree with you, they should just move out of your part of the world.

Yes...the old "If you like it so much somewhere, then get out!"...or "If you don't like it, get out!".

This line of reasoning essentially is used by someone who has conceded the argument and have nothing further to add as they can not counter your given point. It's also very unfortunate as the purpose of discussion is to open one's mind to other viewpoints and discuss what is valid and what isn't. There's too many posters in this thread whom are arguing just to argue and "win", despite their clear lack of knowledge of the situation or even the globe.

Thank God I don't live in Minnesota, ya know'.

When I'm Queen of the Universe I'll impound all males between the ages of 13 and 33 on one continent (they can have Australia). There they can kill one another in various exciting ways to their hearts' content. After their testosterone levels have started to subside we'll let them back in to play nicely with the rest of us.

We'll also send the older males who tell the young ones WHO to kill.

And then everyone else in the Universe can have a peaceful life.

Doesn't really matter what country, what culture, what religion - it's that silly old testosterone that causes all the problems.

(Note: I'm unlikely ever to become Queen of the Universe)
