Yeah, a man with arrows and a sword killing a bull is so virtuous.

I don't advocate the killing of dogs for fun, sport, or religion, but I also don't advocate the killing of bulls for the same reasons. Millions of Spaniards disagree with me. If they would get their own house in order, it would be easier to agree with them on the "unnecessary killing of animals" front.
That's nice, but what does that have to do with a bunch of ass-backwards extremists killing dogs because their fairytale tells them that dogs are unclean?

It makes as much sense as a bunch of ass-backward extremists killing bulls because their fairy tale tells them killing bulls is "virtuous."

Dumbass.

Read up on why Spaniards kill bulls.

I know why they kill bulls and I'm not a big fan of bullfighting, especially since the bull is often exhausted before the actually fight so there is no real sport to it. The Spanish aren't the only ones to do it either. Mexicans do it too.

So is your entire argument that since bullfighting is enjoyed by many Spaniards, that we can completely ignore what appears to be religiously motivated animal cruelty of another kind? So if a bunch of Western soldiers went around raping women in Afghanistan would that be acceptable considering the state of women's rights in Afghanistan?

So either bullfighting is your little pet peeve or you are trying to change the subject because admitting that letting a bunch of extremist religious fundamentalists in a mostly secular country in the name of tolerance is an extremely bad idea would be too much for you.

I think the major point is that Islam will not adapt nor assimilate. And it will impose its rules on any society it can.
Whether you care to admit it or not, they are waging a religious war against non-Islamic people worldwide.
Europe and Asia fought for centuries to contain Islam. It looks like America will eventually have to, as well.
