ROFLMAO!!!!!!

I have to admit I'm pretty hard pressed to recall an incident of ABC (Assault by Christian) for insulting Christianity.

Religion of Peace . . .

americans have arguments daily, and daily they lead into violence.

bringing up islam in this one is convenient to the propagandists who feed on weak and stupid people.
Okay, if it was a white man slamming a pipe on a black man because he didn't like black folks, would you say the same as the above?

You missed the Islamic aspect of the article, I guess.

Hate crime?


How is it different than your skin color, or your sexual lifestyle?

Key words in the story: "Wausau police say the victim knew the attacker."

Try to follow along here. From the news article:

Quote:
Witnesses to the attack in the 600 block of Jefferson Street say a man got out of his vehicle, accosted the victim and claimed he had criticized his Muslim religion.

Did you get that? I'm not sure if there's a remedial version available that will help you understand so hopefully this is sufficient.

Did you read the article? The attacker claimed that the victim insulted his religion. He is the one bringing Islam into the story. Very convenient for the apologists, who feed on the weak and stupid.

I thought that according to conservatives, there's no such thing as a hate crime.

Color me confused.

Ok, you're confused. As I am by your comment. I saw no comment calling this a hate crime. I'll check again.
