This is just more silliness from liberals to take away attention from those radical Muslim barbarians in the Middle East, which they deem as "non-Islamic". It's another pathetic attempt by liberals to get people to loathe nice Christians while coming to the defense of/apologizing for Muslim terrorists.
Well - that escalated quickly.

That is NOT why people get upset about it and you know it.

Excalation was the whole point of the thread. That way those deliberately seeking out something to be offended by, could declare their offense. Those who are offended could call those doing the offending, small minded bigots. Those not offended could trash those who claim offense, and call them some derivative of candy assed pu$$ies. Same old same old and the world keeps burning, while we keep talking about stupid sh*t.

There was a recent article on this. I would never say it, but it doesn't really bother me either. But the article I read pointed out how ridiculous it is to say "I'm blessed by...I'm blessed because" or "Have a blessed day". The implication is that your god is giving you some blessing over others, as if you're better or more deserving than other people. And really, nobody truly knows if any god is actually "blessing" anyone. It's just a stupid saying... usually offered by less-educated people.
