One of my best friends is a Muslim and he is harassed quite a bit for being a Muslim.
And sometimes attacked violently.

Desert...these people are blind....as a country we may very well pay for it. Two countries are coming. It's closer than you think. Those who believe what we believe and those who believe what they believe. I can honestly say that they would allow the Muslims to walk up on our shores. I believe they would even assist in giving out the burkhas they would require American women to wear......Sad very sad. You are castigated and called a nut for having an opinion....a perfectly valid opinion based on what is going on in the world today. Remember....liberals believe in free speech ONLY if you are agreeing with them!!!!!

Oh violence doesn't count unless it's that kind of violence. Oh, ok.

Yes, degree matters, but better of a bad bunch isn't good enough for me. But if that suits you, congrats!

Why is it that I watch others who do not believe in prayer or the same prayer as me take it out of my schools, my media and my sports? Why do I have to watch as others fight with all their might to have the words "In God we trust" taken off of my dollar bills? Why do I have to watch as people in a United States Court house swear on a Koran rather then a Bible? Ya hear that Minnesota?

Hell.....this group has even succeeded in having any mention of the holocaust removed from all school books in the United Kingdom.

Freedom of speech? Where? If you think we have freedom of speech in America then I will tell you to ask Miss California, ask Cindy Sheehan, ask The Dixey Chicks, go ahead and call me a bad word right here and see what happens to you.

You are right...for now we can choose a religion of our choice here. We just can not tell anyone about it. Over there you have no choice. You either practice their religion or have your head cut off. But this incident I see as a sign of the times to come right here in the USA. Maybe even in our lifetime.
Exactly!

Don't expect to see any Christians set fire to Pakistani Embassies in the United States or Europe the way Muslims set fire to the Danish Embassies in the Arab world over the Muhammad cartoon.


Raping and murdering somebody because they are of a different religion than you is alot more sick and despicable than some cartoon strip in a newspaper.

Yet despite that, you are not going to see Christians around the world react in a barbaric way over this like Muslims did with the Muhammad cartoon situation.

Your poor, poor Muslim "martyrs" fail to meet your own definition of martyrdom, hypocrite.

You forget your own definitions so quickly.
