Must be why they are all for getting more women in the U.S. into wearing Bhurkas. Even out their chances of finding 'Mr. Right" :lol3:

Nope on that. This liberal believes that our government allows freedom of religion. The more you conservatives push christianity as the "real" religion the more ground you claim from the government. Eventually when the muslims outnumber the christians, you will have paved the way for them to own this land like you believe your religion should.

The christian conservatives simply don't understand the consequences of having a religious state.

Those christian conservatives with a lick of sense understand that if they force the government to operate as a secular will pay back long term benefits. Because forcing secularism will shut the door on any other religion that tries to operate as the government as well. That includes Islam.

You guys should be fighting your churches to make sure they stay out of government. But you won't...

And that's funny! :lol3:

wanapasaki wrote:I learn something new on this site everyday lol. I had a linguist that worked for me in my squad in Taji named Hussed. He was muslim and was given american citizenship. He lived in the states with us a little over 2 years and then deployed with us in 2006. Never thought, nor do I think he will ever prove to be a bad american. He helped rescue 5 of our own guys after we got held down during a recovery operation for a major and his jet... :huh: I miss that funny sob :beer:



When were you in Taji? We were there more than a few times getting rid of roadside bombs. We ended up at FOB Eagle for a while running missions before we shipped home. I spotted my last roadside bomb 2 days before we conveyed south just north of Taji. We managed to pick up the guy in overwatch on IR and had a squad snatch him. We had the displeasure of watching a Bradley catch fire and burn to the ground 2 klicks north of Taji two nights before I spotted the IED. Pretty impressive when the TOW missiles started cooking off. 25 mm shells make a nice pop as well.

I have to say that a lot of Muslims are good people. Many just want to live their lives and be left alone. Now as to a devout Muslim being a good American? Not likely to happen. Their religion and our Constitution simply don't mesh. They are either a good Muslim, or they are a good citizen and a bad Muslim. Their religion doesn't leave much other option.

I'd like to think it's not typical behavior for a muslim man, or any human being for that matter, but the constant trickle of stories like this one from pretty much all Muslim nations seems to cast a shadow on their human rights ethos... which definitely does not mesh with ours.

The more conservative the Muslim the less they care about life, and in particular about a woman's life. It is a sad commentary on the religion as a whole. There are plenty of moderate Muslims out there. The problem is that when you let the crazies take charge they turn it into a random blood bath. They always massacre the moderate Muslims or suppress them into irrelevance. Not being a very patriotic, courgeous, or one for all type of religion, the crazies get to kill whoever they want and everyone else keeps their heads down while hoping to survive. Sooner or later a dictator / king / oligarch takes over and kills enough people that everyone settles down to a low level of violence and they generally follow the rule of law. That leader of course has to kill a certain number of people every year to keep the violence suppressed which is both enlightening about the culture, and contradictory about humanity at the same time.

The Middle East is the Wild West of America, with machine guns, mortars, and about a 1,000 cultures that hate each other. Toss in the high emotional state of most Muslims and you get chaos on a national and continental scale.

If they knew the Injuns would eventually have casinos and cheap cigarettes, I'm sure they would not have said it.

Didn't they say the asked thing about lawyers?
In a free society, it is not the obligation of the citizen to prove to the government that he is a good person. It is the obligation of the government to prove to the rest of the citizenry that the citizen is a bad person, with probable cause.

You would say that, because they fart in your general direction.
