But you mean nothing, and nobody cares about you. Lets see if these "vets" have any cojones and will stand proud in front of their real names and ranks and spew their religious hatred and bigotry like real men, not hiding behind keyboards. I doubt it.

What has flown over your head is the truth. There is a MAJOR difference between religious bigotry and calling a spade a spade. From your posts, there is a lot about Islam that you are extremely ignorant about.


:lol: I guarantee you, 101%, I know more Muslims than you do. Guarantee. You, being an uneducated bigot, believe the majority of Muslims are terrorists who dislike America, when in fact the large large majority hate violence and love America (which is why they immigrated here, genius). In fact, a higher percentage of Muslims disapprove of violence than any other religion in the US:

Your religious bigotry and hatred stinks, as does that of these nameless keyboard-hiding "vets".

I did not ask you if you knew more 'muslims' that I do. Muslims are people. Islam is a political/religious doctrine. There are a lot of muslims that are ignorant of the true nature of Islam.

I'm not going to play your stupid childish "what is this? answer this question to prove it!" You're so uneducated and bigoted, you are in favor of closing Mosques and kicking all Muslims out of the USA. But being a "conservative consitutionalist" you can't rectify that with the First Amendment which guarantees the right of anyone to freely practice whatever religion they please. Your bigoted mind is obviously confused between these two contradictions.

Comeon' vets, lets hear it: name, service, rank, and how much you want to kick Muslims out of our country like Indaswamp. I'm waiting :hi:

please find the posts where I state that I am in favor of 'closing Mosques and kicking out all muslims'. And don't paraphrase, I want you to find the exact quotes.

I can guarantee, guarantee, there is nobody on this board that went to school with, worked with and has friends who are Muslim as I. I guarantee it.

I can guarantee, guarantee, there is nobody on this board that can claim foreign born friends from all over the world as I. I guarantee it.

The more you write, the more I lose respect for you. Actually, there's none left.

BTW, this doesn't mean anything. I know more foreigners and more Muslims. This has absolutely no impact on the subject at hand.

You are a complete moron. I'm happy you are here though. You're providing hours of entertainment. Please continue to be yourself. I'm thoroughly entertained.
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.

:lol3: More than 70% of Oregon identifies as moderate or liberal. Barely 30% conservative. Yes, as always, the uneducated rural areas are more conservative, but luckily this changes as education level increases (eg only 6% of scientists identify as Republicans: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/07/1 ... 29382.html).

Religious bigotry is not a conservative or liberal cause though: allowing folks to practice their religion is a tenant of our constitution, as you know. Even extremist Christians or extremist Islamists who want to impose their religious views in our non-religious laws (First Amendment "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;")

There is zero -- zero -- chance I'd ever get in a blind with someone like you.


Coward.

I have some sad news for you there libtard. The numbers you quote came from a liberal source. Look at the statistics from the State of Oregon, not your special ed buddies blog page.

The First Amendment doesn't allow extremist religious folks to practice their religion any way they want. We don't allow polygamy, child marriages, or honor killings here.

:clapping: :clapping: :clapping: well said Scaup.

None of us are "good":

Rom 3:10
10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Rom 3:12
12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
1 Cor 6:5
5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
Ps 14:3
3 They are all gone aside, they are [all] together become filthy: [there is] none that doeth good, no, not one.
Ps 53:3
3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; [there is] none that doeth good, no, not one.

The question is not are their Muslims that do not faithfully adhere to their religion, but what do those that are faithfully adhering to it think.

https://www.catholic.org/politics/story.php?id=35128
In defending her pro-abortion views against the teachings of the Catholic Church in late December, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a professed Catholic, argued that restricting abortion amounts to a violation of women's free will and is inconsistent with her Catholic faith.

You can't use her as an example of a Catholic to defend Catholics. She is not being faithful to her religion.

There are many things that are debatable, but there are many others that are not.

While I know little about the details of the Koran, it is not an intellectual argument to say that there are some Catholics that are pro-abortion as if that is representative of the faith. You make the same logical error in saying there are plenty that ... Of course there are. There are billions of Muslims. There are going to be plenty that drink alcohol and eat pork.

BTW, this reminds me of when we were in a restaurant in San Fran of all places, and my Egyptian-born coworker asked about a dish that had bacon in it I believe and if they could make it without. The waiter said sure, and then said something like would you prefer ham instead :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: And I thought they were all multicultural experts out their.

whether or not it is followed by all muslims is a moot point once you understand Islam. In Islam, following (and attempting to be) the 'Perfect' muslim is what the religion preaches...i.e. following the actions and life of Mohammad. Ask you students if this is false.

we did this already. you had nothing.

you were technically correct, we could not find a direct quote to one of the signers of the Constitution, but I did find the John Quincy Adams quote.

i was correct. stop with the technical crap.

ottomans were tolerant of other religions, much of their downfall was due to this. i taught this in years past in world history.

swamp, nice try. you cant find muslim or islam in regards to the navy being formed. period.

my question of today's navy (in america, a christian country) is not irrelevant at all. it is very much so. prove me wrong? the connection is no less than your connection to them being muslim.


oh, and and assa. he still has not come by to see education in action. he is still complaining about it (and me) but does not have the balls to come watch a classroom in action. blah blah blah he is going to kick my arse is he sees me. sure. he know where i am every day. have i ever hid this? big talk. no action.

right...define tolerant. Are you using the Islamic definition of 'tolerant', or the american definition of tolerant?
I've proven that the Ottoman empire was indeed under islamic rule at the time, and thus, Algiers (which was a part of the Ottoman empire). The Piracy was conducted and sanctioned by the state of Algiers. The Merchant ships were subjugated and had to pay tribute (jyza tax) to pass, or they would be subjected to slavery and plundered. Do I need to spell it out any clearer?

Tolerance? My students just learned about our "tolerance" of religion in other countries when we became an imperial power. We did not play nice.

since you like wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algiers#Ottoman_rule it was part, but not part of the ottoman empire. :oops: thus the ottoman empire's weakness. it was too big.

"Formally part of the Ottoman Empire but essentially free from Ottoman control, starting in the 17th century Algiers turned to piracy and ransoming"

look up jizya, your definition is off from what i know. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jizya it was a tax to be paid to practice another religion. i could be wrong.

from your link:
The city under Ottoman control was enclosed by a wall on all sides, including along the seafront. In this wall, five gates allowed access to the city, with five roads from each gate dividing the city and meeting in front of the Ketchaoua Mosque. In 1556, a citadel was constructed at the highest point in the wall. A major road running north to south divided the city in two: The upper city (al-Gabal, or 'the mountain') which consisted of about fifty small quarters of Andalusian, Jewish, Moorish and Kabyle communities, and the lower city (al-Wata, or 'the plains') which was the administrative, military and commercial centre of the city, mostly inhabited by Turkish dignitaries and other upper-class families.[7]
