And maybe you'll realize that no other religion gets its imagery or ideals kicked around or mocked or even put "lovingly" into a jar of urine the way Christianity does. If I released Elephant Dung Mohammed, I'd be accused of hate speech.<br><br>
That is because you are not Muslim. We're once again looking at the problem of cultural appropriation. Why is it okay for the predominately Irish Notre Dame to use a caricature of a fighting white ethnic but it's not okay for the predominately white NFL Washington franchise to call themselves the "Redskins?"<br><br>I am not saying that it's okay for a Christian to attack Christians, but it's a far cry from the example you have provided. They are worlds apart.<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey
"He knew the Iraq war was a huge mistake and he is being proven right."<br><br>Proven right? Yeah, Kerry said he thought it was a huge mistake too. Do you see Kerry in office? Was he elected? Uh, no. Why? Simply because what he or Dean 'thinks' is a huge mistake is completly out of step with what the rest of America thinks. The Democratic party is out of step with America. <br><br>They are losing seats in both houses and are clueless to understand why. For the same reason you think Dean would set things a-right. Instead of seeing what most Americans want, the Dems buy into their own flawed view of the world. It doesn't work, and they refuse to see it. At this rate, the Democratic party will dwindle smaller and smaller until they'll have as much of a following as Nader.<br><br>Hundreds of thousands in America voted for what they want and what they're in favor for. They want Bush. They do not want a Democrat. Unlike the Dems who simply voted for Kerry because they didn't like Bush, Bush was elected by people who wanted him in office.<br><br>
I just don't see Islam or Allah or Mohammed or their followers getting the same treatment as Christians and Christianity, do you? I mean, how many movies can you count that have poked fun at Muslims or had Muslims portraying the bad guys? A few here and there. But nothing like those evil Jesus freaks.<br><br>That's not to say that Christians haven't done things in the past that deserve negative attention. But so have other religions, yet the treatment of them are strikingly different.<br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> "He knew the Iraq war was a huge mistake and he is being proven right."<br> <p><hr></blockquote><p> Do I need to highlight my opinions in purple? That statement is an opinion. A majority of Americans believe that Iraq was a good idea (or not depending on who is asking the questions.) That does not mean it is correct or whether it will be what is going to be written into the history books.<br><br>Just my opinion [color:purple] the Iraq War may be spoken of in the future as a big mistake in the same vein as the Vietnam War is spoken of now. </font color=purple><br><br>No, I do not see Kerry in the White House. I don't see Nixon or Johnson in the WH either. one couldn't get elected with the power of incumbency so he quit and the latter got kicked out because they kept us in a war that was wrong. We are living in history and I think you may be jumping the gun if you are certain the Iraq War will be noted as a success. We'll just have to wait until the smoke clears and the bodies are counted. Hopefully soon and not after a few more years of it.<br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> Bush was elected by people who wanted him in office. <p><hr></blockquote><p> Gee, really? I was not one of them. And since we live in a democracy we as the losers get to still talk about what we want this nation to do even if we lost. What really sucks (in the winners mind) is that we as losers still accrue all the benefits endowed to the winners. We get all the tax breaks etc. even though we lost. I'm still tabulating and I am still amazed that this is true. There out to be a law. I wanted higher taxes but all I am getting is tax breaks. I should send the money back. <br><br>Not! I'm going to spend it as fast as possible before one of those Democrats gets in the WH and wants me to send it back. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
wellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll, not to nit pick, but you clearly were not stating your remark as an opinion. <br><br>And to put a finer point on it, the Dems lost in the goal, but Americans, you and I, won. I'm not talking about this as a contest. I see the stakes far too important to be a game. Our future depended on who ended up in office. We will see better things with Bush in office. Not to say he won't screw things up. We all do, but compared to Kerry, it's the much lesser of two evils.<br><br>
<br>I say the Iraq war was a big mistake and I have to say it was my opinion? Get real.<br><br>I agree it is not a game. (Except I win both ways if it is.)<br><br> "compared to Kerry, it's the much lesser of two evils." Well shoot, let me guess, I bet that is an opinion by Suldugary! shouldn't you put barbed wire around that statement denoting opinion? <br><br><br><br><br><br>
"compared to Kerry, it's the much lesser of two evils." <br>Not opinion. Fact.<br><br>Man, since the election is over, you've lost all your fire. You're trying to sound snotty and you just end up sounding tired and in need of a nap.<br><br>Sorry. We'll debate when you're more up to it.<br><br>
