  • That god for Islam

    I know when MY son can't remember Bible verses, I tie his hands behind his back, stuff his mouth with rocks, and beat him until the skin falls from his back. But, hey! it's a religion of peace and whatnot...

        Is it the religion or the lack of education do you think?

But criticize any offshoot of Islam, you're a hate-monger.

                I think it's a little of both, but a lot of the latter. These offshoots of Islam, as well as the folks kah, in his usual soft-cell approach, pointed out, are usually rooted in people with no education and less money and tend to be taken advantage of by people with money.

                I've met a large number of Muslims, both foreign-born Islamics and Nation of Islam devotees, to show that a large number of its followers are, in fact, good people who basically want to follow Allah and be left the hell alone. BUT stories like this and the stories of the human rights travesties and abuses that use the umbrella of Islam are pretty overwhelming and rarely do you hear Muslim leaders condemning these behaviors. I guess the problem I have isn't with the religion of Islam so much as with the lack of accountability from its leaders concerning these rouge groups.

                  Either religion that does that shit is stupid... but see when Christians do it it's just some fucked up person, when some following Islam does it it's the religion. (very often)

                    Yaks,

                    In too many cases, Islam is the state sponsored religion. I think that's what makes it look worse in the court of public opinion.

                      And when "the state" does that shit in the name of religion they are fucked up (see Saudi Arabia, our bestest buddy by the way), but that still doesn't mean the underlying religion is bad, much as Christianity isn't the reason we went to Iraq (even though some people might think so thanks to stupid comments by Dubya)

                        Dubya duped quite a few Christians in the last election.

                        For that matter, the GOP seems to play their "Christian card" during the campaign, but play bait and switch once it's over.

                            This guy was kicked off the air in Tampa last year for talking smack about Muslims.

                            ST. PETERSBURG -- Televangelist Bill Keller may have finally met an opponent he can't out-talk.

                            The controversial late-night Christian talk show host, known for his biting criticism of religious, political and pop culture figures, is going off the air. Keller, 49, says he ran afoul of the Tampa Chapter of the Council of American Islamic Relations. The group calls Live Prayer with Bill Keller a hate-filled broadcast that damages Muslims and Islam.

                            Earlier this month, CAIR asked CBS executives to remove Keller's nightly talk show from WTOG-TV Ch. 44, a CBS-owned station that airs the CW network locally. The group was upset about a spate of recent broadcasts by Keller that disparaged Islam and the prophet Mohammad.

                            CAIR's leaders say both local and network representatives assured them that the program would no longer air on the station after Sept. 11. WTOG station manager Laura Caruso said the decision to end Keller's contract was a mutual decision and had nothing to do with complaints from individuals or groups.

                            Keller disagrees.

                            He confirmed today that his show will no longer air after Aug. 31. But he cites CAIR's complaints as the primary reason for his departure, saying he had no desire to leave the station that has broadcast his program weekdays from 1 a.m. to 2 a.m. for nearly five years.

                            "I'm saying nothing now that I haven't been saying for five years," Keller said about the content of his broadcasts. "Ultimately, it was pressure by CAIR that intimidated these people into taking me off the air. It was not mutually agreeable. They told me they were taking me off the air, period."

                              Good for the powers that be in Tampa.

                              I have more repect for those who tout the positives of their own belief system, rather than air negative rants against those with whom they differ.

                              Hell, I feel the same about political ads.
