It needs to be said again I guess, this has nothing to do with background & everything to do with having a screw loose. Normal people don't do things like this, period.

It's time we all got over the nonsense that all cultures and religions are equally valid or worthy. They most certainly are not. While Christianity is a religion of peace, founded by the Prince of Peace, Islam is a religion of war and violence, founded by a man who routinely chopped the heads off his enemies, had sex with nine-year old girls, and made his wealth plundering merchant caravans.
Is this guy for real? Not much of a history buff, I suppose.

Agreed, the crusades say hi

And this is why being an atheist makes everything so much easier.

Rooting around...yes, those dots are tough to connect, good thing we got the geniuses at Fox to do it for us. We can't go around accusing every Army officer with an Arabic name who heaps praise on suicide bombers, communicates with a jihadist imam and routinely exhorts his fellow soldiers to fight the aggressor (that's US), then turns around and shoots dozens of American servicepeople while shouting "Allahu akbar!" of being a muslim who hates America. How goofy could anyone be to think so? Word is, people became suspicious of his hyper-islamism and anti-military remarks, became concerned about potential random acts of violence against innocent people--guess Hasan sure showed them how silly those concerns were!

History 2.0: Centuries ago, the Crusades happened FIRST; and THEN in justified retaliation, Muslims began marauding across Africa, Asia and Europe on a murderous rampage, subjugating country after country to islamic law at the point of a sword. Not the other way around! If your history books say otherwise, you must burn them. Must get the history backward--just keep saying it until it makes sense. (For more info read Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 and Orwell's 1984.)


So, it's not Hasan's fault this happened. He's the purely innocent victim. It's those people who razzed him, it's our anti-muslim society in general, and that evil Fox News that are to blame. *sigh* When will the govt. get with it and ban them, to protect us

No, of course not. But any religion that used the Bible as "proof" that slavery is A-OK by God had some major issues. I'm specifically referring to the Deep South leading up to and just after the Civil War.

Let's be clear.

There's a difference between orthodox teachings and heretical teachings. Heretical teachings/doctrine/dogma is not really Christianity at all, but in reality some perverse religion of its own, despite "sharing" the same name with orthodoxy.

The problem, of course, is that "outsiders" usually can't tell the difference between heresy and orthodoxy when the label is the same, and the orthodox get a bad rep. Faith believes that truth triumphs and heretical and false teachings will come to an end -- as did the teaching of "Bible-supported" slavery.

My apologies, Tim. I should have made myself clear. What you said is what I was getting at.

We dont really get taught much about the US civil war in the UK, much like I assume they dont teach about the UK civil war in the States.
