Or are you too busy giving sweet kisses to Islam's butt? Where are you at? Paris gets attacked but you're busy looking to bash Christianity. You are a full blown hypocrite.

It's people like you who have apologized to the real threat that have weakoned civilized culture and watered it down by full scale wussification. Grow a set and stand for something.

What I write is not only coherent but in most cases quite profound, it's just that a much higher level of intelligence is needed to understand.
That's why my comments are so succinct, if I were to dumb them down for the likes of you I would get RSI from all the typing.

Fortunately, the Revolution Islam nut was speaking outside and separate from the sermon inside the mosque. Muslims in the US aren't the problem they are in many other places. Perhaps much of that has to do with them only comprising 1% of our population.

Perhaps you should look into the so called "New Atheists." They will not disappoint you on the subject of Islam...

You are provingmy point. NonIslamic behavior gets a name because of its rarity. Islamic terrorism is not an isolated events and rarely gets a name or is even remembered. Islamic terrorist activity is so common most of it is not remembered at all. By the way, for future reference, comparing a holdup at a gas station to terrorist activity, as you have done in other postd, is idiocy at its greatest level. Anything else Einstein? Zip me another one or two liner so I can fully be convinced of your lack of debating skill. I noticed you haven't done a debate in all.of these years. Now that's a surprise.

What exactly are you looking for? The Pope of atheism to come in from on high and formally denounce something?

Know what I don't like? Some group, ANY group, that points to something that doesn't exist, makes rules up for the thing that doesn't exist, then claims authority on behalf of the thing that doesn't exist. My tolerance for said groups is inversely proportional to how much crap they dish out in their quest for power.

If not for Christianity the very culture that shaped civilized and modern society would not exist. Don't try to deny it. There is a reason every Westernized culture based on democratic and civilized ideals has millions upon millions of secular people who celebrate Christmas but no other religious holidays.

Apparently you don't consciously think about why our cultures do this practice. It is based on a story in some crazy religious book. Do you celbrate Hanukah or Ramadan? Didn't think so.

The practice of giving gifts at Christmas derives from the wisemen in the Bible bringing gifts to Jesus as a sacrifice and testament of kinships. You didn't realize Christmas was a religious holiday? Yeah, Christmas is composed of two parts. Mas is worship and Christ is king. Christmas means "worship of the king, meaning worship of Jesus, and you celebrate it every year. That's how influenced you are by Christianity. It shaped and defined the very peoples that fought for civilized values and constructs.

Isn't it ironic that Jesus declared the gospel would be spread across the Earth and said his words would never disappear, and the very Romans who opposed him and killed him turned his words into truth?

Will you be passing out Christmas cards and presents this year?

Luckily, neither cards nor presents are anything to do with religion.

The practice of giving gifts at Christmas derives from the wisemen in the Bible bringing gifts to Jesus as a sacrifice and testament of kinships. You didn't realize Christmas was a religious holiday? Yeah, Christmas is composed of two parts. Mas is worship and Christ is king. Christmas means "worship of the king, meaning worship of Jesus, and you celebrate it every year. That's how influenced you are by Christianity. It shaped and defined the very peoples that fought for civilized values and constructs.

Does that mean that Michaelmas and Martinmas etc,. means worship of those saints? Isn't that idolatry?
