I'm not confused. I'm just wondering as to why the influx of articles involving Islamic fundamentalists.

Because they use their religion as a weapon instead of preaching peace.

Good point. However, all religions have their variations of fundamentalistic followers. Take the right wing christian KKK. They use their beliefs as a form of terror as well. Posting a couple of threads in the same day dealing with Islamic fundamentalism without approaching any other religions seems a bit tilted.

[/QUOTE]

Islam in its regular form is tolerant and peaceful. It is ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALISM that is the extreemist sect of Islam that hates the western world.

Although i dont agree that the boy's punishment was right, it was part of his culture and there is little we can do to change it unless all western countries (most likely just the us) turn on anyone with a different religion than themselves.

People should learn about other cultures before making themselves sound like rednecks and stating that thier religion is the one true form. Youre a bigot and an idiot if you believe that only one form of religion can be the best.

Why it is their relegion, and i fully understand and respect that, it still sounds extremely harsh.  I think the punishment went way overboard, but what can you do.

Yep - to us that seems extremely harsh.  To the French, the death penalty is so harsh that they refuse to extradite murderers to the US.  It's all a matter of perspective...

^It means that Republicans are Jesus freaks.

The French don't like the death penalty? That's weird. I'm not saying it's not true but I thought their gov was set up against criminals unlike ours where the governemnt favors the criminals.

I need to find smaller pictures for my profile.

Our government does not favor criminals simply because it is supposed to be "innocent until proven guilty." Prosecutors have the most discretion out of the courtroom workgroup and most of the time the odds are stacked against defendants.

Posting a couple of threads in the same day dealing with Islamic fundamentalism without approaching any other religions seems a bit tilted.

 

First off, this thread isn't about KKK and Christians, there are plenty posts criticizing Christians here and the KKK too. If you are looking for one then use the search.

  Now, every other group gets a lot of abuse on this forum, but forum forbid if Islam gets some deserved criticism. I have to ask, are you suggesting that Islam should never be criticized?

  Now to answer your other question, when the KKK does something nasty the people who do it get criticized for it and rightly so.   I never see the proverbial hand in the air, saying, “Islamic extremists do it too.”  

As you are post here, ask yourself, why you are doing this self imposed political correctness silliness.

lutherans better, because you dont have to do anything at all!

You do know that Lutheran is just a form of Christianity, right? 
I go to a Presbiterian church, but I don't associate myself with any
form of Christianity.  I believe in God and worship him however I
want and however I feel fit.  Unlike some people, I don't go
around killing infadels to prove that I love my Lord because that
breaks a Commandment.  I pray whenever I want about anything I
want.  The thing about Christianity is that people need to be
smart to be part of it.  That's why I'm surprised that I'm in
it...  I'm probably one of the dumbest forumers...


...nice speach, but Lutheran is actully a spinoff of roman catholic...


Um, in case you forgot, Catholics and Christians BOTH believe in the same god. . .



yes...and lutheran is actually a form of protestant...not
catholicism...the religion formed by Martin Luther's
movements....remember...99 thesis...nice try to be a jerk there though
munky



No, not exactly, lutheranism is a spinoff of catholosism, basicaly catholisism ligh, martin luther was himself catholic, he was a trained catholic but had problems with many catholic practices, protestant isnt a type of religion per se, its more a discription, it describes any form of christianity that is not catholic, because people began to protest certain practices done by the catholic church, indulgences, excomunication, so on and so forth

Ha, it's funny to see how quick you are to protect the criticism of christianity when you've posted three threads about the criticism of Islam. Islamic fundamentalists receive much harsher criticism in recent years that the KKK has gotten since the 1960's. What has been failed to be seen is the obvious bias in religions.

He edited it faster then I could quote it.

 A kid is whipped to death over religion and you think it’s funny. enough said.

  What Dune never even bothered to read in the article is this part.  

---The townspeople where the boy lived were so outraged that they stormed the cemetery when he was scheduled to be buried, and the burial had to be deferred and carried out under guard.---

  Even the Iranian town’s people are outraged at what happened to the kid, yet DUNE is still off on his personal tangent.

Or does there have to be a disclaimer at the bottom, saying other religions do it too...
