Not liking someone because of what they believe or look like is what you are calling "Racist."


   Well new002 has been called racist a lot on this forum. So how does one criticize Islam without being called racist?

-edit that should have been prejudiced.

To answer your question:  Yes.  Assuming, of course, that it were vaguely accurate (i.e., we had a large Muslim population instead of a large Christian population).

  Exactly. I think you are right. I doubt you have been called racist or predjuiced for the Jesusland picture? Correct?  Yet the hypocracy of some on this forum is that, if you were to post IslamLand on Iraq, you would be unfairly labled Racist or prejustice.

  First understand that what you are saying there is very far from my point. You are headed in the wrong direction.

  OK, I will spill the beans, "The bottom line is that criticizing Christians is politically Correct, and were as criticizing Islam is not."

  I could quote Christian stories all day long and not be called prejudice and get flack on this forum. I don't recall any out rage on your picture.
 
   However since when is it prejudice to quote the news stories of mostly Islamic people who are hiding to protect their lives? Yet I got nailed for being in an anti-Islam Rage, I was called racist, and prejudiced.

   We should be able to criticize all religion with out being called prejudiced on this forum. Currently it is ok to criticize Christianity without being called prejudiced, so there must be a way to criticize Islam with out being called prejudiced right?

 If having prayer in school is trying to take over the US, then every other religion is tyring to take over the good 'ole US of A.  Students of every religion have the right to have organized prayer in school.  And the aithiests (sp?) have the choice not to even watch them.  That could very well be changed though because a very small percentage of people find it offensive (like the prayers at High School football games).  Why do we wish to please the minorities?  If you have two ways to choose from, it is logical to either choose neutral or to go with the majority.  And BTW, the seperation of church and state was to make sure that any one religion was not deprived of their rights, not to take away the rights of the largest religion in the US.

Four of our Presidents were Unitarian.  That drives the evangelicals crazy.

Face the facts. This country is biased in favor of christianity, because that's what the majority of people are. Half the people on this forum are self proclaimed bloody athiests, but that's an infinitecimaly small portion of our nation. Our founding fathers had to base this countries ideals in something, and they chose their own religious roots to do so.


Pop quiz:

1) Who wrote the Declaration of Independence?
2) What was the religion of (answer to #1)?
3) List the differences between Deism and Christianity.
4) What was the religion of Benjamin Franklin?
5) True or false--Thomas Paine published The Age of Reason, a work which popularized Deism throughout America and Europe.

Good luck!

EDIT: And for bonus points, please state the purpose of seperation of Church and State in the United States Constitution, and then explain how the Bill of Rights was actually created to protect the minority.

And that's quite irrelevant. Th sountry was set up so everyone can have equal rights and to not be biased towards religions.

I need to find smaller pictures for my profile.

This country was founded by Christians. They were here before you and your 13 year old renegade self could claim otherwise.

This picture has a little for everybody.  Anybody who is looking to be offended can find something to be offended by.  You clearly assumed, without foundation, that I intended this to be offensive to "Jesusland" folks.  Others have assumed the opposite.

Well done.

I would be just as angry if the country actually did become "Islamoland" because then the gov't would officially be endorsing a religion. However, it is not because I am not predjudiced against the Islamic faith as someone appears to be.

I have no problem with Christianity or Christians, hell, I go to a Catholic school. But there is a fundamental problem when religion and politics in a country such as ours start to mix.

In any case, his sig is funny, it also pokes fun at states that voted Kerry, so lay off.

Also, why is it not okay when the English are clearly racist against the black soccer players, but it is okay when you are clearly predjudiced against the Islamic faith (judging from about nine of your posts)?
