I guess you would have to define "Radical Muslim"
Anyone who plots the death of Americans would not be considered a good American. I would also say that anyone who roots for the failure of America is not a good American. Anyone who wants to turn this country into a theocracy I wouldn't consider a good American either.
Anyone who is a radical would have a tough time being considered a good American. Now please define what is a good American? I know for a fact the founding fathers were considered terrorists and those like Jefferson condoned open rebellion.
So I would like one of you to point out what is a "good American" because if you look at history, most would be considered "radical" in one way or antoher.
Nice jab at Christians by the way. Wonderful use of bigotry.
Well not really considering these religious beliefs are founded on.. fairytale stories etc. So in one sense if you look at it that way they are all pretty radical.
It's a jab at RADICAL Christians. Sorry you have a reading comprehension problem. Or are you saying all Christians are radical?
Do you have proof they are indeed a fairytale or that God does not exists? Didn't think so. Now I don't expect you to prove a negative, but I do expect you not to state opinion as fact.
Nothing radical about being religious. In fact I could say you sound "radical" by the nature of your sweeping generalizations.
Please point out where the OP mentioned Christianity? Oh thats right he did not. Had nothing to do with his post or the thread.
Please feel free to dance around the issue with more ad-homs.
My point, which was apparently obvious to everyone except you, is that RADICALISM is the problem, not being a Muslim. There are Muslims in America who are not radical in the slightest, and they are good Americans. And there are radical Christians who believe it's OK to shoot abortion doctors, protest army funerals with signs saying "God hates fags" and otherwise try to force their religion on everyone else in contradiction of the Constitution. They are not good Americans.
I will remember in the future that you have a reading and comprehension problem though, and will adjust my posts accordingly.
Now, I'm waiting for the apology for calling me a bigot.
Facts! Reason! Law! True Believers have no need of these things!
I was merely pointing out a perspective. It is debatable why people would want to organise society around a factitious deity without any empirical evidence to support it's existence, one may view that as "radical" in some way.
This question begs to be asked....
How so? I consider myself to be a "radical" fundamental Christian and my beliefs do not tell me to hate others or kill innocents. Radical Christian is not the same as radical Muslim.
It depends on how one defines radical. I will say that I believe 100% in the Bible as the word of God though.Then what is radical about your christian beliefs?
A radical muslims would typically be one who feels that all should live under the same religious rules as they do, and that generally it should be forced on them if they do not follow those rules.
A Christian who does not force his religion on others really is not radical, nor is a muslim who does not force his religion on others is not radical
I don't think so. I think you can believe in fairy tales and still be a good American.
