But it wasn't. It was committed by a Muslim who is a bit over the top in his dislike of gays.

Time to find his associates and deport them all.

In fact our priest opened the mass with prayers for the victims.

Deportation is a bad word with the dems . ... It's not the gun , it's the person !!!

No...one who excerpts from the Old Testament to spread hatred.

The exact same beliefs in the Qur'an that spurs religious violence are in the Bible. There are plenty of fundamentalist Christians who believe the same things that the fundamentalist Muslims do. It just isn't acceptable in the west to act on those beliefs. If people like the Westboro Baptist Church could get away with killing gays, they would. It's why people like Scott Lively go to Africa to spread their hatred, it's acceptable there. The only difference between radical Muslims and radical Christians is the acceptability of acting on their hatred where their beliefs are strongest.

Progressive, leftist liberalism is going to cost many Americans their lives.

Derp!

And to those who compare Christianity to Islam.....I do believe there is a significant disparity between the number of horrific murders committed in the name of one of these religions in the past 50 years or more vs the other.

Agreed.

So no, they are not comparable.

They are in that religion in general tends to be just an excuse for such behavior.

I can't agree with that completely. Certainly there are hundreds of millions of people who identify themselves as Muslims who do not believe their religion commands or even condones jihadist violence. But there are also many tens of millions who believe in Islamist supremacism, as expressed in shari'ah. That is not just a compilation of religious tenets, but a guide to how Muslims should conduct themselves in all aspects of life. Shari'ah is based directly on the Koran and the hadiths, but it as much a social and political program as a religious one. And it is supremacist, intolerant, and often violent.

Islamists who believe in imposing shari'ah wherever they go are not compatible with our Western democratic values. And their beliefs about how they should live as Muslims are rooted in the Koran. The views of these Islamists are NOT radical, but mainstream--they are widely shared by large parts of the population of many Muslim nations. That's where the mistake is often made--support for shari'ah and for jihad is NOT just confined to a fringe minority of people who are not true Muslims.

The intolerance and belief in Muslim supremacy and jihadist violence spring directly from an interpretation of official Islamic texts that many tens of millions of Muslims subscribe to. To recognize that Islam itself is at the core of the threat being presented to the West is in no way to tar all Muslims as violent or intolerant. Most are no such thing, but if they do not speak out against the violence inherent in one interpretation of their religion, they risk being seen as enablers of the people who engage in it.


This is the best summary explanation I have seen yet. Thank you for this.

Besides, deporting American citizens is somewhat difficult.
