That was a fanatical, not a religious one. I thought we are past this. Unlike the Allah preaching folk :-(

P.S.: I'm not a sheep so I'd rather die.

P.P.S.: The "to_" is superfluous there. <code>open YOUR_HEART "> Jesus" ..." would be enough.

    There are over 1.4 billion (with a 'B') Muslims in the world today, according to Muslim Demographics. The VAST majority of them, just like the vast majority of the 1.9 Billion Christians (according to InfoPlease), are law-abiding, peaceful, tolerant people. Unfortunately, we only hear and see the more radical elements, cause those are the vocal ones. Just cause they shout loudest doesn't mean they are the true representatives of a given group.

    We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.

    Please remember that I'm crufty and crochety. All opinions are purely mine and all code is untested, unless otherwise specified.

      This all sounds nice, yet the fact is ... the level of fanatism is much higher in the muslim world. No surprise if the priests keep inducing fire. If a christian priest ever tried to speak as bad about muslims as the muslim ones do every day about christians and jews, he'd end up in jail. My English is not fit for political discussion and I feel I can't express myself as clearly as I would like to, anyway the fact that most of the terrorism you hear of is islamic, that there is virtualy no single place where there is no turmoil anywhere where muslims mix with anyone else (be it christians, hindus, jews or others), surely does mean something.

      We do handle (or at least try to) our fanatics. You can't say the same thing about them. (The "We" in the previous sentence doesn't mean christians, since that would not include me. It means the western civilization.)

      P.S.: We even did not make fun of them as much as of anyone else. (Some guesses why :-}

        Ah yes, let's all forget terrorism before 2001. ETA, IRA, McVeigh anyone? The fact that you hear most about Islamic terrorism, is due to the insane media coverage this whole War on Terror[sic]. Israel surely ain't Islamic, yet they could be branded terrorists... oh no! They're the good guys stopping it! How stupid of me. The US is colonizing a country, oh no! Wrong again, they're the good guys, liberating it. It's only about what point of view you'd like to see.

        We do handle (or at least try to) our fanatics. You can't say the same thing about them. (The "We" in the previous sentence doesn't mean christians, since that would not include me. It means the western civilization.)

        Ah yes, the good, brave, peace loving western "civilization" ... known for colonies and extreme battlefields. Heck, two world wars started in this so called western civilization! And if Bush continues, the third will be started (albeit on from a different continent this time).
