    “I’m sure your mind is an Oasis of Reason for the SAME REASON the LA Times is a arbiter of Good Journalism:
    Because THEY SAY SO!”

    I have no use for the LA Times because they are a biased paper.

    “Sounds rather like Hubris, does it not?”

    The only hubris is see here is your imagining that you know what I think.

    “Methinks you got that backwards.”

    Are you saying a Koch owned paper would have a liberal bias?

    “Who are you?”

    Someone who doesn’t let fear and ignorance color my judgement.

    ” Where did you come from?”

    Maryland originally if you must know.

    ” Your comments are completely without knowledge of the subjects.”

    My knowledge comes from reading sources with various points of view rather than relying solely on the anti-Muslim propaganda sites you seem let tell you what your opinion is.

    “How much do you get paid for being a propagandist for the mooselim world?”

    That’s just pitiful. I guess debate wasn’t your strong point in school.

    “Activist judges in America are already using Sharia Law in Muslim court cases.”

    There was one case in New Jersey where a judge cited sharia in a criminal case. His decision was overturned on appeal and he was sanctioned. The only other cases I am aware of are arbitration situations which is fine as long as the agreements reached conform to US law.

    “Dearborn, Michigan is a Muslim controlled city.”

    What do you propose, ousting legally elected city officials because they’re Muslim?

    “Universities have already installed “foot washing baths” for Muslims. Dearborn, Michigan is a Muslim controlled city. Muslims workers get time off for Ramadan and other holidays, they get time off DURING work for prayers, etc, separate food, everything. It’s already here!”

    If companies or schools want to make reasonable accommodations for people’s religious beliefs, I have no problem with that. I used to work with am Orthodox Jew. The company let him leave before sunset on Friday and he had all day Saturday off no matter what. Do you have a problem with that?

    This is nothing but a political stunt. I say go ahead and let them buy it.There is no such thing as an unbiased news source any more. Conservatives will buy anything they say and liberals will know that the paper is slanted heavily to the right.

    This sounds perfectly reasonable to me.

    If one of your children is gay, they won’t need you to teach them anything.

    Why would anyone care if Reagan would support gay marriage?

    Here’s one example of an Imam issuing a fatwah against terrorist activites. There are more if you care to Google the subject.

    If Muslims were to try to impose their brand of worship on others, liberals would fight against it. Since that is not happening, there’s nothing to speak out against.

  • May 2, 2013 at 11:29am

    That’s a steaming load of crap.

    “They fear His laws and commandments because it runs counter to the way they think everyone should be living their lives.”

    What a sad attmept to try to make yourself appear to be better than people that don’t worship from your book. I know of no athiest that tries to dictate to someone else how they should live their lives. In reality, it is Christians and Muslims who feel they should be able to force others to live by their definition of morality.

    Hannity has a knack for capitalizing on the paranoid and bigotted amongst us for ratings. It would be virtually impossible to implement sharia law to the extent that Muslim majority countries do in this country. We would have to pretty much scrap the Constitution and our entire legal system to do so. Since Muslims represent only a small minority of Americans, they couldn’t do this either legally or by force.

    “No, gay marriage is a small step toward the elimination marriage.”

    I guess when you have no rational argument against allowing gays to legally marry, all you have left is to spout some unsupportalble nonsense.

    That doesn’t mean that they will never be useful. The decision to proceed with a given course of research should be based on the available information rather than rejected out of hand based on religious dogma.

    You confuse faith with knowledge. The fact is, you have convinced yourself that the Biblical concept of Hell is real. That’s something you have taken on faith. You really don’t have any more actual knowledge of the existence of Hell as any of the rest of us.

    Not for this particular procedure perhaps.

  • April 20, 2013 at 11:37pm

    Yep Comm, I know the first thing I want to do after smoking a joint is to go out and shoot someone.

    My thoughts go out to those affeced by this event.

    Your comment is an example of what happens when people ignore education. God doesn’t cause earthquakes. Natural fotces that are easily understood by an average middle school student do.
