Then it has finally happened.
Americans have turned the corner.
Like a mad dog, they can no longer tell friend from foe.
We now enter the most dangerous period in the history of Earth.

Nef must've hit a nerve if this is the thread that drew you out

So, you do think gun-owners should apologize for the actions of their fellow gun-owners?

:-)

It looks like the old adage from WW2 "when the Germans shoot, the British duck. When the British shoot, the Germans duck. When the Americans shoot EVERYBODY ducks!" works on the internet too

The gun community doesn't rally to protest people that are criminals or mental.

Your OP is about as moronic as it gets.

Guess you will, in another thread, request the same of people that enjoy alcohol? Vehicles? Meds? Rope?

How many gun owners go around beheading, and shooting journalists for making cartoons, and writing things not so nice about them.

'A good justification' eh.

Hardly.


So, Neo - do you think the average Muslim should apologize for terrorism?

No need to, because the point that's been made here would still be the same one. Would that you weren't too defensive to see it.

Oh, come now Jamie1 - come and join the conversation

Do you think the Muslims should apologize for terrorism?

By the way Jamie1 - how many other Jamies are there?

Good hell.

SO, what is the point then?

The point was that generalising and that failing to account for individual choices, looking for guilt by association where none exists, is moronic. It was put in an analogous way so that those most in need of that message, judging by many posts on here, might see the point of the message by recognising that the usual standpoints are reversed and the accusers are placed in the position of the accused in order to enlighten them.

But then over-estimating the literacy and comprehension of ones intended audience is a bitch.

Unlucky nef.

How did this become a Muslims must apologize for terrorism thing?

I don't think so.

Being as shocked, upset and disgusted at the actions of terrorists as the rest of us is enough, and it isn't an apology as much as the normal human reaction to acts of brutality.

When they are silent and sit on their thumbs, it isn't the normal reaction folks expect.

The thread isn't calling for that. It's a response to it, as seen in too many threads.

Have they been sitting silently?

Has the world not held the average Muslim responsible for the acts of a heinous and unconscionable few?

Read the OP ketsuko - with a more philosophical eye

Edit to add - it's been stated many times - but I want to amend this post to say: a terrorist in the name of Islam does not a Muslim make

It started out that way. OP thought he was being clever and part of an anti-gun agenda, it seems. Why pick on law abiding gun owners? He could have said why don't gays come out more against pedophiles or environmentalists apologize for ELF terrorists.

Obvious agenda is obvious.

He picked an easy target Doc

:-)

You gotta admit - it was an irresistible ideological honeypot - but none of that changes the point he was trying to make

If you choose to make this as an anti-gun thread instead of seeing it for what it really is, I'd say neformore has killed 2 birds with one stone

No, you just don't recognize well played satire. Satire has existed forever, and it takes a smart thinking person to get it.

Actually, his point was pretty obvious from the beginning. Gun control was just the easy target to create the parallels he was trying to create. It's ashame that you want to make it into an anti-gun debate.

What it was is fairly obvious. The method chosen shows the underlying bias. It wasn't that clever.

I don't. Just that the object chosen was interesting and an insight into the mind making it.

Wouldn't it benefit Muslims to develop a new name for terrorists that just happen to use the same scripture that they do?
Maybe call them the "We read the Koran our way gang" or "The 6%ers".
Since they are extremists, maybe they could be called "The extremely peace-loving Religion's Emissaries"
