Can you not show the picture of the Jesus Crucifix please, it offends me, it is absorbed in violence and hatred and persecution. More people die in the name of religion rather than race, please remove that picture of the church burning, Jesus is burning because of it.


The media will gladly show pictures of the cross on churches burning but will pixelate or not show cartoons of Mohammad . At least no one will be killed over that picture.

More stories like this should be in the media instead of constantly seeing stories about how Muslims hate everyone.


Agreed.

Yea, what the hell is wrong with people? This is a great story. Christians being helped. Muslims being nice. What is there not to like about it?

Well how else can TPTB paint a picture of chaos and disorder if they're not promoting racial divide, violent religious differences, and class warfare? Stories like this, or cops actually being nice and doing the right thing, and the greater majority of people actually getting along doesn't fit in to their agenda.

Yea, discord and strife does bring in the viewers... It's such a shame that people build opinions about larger groups from the small interactions they see about them from the television.

That's what people are looking for.

Thank You.

Now the arguments will be less tangential.

No doubt this may be true and accurate,

but some people will want to see more substantial proof.

Proof like the actual money sources that can be verified.



Why?


Maybe for the same reason people want sources verified for political donations.

Yes the money sources must be verified!!! After all we can't have ISIS or Iran donating money to help rebuild churches can we?


It would be a good step in the right direction if they did.


Guess you didn't know Iran offered to help after Katrina did you.

I did know.

A good step in the right direction.

And I might add I think some of the donations for the Faatimah Knight efforts may be from all faiths.

You act like I am against these things. Puzzling.

I'm fairly new to the site and perhaps it's just me, but I have a problem telling what you are for or against on most issues. Your posts usually do not make much sense.

Your posts almost come-off as if you have some sort of agenda or purpose behind them, but you don't have the ability or fortitude to just come out and say it.

Why can't you just agree that this is a great act of kindness that is good for all people involved, and leave it at that? Does it really matter where the money came from? It's not as if the money is going to harm people.

Assuming the "money" gets there, I agree.



btw, it's closer to $50,000 now.

And I believe all faiths are participating.

Why would you suspect that it wouldn't get there?

If people of all faiths are raising money to rebuild churches, etc, why have such a negative attitude towards it? Is there a hidden conspiracy here that we don't know about that you do?

You'll find some understanding of certain tactics used on this site by consulting one of Glenn Beck's favorite authors:

Saul Alinsky, 12 Rules for Radicals

You may be seeing the following used in this particular discussion:

RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions

RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.

RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist

Best of Beck, 12 Rules for Radicals

Now, ask yourself ... do any of those sound familiar?

Yes, I know very well about Alinsky and that the member I replied to has a habit of employing such tactics.

It is infuriating, especially when they are one of the many members that like to pull out that "Alinsky card".

Then you easily understand what I was doing in my post. Having read some of your posts, I was certain you were fully aware.

Sometimes we have to fight fire with blow torches.

Awesome that one often demonized group helped out another often demonized group! Don't worry though, the group that does the demonizing will still feel morally superior
