Uh, not really, nor should one strive for generalizing, as it simply reduces any discussion into mush.

Any conversation? Or just some?


Just yours.

You think this is simple - and that with a generalization you can backhand both Muslims and the left

Do you believe all Muslims are bad people?

No one (generally speaking) is willing to concede anything, and truth lies supremely on their side, regardless of what facts might say.

Just think of the kinds of conversations we might have had...

The OP is a waste of space - it was only ever intended to fan the flames

There are people here that you might ordinarily believe were thinkers and up for the discussion - but rhetoric and propaganda are all we'll get looks like

Shouldn’t liberalism hate Islam at least as much as it hates Christianity?


One would think but what it boils down to is this.

Muslims voted for Democrats.

Christians vote for Republicans.

This is why liberals defend Islam.

No person of sound mind, liberal or conservative, support 'Radical Islam'.


Then why have we been arming 'terrorists' for over 40 years.

Ya know that saying 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend' crap.

The irony is I believe that is an arabic saying.

Republicans defend Christianity because a lot of Christian churches preach politics from the pulpit. If you don't vote Republican and your fellow congregation members find out -- you could be "iced out" of social circles. In small communities, the church in town is the social nexus of everything. If you don't go along with the herd, you're on the outside without any friends.

I've seen it before...there's a lot of pressure to conform...

I could easily ask why "conservatives" continually invent red herrings as reasons for spreading hate.


Oh do you mean like 'war on women', 'mass shootings', 'Gun violence', and 'climate change',' The 1%', and the list goes on.

Oh but conservatives didn't create those red herrings LIBERALS did.

I would have to ask one. If they exist. Haven't seen one.

Although one could chalk this thread up to the Isamphobes arguing with the Christianphobes.

The same thing can be said for any prominent social group. In a lot of smaller, rural American communities though the Christian churches ARE the social nexus of the community.

In larger cities you'll find more options, and the same kind of deal applies there too. Depending on your Mosque for example, if you disagree with the politics, you'll find yourself on the outside as well.

I think part of it too is that the GOP/Republican party has a lot of "keeping and holding onto tradition" in its platform and message. I think that "tradition" value appeals to people who are Christians, as churches have a lot of traditions and rituals.

Maybe that's to simplistic? I don't know...I do know Jesus himself acted a lot more like a liberal than a hardcore Rush Limbaugh type.

You also just explained why all religions are political, why it's very difficult to disagree with your faith - and how a kind of cult of religious personality can in the end assume complete control

Since the OP has to assume that the left is infatuated with Islam in order to make sense - I guess that means that Christianity is by default objective

You know what Mystik? 2016 is going to be an interesting year

Yeah, people don't like to think for themselves. It's easier to just default to "tell me what I'm supposed to believe".

Everyone from every side/angle/walk of life does it. It's not exclusive to anyone.

And when we just switch to our lazy default mode of being fed talking points by our "team" of choice? We get nowhere. . .

Why do you need to put words in my mouth? You do read the Blaze - evidently. Am I wrong? You do support the OP - and you do support Trump -his philosophy (if we can call it that) at least


Never heard of it.

I do not support trump, which I explicitly stated to you, and which you explicitly ignored. I defend Trump from your hate, your tendency to label people as evil for what they say; that's it.

This whole thread is about you, the leftist who has crawled into bed with Islam, who holds standards for Christians that you will not hold for Muslims.

No.

Which religion did the people who attacked Paris with machine guns and explosives practice?

Which religion does Boko Haram practice?

Which religion does ISIS practice?

What else besides their religion connects these people?

It's arguably not even the same religion anymore when radicals have twisted it, allowing unspeakable acts of violence in its name.

Islam is everything liberals accuse the Christian conservatives of being.

There is no 'separation' of church, and state'.

ALL things being EQUAL.

Liberals should be equally contemptuous of them.

But they aren't.

Is gun violence fake?

Mass shootings of 4 or more don't happen?

Women are equal to men in society?

Global warming is more or less a fact, so that really doesn't even warrant a response.
