If you judge by previous behavior and the environments these communities come from.

I guess we should do the same with Christians too. Oh, and Jews. Don't forget the Catholics.

You can view all religions as a terrorist group if you judge based on the extremists and their texts.


When is this logical fallacy going to stop being used?

Previous and current.

In the US alone, every war it's fought would be classed as a Christian war (the leader is Christian, after all). But that's not "terrorism" because they're "civilised".

That doesn't make sense at all. The US isn't fighting a Christian holy war and has never.

What logical fallacy?

There are known terrorist in almost every religion.

Westboro baptism church and KKK are Christian (just an example). They're nothing more than extremist Christians. Why not paint christians with the same brush as you do Muslims?

Civilised or not, US's resources , military infrastructure and organization overshadows anything but Russia and China.

"Civility" is neither here nor there in this context.

Onky because they haven't called it that. They call it a "war on terrorism".

How many Christian countries have they "liberated" in the last, say, 30 years?

The thread is about the "threat to the west". The biggest threat is the west itself.


False.

It's about how Mainstream Global Islam (Jihad, Sharia Law, etc) is the antithesis of Western Liberal Values (secularism, liberty, girl scout cookies and stuff).

And it is framed around how the left typically goes apeshi'ite if people try to criticize the "dark side" of it... thus coddling the dark side.

Tell that to the last few pages.

Yeah, I agree, to a degree. The "dark side" of ANY religion, group or whatever is obviously bad. That's a no brainer.

What is rediculous is saying the WHOLE of X religion, group etc is bad because of the extremists.

There is no decoy, only scripture.

There are no other facts that I can post about God other than what is in the bible


I've covered in the thread how the Holy Bible has the same kind of passages, and yet they are NOT typically followed (hardly in the slightest the UGLY BRUTAL stuff). Instead, we saw America born by the civilization produced from its followers post-reformation; whereas with Islam we've seen them take the "dark side" to whole new levels (by the looks of it).

I'm confident that western powers can eliminate the existing threat within greater Islam, and in the future we'll be left with docile, placated, peace mongering post muslims, and they'll be indulging in all this sins the rest of Americans indulge in places like New York and California, for example.
Until the time comes, when Muslims are no longher their patsies. Just like every other minority who is living above poverty line.

Because they aren't enabled by Christians as a whole. Not even a little.

All the WBC does is protest funerals and says mean things. The KKK is irrelevant and powerless today.

Whereas substantial majorities of Muslims believe in death for apostasy, death for being gay, death for adultery. Women are property, rape is an acceptable social norm as is pedophilia.

Fact is none of those things are true of the majority Christian population of the US and the West in general.

When they are I will draw that line.

Did you watch the opening 2 videos in the OP? They really frame the entire point of the thread. I'm not sensing that back here.

You should go visit Texas and pretend to be gay. I'm sure that'll go peachy.

(Unless you are gay? No offence intended)

You're not getting it.

The ideology followed by the majority who aren't terrorists is the SAME ideology used by terrorists to justify attacks. Mainstream Muslims either passively or actively approve of these acts as shown in poll after poll.

There are plenty of gay people in Texas.

Openly gay too.

That framework described in those videos is exactly the framework I'm using. Only I have very little good to say about religion as a whole.
