I don't think the articles were suggesting that Obama would sign legislation to that effect. They were looking at the UN Human Rights Commission to present the policies to the world and dare the US to not agree.


Maybe I have a misguided view of the world, but there must be legislation passed by the US congress in order for any action to be taken on the US population. So the UN can say anything they want, but until I see legislation flowing through DC I will not fret too much. It is important, although, to notice the "power" the UN can have over US policy.



I suspect the worry is that when Methodists take their action to extremes it means hot sauce in the green bean casserole. And that the extremists in some other religions go quite a bit farther. For whatever reason, I don't think people in the US see Christians or Jews as a large source of potential religious violence.


Of course many in America don't see the Judeo-Christians as a threat....simple because most of us are part of that group. It is hard to criticize those that are closest among us. We have to take all of the pertinent circumstances into consideration as to why Islam is perceived as more extreme than we are In America.

America is not being occupied by a massive Islamic force, yet the Middle East has been occupied by "Christian" forces for some time and their governments have been manipulated by our governments for some time. (cia, etc)

Also, it is easy to justify our own religious beliefs and criticize theirs even though the Bible has some similarities to the Islamic book in regards to brutality and barbaric ideologies.

It is my opinion that we must begin to look at the actions of the individual, as each persons motives are born of different origins, and act accordingly. When we begin to lump action with religion...we leave ourselves open to the same criteria. Then we are all screwed by nothing more than guilt by association.

Good talking to you again Charles!

This is great news. Only neandrathals and animals solve problems with violence.

Inciting violence is the problem solving method of the political structure of the savage backward and primitive. Also most primates and pack animals.

The civilised try diplomacy first.

Practice whatever religion all you want. I or nobody else has a right to try and stop you or tell people to kill you.

I will freely berate and make fun of any religious system that I consider backward and outdated and detrimental to other neighbouring societies or indeed religions.

I will rant about, reveal instances of atrocities and cruelty by and call for the dismantling of any religious system or country I deem in violation of basic human rights or that is based on archaic, draconian, backward, cruel, oppressive or sexist. I will illustrate how cowardly and sicophanticly people tolerate this kind of arrogance out of fear.

Where's the inciting violence when I point out how bloody daft and backward Islam is? Where's the inciting violence when I call for this religion to stop being violent?

They can live in the 14th century if they want. Just dont try and assimilate other societies into your backward cultish sadistic nightmare of muslim misery oppresion and treating women like #.

It's amazing how many folk dont know that it's normal to mutilate teenage girls genitals once they hit puberty with a razor blade removing the clitoris so that the female cannot enjoy pleasure as she is considered below the man and is unholy and must be contained. That's going on right away in muslim kitchens all over the place.

even without the terrorism aspect there is plenty to hate about Muslims. It's like shooting fish in a barrel. Oh # I just incited violence, against fish. oops.

I'll call these people religious maniacs until the cows come home. Threatening violence is for idiots and cowards. We are supposed to tip toe around a volatile bunch of hotheaded religious maniacs who do things like go on a collective mission to kill cartoonists who draw pictures of their non-existand omnipotent supernatural entity. Muhammad. Go # yourselves idiots. Bloody nerve expecting respect after all the hassle your infantile extremist bull# has caused the rest of the world.

Arrogance. Assumed superiority. Ignorance, Cruelty, Oppression, Isolationist policies and backward laws. Numerous human rights violations. Yes Muslims are so benign and harmless arent they?

If they refuse to adapt to progress they will be destroyed. It's that simple. That's how nature works. Fighting evil wherever we find it is what leaders and the righteous do. Hostility against rightful criticism is the defence mechanism of the mentally ill and the narcissistic.

Live in fear if you want I'm certainly not going to worry about offending these rabid maggots trying to prise their offensive religion into our society after one of the greatest atrocities in history perpetrated by some of it's followers only quite recently.

Angus1745, have re-read what you've written? Hahaha! You sound like some radical Christian preacher from the 14th century.
The US are trying very hard to start a war with Iran right now. Wake up & smell the propaganda mate! Your media is full of it, constantly brainwashing the simple.
On ATS today there's a discussion about just this war. You should read it & see how your fellow Americans & other from around the world see things.
Don't become like those Muslims who preach hate & death through ignorance & denial.
Peace.

LOL the voice of ignorance prevails from your mouth.. Evidently you really dont know many Muslims... This is not common practice among the Muslims I know..

You are spouting racism and the sooner the bill is passed the sooner voices of ignorance such as yours are silenced.

Get some education, go and meet some Muslims and judge for yourself....

The Department of State is already being run by muslims engaged in Jihad on American soil so it is not surprising to see this sort of tripe being served up to the citizenry.

One is still free to make fun of Islam all they want without fear of the OIC or Hillary Clinton putting you in prison.

There is nothing sacred about Islam and no special protection afforded to it. It is simply another barbaric form of social control the world would be better without.

Islam is a religious/political system of social control not a race. Bashing of Islam is a perfectly acceptable expression of free speech.

Never take a muslim as an advisor. Never learn about Islam from a muslim.

You can learn all you need to know about Islam by surveying the historical landscape, taking note of any place or point in time where Islam interfaces with non-Islam. There you will find your answers and the bitter fruit of the Islamic system of social control.

Thats just it.. You just do not get it... There are many types of racism... Condeming someone on their culture is no different than condeming someone on the colour of there skin..
So what about when an American racially slurs a candian.. Is that ok becuase Canadian is not a race.. No it is not... Its just the same




"Racism" and "racial discrimination" are often used to describe discrimination on an ethnic or cultural basis, independent of their somatic (i.e. "racial") differences. According to the United Nations conventions, there is no distinction between the term racial discrimination and ethnicity discrimination

"...According to the United Nations conventions...."

Well, that is the problem right there. The UN can't change the definition of words by edict and they can't tell Americans what constitutes free speech.

The manipulation of language so that of words are defined by committees at the UN? I don't think Americans will be throttling the exercise of their free speech just because a bunch of losers at the UN tell us to.

The day I give up my freedom of speech is the day I die for expressing it...

I will bash who I want, when I want, and how I want (verbally)... Until the Constitution is torn and shredded physically, because we all know it's already done in their minds...

The MSM bashes people all day long but here the public has no right to voice their opinion? Someone kick these bums out of the White House before they turn this country into 1984...

The difference between Obama and Hitler is Hitler was a painter and killed openly...

Islamic people are not our enemy. Islam is a religion. Yes there are radicals of them, but there are radicals of every religion. So calling islamic people "our enemies" is just plainly ignorant and falsely judgemental. I do not really want to judge, but there were much much worse things christians did. in fact, calling the vatican our enemy would be most appropriate. forgetting the millions of people who were killed in the name of God, the library of the vatican holds vast amount of information of the truth, a truth which they've been trying to eradicate from the very beginning, a truth, which should be uncovered for the sake of the human race. The whole idea of christianity was to keep the peasants in place and in ignorance. i do not know what the truth is, but what i do is that the whole christianity thing is a lie, pulled over our eyes, to blind us from reality. so to fight ignorance, and to enter into a new, golden era, our first step would be collapsing religion in every way we can possibly do, and demand to uncover the secrets.

Firstly, Islam is not your enemy!
Why do people swallow this BS so eagerly, are millions of Americans really that dumb?

It's like me suggesting that Phelps is representative of all Christians.

I don't like any organized religion, but I'm intelligent enough to know that Fred Phelps and his lunatic fringe group of extremists does not represent all Christians.

No single government can limit the freedom of opinion and the expression of it on the internet. If they want to enforce things like this they need to shut down all religious discussion on the internet in its entirety.

of course it isnt common practice amongst muslims you know. Doing that to girls in any non muslim country would be a serious assault and child abuse. Do you think when it happens here anyone outside their family ever gets to know about it?

It is common practice in certain countries. Look it up. They know fine how offensive the rest of us would see it so it isnt an often publicised aspect of this religion and they happily pretend it doesent happen anymore.

Despising a twisted religion isnt racism. Nor is pointing out it's sick traditions. I despise Christians as much as Muslims as they are equally backward in their beliefs in a non existent supernatural deity. Muslims arent a race, they are a religious system that is not only hostile but constantly tries to assimilate other areas that have advanced beyond religion or are cuturally based on other religions.

Sorry if you think those of us who are sick of it and want to prevent this arrogant and offensive bullying under the banner of Islam bashing/racism etc. are out of line. I think tolerance of this nonsense is as bad as approval of it.

Religion in all forms needs to be put in the past and allowing it to spread to the detriment of modern society is absolute idiocy.

The US is not a Muslim country, nor are any countries in Europe. try going to a Muslim country and try to allow Christianity to exist in any form and see what happens to you. Islam comes to America and we are supposed to be ok with them trying to ram it down our throats and with laws being set up to allow it?

Muslims specialise in whining and playing the victims. I for one am not buying it. They dont deserve special rights the rest of us dont have just because they act so damned fragile and touchy about their stupid religion.

Offense is only caused when it's accepted. People can say what they want, it's up to me whether I am offended by it or think logically for a moment and realize that it's one persons opinion.

Where do you draw the line? Can it therefore be deemed "hate speech" if someone posts a comment about ginger people? How about if I decide that I don't like people with Blue eyes?

What if you want to discuss politics but those sites are shut down because the republicans call all the democrats communists, or the democrats label the republicans warmongers?

People have opinions you don't agree with, accept it, deal with it, move on. I can manage to disregard homophobia on the internet, and therefore religious groups should accept that we'll verbally attack them too, and move on!

You could have written the same thing about Christianity, Judaism, Catholicism...

It's not Islam dictating to me that I can't marry my partner, or that I deserve fewer rights than a Christian. It's not Islam controlling the education of kids in our schools. It's not Islam interfering with politics and forcing legislation on the public based on their own ideals. That is all down to Christianity.

I have no doubt that Islamic dominance in a western nation would do the same, but my point is that all organized religions have their flaws and their history. You cannot pick out Islam and proclaim it to be a violent religious belief system without taking note of what every other religious group has done throughout history too.

I would say that if people really want to educate themselves, they talk to moderate Muslims, Christians and whatever other religious group too, and read up on the history of ALL religious groups. Then look at what is happening now.

Don't cherry-pick the best bits to suit your argument.
