Are you saying Christians practice a peaceful religion? Jesus preached turn the other cheek and love your enemies, yet Christians constantly call for destruction and war in the name of stealing a weaker country's resources.


You are so right


I remember standing in my mothers kitchen on 911 and she had this shocked look on her face because of the terror attacks in NYC. She said, "it has never happened here" and I replied that Christians had been bombing clinic and murdering abortion providers for years. I don't think until then she realized that the bombing of abortion clinics was an act to terrorism.

I see NATO today as a tool used by the elite to implement their global empire building just as the US armed services have become the internetionl empire enforcers .....

what we (the USA) is doing on the world stage is just as evil as the ones they allegedly fight against ....

Tension against muslims rising.

But when will we see reports about christian airplanes bombing muslim cities? And christian companies stealing muslim oil? Everything in that region of the world is called muslim and its now a synonym of being radical in the media. But they never mention the religious part of the western world.

Holy crap. I am so sick of this topic. I'm so sick of the Christians, and the Muslims, and any other denominations of any other religions. You both have small dicks, so stop with the dick measuring contest.

You are both right. And you are both wrong.
You are both guilty. And you are both innocent.
Blame the Middle East for everything. Blame the West for everything.


This is precisely what happens when people stop reading Books, and only read 1 Book. Your brain fizzles to nothing but base primitive reactions without thought. Both sides are very much guilty of this.

"Religion of Peace.. Yeah right!!! Derrr her her!"

Yes well.. When it comes to ideologies, you have to remember that if it wasn't religion it would be something else. People ALWAYS find a justification for violence. Wars have been fought in the name of religion, the colonization of the Americas was justified by religion etc. But were they about religion? Mostly not.

When people say that "religion should be banned" because it creates violence etc, they are misinformed. Their view is too narrow. You always have to remember that when we leave "the realm of the individual" and look at groups of people they always find a justification for violence. These muslims trashing the graveyard could just as well be nationalists or Arab socialists opposing western influence in their country.

I just don't understand the uncontrolled rage... I have ZERO issues with any religion. But when someone kills another under their fanatical religious views, its wrong, and I know for a FACT, Islam says to not kill another.
(But on the other hand, it does say you can kill infidels).. hmm.. All Religions have their double standards. Even Christians -- 'Turn the other cheek', then you get 'an eye for an eye'..

For me, I wouldn't harm anyone.. I would only resort to violence if my Family was in danger, or friends... but wouldn't kill them--if I could help it... I mean, things all around this world are falling apart.. Geez, maybe the Mayans were right... if things keep going this way, we may be wiping each other out soon.


Point of fact: "An eye for an eye" came before "Turn the other cheek."

Further, Christ also said in the Sermon on the Mount:


MATTHEW 5:38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41 If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. 42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.


Before anyone gets that idiotic, and totally ignorant, wild hair, the Old Testament punishments for things like stoning for adultery and homosexuality were voided by Christ. MATTHEW 5:17 - “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them."

Christ continues this message in John 8:3-11


"3 The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst 4 they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. 5 Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?” 6 This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. 7 And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground. 9 But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. 10 Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” 11 She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.”


Christ also says, "Judge not lest ye be judged by an equal measure." Personally, when I see all of the Muslim scumbags in the world claiming to be doing the will of God when they blow up discos, strap bombs to retarded women and send them to (unwittingly) blow up a pet bazaar in Baghdad, and blow up other Muslims while they are at prayer (Muslims kill each other in the name of Islam so often it makes the number of their Christian and Jewish victims statistically insignificant in comparison), I just have to be a little judgmental. And it's an EVERYDAY THING in the Muslim world! "Religion of Peace" my ass.

Seeing as how I've never murdered anyone in cold blood I think I'm safe come Judgment Day; others, however, are going to pay. Jesus is coming my friends, only this time He isn't going to be a Lamb to be led to slaughter. No, He's pissed.

As far as the gravestones go, I don't blame the Libyans for being pissed either. They had a good thing going with Gadaffi; and the West - British and U.S. in particular - stole that from them while they bombed their homes and murdered their children. I'd be looking for a little payback too.

How do you know its just because their Muslims and not because western forces bombed their infrastructure and killed their family?

I am questioning why they are protesting against only us, it is "illegal" to desecrate the Quran which includes writing in it which is why they were burned in the first place. Prisoners were utilizing the books to communicate with each other so shouldn't they be rioting against their fellow Muslims who also desecrated it?

All this violence over a silly book, i think Christians should riot and start burning down the local quickie mart in protest of Iran killing a priest!

Call me a hate monger, racist, bigot what ever helps you sleep at night but killing people over a book is dark ages type logic. The upcoming religious war is going to be messy and it is going to be very hard to maintain our overly politically correct lets not insult anyone culture . Just think how nasty Americans are going to get when we attack Iran and their sleeper cells in the US start blowing up schools and malls and the American public starts lynching and killing any Muslim they find. You can see we will not resort to this but we will just look what happened after 9-11

What a bunch of Idiots. Do you think the Dead really care ?


Personally I feel cremation is the best way to dispose off a dead body
No need to spend money on real estate to let the lifeless body to rest. Remembering the deceased by visiting a tomb is not the only way to remember them. They always remain in our hearts and minds. Do away with the entire burial thing and free up the real estate everywhere where it is expensive to book a burial plot
This way we do not have to worry about idiotic events like this one. I have always wondered as per how long the tombstones are kept in the same place in a cemetery. Theoretically wouldn't we run out of real estate eventually lets say if it was on a small island country?
Just curious.


They cared when the video of soldiers pissing on dead bodies made the news...

Again a double standard on the part of radical Islam.

The Muslims are right. They did the right thing. And it absolutely is warranted. The Western world has oppressed them so heavily that they've fallen to such extremes as following verbatim the laws of an ancient book and their religion. Wait...something isn't right here...

When will there be a riot for desecrating graves?

I'm not seeing any evidence supporting the speculation that they did this in response to the burning of the Qurans. It merely states that it happened "right after" Obama issued an apology. I'm sure there were a trillion other things going on in the world, let alone in Libya, "right before" this event. Seems like some anti-Muslim poppycock to me.

Also, there are ignorant idiots in every society and religion. A Revolutionary War cemetery in my hometown of Savannah, GA was desecrated by Union troops in the company of Sherman back during the Civil War. Was the entire Union evil and fanatical? Well, that's depending on who you ask. Sherman was definitely off his rocker, but regardless, it just goes to support my initial statement of ignorance being everywhere.

There have been many events that I believe the Libyans, Muslim or not, are very justified in being upset about. Does that justify this particular incident? Hell no, but to speculate that the burning of the holy books is solely to blame for their aggression is ridiculously equivalent to saying one piece of straw is responsible for breaking the camel's back just because it was the last piece applied. We all know one piece of straw alone cannot break a camel's back.

How about you get out of their countries and they won't be able to kill anyone.

By looking through "archives of honor killings and bombings" you surely will find no peace. If you are truly interested in knowing whether or not they are solely aggressive lunatics, do your own research, sir. Otherwise, you are just reflecting the opinions others have communicated to you in their slanted recounts of history, and that is a shame to individuality.

Call me crazy, but I'm sure this has a lot more to do with the fact that NATO destroyed their country only a few short months ago. Having their country invaded and friends and family killed by bombs serving an ulterior motive would piss anyone off.
