Do Christians that support hate, bigotry, and violence speak for all Christians? Nope, and it's unfair for the rest that actually follow what Jesus teaches. Muslims are the same. So killing hundreds of innocent people because of 2 radicals isn't wise.

Don't worry euronorb this is the only forum that is run by people who actually love this industry. Freedom is kinda at the core of the issue.

Josh: I don't think I am quite as outspoken on this as Phil, BUT, those "CHRISTIANS" that you speak of are not at the head of their religion. In the case of the Muslims, the radicals seem to be calling the shots. I personally love the people and even witness to some from time to time, but I cannot embrace a religion that has hate & death as it's core belief. They came to this country on their own, as did every other immigrant, and should embrace what it stands for, not what they left.The Christian religion has love at it's base. The Muslim has hate. There is a big difference.

Sorry Wayne. I'm with JetMech on this one. I tend to look for the whole story and if you look at the big picture, say the past 2000 years, I see two religions with a plethora of skeletons in the closet.

If you were any more wrong. you'd be a 3 dollar bill. But I will leave it alone as I do not think that FA is a good place to get into a debate on religion.

Well, that is one thing about this country my friend, and especially on today, we have the freedom to disagree and have our own views, yet still remain friends. 2000 years back though and yes, there are plenty of skeletons on both sides. That said, we are living in today.
