We get what out of this expert ??
Islam is a religion of peace ??
They do not go bonkers and kill when Mohammed is insulted !! Bengazi according to Hillary and Barack
Terroism is not a threat.
Better to have boots on the ground -rather than drones.
Occupy wall street is the group that will save and turn around America.
I agree with her that Maher is a Jerk ----but who believes she is 100% correct ????
What religion IS a religion of peace?? And why we are at it, why do we continue to follow the dictates and writings of people who lived (or didnt) 1000 years ago or 2000 years ago or 3000 years ago?? Fellow humans: ISNT IT TIME WE TRULY EVOLVE AND MOVE ON!!
Remember that 40 acre and a mule comment ?.........so long ago also!!! Evolve already !!
You going to run the Boston Marathon next year? If yes just watch or for those nuns!!
The nuns just might be the foreground where they want you to only look. But like the mighty and fearsome Oz, you look behind the curtain and the reality just might be what you never expected.
It certainly isn't the one where its members are yelling "Allah Akbar!" as they empty their gun magazines into a crowd of innocent people.
Or it could be the one where followers "cross" themselves, then drop a bomb and kill thousands.
Pathetic at best.
"If people do not welcome you, leave their town and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.” (Luke 9:5)
"And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.” (Mark 6:11)
"If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet." (Matthew 10:14)
So they shook the dust off their feet as a warning to them and went to Iconium. (Acts 13:51)
As compared to.......
Many commentators have noted the apparent irony: The Pope suggests Islam encourages violence – and Muslims riot in protest.
Many commentators have pointed out the apparent hypocrisy: Muslims are outraged by cartoons satirizing Islamic extremism while in Muslim countries Christianity and Judaism are attacked viciously and routinely.
Many commentators are missing the point: These protestors – and those who incite them -- are not asking for mutual respect and equality. They are not saying: “It's wrong to speak ill of a religion.” They are saying: “It's wrong to speak ill of our religion.” They are not standing up for a principle. They are laying down the law. They are making it as clear as they can that they will not tolerate “infidels” criticizing Muslims. They also are making it clear that infidels should expect criticism – and much worse – from Muslims.

Such a tolerant lot......
Ever consider our ginned up fear of this would be completely unnecessary if we did "leave the town and shake off the dust"?
By leaving those towns where we are not welcomed in the first place, might we just in one stoke all but end this entire terror threat?
Did you ever just sit back and ponder how powerful a weapon fear is?
Did you ever consider that both sides of this alleged conflict are fed fear and more fear and more fear upon one another about each other?
And just who are the one's doing the fear feeding in the first place?
The average Joe on the street of either society who's just out to provide for his family?
Or is it certain elevated personas within each society who turn and twist the knobs of emotion and whips of those flames of fear?
If so, what is their agenda?
Ever notice that we are told the muslim hates us for our freedoms and that we need to fight them over there so we don't have to fight them here and lose our freedoms?
If we measure preserving our freedom as to the success of the war on terror, then did the Vietnam vets win the war in Vietnam hands down?
Understanding that the term freedom is subjective as we've not clearly defined the term, do we have as much freedom today as we did on 9/10/2001'?
If no, then how can you say the war on terror is to preserve freedom?
If yes, can you share your definition of freedom?
As to the picture you posted, can you post any pictures of this type of event taking place in America?
If so, how many of these events take place over a given period of time?
How many have occurred in America since 9/11 for example?
Dearborn Michigan has the largest muslim community in America, 2nd largest muslim community outside the Middle East so how often do these burnings take place in Dearborn?
How many christians or jews are killed by muslims in Dearborn on an annual basis?
How many daughters are killed by muslim fathers in Dearborn on an annual basis?
What about beheadings?
Was the picture you posted from Dearborn?
If no, where in America did that take place?
If no to that, where did it take place?
If 5k miles away, why should I be fearful of that with 3k miles of deep water between me and them?
If christians are all about being blessed, then why do they ignore their man-god in Jesus who said, "Blessed are the peacemakers?"
Why do christians also again ignore their man-god who said, "the meek shall inherit the earth?"
If America is a christian nation as so many claim, when are christians going to apply ALL the teachings of their man-god Jesus and not just cafeteria pick the stuff that's convenient for the moment and ignore the other stuff he's suppose to have said because it's not convenient?
Christians will often talk about all the bad stuff going down these days, lots of gloom and doom but did they ever consider all the bad stuff is because they've ignored the "good stuff" their man-god said?
People live in the greatest Country in HISTORY enjoy complete freedom to seek their life liberty and happiness---but yet somehow seem to enjoy to hate it .
Not perfect by any stretch ---but I am and will be to my dying day a PROUD AMERICAN.
I am and will be to my dying day a proud father.
USA NOT BEST COUNTRY EVER! ANYMORE!. - YouTube
Christians and none Christians alike forget or refuse to see that Jesus was clear..... “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.” --John 18:36
We piss and moan about the politics of the day, we allow ourselves to be frustrated by our elected officials' inability to deliver on their campaign rhetoric.....because we live in an obviously broken world.
Ever wonder why after all of mankind's "evolving" and "enlightenment" - peace continues to elude us? And why it always will?
Great piece of film and as a father of 4 I can also relate.
Even Stevphen Islam vs Christianity - YouTube
Ok.....even though I'm still not holding my breath....Ever wonder why after all of mankind's "evolving" and "enlightenment" - peace continues to elude us? And why it always will? Ah....never mind. God doesn't need the bible or anyone else to reveal Himself to humankind. I love this version of Romans chapter 1:18-32,
But God’s angry displeasure erupts as acts of human mistrust and wrongdoing and lying accumulate, as people try to put a shroud over truth. But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such can’t see: eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of his divine being. So nobody has a good excuse. What happened was this: People knew God perfectly well, but when they didn’t treat him like God, refusing to worship him, they trivialized themselves into silliness and confusion so that there was neither sense nor direction left in their lives. They pretended to know it all, but were illiterate regarding life. They traded the glory of God who holds the whole world in his hands for cheap figurines you can buy at any roadside stand.So God said, in effect, “If that’s what you want, that’s what you get.” It wasn’t long before they were living in a pigpen, smeared with filth, filthy inside and out. And all this because they traded the true God for a fake god, and worshiped the god they made instead of the God who made them—the God we bless, the God who blesses us. Oh, yes! Worse followed. Refusing to know God, they soon didn’t know how to be human either—women didn’t know how to be women, men didn’t know how to be men. Sexually confused, they abused and defiled one another, women with women, men with men—all lust, no love. And then they paid for it, oh, how they paid for it—emptied of God and love, godless and loveless wretches.Since they didn’t bother to acknowledge God, God quit bothering them and let them run loose. And then all hell broke loose: rampant evil, grabbing and grasping, vicious backstabbing. They made life hell on earth with their envy, wanton killing, bickering, and cheating. Look at them: mean-spirited, venomous, fork-tongued God-bashers. Bullies, swaggerers, insufferable windbags! They keep inventing new ways of wrecking lives. They ditch their parents when they get in the way. Stupid, slimy, cruel, cold-blooded. And it’s not as if they don’t know better. They know perfectly well they’re spitting in God’s face. And they don’t care—worse, they hand out prizes to those who do the worst things best!
Na, no truth here folks, nothing to see, keep moving..... :/
Yes . He nails it. THE LOW INFORMED VOTERS !!! PCP -THE POP CULTURE President.
