  •  Religion is the crime here. (4+ / 7-)

    These people living in the stone ages, go insane over a cartoon, or a video making fun of their pretend god.
    ( All god's are pretend.)
    This should be a discussion about religion.  How insane it is , and why we should be kicking the teeth out of people who feel religion is real.  Mormon, Christian, Muslim, Scientology, Catholic, what ever.  All scams.

    Religion is the crime.  These stone age, brainwashed people went into such a frenzy to KILL people, over a video need some serious help.  

    Mitt Romney is Sarah Palin without the lipstick.  He is a moron, and will be tossed out of the GOP team after this election.  Wait for the real fun when Larry Flynt gets a couple of people to disclose how much money Mitt Romney has stolen from the United States through his income tax filings, and his off shore  accounts.

        Religion is what killed our Ambassador.  Religion is what killed Dr. George Tiller by Christians living in the U.S.
        Religion is dangerous, and should be dealt with in the same manner as any other terror operation.  

        We are witnessing brainwashed people , killing other people , through the mechanism of religion.  

        You can't get any more dangerous.

          Whom have the mennonites attacked lately?

          That you want to "kick the teeth" out of religious people while denouncing religion-based violence is an interesting bit of hypocrisy.  How fortunate you lack both the power and the opportunity.

            I don't think that's right. With all the violence being proclaimed on this site against R$, your 'exception' doesn't ring true.

            Since Dr. Tiller was murdered by a white christian in this country I'm not throwing stones at other religions' faith-based violence.

            How come this action against the Ambassador is worse than that murder Scott Roeder perpetrated?

            In the middle of the United States of America?

            And mentioning Mennonites? A small religious group? Try picking on an actual cult that causes harm.

            I thought you had more integrity than that.

              ...With all the violence being proclaimed on this site against R$, your 'exception' doesn't ring true.
              What exception?  The commenter proposed violence ("kicking the teeth out of") religious people in general and proclaimed all religious groups to be "terror operations".  The statement is factually incorrect.
               
              Since Dr. Tiller was murdered by a white christian in this country I'm not throwing stones at other religions' faith-based violence.
              I completely agree.  However, Dr. Tiller's murderer does not represent all Christians any more than those who attacked our embassy in Libya represent all muslims.
               
              How come this action against the Ambassador is worse than that murder Scott Roeder perpetrated?
              It isn't.  I neither said nor implied that it was.
               
              In the middle of the United States of America?
              By whom specifically?
               
              And mentioning Mennonites? A small religious group? Try picking on an actual cult that causes harm.
              I think there is a misunderstanding here.  I offered the Mennonites as an example of a religious group that belies the commenter's statements that all religious groups are terror operations.
               
              I thought you had more integrity than that.
              You were correct.

        I get a little upset.  It's usually based on religion.

        I got just as upset when Dr. George Tiller was shot in the head by a "Christian"

        So.  Let me be a little upset.  I am fine with it.

        Personally I feel religion is what killed our ambassador.

          for so called Christian pastor, Terry Jones? You seem to be exclusively attacking Muslims, just like Mitt Romney and the Republicans.

          Has Mitt Romney denounced Terry Jones?

          The feeling is anger, or perhaps rage or hatred, and that's between you and your neurochemicals (after all, you can't deny that the mind of a living person is dependent upon their biological brain).  

          The statement "religion is what killed our ambassador" is not an emotion, it's a belief, as arbitrary as any other second-hand attempt at attribution, and on its face "not even wrong."  

          Speaking of George Tiller, he was religious too: he was in church when he was assassinated.  

          So: if religion makes people shoot each other, what do you have to say about the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King?  Or Bishop Desmond Tutu?  Or George Tiller for that matter?  What about Quaker pacifists?  

          Seems to me your hypothesis doesn't stand up to scrutiny.

        •  I think your comment is well-reasoned, (0+ / 0-)

          Earto44. I think NOT NEARLY ENOUGH people got upset when Dr. Tiller was killed.

          I think bad luck and a bullet killed our ambassador. Ignorance, poverty, too many guns, religion, an unsettled society, all helped set the stage.

          But I'm not reccing your comment, I've seen how the mob on here can get.

      the Dalai Lama and Bishop Desmond Tutu?
      Most people "feel religion is real." The vast majority never commit an act of violence. But if you'd like to have a talk with the guys who attacked the consulate in Benghazi about how their religion is false, be my guest. I'm sure it will go well.

          The world is an interconnected place.
          Expecting to force your beliefs on others is pretty childish. You have a set of terms you use to describe the world and its meaning. Other people have other terms, and other stories. I find it interesting that you assign the blame for violence to religion when both religious people and atheists commit violent acts. The belief they have in common is that it is acceptable to use violence. Your words come dangerously close to condoning the use of force to impose your beliefs on others (actually had I taken them literally I'd say you did condone it). Your attitude is not one of peace.

      ... that language is almost a direct word-for-word quote from an extreme religious rightie preacher who used it in relation to President Obama.
