  • The ignorance of some people never ceases to amaze me... It's beyond disgusting how simply believing one way or another can put your life in danger... Nothing changes. Sad!

  • geez some people. I think people tend to forget that terrorism isn't limited to one people. I bet that guy didn't think about the fact that he was being a terrorist by attacking a poor man simple because of his faith. Just because a few people who attacked and terroized people claimed to be of the muslim faith means nothing. Every religion has people out terrozing others that doesn't mean anything. If he needed an example in another religion what about extremists who bomb abortion clincs? Or that church protests at military funerals. I don't think Timothy McVay or however the heck you spell it was muslim. It's just sick what people will do over someones faith.

  • I heard about this. I think it shows that the things people are wanting to cast onto all Muslims - that they're barbarians, that they're terrorists - are things that we are guilty of ourselves. Its not an Islam vs. the world problem, its something that even non Muslims are guilty of, something we see right here in our own country. Shows us for the hypocrites we can be, I think...

  • I agree, you can't attack a person just because they are of a certain faith. Granted 9/11 was a enormous amount of lost lives, but as an example, when other faiths cause deaths say Italians, Do we run around killing and attacking Italians, because most of them are Catholic? So you kill someone, & someone retaliates, and so on & so on &, so it goes on & on & on. It's will be a never ending battle if people can't just get along as people. We are a free country and can worship which ever God of our choosing. It has to start somwhere, or end somewhere. I for one could care what religion you are, if I like you I like you, if I don't I don't, and I may not even know your religion, I just don't stop and ask my friends that particuar question.
