Critics Slam U.S. Government, Media for 'Weak' Response to Anti-Christian Attacks - FoxNews.com
Behind Egypy's uprising, Muslim-Christian solidarity
By now much has been said about what has been happening in Egypt. But less visible is that the uprising in Egypt has witnessed some remarkable scenes of Muslim-Christian understanding on the streets, especially in Tahrir Square. When Muslims prayed in Tahrir or Liberation Square, Christians formed a protective ring around them.
And when the Coptics and other Christians prayed, it was the turn of the Muslims to stand guard against attacks from pro-Mubarak thugs. You know, when interreligious dialogue takes place, sometimes those occasions tend to be stuffy, formal affairs laced with platitudes and niceties as no one wants to offend the other side.
But what took place at Tahrir Square on Sunday, Feb 6 had none of the usual preparations and pleasantries usually associated with these occasions. Instead, Muslims and Christians together reflected on the autocracy facing their country, the loss of innocent lives, and the struggle for freedom. All around them were symbols of that repressive reality: rocks and stones that had been used as projectiles, army tanks that failed to provide security... and wounded and hungry people.
you just proved her point....and are you justifying the murders because of this news piece?
Nothing in what he posted was attempting to "justify" anything. Calm down with the nonsense rhetoric, it makes you look like WillowTree.
did i say what he said justified anything? i suggest you're the one who needs to calm down, because i never said that.
So when will the US government and media report on the American violence, wounded and hungry homeless in our garbage strewn streets? When will our military protect Americans from rampant robberys and break-ins and drive by shootings and drugs? When will they protect our Southern border from from terrorists, criminals, drug runners, rapists, kidnappers, and disease carriers invading America?
One can point to senseless violence in any country. One can also point to good people treating there fellow man with dignity and respect.
While we must recognize the inhumanity of man to man, we must also recognize those that practice the golden rule, whatever their beliefs are. Simply vilifying a group because you do not like them because they are a differant religion is hardly something that the Christ I read about in the New Testament would approve of.
Posing it as a question doesn't change the fact that it's nonsense rhetoric.
Loaded question - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
it wasn't a loaded question. you're just hyper sensitive. he didn't comment or condemn the killings, rather, he posted a completely unrelated news story showing that muslims and christians get along. its a logical inference to wonder if he is using said story toi justify or minimize the murders of christians.
and he still hasn't answered a simple question. his post is like someone posting about murders by gang members, then he posts that gang member sang kumbuya
nobody villified any group in this thread. you're the one who went off topic and chose to ignore the killings.
