    Nor do the so-called "moderate" Muslims.

    Hello.

    Many times, Muslims accept the taxpayer's funded crates and pallets of cash and barrels and containers of food and supplies that Americans have given them.

    This free gift has torn billions of dollars from the bank accounts of Hard Working Americans.

    It seems that the Politicians and Military and the Police are happy to take our money away from us and dump it out at the feet of the Muslims in the Middle East and here in America.

    Do Muslims consider this a form of forced apology ? ? - Have we been forced at gunpoint to apologize to the Muslim world ? Or are the Politicians, Police and Military just really excited and really eager to funnel, sift, and strain and profit and rake out a portion for themselves and make extra money - by getting paid to count and handle and hand out Your tax money to every Muslim they can find on the planet who will take it ?

    Why would Muslims anywhere think that they should stay with their children or be responsible ?
    Joe Blow in America working at the local factory will take care of the bills.


    How many Joe Blow's who refuse to pay have to be killed, imprisoned and have all of their property confiscated in order to complete the apology that the Politicians, Police, and Military are wanting to make.

    How big of an apology would fill up their bank accounts. ?

    What are Inquisitions if not exactly what you describe as not being Christian?

    I cannot believe you cannot see the exact thing as Jihad.

    Why are you trying to use an immoral double standard which is a Christian forte?

    Gender wars and gay wars are still a staple of Christianity and their homophobic and misogynous ways.

    If secular forces had not brought Christianity to heel, they would be even more identical to Islam.

    Both religions are a disgrace to moral people.

    Depends on the Inquisition. There were more than one, and they were all different; the Spanish Inquisition was a defensive one, removing what it considered genuine existential threats to the state, and not entirely unjustified; in any case not many killed relative to how many the former Muslims rulers killed, so it can't be considered comparable to anything in Islamo-Land. All non-Christians got the same deal, a much better one than Muslims ever gave non-Muslims. The Portuguese Inquisition was pretty much along the same lines as the Spanish. The Roman Inquisition was more theological in nature, but it didn't kill hardly anybody after the stink raised by the campaign against the Cathars, who were fond of murdering priests to begin with and not the hapless noble innocents they're portrayed as in Protestant propaganda. The entire death toll for all of them combined?- maybe 6,000 to 9,000 tops, over some 400 years.

    Witch burnings? A pagan thing, usually done by superstitious peasants in times of stress,wars, and instability, by locals, and not a Church campaign; the Church's position for most of its existence is that 'witchcraft' was a pagan superstition and didn't exist, whatever some local ruler or hysteria might claim otherwise.

    So no, not even remotely similar to 'Jihad', even with the Crusaders, which were self-defense reactions to Muslim armies and pirates and constant attacks.

    Yeah right ... 'Scientific Enlightenment' murders far more people than Christians ever did; it even outdoes Islam as a murder machine.
