    then how is it some muslims are actually at war against christians, but i don't hear any muslims roundly denouncing it as they would if someone drew a frickin cartoon of their prophet or bombed one of their synogues....

    Bomb Hits Egypt Church at New Year's Mass, 21 Dead

    A powerful bomb, possibly from a homicide attacker, exploded in front of a Coptic Christian church as a crowd of worshippers emerged from a New Years Mass early Saturday, killing at least 21 people and wounding nearly 80 in an attack that raised suspicions of an Al Qaeda role.

    The attack came in the wake of repeated threats by Al Qaeda militants in Iraq to attack Egypt's Christians.

    I don't believe we are -- or have ever claimed to be -- at war with Islam.

    Fair enough. They are liars.

    Now, I will concede that we ARE at war with Jihadist (Islamic) terrorists. And only a lying sack of shit Muslim (as opposed to the balance of Muslims who have no need for such dishonesty) would try to conflate our war on the Jihadists with a war against Muslims or Islam.

    Islam may not be the "religion of peace." That's hogwash. But there is a certain component of the Islamic world who are the actual bad guys. The rest of the Muslim world should be a whole lot more vocal in criticism of that filth.

    The liberal media is liberal.

    Liberals favor political correctness, whatever the fuck that might be one year to the next.

    At present, it is politically correct to pretend that the religion known as "Islam" is a peaceful religion. It is not true, but the liberal media never lets facts get in the way of the party line.

    It is also true that despite the fact that Islam is no religion of peace, it is also not a religion of terrorism. The Islamic Jihadists are just one very violent and rather psychotic expression of Islam. But that reality is too nuanced for the "story" the liberal media chooses to tell.

    If there really was a liberal media by your definition it would be trumpeting the times muslims condemned terrorism.

    btw, as far as I know no one claimed Islam was the religion of peace until Dubya did...and that was his stupidity on the mistranslation of the word Islam.

    :lol:
