    For the most part the soldiers we send over are christian.

    Then they fight in wars and the constitutions our government helps draw up for these countries have islam writted right into them. These are islamic democracies and heavily influenced islamic governments.


    Would seem to me that christians in this country wouldn't want their brothers and sisters made into second rate citizens in countries where we install the governments and write the constitutions.

    Why the surprise? President Bush called for a Crusade, didn't he?
    (btw, likely the dumbest thing ever uttered by any president; past, present or future).

    He said something like his christian faith had a hand in his foreign policy.

    I'm saying if you're christian, why support a war that implements islamic governments?

    There are probably a plethora of things you do not understand which suprise you. Being curious is a good thing.

    I can't remember ever saying a good word about Bush, but the word crusade can be used without meaning something similar to the Crusades.

    So maybe he meant that, maybe not.

    Hah.

    All Muslims are not against those wars, why should Christians be against them? Just because you think you understand something does not mean you are qualified to comment on it.

    It's a message board and free speech, we're all qualified to comment on whatever we want.

    It's a completely different principle, the muslim majority in those countries are getting their religion written into law, why aren't american christians upset that the christians in those countries have to live under an islamic government? Does that sound like freedom to you?

    Apparently you also have trouble understanding English.

    I never said you could not post about any subject that fills your tiny brain, I just pointed out your lack of qualification to effectively discuss the subject.

    Quantum filled his 2 childish insults per post quota here lol.

    Well done completely evading the subject though, I don't know why you click on threads when you know it's a subject you can't rationally discuss.
