Liberalism

noun
1.
the quality or state of being liberal, as in behavior or attitude.
2.
a political or social philosophy advocating the freedom of the individual, parliamentary systems of government, nonviolent modification of political, social, or economic institutions to assure unrestricted development in all spheres of human endeavor, and governmental guarantees of individual rights and civil liberties.
3.
(sometimes initial capital letter) the principles and practices of a liberal party in politics.
4.
a movement in modern Protestantism that emphasizes freedom from tradition and authority, the adjustment of religious beliefs to scientific conceptions, and the development of spiritual capacities.

Have at it boys but just remember you can't kill an idea with bullets and bombs, and ISIS is an idea buried deep within Islam, which you also can't kill. The solution is very simple, you'll just hate it even though it's why the Jews no longer stone homosexuals and the Christians no longer burn witches. The fix is the same, Liberalism. Know what the Holy book says, and then do the right thing instead because you moved out of the cave and into the light that liberalism shines down upon you.

Does that mean liberals find it OK for a religious group to cut off the heads of anyone that is not of their faith and Christians and Jews should turn the other cheek?

I'm pretty sure that's exactly what it means.
Which part tipped you off?

Dear PaintMyHouse
you forgot to distinguish the two branches of Liberalism that are at odds with each other politically to this day

* Classic Liberalism from Locke emphasizes the stance of Conservatives
who believe in limited govt, that the people should invoke the freedom and liberty directly as given by God or Nature,
and the Constitutional laws are to check and LIMIT the encroachment or abuse of govt to take those freedoms
away and put them in the hands of a dictatorial govt

* Radical Liberalism from Rousseau did not trust people but put trust in govt to establish
and impose/enforce the "will of the people on everyone" to make sure people did not abuse freedoms.

So this is where today's Liberals keep going through govt to try to establish rights that way,
while today's Conservatives argue that rights and freedoms exist naturally
and it is the role of the govt to defend those, not to impose on them by top down authority.

Give it maybe 50 - 100 years and Islam will have been liberalized enough to fit into the modern world. Who knows maybe even sooner than that. :thup:

I agree fully. The American left should convert isis to liberalism and gay rights. Go over there and get right on that.

How many heads are they going to cut off and burn alive during that period of time?

Probably too many. Just like pretty much every religion that's ever existed. But sanity always wins out in the end.
