"Religious Freedom" crosses the line??
The only reason why I read some of that, Wearyeyed, is because I was baking several hundred loaves of bread until 10 PM, drank too many XS's too late, and now I'm too tired to do anything, but I'm still awake at 2:15 in the morning. That was really funny. It's so funny because when I read the Bible, I wondered some of those same things, especially about Samson and David.

It was pretty silly, but it DID make me laugh out-loud a few times...

The funniest part was the commentary on Samson killing a thousand men with an ass's jawbone. :rotfl:
(Is there funny stuff in the Quran?)

On a serious note, there are parts of the Bible that are supposed to be funny. N.T. Wright, Bishop of Durham, England, likes to point this out in his books. Ever read him? He's an amazing writer on Christian history and apologetics.

Also interesting, there's a Googleleads link to the church that I'm a member of, at the bottom of the "Bad-ass Bible Verses" pages that you referenced.

Too much of the fear arises from ignorance and this is compounded by the metaphorical "shoot first and ask questions later" reactions so commonplace in the US.


I agree the the problem is ignorance. But you would have to agree that ignorance of the the fact that there are non-violent Muslims can be just as harmful as being ignorant of the leaders who DO advocate violence.

America HAS been very open to moderate Muslims. Unfortunately, we have gotten burned. Here are a couple of instances where we DID try to reach out only to find out many the "moderate" leaders were terrorists and/or people who supported terrorism.

There is a balance between being accepting of all faiths and being so open-minded that your brains fall out.



Al-Awlaki Led Prayer Services for Congressional Muslim Staffers Association After 9/11
The terrorist now subject to a "kill or capture" order was welcomed in D.C. immediately after 9/11.

He is far from the only terrorist welcomed by the CMSA.
September 16, 2010 - by Patrick Poole

When a report challenging our national security policy of ignoring Islamic supremacism through Islamic law was released during a Capitol Hill press conference on Wednesday (disclosure: I was one of the co-authors of the report, titled: “Shariah: The Threat to America”), among the chief critics were representatives from the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association (CMSA).

This group, which has been briefing both Democrat and Republican congressional leadership in recent months, claiming that there is nothing inherently violent in Islamic law, has a very poor history of embracing Islamic radicals — even al-Qaeda terrorists.

Immediately after 9/11, the CMSA began holding Friday afternoon prayer services on Capitol Hill. Who did they choose to lead them in their prayers? Al-Qaeda sheikh Anwar al-Awlaki, who is currently subject to a kill or capture order issued by President Obama. In fact, video of al-Awlaki preaching to the CMSA was included in the 2002 documentary, Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet. (That video clip is available to view via the Investigative Project on Terrorism.)

Identified in that clip listening to the al-Qaeda cleric: Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR); then-CAIR communications specialist Randall “Ismail” Royer, who is currently serving a 20-year federal prison sentence on terrorism charges; and CMSA founder and former president Jameel Alim Johnson.

In 1991, the first Muslim cleric to deliver opening prayers for Congress was Siraj Wahhaj. Two years later he was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing trial. He also served as a character witness for the defense of terrorist leader Omar Abdel Rahman. Wahhaj has openly called for the destruction of American democracy, to be replaced by an Islamic state governed by shariah.

Another regular fixture on Capitol Hill for more than a decade was Abdurahman Alamoudi — friend to Democrats and Republicans alike, and arguably the most prominent Islamic leader in America. As president of the American Muslim Council, he advised U.S. presidents and was courted by a number of presidential candidates. He established the Muslim chaplain program for the Department of Defense, worked with Republican activist Grover Norquist to establish the Islamic Institute lobbying organization, and served on the advisory board for CAIR.

Today, Abdurahman Alamoudi is no longer roaming the halls of Congress, or having lunch at the White House. He was arrested in 2003 and is currently serving a 23-year prison sentence for his role in a plot to assassinate Saudi King Abdullah at the request of Libyan intelligence.

Public School Field Trip: Inside Video Captures Kids Bowing to Allah



The Islamic Society of Boston was founded by Abdulrahman Alamoudi, who is currently serving 23 years in jail on terror charges. For years, its board of trustees included Yusuf al Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood who was banned by Bill Clinton from the United States in 1999. Qaradawi now chairs the Muslim American Society’s university, which offers classes inside the mosque. Over half the mosque’s $15.5 million price tag was funded by wealthy Saudis and since it opened, several of its leaders, donors and members have been implicated in Islamic extremism.

Oussama Ziade, a big donor to the mosque, is now a fugitive in Lebanon after being indicted in 2009 for dealing in the assets of an Al Qaeda financier. Ahmad Abousamra, the son of the Boston Muslim American Society’s former vice-president Abdulbadi Abousamra, is now a fugitive in Syria, fleeing the country before being indicted in 2009 on charges of aiding Al Qaeda. One of the mosque’s imams, Abdullah Faaruuq, was captured on tape in 2010 telling followers to “pick up the gun and the sword” and to defend another local terrorist Aafia Siddiqui from the U.S. government. Siddiqui, who was one of the imam’s congregants, is an MIT graduate and Al Qaeda member awaiting sentencing for attempting to murder FBI agents in Afghanistan while shouting “death to America.”

IBOFB, I was at a holiday party this weekend and got a laugh when I looked closely at this bottle.

Apparently Jaegermeister is in on this German plot to conquer the world with Christianity.
