    That kinda feeds right into my point though


    Thats what it should be for muslim violence but the progoganda/rhetoric is so bad, the government is so skewed against them, that they will fit anything they can to being muslim, the Quran, tie it to isis, and it's ridiculous to believe that ********. Its hard to even trust anything that comes out about different happenings.

    They will NEVER link violence to someone being motivated by Christianity but that isn't the case for Islam.


    Sure, there will be some things here and there that are motivated by a poor interpretation of Islam but people are kidding themselves if they think it isn't the same case for Christianity. It just won't come out.

    OK, that I can buy. And you're right, especially since 9/11 there has been the perception that Muslim = terrorist far far too often/easily.

    they do link some violence, even in this country, to Christianity (i.e. abortion clinic bombings) but at nowhere close to the same level

    And thanks for this 'taste' of what Muslims live with...just seeing "right wing Christian terrorists" just didn't feel right...but neither should it feel right when said about Muslims. There aren't many of them here in SD, but the ones I know are about as close to being terrorists as I am to running for national office.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    there is no group compared to radical Islamic terrorists that hate America.

    if there was it would already be headline news.

    what Timothy McVeigh did had nothing to do with being Christian. he was against the government.

    They'll NEVER relate it to one being a Christian, and will always relate terrorism to one being a Muslim. They'll always do whatever they can to link it to Islam, the Quran , or ISIS.

    Anti Islam propaganda and hatred is so deeply ingrained its scary.

    Just didn't feel like explaining it a little more haha

    they literally use and abuse the Islamic religion as their ideology, that is the point.

    people who happen to be Christian (or Catholic) are not using that as the ideology as to why they do what they do. even white supremacists, their reason is race, not religion.

    What are you talking about? I know of plenty of groups that hate America, and evey one can be compared to radical Islamic terrorists. In fact, you can compare any two objects you want - even apples and oranges.

    name a comparable group outside of America that uses a religion as the reason they do what they do, that has been a threat to America, that has wanted to impact America and kill people.

    radical Islam uses Islam as their ideology, that is what they do. for example, white supremacists are not using a religion as why they do what they do, that would be race.

    You did not include the term “religious” or “religion” in your statement, which is why it is dumb.

    I already mentioned it.

    radical Islam abuses the Islamic religion as their ideology. white supremacists are not using a religion as their ideology. while there may be some examples, it's clearly not what is implied here.

    even if this was accurate, it still doesn't fit what I was talking about. there are no other radicalized groups outside of America to be banned from entering America.

    Yes they do use religion. They use a lot of.religius symbolism and reference the bible a lot.

    If islamic terrorist use islam then white terrorist no.doubt use christianity.
