“you know what they say about people that laugh at their own " jokes "....”

“Your comment is offensive to me and I am sure to many others.
Certainly Isis was born with a male body but her mind was always female and her body matches that now, and that’s what makes your statement an issue.
Clearly Isis is good looking but she was never a dude as you put it.”

“William A

OR.....they are doing the very thing they preach loudest against.

I've always believed that any public figure who is "outraged" by somebody else's private behavior (which doesn't harm anyone else) be it sexual, drug use or whatever-----is doing that which he preaches against.”

“Actually, more than 90%. The reason this study comes out with 85% is likely due to sample size and type. They probably had to use a higher proportion of people with higher and higher education to be able to compare the groups. Plus there are all kinds of religious beliefs out there, and these three options don't exactly cover all the bases.”

“I'm an atheist, so this is like asking me to pick between pest and cholera.

First off, what happened centuries or milennia ago is not relevant to 2012. Islam is clearly the more brutal religion this day in age.

Second, there's a lot of crazy stuff in the old testament, but it doesn't hold a candle to the crazy violent and downright evil paragraphs you find all throughout the quran.

And lastly, the scope of the inquisition was limited, and the crusades were defensive wars against islamic invasion, when they had conquered Spain, Portugal, half of France, half of eastern Europe, and Turkey.”

baldvicky on Jun 4, 2012 at 18:14:49

“This is not what their holy book demands. If you have studied Islam sufficiently you would know that Islam is more than simply the Quran. It's the Quran, sunna, interpretations by qadis, fatwas, and consists of different madhabs (schools of thought.) But by all means, show me the quote where it says to cut off the head of someone whom you get into an argument with.

The fact that this guy went crazy and used God's name in order to do so is a travesty, but it's not the religion's fault. It's the man's.

Remember the Crusades by the Christians beginning in the 11th century? They massacred, raped, and pillaged thousands of innocent Jews and Muslims in the name of God. OMG THAT RELIGION IS INSANE! They even killed OTHER Christians in France during the Albigensian Crusades. That's CrayCray.

My point is this: No religion is perfect. Every religion has it's hypocrisies and people that practice it imperfectly or (ahem) interpret it incorrectly leading to needless deaths. The fact that you're propagating incorrect information about the religion is unhelpful and I am suggesting to you that you do not know as much as you think you know.”

“The quran commands that muslims behead those who turn away from Allah. Women in islam are subservient to men. Her arguing with him is extremely haram in islam.

So is he mentally ill because he killed his wife, or is he mentally ill because he believes what is written?”

Plann 9 on Jun 5, 2012 at 01:38:01

“Both. I think you can safely say that anyone who subscribes to an extremist group and fervently believes in their tenets has some degree of mental illness/instability. Not all, however, are going to decapitate their spouses. This man obviously has a GREAT degree of psychopathology; that, combined with medieval beliefs, resulted in a horrific tragedy.”

“I have a problem with the theory of beheading this woman due to the Koran. They report says he was a "German" man. No mention has been made that he was a convert to a religion. Something smells wrong here.”

“Now you're into nonsense. Pain is subjective, but has objective effects on the body (higher depression rates- you know, as associated with women, et al). So if men neither report nor experience the effects of higher pain, how are you coming up with your data. Perhaps via the use of a Vulcan Mind Meld?”
