“Coming from Newt the conclusion would be that he no longer wants to install democratic governments in the countries we invade. He'd like to go back to installing dictators that easier to control. Those pesky democratic countries keep electing leaders that don't like us.”

“Sure. If you do so in a movie that is fine too. There is no excuse for starting a violent exchange. They are trying to cow us into respecting them. It doesn't work that way.”

“Sadly your logic that the reaction is predefined violence is not a valid argument. Why stop at insulting Muhammad? Why not react violently when we insult Ayatollah Khomeini? Why not react violently when I insult Stalin? People choose to be part of a religion, they can choose how to interpret that religion. You can choose to be violent or you can choose to be peaceful. In this case the choice of violence is only going to get more mockery and derision thrown at you. I hope it ends soon, but it won't end because the rest of the world is afraid of Islamic violence. It will end when Islam chooses to be peaceful.”

“Islam should be constantly insulted until they get used to it. The brave cartoonists and film makers that mock Islam are heroes. Every other religion gets (and deserves) mockery for their irrational beliefs why should Islam be above it? It is just a way to protect their rapidly dwindling power.”

“How about a ban on Liberal postmodernalistic progressive repressive speach , starting with The United States Telling the United Nations to "Stick it ".”

“So if I insult and mock you, your faith or no faith, country and kin, parents, wife or husband, boyfriend, kids, intellect, humanity, habits and all that you adhere to and value, then you will tell me that ok, you just get use be mocked and insulted..! Is that your logic and reasoning?!”

“"Used to it"? Better for everyone to pull back and economically/financially rein in those who speak/publish with the very intent to create death and destruction.

It doesn't have to be government that does this. It can be the very religious/moral/ethical leaders that feel it necessary to speak/publish and (others) to react violently to immature and anarchistic culture bombs.

It takes two to tango EVEN if some people refuse to hold hands. ;o)

“The US routinely supports religion by allowing them to be tax exempt. Also it should be noted that the founders did not use "In God we trust". This was adopted in 1956 to counteract the godless communists we were battling. The founders apparently knew better than to adopt any motto with religious connotations. Their motto was E Pluribus Unum, much more fitting for atheists.”

“Seriously, the writer here is out of her mind. Resorting to hackneyed "just the men" singalong is unforgivable much less epic.”

“I recall cringing when Sir Paul said "just the men" followed, sexist-ly by "now just the women". John would have saved the day with some born mot, but alas.”

“Well killing the estate tax would remove more money from our budget than the entire food stamp program costs, but HEY that money goes to billionaires rather than starving poor people with kids.

At least you can tell where his priorities are right from the start.”

“This is a reasonable idea. I think the big city markets can do well without any public funding but if you drive across the heartland of this country you realize that there are a lot of tiny towns that actually have a public radio station. It is doubtful that those stations could make it on their own donations and we would need some means to support them. It is certainly reassuring to hear thoughtful programming among the crazy fox outlets.”

“If I was religious I would say "God cares". As an atheist I would say all of humanity cares that you are forcing your religious beliefs on innocent people who wish to speak out against unfair laws. Murder is murder regardless of the motivation.”

A Reasonable Argument for God's Existence

“Common sense is not a good yardstick when measuring such vast or strange things. E=MC^2 certainly does not seems commonsensical, good thing we found ways to prove it.”

A Reasonable Argument for God's Existence

Commented Mar 7, 2011 at 00:49:20 in Religion

“Quite a flimsy argument. Most scientist will admit that there is room for the transcendent in the universe: ie, those events which cannot be fully explained. Perhaps "God" did spark the big bang or (much less likely) provide the first single cell animal from which we evolved. Scientist will agree that we have not yet proven precisely how those events began and unfolded. But that transcendent "God" bears no resemblance to the Biblical God, the Allah of the Quran, or any other major religion. If the Rabbi rejects those sacred books as man made myth then he will find himself welcome in the group of scientists who consider themselves open to the existence of God. Those people who seek the truth.”

“It makes sense that men are leaving their religions more than women. That is because women are not as empowered as men in most ways, so they are not as free to leave. I have faith that eventually women will be treated as equal and will join men in the rejection of their religions. Then we can rationally solve our problems, love all humanity, and leave the dark days of delusion behind us.”

“Thank you, it is nice to hear another voice for sanity. I can't get over how thin skinned we have all (seemingly) become in public. Tolerance seems to have died, a victim to partisan posturing.”
