    Over the weekend, news went around about a Somali-born US Citizen who was caught by feds trying to set off a car bomb at a christmas tree lighting ceremony in Oregon. A thread already exists with that information here.

    But now situations get worse... apparently, someone thought it would be a good idea to burn down the church that the suspect attended. - Arsonist Sets Fire To Oregon Mosque Frequented By Mohamed Osman Mohamud

    Two more steps backward, people. What pathetic times our country is heading towards. :mad:

    The ARSONIST and Mohamed Osman Mohamud should both be put in the same prison cell as they seem to share the desire to kill AMERICAN citizens.

    not so sure that it is backwards, Muslims have a very long history of burning down churches and religious structures and people of any denomination that is not their own, dates back to mohammed himself. Mosque is a place where people go to preach hate speech and incitement to violence, not only this but a substantial amount of people put these to practice too.


    Only law in islam that says that non-muslim structures should not be burnt down, also states that this condition is only if they pay the jizya(discriminatory tax on non-muslims only).

    Allowing muslims to build mosques and print korans where any other belief system as such would be strictly banned already coincides with other laws, least their members actually go out and become practicing nazis. I think that something needs to be done.

    I don't believe in eye-for-an-eye, but when objectively addressing an offending ideology and not a race, perhaps it's an appropriate and due form of action

    That can be done without resorting to arson or something that is also illegal and hurts innocent people.

    If by 'innocent' you mean non-muslims, well then i agree. And no, here what hapened was that it was fired at a building, it was to burn the mosque down not the people in it. Note taken that this is the same mosque where this man came from, i think that if muslims really seriously care, they would do something, and the mosque would do something symbolic o show and appropriately that it doesn't condone what this man hadd done, then put action behind words. i don't think taht htis is possilble

    didn't we bring down the berlin wall? /all ex nazi gathering centers?

    people have freedom of opinion and this should always be respected, however they don't have a right to incite violence and hatred, not in front of the law.

    That is still not an excuse.
    You don't condemn or penalize an entire religion, or in this case an entire church for the actions of one person. That's the equivalent of destroying an entire housing facility and putting everyone who lives there out on the street just because one person who lived in the complex was a drug dealer or a rapist. The arsonist could be reacting to his angst against Muslims, and you can side with his motives if you choose. But the culprit's actions are still illegal and victimizes too many people who did nothing wrong... Muslim and non-muslim. It's a hate crime and should be treated as such.

    I spoke loud enough for you to respond even though you have me on ignore. 'Nuff said. Now do you have anything to contribute or are you just leaving your usual troll turds around the board before going back to your cage?

    Yeah, that is actually what is most important. Many Muslim kids are indoctrinated into a belief system that their religion is the one right and only true way, and that any American is the Devil. But when they lash out at us by painting everyone with the same brush, and we strike back by burning down their places of worship, where does that honestly get anyone? By doing such things, we only provide more ammunition for why we should be hated. Such actions shouldn't be tolerated on general principle, not because of any PC motivation, but because it is WRONG.

    For all of our high-horse thetoric, we often come across as a bunch of two-faced charlatans. It's no wonder so many countries in the world have been afraid of us in recent times.

    Regardless of theological and political differences, bombing a place of worship (by either side) is reprehensible. I am sure the racists who bombed the church in Birmingham decades ago felt similarly justified.

    Well we couldn't blame Nazis for Hitler either...

    No, we can.


    IF the religion/belief system preaches this, people practice it, then we could blame the religon. Just how many Muslims opposed what hitler done? Just how many rally against terrorism? The majority both support and fund terrorism.

    Am I arguing with Glenn Beck? :rolleyes:

    If that's your reasoning, then I hope you're atheist because within every religion there is a fanatical set, that makes up a very small percentage and not the majority as you incorrectly propagate, who teaches & promotes hate regardless if their followers act out on it. Otherwise, you have assumed a rather hypocritical stance on this issue and that's not a good look.
