What tolerance for Islam are you referring to when a country with a Muslim majority demands a new government? That doesn't have anything to do with the subject at all. These people want a coalition government that includes the Muslim Brotherhood and the Muslim Brotherhood has stated on the record that it doesn't have a problem with that. You are letting your fear get the best of you. It is their country and they have the right to self determination don't they?

"Fear" is yet another word that leftist cowards use. I'm not afraid of Islam. I just know what scum Islamists are and I predict that Egypt will have all sorts of Islamist troubles if not an Islamist government.



I know you think muslims are these great people that would love us if we'd throw Israel under the bus and quit interfering with their lives. But, Islam is a major source of world trouble and almost all of the Islamic nations have internal, violent religious strife at a major level or are Islamist oppressed shitholes.

I have no probelm with Muslims, yet I do have problems with Al-Qaeda and other oppressive Islamic governments



. We have backed a dictator who has abused and oppressed the Egyptian people. Maybe, just maybe, they are going to force a free and fair election, where the will of the people is respected. Everyone should have the right of self determination. And the things you have said about what I believe about Muslims is again wrong, don't you ever tire of misrepresenting people's beliefs?

Funny, I would think you would have a huge problem with "mainstream" Islam's view of homosexuality and women's rights.



You have islamocritophobia: a fear of criticizing anything about Islam.

Muslims and oppressive Muslim governments aren't the same thing. I believe in freedom of religion. I don't really like anything about the three major religion's treatment of women or gay people. All have fallen short of true religious values by succumbing to their weaknesses on the woman and gay issue. I don't belong to any of them. But I certainly don't advocate for people to not be free to choose and practice their religion.

Your typical dodge. Did I suggest that muslims shouldn't be able to practice their religion? My post was about your inability to ever criticize anything about Islam, or on the rare occasion where you do, you add the P.C. "and the other two major religions do it too." You have that idiotic gaga gladiatrix on your avatar, yet you are too cowardly to ever say anything specific that is bad about Islam.



Try an easy one: "Islam's position on homosexuality is despicable."



You can't do it. You'd have to add " ... but so is Christianity's."

I don't believe in any organized religion. I don't have to say it the way that would make you happy, because I don't care if you are happy or if you like me or if you agree with my points. Did I mention Christianity? I said all of the three major religions. I do criticize Islam, I just don't go so far as to call people of the Islamic faith scum, like you do. My avatar isn't gaga, it's Wonder Woman. What kind of American doesn't know who Wonder Woman is?



Where is your wife?

Ah, the troll paranoia arises. If my husband was posting, he would be nicer. I think you are the biggest (insert word that begins with "C" here) I've ever had the pleasure of not meeting.



I was never into superheroes or comic books. Too nerdy.



I knew you wouldn't do it. Saying "I do criticize" Islam doesn't mean you do. I did the search. You don't, except very broadly and with all the WT type qualifiers about other religions doing the same thing.

You can notice someone isn't not doing well in a debate when they start bashing members avatars (And it's called an avatar leighredf) I know leighredf not doing so well when she resort to avatar bashing. Hey leighredf not only you're a hypocrite, you're also a hater.

The problem with pushing for free elections is that they don't always get the results we want.
