An Annecdotal Summary of the Occupation of Iraq

<t>MP, We are talking about organised, large scale, total removal, by force, of small children from their parents, and placing them in "homes" in the cities. 40 years later, many of these families are still trying to locate each other. Are you saying that this was a recommended policy? Churches and ...

An Annecdotal Summary of the Occupation of Iraq

<t>Quote There's also a very big difference between converting primitive people who live in trees and converting those of a major, civilized faith such as Islam. I know what you're saying, and I agree with you. However, no one really lives in trees. All indiginous cultures that I know of are, in the...

An Annecdotal Summary of the Occupation of Iraq

<t>Quote But Omar, remember a tree that is bent too far in the wrong direction, requires twice as much force to be bent back in the right direction. More often, more force is used than necessary.Well, maybe I like my tree the way that it is. Why is that anyone's business? I'm very happy for anyone t...

An Annecdotal Summary of the Occupation of Iraq

QuoteI see you point, it is very relative.Well, I can tell you that there is an entire generation of aboriginal Australians who don't find their experience relative at all. It was extremely painful, and many of them were traumatised for life.

An Annecdotal Summary of the Occupation of Iraq

<t>Quote But in normal situations, they are very likely to behave according to the standard Christian ethics. The devil is in the interpretation of what the rules are, and who they apply to. Were the crusaders bad men? If not, why did they engage in acts of extreme violence and bloodshed? Less than ...

An Annecdotal Summary of the Occupation of Iraq

<t>Quote most of the low-level evangelical types are good people Not in my experience. In my experience, they are mean, vicious, patronising, low IQ, self-satisfied bastards. They talk in a certain way, and act in a certain way, and you think "Oh, such lovely people", but they are willing to witness...

Profound Quotes

<t>Quote Yeah Christians do some pretty dumb stuff. Priests molest little boys and manipulate their older followers into giving them sexual favors. Christianity has led to invasions and wars and opressions of many cultures and subcultures. But at least Christians don't blow themselves up. I think we...

Profound Quotes

<t>Well, they are not all so "little". There was a very big story in Egyptian newspapers about a year ago: a Coptic monk in a monastry in the south of Egypt (85% are muslims, %15 are Coptic Christians) not only fornicated (to use Iron Mike's favourite verb) with a large number of women who came to s...

An Annecdotal Summary of the Occupation of Iraq

Quote Still, it's a better use of church money than helping to send Russian Jews into the illegal settlements in the Occupied Territories!I fully agree. I fully agree. It also takes their minds off other activities. Children will feel safer. Much safer.

An Annecdotal Summary of the Occupation of Iraq

<t>I just saw an issue of Time magazine from last June. The cover story was on the large number of Evangelists who are either standing in line to be sent the Middle East to convert muslims, or are already there. I knew that Billy Graham's son (Franklin?) was actively into that since quite sometime, ...

<t>Quote Now, he would be cool. He would talk to me. No Christian ever did that and said in the name of Jesus even ... They'd throw me in jail and write bad articles about me and then go to church on Sunday and say Jesus is a wonderful man and he's coming back to save us. But they don't understand t...
