I can't seem to post on the "Why there" thread so I started a new thread.

The thread is probably currently locked...the mods seem to be deleting a lot of posts that were TOS violations. They will probably be functional later on.

Heard on the news this morning that a ship from the 18th Century was found near the WTC site. So, I imagine all building has come to a screeching halt!!

The What have liberals done thread appears to be locked too.


I don't Know if the CMs are intentially locking threads or if the system actually went wonky.


Anyway...


I had this reply regarding the murder of the cartoonist in relation to 9/11 and Islam that I think is somewhat applicable to your question.


Regarding the murder of the cartoonist, I just don't know what to think. How widely was his murder really supported among Muslim and particularly in Muslim countries? Because it felt like, from what I was seeing on the news at the time this controversy errupted, there were those who rioted and those who didn't riot, but quietly sympathized and even supported the visceral response.


Even though it was one person who committed that murder, and one person that died, it was symbolic of something much greater. And I think that murderer had much more private, quiet support than many people would admit. THAT response seems to come from Islam. It just does.


Now with 9/11, I also believe that a lot of people quietly, privately uttered the word "Good!" when they heard the US had been attacked. I just believe this. But in the case of 9/11, I'm guessing that the response was more related to policy than to religion, though with predominately Muslim countries, it seems like religion and politics intertwine.


THIS is why I'm glad the U.S. is not officially a Christian nation. I would hate for everything the U.S. does that people don't like to reflect on Christianity. .

Isn't that neat! Sort of an archaeological gift! This tells me that the new foundation is even deeper than the old one was.

I don’t believe for one minute it has to do with that entire religion. It is the largest religion in the world. Although, there may be some extremist groups within that religion it does not represent the whole religion. I do believe labeling a whole religion as violent and extremist is irresponsible unless it can be proven that an entire religion was invented and

If the murder of the artist, if the riots on the streets, weren't related to religion, what were they related to?


Yes, murders and crusades and atrocities have occured in the name of MANY religions.
