"Fight and slay the Christians" (Koran 9:5)



Excellent quote, except you forgot the "Did not the Romans..." before and the "...because they believe in Allah as we do?"after.


I'm just guessing because there is no such quote as Koran 9:5.  If you had actually read the Koran, you would know the references are more like Imran 16.  Book and line, not chapter and verse.

Asking today's Americans to vote for a Muslim for President is like asking Americans in 1940s whether they'd vote for a Japanese-American candidate. The answer to both is probably no.

Well you got nothing to worry about, no Muslim is running for president last time I checked.

You obviously misread (again) the topic of this thread. You seem to misread a lot. http://www.rif.org/

We have one Muslim in Congress. Seems to be doing fine so far.

Glad there are Americans who can get beyond the evil Muslim tag.

Once again clueless and no reading comprehension.  The thread is a hypothetical question.  Have they covered the word "hypothetical" in your high school english class, yet?

There are over a Billion muslims in the world.  How many terrorists are there? 10,000, 30,000, even if there are 100k that's still less than 1 in every 10,000 or .001%.

When you take into account Abortion related bombings, The IRA, Ulster Loyalists, Serbian terrorists, Basque seperatists, the Army of God, Lord's resistance army, Nagaland Rebels, Aryan Nation Army, Klu Klux Klan, Branch Dividians, Jim Jones Cult, and about a hundred others, it seems there are just as many "Christian" terrorists, if not more.

When the country is in the midst of two wars against Muslim extremists, is it hard to believe Americans might have some distrust of that particular religion and probably not want to elect a President who had that belief?

My answer is a definite NO, because we are supposed to be "one nation under God" and I would like a president who is at least on board with that concept.

No, it's very easy to believe.  That doesn't mean that it would be right, proper, or sensible however.

I'd be happier to know that my president didn't support faith-based funding initiatives

That rules out Obama. Although, he seems to have a different spin on how we would run his
program.
