Muslims and Christian death cults

In the interests of parity, (and via Chris), I feel that I should comment on this Christian's attempt to suicide bomb an abortion clinic.

Now, many people have pointed out to me, in conversation, that there are Christians who are just as fanatical and dangerous as the Islamists that we encounter; this is not something that I subscribe to. Yes, there are fanatical Christians, but they are not as dangerous as the Muslims: why?

It is an interesting fact that the Muslim suicide bombers, who have so troubled the West, have tended to be well-educated and, other than their ludicrous belief in their invisible friend, intelligent men with a real dedication to their death wish.

Fanatical Christians, on the other hand, tend to be a little more like the man in this article; that is, they make two short planks look like fucking Einstein. [Emphasis mine.]
Based on what he told police, David McMenemy's plan to destroy an abortion clinic worked out much differently in his head from what played out Monday in Davenport, Iowa.

McMenemy, 45, most recently of Rochester Hills admitted dousing the interior of his silver 2004 Saturn with gasoline he had in a Gatorade bottle and plunging the vehicle into a women's health clinic early that morning. And he told police he planned to die in the ensuing fire.

But the clinic whose lobby the native Detroiter drove into -- the Edgerton Women's Health Center -- doesn't perform abortions or even provide referrals for them. And the impact wasn't enough to cause a fire, so McMenemy had to pour more gas on the car.

And once it was ablaze, he scratched his plan to kill himself when he realized it was going to be painful.

No one was injured.

So, something of a failure then: his target had nothing to do with abortions, he gave up the suicide idea when he realised that it would hurt and he couldn't even get the car to explode properly. I guess that that why the well-educated Muslim guys make bombs.
It all left local and federal police wondering whether McMenemy is a calculating criminal who spent weeks scouting the Midwest for abortion clinics to destroy, or nothing more than a suicidal, unemployed amateur criminal.

"Is he just a fruitcake, or is he better connected?" asked Scott County Prosecutor William Davis.

Really, mate, I think that you hit the nail on the head with the "fruitcake" comment, to be honest.

Generally speaking, Christians are quite happy to protest and do stupid things as long as they aren't put to too much trouble: there isn't really a Christian plan to remake the world under their God, no matter what you think of the neo-cons. Sorry.

The Muslims, on the other hand...

I'm posting from aus and with what you got goin on I'm glad of that.
Could you tell me roughly what % of your christian comunity are (radical,fundamentalist's who want to impose their radical ideals and beliefs on the whole country)
All sounds a bit Taliban-ish? When do the stonings begin?
A good christian heart would not force their ideals on others,they are more likely to serve the people in any way they can offering assistance to those in need. Would this not be gods work?
Some may appreciate their efforts and want to be more like them. Ridicule, biggotry and condemnation isn't the way to go- they'll never change hearts and minds that way.

I think if there were a god he would want people to find Humanity.
True humanity can only be achieved by concidering others/caring about others as much as,if not more than yourself.
Then and only then could we call ourselves a -Civilisation-

I say, Let live,
but Live and let live.

I'm pro-life always have been. World estimations of the number of terminations carried out each year is anywhere between 20 and 88 million.
3,500 per day / 1.3 million per year in America alone. 50% of that 1.3 million CLAIMED failed birth control was to blame. A further 48% had failed to use any birth control at all. That leaves 2%that had medical reasons. That means a stagering 98% may have been avoided had an effective birth control been used.

Correction, DK - there are no fanatical Christians because when they become fanatical, they cease to be Christian. Sermon on the Mount.

Don't like this, DK

It would be best to remove all reference to religion to all these terrorists, bombers and looneys.

We don't talk about Moslem burglars, or Christian rapists, so why take the relgious label on to any extremist

John,

I'm afraid that this is what many say.

Unfortunately, you cannot get away from the fact that the 9/11 bombers, the 7/7 bombers, and many of those other murderers documented on The Religion Of Peace kill in the name of Islam. To ignore their religion as motivation is as wrong as writing off all BNP supporters as knuckle-dragging morons simply because they vote for that party.

The same applies to radical pro-lifers -- you know, the sort that kill doctors -- the vast majority of whom are so radical because of their religion.

Burglars -- motivation = money.
Rapists -- motivations include sex and power.

Do you see the difference? The reason that religious fanatics (most fanatics, actually, but religious ones in particular because they believe that the Koran or Bible are the unalterable will of an otherwise silent deity whose existence cannot be proved) are so dangerous is because there is no negotiating with them.

Generally speaking, I'm with Ferris Bueller here: "isms, in my opinion, are generally a bad thing"...

Something for pro-lifers to concider.....



I am a pro-lifer who has no religious convictions at all . I didn't need the fear of god or anything else to come to my decision, just a good sense of what is right and wrong.
You see we were all once a fetus. Is it beyond the realm of possibilities that when your mother first learned she was carrying you, she may have considered her options? What if she had decided to terminate? Would that have been OK?
You would not exist, if you have children they would not exist, and your (husband or wife) would be married to someone else. You would have been deprived of all your experiences and memories. In this day and age with terminations being so readily available and so many being carried out, if you make it to full term
you can consider yourself lucky. Lucky you had a mother that made the choice of life for you. Don't you think they all deserve the same basic human right, LIFE?
I'm all for contraception, prevention is certainly better than termination.
Did you know you can get an implant that is safe, 99.9% effective, and lasts for three years? Just think girls not even a show for three years, wouldn't that be great? I think too many people rely too heavily on the last option (abortion), I think if abortions weren't so readily available people would manage their reproductive system far better resulting in a fraction of the number of unwanted pregnancies.
World wide there are over 50 MILLION aborted pregnancies each year. In America 3,500 terminations carried out every day, that's over 1.3 million every year, 50% of all cases claimed that birth control had been used, 48% admitted they took no precaution, and 2% had a medical reason. That's a staggering 98% that may have been prevented had an effective birth control been used. Don't get me wrong, I suspect the percentages in Australia would be much the same.
Just a lot of unnecessary killing.

At the point of conception is when life began for you. This was the start of your existence. Your own personal big bang. Three weeks after conception heart started to beat. First brain waves recorded at six weeks after conception. Seen sucking thumb at seven weeks after conception.

I am convinced that in the not too distant future, people will look back at many of the practices of today with disbelief and horror.




Want to know how to find humanity-?

True humanity can only be achieved, by concidering others/ caring about others, as much as, if not more than yourself.

Until we do we are no more than an uncivilisation, with all the uncivilised things that we do...

If you think the point of conception is NOT when life begins, and all you have is a clump of cells and not a living human being.
Then at least concider this -

Soon after you were conceived you were no more than a clump of cells.
This clump of cells was you at your earliest stage, you had plenty of growing to do but this clump of cells was you none the less. Think about it.
Aren't you glad you were left unhindered to develope further.
Safe inside your mother's womb until you were born.

The very model of a modern scientific man
