Maurader said. . . . . I too am glad that the COO of the company shot the SOB before he could kill another innocent lady. But I'm distressed that said SOB still breathes our oxygen. It seems that the gentleman who rescued the injured lady should carry a sidearm of a larger caliber. Just my opinion. ______________________ In reports I've seen the off duty deputy used his service rifle. The .223 that the COO used is & never has been meant for up close use Maurader. Even hollow point rounds won't expand properly up close. They just punch through. Since he likely fell back on his training he shot center mass which resulted in no expansion of the rounds hence the reason that the killer is still breathing.

no they are not Patrick. The politicians you mentioned are no more than sheeple or well trained parrots spouting the accepted line.

Whitebeard said. . . . Amy: Sorry to be so late in responding to you, and I'll have to respectfully disagree about one point: that "logic, reason, and evidence" would suffice to counteract the cancerous effects of Islam. Also, I see that you refer to first Amendment rights re banning instruction in Islam in prisons. But, again, if Islam is redefined...if it is not given the legal status of a "religion," there is no violation of that right. I maintain that it is NOT a religion as our Founding Fathers understood the word. ____________________ Not a problem on the response time my friend. Now as to the points you brought up. . . . I'll admit that the lion's share of adherents to Islam would not be reached by logic, reason, & evidence. That's the nature of faith in some cases. As things stand Islam is a recognized religion, do we really want to let bureaucrats define what is & what is not a religion or Faith? Now I'll admit that I've got a unique insight to this one since it took the bureaucrats at the VA 10 + years to "recognize" Wicca & my Faith enough to allow the circled star & the Hammer to be included in "accepted" symbols of Faith for headstones of veterans. I am seriously uncomfortable with any government ruling on what is "acceptable" as a religion or Faith so long as that belief system recognizes the unalienable rights our Creator gifted unto us. Since not all Muslims advocate conversion by force then we have to give them the benefit of the doubt I'd think. Let them practice their religion within their own nations as they wish but make it clear that within our lands they ___MUST___ conform to our laws, standards, & morals. If they refuse then drop the hammer on them so hard they'll think that it came from the heavens. Monitor how the religion is taught & practiced in prison & in the military with strictly spelled out dos & don'ts. Again for any who refuse to stay within the rules the hammer falls.

That's what the prison systems do for my Faith & generic Wiccan Faiths.

What you have to understand is the Muslim mindset as reflected in their languages. "Peace" is not one word with one concept to them. At least three different concepts are contained within the English word "peace" to a follower of Islam. Peace within ones-self & soul by following the dictates of Allah. Peace between the person & Allah, Peace in a world under Allah's rule. So, by their "religion", Islam is a religion of "peace". . . . Just not as we define the word.
