David F MayerYes, taunting and insulting them is a great way to convertSun Jun 24, 2012 5:58pm220.127.116.11them --- NOT. How goddamned stupid can these idiots be?
The way to convert Muslims to Christianity is to convince them that Christianity is a more gentle, more loving, more humane, more decent religion than Islam. Insulting and taunting them is clearly counterproductive of the conversion effort. It convinces them that Christians (at least THESE PARTICULAR Christians) are insensitive, boorish, obnoxious cretins. Hardly an enticing prospect.

- My comment was not intended Gateway, Sat Jun 23 8:44pmfor patriotic bravado but for love and appreciation of a country that has offered a good life. Loser, hardly. How often do you kick your parents in the ass for birthing you in this country?
- Again, I disagree greenman, Sun Jun 24 2:43pmPatriotic types are just like religious fanatics; their way is THE way, they're "right" and you're "wrong," and you can't argue with them. F--- off.
- Well, my love and appreciation Gateway, Sun Jun 24 3:56pmfor this country I suppose, can be called patriotic but that was not my intention, I cant argue that point. I am not nor have I ever considered myself to be a fanatic. Your labeling me a fanatic is... more

- I wish more moderate Christians... Truthteller, Fri Jun 22 2:26pmwould raise an outcry against this sort of bigotry and hatred, but they never seem to. Doesn't make them a whole lot better than these louts.
- Re: I wish more moderate Christians... yome, Sun Jun 24 12:59amthey probably do but we hardly ever here the good news stories that happen around the world, it seems we only hear the bad news. i guess the bad sells better. hope alls well with you and your's.
- The real problem with Christian crazies ChristopherBlackwell, Fri Jun 22 4:50pmTruthteller, Is that the moderate and liberalChristians never stand up against them and never have all through Christian history. As they saw all it takes for evil to win,is for good people to do... more
