I say there isn't enough Islamophobia. Especially when Mattel is programming dolls to convert our little girls!!11!!

Sorry, bot, but this one trips my BS detector.

There's no reason to believe that CAIR is an honest organization.

There's no reason to believe that you have to believe CAIR to acknowledge the attacks on Mosques and the islamaphobia that's displayed by elected officials.

I do not like blog promotion bots. Especially when said blog has no interest in any type of objectivity.

Nice word soup. Needs salt.

No doubt attacks on Muslims are a problem, but Fundamentalist Islam poses a MUCH bigger problem.

People should be respected, but I don't really see any reason to give unconditional respect to Islam (or any religion for that matter).

Can't say I understand the downding on my previous comment. The bigotry expressed by so-called "Islamophobes" (what a silly word) is bad, and the bigotry expressed by Fundamentalist Muslims is just as bad, and much more widespread across the world. This is clear as day to anyone paying attention.

It's the two big 'buts' in there. Why can't you say people deserve respect PERIOD.? Since you feel the need to chime in on a subject you could have left alone....

I chose not to leave them alone. Sorry, you're not the arbiter of what I should "leave alone". 'Chiming in' on subjects is what the internet is for.

Fundamentalist Christianity is a far bigger threat to this country than fundamentalist Islam.

Easily. I worry much more about laws being done in the name of Christianity in this country than laws being done in the name of Islam. We have one, count it one Muslim representative in Congress and I wouldn't call Keith Ellison an ally of fundamentalist Islam.

I don't agree. It is Radical Islam that carries out terrorist attacks and plants IEDs. Violence among fundamentalist Christians is far rarer and far less widely accepted within that community.

Me neither, which is why I downding Aigle every chance I get. As far as I'm concerned, he/she/it is a spam bot.

I'm not saying you should leave them alone. I'm saying if you choose to make a comment I don't like, I'm not going to leave it alone either.

Have another one.
