Yes. No. He does.

He actually made a thread in which the title was that website. Just is another example of the conservative closed-minded christian he is. He hears something and thinks, "OMG ITS TRUE, THEY TOLD ME SO!!" then runs around spreading the website's hate message.

I bet he is a tea party'er.

I wish I had the mental concentration to create a site with all of the non-Islamic terrorist events. Sadly, I do not.

It wouldn't surprise me if the figure is true if you consider it globally to be honest. I don't see how stating a fact can be offensive...

My God, I just supported Wardogg

The fact may be true, but the fact that they are Muslims doesn't make them terrorists. The avatar doesn't specifically say that, but you know that's what he believes.

True, but then it's WD's attitude to Muslims you have a problem with, not his avatar.

Actually, you know what, the avatar does in a way explicitly state that. The phrase "Religion of peace" is meant to be ironic, IE Islam is not peaceful is what he is inferring from the statistic.

No, but...

How can I put this?

Though many of the violent people today tend to be Islamic, the followers of Islam are not necessarily violent. The phrase "Religion of Peace" implies that because of Islam, Muslims are violent, when that is not the case. Muslims are violent for other reasons, not Islam.

I would dispute that. While it might be aggravations besides religion which drive a person to hate, religion, particularly Islam in the Middle East, provides a fertile bed of justification and righteous indignation. Sam Harris puts the case against Islam very convincingly in 'The End of Faith' in 'The Problem with Islam' including a statistic where over 80% of those asked in Lebanon whether suicide bombing in defence of Islam was justified agreed that it was.

If I was asked to imagine a perfect deity, I would never invent one that suffers from a multiple personality disorder. Christians get points for originality there.

No they don't.  How long did it take before the great scientists of the Renaissance were accepted and people changed?

Yeah, but I still don't think it's believing in a magic skydaddy that makes them violent. Take the Westboro Baptist Church for example. They believe in Christianity, yet there are many Christians who don't act like they do. Likewise there are many Muslims that aren't violent, leading me to believe that its not the actual religion but rather one's interpretation of it, which could change greatly from person to person.

Sure, but take that religion away and you get rid of their justification for suicide bombs, oppressing women etc

I will admit, though, that Islam may be more susceptible to violent acts than other religions because of the fundamentalism associated with it, whereas Christians don't tend to take the violent parts of the Bible seriously, and sometimes completely ignore them.

Nah, I believe the greater cause of the terrorist acts are politically driven. I don't really think any Muslim care deep down about killing infidels. The terrorists care about making political statements, not religious ones.
