Quote# 70228

[re: bible passages on rifles]

My wife made a good observation yesterday when we were talking about this story, and that is, 'hey, wait a minute, the Taliban and the extremists, what is it they say just before they blow themselves up or kill somebody, they say Allahu Akbar.' If anybody's making this a religious thing, they started it.

I'm pretty sure people were being killed in the name of God long before Islam even existed.

We're supposed to be better than the terrorists, Steve.

Your wife's an idiot, and so are you.

I learned at an early age never to whine "But he started it!" because Mum would trump it with "Well I'm finishing it."

Oh, trust me; it's actually a lot more complicated than "they started it". It's got roots in the Cold War, after all.

Allahu Akhbar means "Praise God" or "God is great". Anyone killing in the name of their God will say the same thing.

And by this point it really doesn't matter who started it. Too many people have died in the name of both Gods and both governments.

I was going to write "Your wife is an idiot and you are too!" but EonBlueTriad beat me to it.

So your wife is comparing U.S. soldiers to the Taliban and other Islamists? Given the number of Evangelicals apparently now in the U.S. Army, they might not be that dissimilar.

Always try to set a good example. Always.

Because nothing proves your righteousness like copying the qualities of those you deem wrong.

True, we want to use the Taliban as role models.

You let your wife "tell" you something? What kind of Christian husband are you?

It doesn't matter if they "started it" or not, we shouldn't be sinking to their level.

NO, REALLY?

2/8/2010 11:10:01 PM

aaa

We are not supposed to go to their level, you stupid fuck. All you will do is radicalize the locals.

I bet you think your wife is beautiful, too.

You learned nothing from the elementary school playground years.

And you're giving them the holy war they want. What are you, five? Grow the fuck up.

I thought we started America so we could get away from other people's bullshit.

You can't seriously believe that!?!?

Wow. You're really fucking ignorant of history, aren't you?

Well, it is Fox so I guess the playground mentality is to be expected.

You know, most kids by the age of 10 or so [sometimes even earlier] learn that this is not a good argument.

Have fun asshole. I hope someone offs you off real good. In fact I hope they kill your children too. Your unfit to live. Darwin will win.

We should always bring school-playground mentality into international affairs and wars. Definately a good idea.

2/9/2010 1:43:38 AM



The difference is that you are trying very very hard NOT to give the impression that you are fighting a holy war.

Bible passages on rifles do not help.

Yeah I hope you know the Taliban recruits locals by convincing them that the USA is waging a holy war on Islam rather than trying to help them. Having Christian bible passages on the guns is not exactly convincing them that we aren't out to destroy Islam.

Fuck. My students are smarter than that and they're seven years old.

Also, Mrs Doocy....how dare you have an opinion your husband hasn't fed you first? You're a terrible Christian.
