I'm not a spambot
So, Muslims aren't actual people now? You're an asshole.

I know this may be hard to believe, but despite what you may have been taught, those who have different beliefs from you are people too. I know, shocking, right?
2/19/2010 12:14:01 AM
Wow. Just, wow.
You're an asshole. Seriously.

No, your expected to treat Muslims like, you know, actual people. Because that's what they are! You treat Muslims the same way you treat everybody else -- you treat them like your fellow human beings. How can people not get this?
2/19/2010 12:20:08 AM
Yes because Muslims are people to.
2/19/2010 12:50:10 AM
Nicer? No. Just the same as everyone else.
2/19/2010 1:21:36 AM
Since you don't consider them people, I don't think you're in a position of judging how to treat them.

No, you are expected to treat them as nicely as everyone else.
It might come as a shock to you, but Muslims are actual people. They come in all different shapes, sizes and colors, just as Christians do.
I have three very dear friends who are Muslims, I do treat them nicer than I treat an unfamiliar person in the street.
Not because they are Muslims, but because they are wonderful people and my friends.

Newsflash, you bigot: Muslims are actual people.
2/19/2010 1:55:37 AM
That's what your God requires of you.
2/19/2010 3:12:22 AM
Congratulations, you're an ass.
2/19/2010 3:45:15 AM
No, you are expected to treat them decently, no better and no worse than anyone else.
Edit: Because they are people, I mean.

First liberals were dehumanized, now Muslims. And yet, they consider a clump of cells to be human. Sick.
2/19/2010 4:30:02 AM
Well for being a fucking cunt, I'm not going to treat you like a person either.
2/19/2010 4:43:56 AM
Apparently whether or not one is human depends on religion.
And no, we're expected to be as nice to muslims as to other people.

Are we really expected to be nicer to Christiansthan to actual people?

So...Muslims aren't "actual people"?
You're a bigot.
2/19/2010 7:00:16 AM
I'd treat a friendly muslim like a real person over this asshole anyday!
2/19/2010 7:05:40 AM
So...Muslims aren't actual people, but microscopic embryos are?
2/19/2010 7:09:29 AM
Muslims ARE actual people.
2/19/2010 7:17:41 AM
Not nicer, just treat them the same. Try pretending that your religion hasn't made you batshit insane enough to desire the death, destruction and oppression of anyone who doesn't believe the exact same way that you do and go from there.
Yes, it will hurt at first, but if you'd bother to crack dat bibble open once in awhile you'd see it's actually the only thing Jesus wants from you.

I think "Arsehole Always" suits you better

"Are we really expected to be nicer to Muslims than to actual people?"
Leviticus 19:18: 'Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself.'
Leviticus 19:34: 'But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.'
Luke 10:25-28: 'And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.'
...I think that's a yes.

Here's what you need to do Arthur:
Step 1: Realize Muslims are people.
Step 2: Be nice to people.
Sadly, I don't see you getting past step one.
