"Anecdotal evidence is useless except to liberals, who rely on it because they have zero acquaintance with facts and empirical evidence."
Congratulations, that's the biggest load of projection I've ever seen a human being produce. Well done.
"There are no Christian terrorists or Jewish terrorists or Buddhist terrorists or Hindu terrorists or Confucian terrorists."
99% of all terrorist attacks in Europe are carried out by Christian terrorists. The fact that you don't want that to be true, doesn't make it false.

I rather think that it all depends on your definition of terrorism, which there is little academic consensus on.
There's an argument to be made that acts of self-immolation by Tibetan Buddhist monks (and indeed Greek businessmen, more lately) are a form of terrorism, as the visceral shock and horror of seeing it is (it has been argued) intended to agitate awareness of a political/ religious viewpoint.

If Muhammed was a pedophile, then so is your God. Mary was barely more than a child when she was impregnated by him, ya know.
Isn't there something in that Bible of yours about motes and beams? Maybe you should look into that...
Ah, I see; you have never even opened the Bible! No wonder you don't know about motes and beams, if you don't even know that the Bible is full of violence, torture and murder.
There are terrorists of all kinds of faiths and non-faiths too, but they are rather fewer, as you need a strong conviction, a burning belief that you are right and that others are wrong, to become a terrorist.
We have a current example of an anti-Islamic terrorist in the country next to Sweden. Ever hear about Anders Behring Breivik? He says he acted in self defence, protecting himself against the multicultural liberal society, killing 77 people in one day, many of them teenagers.

I've never heard of Confucian terrorists, but I've heard of all the others. And Sikh ones, too. Shouldn't think there's any Jain terrorists, though.

Allah (The god) does not have an insane peadophile prophet.
A "terrorist" is a person who exists when the democracy doesnt want them to exist.
4/26/2012 4:36:06 AM
Yeah, because Anders Brievik was Muslim. Also, the hundreds of millions of Muslims around the world who have never committed any act of terrorism don't exist at all.
If must be fun to live in your world.

"the cold, hard, indisputable fact that the vast majority of terrorism around the world is carried out by Muslims."
FBI and Europol beg to differ

That argument does work both ways you know, just because you only know rotten apples doesn't mean the whole bunch of them is bad.

"There are no Christian terrorists"
Because murdering doctors doesn't inspire terror in any of his potential patients.

I guess Scott Roeder and Timothy McVeigh were secret Muslims, then?

Anecdotal evidence is bad, and I'm telling you this anecdotally
4/26/2012 5:40:19 AM
The IRA, INLA and IPLA all committed terrorist acts and are/were Catholic.
The UFF, UDA etc. committed terrorist acts and are/were all Protestant.
The Tamil Tigers are/were Hindu and pioneered suicide bombing.
Those are just off the top of my head without even needing to google.

The fact that you know a few Muslims who have killed infidels in the name of Allah and his insane pedophile "prophet" does NOT negate the cold, hard, indisputable fact that the vast majority of terrorism around the world is carried out by Christians.

"There are no Christian terrorists..."
Dr. David Gunn, Dr. John Britton, James Barrett, Shannon Lowney and Lee Ann Nichols, Robert Sanderson, Dr. Barnett Slepian, and Dr. George Tiller (among many others) would probably disagree with you.
"...since 1977 in the United States and Canada, there have been 17 attempted murders, 383 death threats, 153 incidents of assault or battery, and 3 kidnappings committed against abortion providers."
"...since 1977 in the United States and Canada, property crimes committed against abortion providers have included 41 bombings, 173 arsons, 91 attempted bombings or arsons, 619 bomb threats, 1630 incidents of trespassing, 1264 incidents of vandalism, and 100 attacks with butyric acid ("stink bombs")."
"...there have been 655 such bioterror threats made against abortion providers."
And, just to show it's not just anti-abortion, you might want to look into Catholic/Protestant relations in a place called Northern Ireland.

They're only terrorists from your side of the fence. From their point of view you're the hegemonising swarm.
4/26/2012 6:15:28 AM
There are no Christian terrorists
Irish Republican Army
Ku Klux Klan
Army of God
Anyone listed on the "Prisoners for Christ" website
And these are just ones I came up with off the top of my head. I wonder how many I could find if I actually researched it?

Accusing liberals, rather than conservatives, of using anecdotal evidence is one thing (despite anecdotal evidence being a staple of fundamentalist rhetoric everywhere) but to deny the existence of non-Muslims terrorists takes denialism to a whole new level. The twentieth century was probably the golden age of terrorism (in much the same way as the seventeenth was the golden age of piracy) yet I can't think of a single terrorist group which was Muslim then. Let's see, in roughly chronological order. Bomb-throwing anarchists? Nope. The Black Hand? Nope. Pancho Villa's gang? Nope. The Mau-Mau rebellion? Nope. All communist groups before coming to power? Nope. The Unabomber? Nope. The Red Army Faction? Nope. The Weather Underground? Nope. Carlos the Jackal? Nope. The IRA? Nope. The Tamil Tigers? Nope. Timothy McVeigh? Nope. Sure, in the twenty-first century al-Qaeda and its wannabes are the only real terrorists and they're all Muslim, but I was never doubting that Muslim terrorists exist. I was denying Doctor Doom's denial of non-Muslim terrorists. Even here, you don't have to look that hard to find more of them in the twenty-first century. What religion is Anders Behring Breivik again? Or the Lord's Resistance Army, for that matter?
Of course, none of this actually matters. Liberals condemn Muslim terrorists as much as any other terrorists.
And one last thing. How many fundie Christians claim with no evidence except their own word to have once been atheists/Muslims/liberals/Satanists/Illuminati members/vampires/whatever? I've lost count.

There are no Christian terrorists or Jewish terrorists or Buddhist terrorists or Hindu terrorists or Confucian terrorists.
Follow the news much? Google breivik trial.

Anecdotal evidence is useless
Indeed. Must be broken clock day at WLD.
"There are no Christian terrorists or Jewish terrorists or Buddhist terrorists or Hindu terrorists or Confucian terrorists. Why is that, little boy? Could it be because Christianity and Judaism and Buddhism and Hinduism and Confucianism don't have violence, torture and murder as central tenets of their doctrines?"
I don't feel like being nice today. You are a moron. End of story.
4/26/2012 7:49:15 AM
(Buddhists don't seem to be too terroristic, worst I could find was one guy.)
Confucianism is more a philosophy than a religion, and I wasn't expecting to find terrorism committed in the name of such.
4/26/2012 7:56:13 AM
I love Christ.
4/26/2012 7:58:46 AM
"There are no Christian terrorists"
The kind people in both parts of Ireland, London and England in general as well as the entire population of Norway would like a word....

Also, I don't know about "central tenet" but the Bible does have an awful lot of allegedly God-sanctioned violence and murder. Maybe you should actually read it before you start talking about it.
