the rest of my response to Gary Fouse....

"We are the most generous nation on earth"....

America may be a generous nation in the amount of money we give, but give me an example where has America has given without getting something in return. Generous is only when you give something without expecting something to be given to you. It's not the generosity that isn't appreciated...it's when we put our nose into their business and INVADE THEIR COUNTRY that they don't appreciate our "generosity".

As for Chavez vs. Rushdie: Are you saying that one person calling for the killing of someone is more severe than someone else calling for the killing of someone? OH! That's right...a CHRISTIAN called for the killing of Chavez and a MUSLIM called for the killing of Rushdie. How hypocritical is that?! And by the way...don't stop with Rushdie. Please...expand on your "etc". You've already lost all credibility for any further argument with your little "pretty mild" comment. LOL

The reason most people don't speak up is because people like YOU don't listen. You will only listen if the person talking is a white, conservative Christian. If you could possibly make one point that you didn't hear by listening to media, then please make it. I'm tired of listening to the same responses again and again. "America is great, Muslim are bad...nobody appreciates us!".
