Syed,

Always a pleasure to hear from a man who chooses to live in the world's largest democracy.

Please give me examples of people who quote Deuteronomy to explain and justify why they fly planes full of ordinary people into buildings full of ordinary people. Or how Deuteronomy forces them to blow up subways and buses full of ordinary people. Don't forget to include any recent examples of people's claims that Deuteronomy instructed them to cut ordinary peoples heads off in front of video cameras (those videos are just so much better than Fitna, aren't they?) or blow up marketplaces filled with women and children in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

I'll be interested to read the examples you provide.

What does Deuteronomy have to say about how to go about properly selecting a name for a classroom teddy bear?

Been to Iran lately?
