So Open-minded; the moral eqivalence is brilliant. How any Beheadings and Honour Killings can you attribute to Jeffs?

in response to reader comment: ISLAM IS A "SECT", NOT A RELIGION

Ilene Richman said: ">…Therefore, I state Islam is a sect that follows like sheep as the polygamist sect in Texas where 400 children were resced and 133 women, many underage, were living with one man, Warren Jeffs."

Perfect example of "political correctness". She simply couldn't bring herself to say anything negative about Islamism without raising a Christian straw-man in equivalence. Correcting THAT is the first order of business.

Incidentally, many of those women and children were torn kicking and screaming away from this Loon Jeffs; they made it clear it was their choice, whether they were propagandised, hypnotised or whatever. Polygamy was quite legal in Utah and many other Western states until the middle of the 20th Century.

I personally believe Islamism to ... train their young to die while Ayatollahs, Mullahs & Imams incite and sit back, ruling comfortably while being waited upon. mariana
