Quoting khnsa: "we most certainly do not 'set the world ablaze' as you say. to say politely, you're talking rubbish. You have no facts to back up what your trying to prove."


Um...no. I'm pretty sure that the rioting, burning, and protesting are what they were referring to...yeah, I think that's probably it. It's going on RIGHT NOW! And what proof is needed? Got to CNN or any other half-way dependable news agency for live video.

Finally, why? Why do we have to respect you? You can't tell me what to do. You can't convince me to respect anyone who doesn't seem to have a good grasp of the facts. And as for respecting your religion....I don't respect anyone's religion. They're all fair game.

Besides, respect must be earned. Not demanded.
Submitting....
