Susan, how about we start where we agree. The status quo is simply not good enough, so how does this sound to get us from where we are to where we need to be:

Not take the saints who suffered under the crescent moon for granted. Today is the Sunday of the Samaritan Woman, and a Coptic Christian came and visited a church I help out at. He didn't mince words as to what stampeded out of Arabia. Anyway, when you take a look at all the Coptic saints, as well as those who identify with Alexandria, Antioch, Jerusalem, Constantinople and Rome - all who frankly didn't have coming what those whose emblem is the crescent moon, what they were dishing out; their blood and other forms of torture are on the hands of those who claimed they were doing the will of Allah or Muhammed.

Are you in favour of accepting the surrender of those countries whose populations are at least 50%, and then placing preparatory regimes in those places until they are ready to treat people as people, without distinction. For, there is a story. A church was being built in Egypt, and the day before it was consecrated by a bishop, the word came to congregation that the wrong permits were issued.
