Claire says: "The problem with Islam is that it is still brutal. Belief is utlimately deadly. ..wherever Islam goes, it conquers. Everywhere it goes eventually falls to Islam -- no exceptions so far. That's one reason people need to repeal laws that give advantages to religions. It comes into the U.S. with tax exempt status and isn't just a religion. It imtimidates leaders into not fighting it out of fear."

So well said! I couldn't agree with you more. Islam is a socio-political movement, an instrument of Arab expansionsim, garbed as a "religion". It is an an imperialistic strategy. Everywhere the "religion" goes, the customs, food, dress, language, laws follow right behind. To be a good Moslem, must you dress and eat like an Arab too? Islam prefers to conquer peacefully, naturally (it's just easier that way), but it does not hesitate to spill blood when that becomes necessary, and that is all authorized in the name of religion.

I further agree with your two previous paragraphs about the dangers presented by extremist Christian sects which take the Bible literally, word-for-word; and also your comments about the unforseen problems that modern medicine is unwittingly creating for us -- not only in presevring the lives of people with low intelligence who can be easily manipulated, but who will be burdens on society (in many other ways) for their entire lives. Only a very wealthy society can indulge in that degree of altruism; but can we count on always being able to afford that luxury?
