I believe you are the ranter. Did it occur to you, that the reason that I don't remember the articles, etc about Bush as the anti Christ, is because I don't run with the crowd you think that I do. I know there were issues about George W. Bush's religion, but believe it or not what I heard at the time was more favorable. I wasn't on the net at the time and no one showed me an email about the things that you said.

I didn't use Bush or Romney as an example because I thought there was more ruckus about JFK , and I know that there has been a lot of underground anti-Semitism. I lived in the Bible belt when Kennedy ran. The debate that I saw about Romney, on the net, was more of a theological one than a personal attack; whether Mormons could be considered Christians. It seemed that more people on the right were concerned about that. I really curious to know why I piss you off so much. Is it because I am one of the few that didn't like this article, because you certainly do not know any thing about me. I also would not be the first person to be wrong either. Daniel Pipes may have qualified his post, but I thought he still didn't have enough facts to write what he did. I am speaking for myself.

It is very interesting how many instant experts we have on Islam now. When you state your information, it would be preferable if you would cite your sources. Are you of the generation that thinks research is Googling and reading blogs and this is what I should do, to verify what you have said or to find an authority.
