you hatred has closed your mind. I would answer your question, and tried to, but there's no way to even communicate the idea. What's the Christian word for a Christian is who is filled with bloodlust, and is fearful and judgment against all around him? I would say a non-Christian, but you see, that's not a concept that is there. Your ... does nothing but prove you know little of the message of Jesus. That the message of the Good Samaritan is utterly lost on you. That our neighbor is the other, despite nationality, faith or tribe. Jesus said, love your enemy and walk a mile in their shoes. Well, you're clearly not following his teachings. So, I don't know what to tell you. I'm not lying, I'm earnest, and I'm not a sophist, but either you are, or the people you get your information from are. You know Spencer was quoted and cited by Anders Breivik 162 times--we shall know you by your fruits.

Oh yeah, the Muslim are so irrational and angry. Their just war policy is; if you invade their lands, sew tumult, chaos and disruption. If you refuse to abide by your treaties, allow them to practice their faith and live their lives; if you fight them, or refuse to negotiate in good faith, then they can fight you--they "can fight and kill you where they find you" but if you ask for a truce, or are not fighting, "they have no cause whereby to fight you" Ask yourself, how can they be fighting us there, and be guilty of anything? If the Canadians came here to oust Obama and install a GOP regime, I guarantee you that right leaning rednecks would shoot at the Canadians. You gonna let a Canadian cop run checks in your local intersection? You're telling me you wouldn't pepper those guys with shotgun shells--hell that would hurt anyone, but it would sure make a lot of noise on their armor.

I don't know what you believe, but clearly, you don't ascribe to the Golden Rule. We can identify depredations left and right. We have a drone program where we not only kill suspected insurgents, or anyone of fighting age, we also kill those who come to render aid. We do it a lot. Not a faction, not a few outliers, but that's gov't policy.
