(Danish/American said: That sort of thing doens't happen in civilized society...people who become mezmerised by some slick talking self proclaimed messenger of God.)

My reply: Well, that depends what you call a 'civilised society'. For you, the Arab societies are not civilised, but for us the western people who do not wash themselves after using toilet, who allow homosexuality like animals, who go naked in front of public, who kiss, hug or do indecent intimate things in public (like those 4-footed animals that bark) are not civilised persons. Oh, can somebody please bring me a bucket..

(You said: Anyone can follow some charismatic jerk and kill innocent people, but it takes someone with guts to stand up and say 'This is wrong..I won't do it'. Better to die standing on your feet than on your knees.)

My reply: Oh, charismatic jerk! Then what are you, my dear?? Did any Muslim ever rediculed your puppet gods?

Since you're insulting our religion, let me just tell you that it made me laugh when you described your gods (Mar 30, 2006 ): "I have on my altar pagan dieties whom I direct my prayers, my respect and my honor to. My dieties are Freyja, Frigg, Woden and Thor for the most part. Yes, the gods/goddesses of my ancestors from Scandinavia. Woden (most people refer to him as Odin) is the All Father. Freyja, goddess of the Valkyries..a warrior goddess only matched in courage by Thor, goddess of sex and love, prosperity among others. Frigg is the wife of Woden the goddess of marriage and family, used to envoke blessings on new born children and to aid in childbirth, a goddess of any who have family and children..she is a protector of women. Thor is the god of the common man.. a protector as well, a warrior who was one of the most worshipped gods during the time of the vikings. "

You're praying or playing with dolls, by the way? Did we insult your puppets? Those are ancient gods you said? Nowadays do you also worship modern deities like Barbie-god, or Bratz-god? They're not only innocent but are also cool. Go them put them on your altar and worship them if you're not already doing that....

I had always been polite with all the participants here. But Danish/American or whoever you are, YOU ASKED FOR THIS.
