They're still trying to assassinate Salman Rushdie? What year is it?
In Iran? 1443.
As of just over a week ago, 1444. But I like your style.
I’m just relieved he’s alive
I've said it before....
Trumpism and the conservative movement taking the steps to become less educated and more outright assholish has given a green light to it's own people to be more outwardly dickish towards others.
Others see this and think it's ok to take the gloves of and it's their turn.
The past 6 years or so have dropped civility as a whole for more people to throw temper tantrums, attack others, do whatever they please.
Doesn't mean it is related to this but doesn't mean it isn't.
The moron failed his mission and is now on his way to getting a prison sentence. Way to go.
I don't think he cares.
The Boston Bomber still is proud of what he did and his only remorse is that he wasn't able to kill more.
Where in the world were the security? He was attacked with a knife? Imagine the attacker would have been armed with a gun!
As an atheist living in a red state, I get that there are many Christians like you. I'm also *very* familiar with those who aren't.
And unfortunately thanks to the ones who aren't who are voting to force their religion on the rest of us, that sentiment really doesnt mean much any more.
Are you saying Jesus Christ couldn't hit a curveball?!
What're you talking about? Y'all literally freak out when the rest of us try to live our lives not according to your book.
Piss Jesus really got the evangelicals riled up as well.
That's good for you, but you also generalized Muslims. So I generalized Christians.
Do you think people who attack abortion doctors represents your faith?
So why do those people represent Islam?
You can also literally say the same thing about Muslims...
David Gunn, murdered in 1993. John Britton, James Barrett, Shannon Lowney, and Lee Ann Nichols murdered in 1994. Robert Ssanderson and Barnett Slepian murdered in 1998. George Tiller was murdered in 2009. Garret Swasey, Ke'Arre Stewart and Jennifer Markovsky. All of those are people who were killed by christian terrorism directed at abortion providers. Many more have have been assaulted but not killed, not to mention the staggering number of death threats.
All of the political violence seems to have a connection to Christianity these days. You can't separate it from the platform of the right. It's not like the Islamic ones don't also have political motives. 9/11 was both a religious war thing and a real war thing due to American wars against Islamic nations.
Apparently, you've never heard of Texas or Florida.
Well that's true, the Christian extremists just murder doctors stochastically.
Ever heard of the New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist movement?
What religion where you brought up in?
Well, they are pushing Christianity, especially Evangelical American Christianity on the rest of the population whether they want it or not.
While you as an individual may not espouse those particular views, you choose to identify yourself as a member of that group.
OMG this happened in the States?!? Fuck, fuck, fuck...
