Re: Take the Anti-Piracy Pledge

True, we no longer have the inquisition, witch burnings, or lynchings...well maybe a lynching now and again...or defiling muslims, urinsting in their dead bodies and posting video of it, but so what? That doesnt count, Right?

I in no way support any of this, by us or by them, but don't make such a pretense of christian innocence.

You can say well those are just bad examples of Christians, but that's all we have with Islam too, some of them are bad examples of the their faith.

To put it quite blankly, don't make this a holy war. That's just an excuse.

So you REALLY don't understand the difference between blowing up thousands of innocent civilians or cutting off the heads of live, innocent, civilians, and urinating on an already dead soldier who was recently doing his best to kill you and your friends? I personally don't get what's the big thrill out of urinating on a dead body, no matter who it is, and certainly wouldn't even try to justify it, but when you try to equate that with intentionally and brutally murdering noncombatants, all you do is demonstrate that you're not thinking very logically.
