    Even the North Korean authorities are lately easing up on people whose hairstyles don't necessarily conform to the socialist lifestyle.

    How can any rational person maintain that Islam is anything other than a barbaric religion? Not that all other religions are not equally ridiculous, but the muslims are acting like the Catholics did 400 years ago. If only we could wall them all off on on one of the continents and not let them out for 400 years until they learned how to be civilized humans. They are certainly the most bloodthirsty of any religion today.

    I don't recall Catholics stoning people to death for the way they dressed / cut their hair for the last 1000 years at the very least. Not to mention that the Protestans were at least as cruel and murderous back in the 16th and 17th century as the Catholics. You are repeating Protestant propaganda and to add insult to the injury, do so under a nickname of an eminent historian.

    Right... Because it's not like gay kids aren't killed in the US by Christian on a fucking daily basis.

    Beyond that, I'm so glad we bankrupted the country, kills hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and thousands of US servicemen and woman to "free" Iraq. icon_rolleyes.gif

    The Islamic is like Europe 400 years ago. At that time, Europe was coming out of its Dark and Medieval Ages and entering an age of reason. A thousand years before that the germanic tribes invaded Europe and brought down the western Roman Empire. Western Europe, so shaken, dumped science and rationality, and depended solely on faith. It took a thousand years for the Renaissance to bring reason back to Europe.

    A thousand years ago from today, the Seljuk Turks invaded the Islamic world. And, although the Turks didnt bring the Islamic civilization down like the german tribes, they did shake the culture to its foundations. The Islamic world turned away from all rationality and looked solely to faith, just as Europe had done.

    Now, a thousand years later, the Islamic world is just coming out of its "Middle Ages." They are now going thru the same religious vs secular struggles that Europe did 400 years ago. Some in the Islamic world want to live in a more modern world and some still want to live in a world entirely governed by faith. That's what we are witnessing now.

    NO, not because of haircuts that I know of - they just tortured and burned to death thousands of people in the inquisition, and put groups of people - usually families- with their hands tied, in cages, and threw the cages into rivers, so they could watch them drown. That was much more civilized, I am sure.

    Exactly right!
    What a wonderful outcome from the American lives sacrificed for this country -- Iraq is even worse now than it was before we invaded it. At least it was marginally civilized and connected to the modern world prior to us "saving" it from Saddam Hussein.
    A special shout-out to George Bush for his campaign of lies to trick the US into that pointless war.

    Gay kids may be killed all the time in the US, but such killing is not the policy of any organized sect of the Christian or Jewish faith or any governental body in the US.

    Islam is not an overly barbaric religion in and of itself. It depends on who is interpreting it.

    This is disgusting though......very sad.

    What an absurd comparison, Christian. Even the most staunch anti-gay Christian would not condone such a barbaric horrible fate for someone like that. The Iraqis should be ashamed of these horrendous acts.

    This is not Islam. Beware of equating religion with the actions of those who profess to be adherents, for at times, the lines of identity may blur. Making a critical distinction is very important nowadays lest we oversimplify and keep playing the blame game.

    This is one example of result of evil atrocities committed by evil people who are mere cowards. Whether or not under they profess a religion, they will find something, something to hide under, some cover by which to justify their evil ways, and by doing so, desecrate, demean and destroy the public recognition of "good" in that religion in the process. Evil twists good, and tries to destroy what is good.

    Islam came to the middle east over 1000 years ago. Think of the movie lord of the rings, the people at that time were barbarians, they killed and rapped women. The teachings were for that time (including the punishments) but todays Muslims (fanatics) have taken those teachings and interrupted them and made them suit their own needs. You may look at Christians too and a true follower of Christ should not kill another person, then why do we send soldiers wearing the corss on their chest to kill others? Religion in itself is not bad it is how people have changed it from its origin.

    If whatever gov't you have decides that religion belongs in the White House, given that your country has freedom of religion, you can expect to see Islam firmly entrenched in it. You can't cherry pick.

    Religion is bad. It professes to give someone the ultimate truth. Yet no one can check it. Adherents become emboldened think they have God's message.

    We should not have to live in fear of any religion. Be peaceful or be gone!
