    So, is this posted just because you want to divert attention from what happened in France?

    I'm just saying, the article you posted is from FEBRUARY 14, 2014. A year ago... How is this relevant? At least post a recent article...

    It's very relevant. It's to show that a religion is only as noble or as nasty as its followers.

    No.

    I know you're having trouble with the gun analogy, so Bill suggested I tell you to compare religion to a car. Depending on who is driving and in what emotional state they're in, they'll either give you a lift or flatten you into bloody pulp.

    Which is irrelevant, since I did not mention the word Muslim in my post on this topic, regardless of my personal position (as expressed in other topics on this forum)... why don't we bring up articles about the Crusades, while we are at it. And the murder of Jesus. That should be fun and relevant.

    Erm, the link you dismissed as being a year ago doesn't tell the full story, and no you won't get it from FOX. Especially not FOX.
    It is ongoing, and recently the tide turned and it's Muslims striking back at Christians there with violence. Keep up.

    Of course it does not tell the whole story. It's from a year ago. I live under no delusions that on February 15th, 2014 - everything stopped and peace reigned. Why not post a current article that talks about the turning of the tide? That's because the OP has an agenda and is misleading.

    How did FOX get involved? And what does the tide turning have anything to do with the CONTENT of what I said?

    OK, good answer.

    Let me tell you something. We all have agendas. You, me, OP, everyone. You can SAY you don't, but you do. I can say I don't, but I do.

    My opinion differs from yours, and we try to sway others towards our own opinion. That's agenda.

    Please do actually respond with relevance, unlike your previous two times. Thanks.
