    My prayers goes to all of RJs, who are currently living in France for the most heinous attacks. As well as to the french people currently who are suffering for lost love one's to this senseless and cowardly act of murder.icon_cry.gif

    I hope the perpetrators are brought to justice swiftly. This represents a major escalation of radicalization that we have seen.

    How many of you are planning to go out and buy a Prius to combat Islamic terrorism?

    Some douchey Hebdo cartoonist says we should stop praying for Paris, because it's religion.

    Include the killed people in Beirut in your prayers along with the French.

    Clearly you haven't been paying attention. Our most brilliant President we have ever had Barack Hussein Obama stated just hours before the attack that he has "ISIS contained" and that they are "not strengthening."


    They have been largely contained and are being hit hard on the ground in Syria and Iraq. Why do you suppose they are now lashing out with terrorist attacks against soft targets in those countries whose air forces are hitting them with airstrikes?

    All the support message we've got from people praying for us is heart warming

    Yet you should understand that in here, a majority of people are not religious. It's a common formula to offer prayer in time of grieving... in USA, but definitely not the case in France. Cultural bias.

    To tell people who have no religious feeling that you will pray for them while they are grieving because of the actions of religious fanatics is a severe lack of tact.

    I had lot of messages like that. They made me smile because I understand the cultural bias and a good intentions. Yet I wish the formula didn't imply that I'm supposed to have a minimal level of belief in god, that I don't have.

    Remarkable how even a simple post asking us to spare a though for the French people at this time brings the usual right-wing fuckwits crawling out of the woodwork with their sarcastic/ill-informed one-liners.

    They already know they've lost and that they're going to hell so they probably figure why feign holding onto what might be left of their dignity when really there's nothing left for them to lose. Sun Tzu called it fighting with the courage of despair, while another great philosopher called it...

    Hi Minox. Long time no see. Sorry for you and yours. Such a terrible thing.

    I combined some gifs for another thread, reposting here for you:

    Think of it not as bias but as metaphor.

    Yes, I already know this. I'm unimpressed with you and your countrymen.

    Don't tell me what to do, think, or say.

    It's an expression of commiseration from the heart, not a call to prayer from a minaret.

    Then they don't have to listen.

    Face it, France sucks - and that on purpose. Starting more than a century ago, the French have proudly embraced national decline as a noble project.

    Well, except when they are steaming off with guns unsheathed to the Ivory Coast to preserve some imperialistic pretensions of yesteryear, or expelling the gypsies (as they did not so long ago), or bombing Syria as they are doing right now. Hmmm, there may yet be hope for France after all... Dear Frogs: You don't have to suck.

    There are white Liberals in the USA who want the same thing for us. Fuck that.

    France supposedly shut its borders after this incident. I guess it can't hurt, however too-little-too-late it may be.

    They don't want prayers, but they'll turn off the lights at the Eiffel Tower for symbolism's sake.

    Obama is making a statement right now from the G20 in Turkey and stated that Yemeni Al Quaeda Terrorists are still a threat. So why release them from GITMO???

    Yeah, nice picture. A cartoon squiggle of the Eiffel Tower is sure to send these savages running in fear.

    After the Hebdo attacks (which killed a handful of people), millions of cloying swishes "fought back" with hashtags. Now these fucks killed almost ten times as many as they did at Hebdo. Good work, idiots.


    NOTE TO CLOWN PRINCE JOHN OLIVER: France just bombed ISIS HQ, and I'm pretty sure it wasn't with copies of Proust.

    As you seem unable to recognize mourning the innocent victims of a terrorist attack, can we take it you'll go and take a piss on the 9/11 Memorial next time you're in NYC? In any case, why would I give a shit what another "here today gone tomorrow" RJ right-wing profile thinks?

    Buy it or not - it happens to be true. Goes back to 1789, when the church was seen as one of the great evils in the french social order. The small number of Jews (remember, most got sent off to Auschwitz and similar places during the war) tend to be more religious than those of christian background. I don't know about the muslim population (estimated to be at most about 7.5% of the population).

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_France

    "According to the Eurobarometer Poll conducted in 2010,[4] 27% of French citizens responded that "they believe there is a God", 33% answered that "they believe there is some sort of spirit or life force", and 40% answered that "they do not believe there is any sort of spirit, God, or life force". This makes France one of the more secular countries in the world"

    Less than one in three french believe in god, including the muslims

    On big difference I observe around here in what's the 11th most conservative county in the country (haven't voted for a democrat for president since 1932) is that we're quite secular, and you hear/see very little about religion around here.

    The big three are Presbyterian, Methodist and Catholic. Very very few southern Baptists. Go south of Columbus and things change though.

    Young adults probably run in about the same range with maybe 25-30% being religious except for the rapidly growing muslin community. They are not only very knowledgeable about their religion, but follow it closely, and are quite combative about it.

    I don't hear too much disparagement about Christianity, but sure do when the topic of Jews comes up.

    Parents were immigrants but the kids were born here for the most part. This is the only instance and only religion where the kids appear to be far more religious than the parents.
