What's wrong with these people?
It's stories like this that make me wake up every day and praise God that I live in a country that lets me be an atheist.
They are such a peaceful people them Muslims.
Haha that line is a classic.
Yup cos the KKK represent all christians don't they.
The KKK are about dead in the water and don't rule a country, state, city, or suburb.
My wife's cousin is in Afghanistan. I don’t think he should be asked to risk his life to establish this type of government and put these kinds of people in power. It is very upsetting but not unexpected.
I just hope we decide to cut and run soon. Enough already.
Knewnan - word up!
Arn't these the same people that cut hands off for stealing? Or am I just ethno-illiterate?
We should have a no politics and no religion rule on this board! haha
I try to treat this board like I do my job. Politics, Religion and Sex are no-gos.
Well, now we know that you're not a politician, a priest, or a prostitute.
For the record, when I said "these people," I meant anyone who believes that a convert should be put to death. I did not mean all Muslims.
Why is that line a classic? There is freedom of religion in the U.S. Things are far from perfect in the U.S., but compared to Afghanistan, it's utopia.
Isn't that what a whatever thread is for?
We best not open the old CAN O WORMS, get my drift. Or there could be no end in sight, just like Bush's WAR - OOOOOPS !
Don't be messin with mine!

No you're right.
Its just that drama tends to bleed over into other areas and I like the vibe here. I'd just assume folks not be guning for one another across the boards.
If I want to get the urge to punch someone in the face I'll go over to KR.
sheesh i thought there was irony in the sentence. you know 'praise God i can be an atheist.' Forgot you yanks don't do irony
Maybe he was pulling your chain?
Ghostbuster? you give him that much credit? haha j/k
Oh don't count us all out over here Parka! It is called sarcasm and it has to be doled out carefully or it will spill over into a fist fight. Oh and forget Ironic Sarcasm - right over every ones heads! I have stuck my foot into my mounth more times then I can count.
Oh and Knewnan - I knew you were one of us - the Bill Hocks quote? Beautiful!
well we might as well just go home
I didn't catch that joke. I didn't take note of the "thank God" part because people use that phrase (and others..."God damn it") all the time without actually meaning it. Oh well.
Separate names with a comma.
