If we cannot convince tens of millions of ( mostly ) religious fanatics in America that our President is an American Christian,

what can we do about hundreds of millions of religious fanatics who do not understand about freedom of speech and freedom of the press ?

what can we do ?



Read the Rules

Both religious fanatics and political fanatics suffer from the same condition. They don't look at the facts, they just look at the face of their master and follow his command alone, no matter how illogical or how lacking in common sense.

we could keep them in a state of perpetual agitation with the release every couple of months or so of some new slap to the Prophet . . . They should grow weary of burning stuff in a few decades or so . . . .

It should be illegal for candidates to talk about their religion I think it becomes a "test of faith" for office, if all the Americans who don't go to church refused to vote for anybody that does, this problem would be gone soon enough.

If the goal today is to disburse crowds attacking the embassy, and we don't want to kill or injure anyone, what about spraying tear gas laced with pork fat ?
Or even just spread rumors that it is ?

I'm not at all sure that wouldn't backfire - but it is a novel idea . . . .

Nothing can co-exists with extremism-----and I do mean all forms (left). The question is how are we as a nation willing to go?

Without going into details of ANY right left issue,
there is one fundmental difference between right and left

most on the right are very sure of their position -
and want everyone to agree with them

most on the left are very sure of their position -
and don't need everyone to agree with them

That is at once both deep and concise.

Brilliant really.

I would add - On the left we are generally much more open to new information, and in allowing that new information to alter or to modify our current position.

We could make more videos! Hundreds more, thousands more; in fact, every American should make is his duty, his lifetime trek, a pilgrimage... to produce at least one video.
