    Gee, good thing they didn't do this:


    GOMBE, Nigeria - Muslim students at a secondary school in northeastern Nigeria beat a teacher to death yesterday after accusing her of desecrating the Koran.

    Oluwatoyin Olusase, a Christian, was invigilating an Islamic religious knowledge exam at the school in Gombe state when the incident occurred.

    The students attacked her outside the school compound after the exam and killed her, witnesses said. It was not clear exactly what she had done to anger her attackers. [/QUOTE]

    Disagreeing with you, and finding some of the things you choose to post distasteful does not make me a troll. You can't call everyone who disagrees with you "troll". Soon there'd be no one left but you.

    Oh--and btw--GFY.

    since this thread is being derailed anyway, why do you suppose someone would "choose" to be gay in a country where you might be executed for it? Seems like a pretty big risk for a "lifestyle choice" don't you think?

    FTW was complaining about judges, not homosexuals.

    And no, wes, your topic is to try and tear down America, one post at a time.


    Post some good news. Post something positive for a change.

    You want the truth? Personally I really don't give a fukc. The Koran is just another book to me. Shoot it, piss on it, whatever. It won't bother me any. Not a smart PR move for him though for sure. If the soldier would have come to me first and said "whadya think, should I do it?". I would have advised him against it though and told him if he felt the need to shoot up some religious text, he ought to use the bible or Torah instead, that way ALL OF THE TURDS THAT PRETEND THEY CARE ABOUT THIS STUFF like you wouldn't say a freaking word.

    Hey troll, you wouldn't care if he shot up a bible, would you.............. Just the Koran, right? Thought so.

    Well this is pretty stupid IMO. He funny part is many lefties perhaps you would think it was funny or hip if it had been a Bible rather than the Quran. :rolleyes:

    If we were invaded and being occupied by a Muslim country and they did that to the bible you would be equally outraged. It's not the religious book that I care about it's the arrogance of not caring about how this appears to the muslim world and just stoking the fire for the hell of it.

    Your comments have and will be minimized by hysteria, intolerance and hyperbole... no matter how you cut this it should not have happened, if we go to another country and are essentially guests shouldn't we be expected to behave??.. consider if we were invaded and our invaders went to St. Patricks Cathedral and took target practice on the Tabernacle.. we would be upset also.. all of our forces know how this book is viewed by the muslim people.. so talk about Daniel Pearl and all of the rest of the crap, it is not right, but neither is this..

    What I can never understand is amidst all of the claims of these people being savages, why are we there and what do we hope to achieve.. we will probably not wipe out al quaeda or other fanatical groups by our presence, in cases like this all we do is give them ammunition to recruit more terrorists..
