    As I can never settle on a music station in most parts of the country, i typically listen to npr or talk-radio and let me tell you on my drive from northern vermont to southwest florida over the past few days, the views and content of talk radio is quite the contrast between places.

    Anyway, in sourthern georgia today there was only 'christian' talk radio programing available. The topic was the 'alarming' growth of islam in europe and the US. The two hosts continued to argue of how it was absolutely necessary to kill any islamic person who does not respect christianity in the middle east as well as calling for a strengthening of the christian church in the US and abroad to prevent global domination by the islamic faith. There was tremendous listener support for these views.

    Sorry, but if you ask me, these type of people are 'insurgents' within or own country.

    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    All religious fanatics are sick, demented people - it doesn't matter if they're Christian or Muslim. That sounds like some pretty sick, narrow-minded talk, though. This is why I feel glad not to live in the south.

    I listen to talk radio too and sometimes I'll listen to the christian stations because they're so unintentionally funny.

    there's a couple christian talk programs here that i tune into occaisionally, but they're more along the lines of bible history and discussion of doctrines. i've never heard anyone saying "KILL THE MUSLIMS!! THEY'RE THE DEVIL!!" i'd probably laugh my ass off if i did. bizarre.

    I have just moved to the USA from the UK (April 15th) and I am shocked at the lack of world affairs knowledge here.
    I too listen to talk radio, some guy is trying to wake you all up.
    The UK has more mosque's than churches, there is a Muslem take over in the UK, and that's why I'm here in the USA. (Manchester Council is now building schools in Pakistan, with our tax money, so that the children will not miss their education due to the long periods spent on "Heritage" holidays)
    I am not racialist in any form, but Muslims are invading the UK and are winning that war.
    I read the Quran twenty years ago, and it frightened me then, I spoke to a new 16 year old emmigrant muslim lad from Pakistan in my own home in the UK, and he said we would all become Muslim's "Of course". We cannot comprehend the loss of our freedom, BUT, it really is just around the corner.

    By the way. Selling my house in the UK: 5 muslims and 1 English prospective purchasers to date. Place: Worcestershire. In the heart of England.!

    Not all cultures are tolerant........

    and that my friend is the true route of this problem - lack of tolerence. There doesn't have to be a 'war' between christians and muslims or muslims and jews. Had our nation (US) been more tolerant and informed about the islamic faith over the past 50 years (as well as not being such oil whores) this whole mess could have been avoided.

    there may be something to the intolerance of the muslim faith. they believe that everyone should be muslim. however, that's not so far removed from christian dogma. only the methods are different. pushing either faith can be seen as pretty insulting and hurtful to various cultures, but within that faith is such a believe in the perfection of the faith that it's unthinkable that someone should not be within the faith.

    me, i see it as just another step of cultural evolution, bound to happen, unstoppable. wars will continue to be fought over it.

    Tolerance,
    The difference is that you/me can write this...
    If you were forced to become Muslim, you would no longer have the freedom to speak about your true thoughts. You would have to "go along" and repeat the Muslim dogma, and have no other words or thoughts on religion, through fear of retribution...From your Iman.........
    Muslems will not tolerate our freedom...We are irreligous (and all sorts of horrid things, and believe me, they hate the way we live), I will burn in torment forever and ever..(That is my given fate from one Muslim because I would not say that Allah was God)....
    It's your shout, and you better shout it loud, if not it may be too late and you will get your head lopped off..............
    WARNING.!
     
  11. . In their holy book it says that Christians, and Jews are people of the book. They do not have to become Muslim, and they can live together. Its all the same God in truth. There is a BIG difference when you say all of Muslims are intolerant assholes. Not true. You have to realize that your misconception of Islam is from all the Muslims who dont follow Koran. They set the bad example for the rest of the good people. And mankind has a tendency to remember the negative situations, and ignore the positives. Most Christians dont even follow the bible!

    Strawpuppy you dont think that the people "UK" at one time migrated from somewhere else??? Do you think that the UK is only entitled to Arians, and people followers of the bible? Go educate yourself on some real history, and understanding of people. I think it is ridiculous that you think that Islam is the intolerant religion. Use your brain and think about the other world religions.
    Your fear is your ignorance. You are a racist, and everything you said about the Muslims is you. YOU ARE INTOLERANT.

    So you say God is all one really!
    Better shout it out louder while you can............
    Because your tolerance is what is allowing an intolerant religion to move in and dominate.
    I never called Muslims assholes. I have many muslim friends. It is the religion that scares me.........
    It would be a good idea for you to get on the internet and talk to some muslim arabic folks living in Arabia about Islam...........(if they will even talk to you).......Try to tell them what you think!
    Please let me know if you get one to debate relgion with you, and ask them if I could join in too!

    at the same time that you say this, you discount the fact that it's human nature to want to prolong and protect your way of life. they don't want to life peacefully among the non-muslims, they want everyone to be non-muslims or else pay a fee for the priveledge to live with them (as people of the book). you don't like american trying to spread their way of life to other nations, but will condone muslims wanting to spread their way of life to us. it's a door that goes both ways.

    i have to add here that it's one thing for people to wish to interact with other cultures and peoples, that's the best. but it usually doesn't stop there. it usually continues naturally towards people trying to re-establish a society with which they are comfortable, which is their own.

    whew..........ok.....i agree with some of the things on here and disagree w/ others

    i think that the attitude that is plaguing the earth, the one of religious intolerance, the one of muslims vs christian.....is unfortunate but the direction that the bible foresaw. people can argue w/ me. they can tell me that i am stupid. we live in scary times. the only way to change the course of this planet is with ourselves. with tolerance. with love. but it will not happen. there are too many people who prefer to act out in ignorance and who would prefer to hate

    this was about talk radio sheesh!

    Sorry DHS, but I don't believe you. I live in South Georgia, and listen to the radio all the time driving in this area. What station was this on? Whose program was it? Any names at all? Claiming that Christians were advocating killing muslims is very serious. If they in fact said this, I would question the validity of their religion. In any event, without specifics I tend to believe that you are fabricating this just to tell a story.

    No fabrication at all. I can't recall the station nor the hosts as I was only passing through. Whoever they were, they had an extremely harsh tone towards militant muslims and went as far as to say that those who cannot accept what we are doing in Iraq should be killed.
     
  18. Yup, I live in Atlanta and can tune into those wacko stations from here. There are alot in Fla. too. But you know, those fanatical radio stations are all over this country, not just in the south. When we were moving from Colorado to GA, we tuned into alot of those type stations, driving through middle-America (Kansas-Missouri-Oklahoma-Illinois). Those wackos are everywhere, unfortunately. Those folks spewing intolerance are just as crazy as the Islamic fundamentalists -- they just call God a different name as far as I'm concerned -- but they're all cut out of the same crazy-ass mold.

    We were driving back from Florida in March and passed through this tiny little southern town and some nut was selling confederate flags with a picture of Jesus printed in the middle of the flag, big as could be! Huge crosses planted everywhere in front of peoples homes, celebrating Easter.....my kids had so many questions about what they were seeing, I couldn't keep up with them. One finally asked me "mom, why is Jesus on a stick?" I cracked up -- the vision in my head....Jesus on a stick..... It just sounded funny. (No, I don't think crucifiction is funny so don't even start with me!). Anyway, it was so "in your face" down there, it made Atlanta look very attractive to me. I don't go outside the city limits too often....

    i can't criticize people for putting up crucifixes on their lawns for easter, it IS the entire point of the christian celebration of easter, the death and resurrection. but the "jesus on a stick" is pretty damned cute.

    Despite the fact that I didn't care for some of his religious overtones, Jones provided a breath of fresh air from the same old bullsh*t that the establishment was spouting. He wasn't (and still isn't) afraid to cover controversial subjects. He was on a station just outside Washington D.C. for a short while last year. I highly recommend checking out his site below, providing many interesting articles and links:

    I agree that fundamentalists have usurped and are perverting true christianity. Unfortunately, those telling the truth are being squelched. Some time back, I found this site which seemed interesting:
