That's the biggest attacking threat Michael Owen's put forth in years, the lazy little shiat.

GuyCaballero: The problem is that people in the Arab world tend to utter the phrase when committing acts of hatred and violence. I'm not a Christian, but I'd be offended if someone claimed to praise the same God as me and uttered his name in this manner.


Do you think that that is the only way the term is used in Arabic? Or do you think that there is a level of bias in how its usage is reported in the West.

These young men are using it as they are fighting to overthrow a government that has ruled their nation harshly for two generations, cumulating in recent months with the government turning the army on its own people, and what they could not get the army to do they hired mercenaries from other parts of Africa to do. Is being on the verge of liberating* you nation from such a regime and inappropriate time to celebrate and offer praise to whatever god you believe in?

There are many instances, from the birth of a healthy child to a relative recovering from serious illness that the phrase can be suitably used in. But those cases don't make the Western press so much. It's not as though "God", and references to his/her/its power is not invoked in negative instances - but we just see all the neutral and positive instances to balance it out.

*God willing that they don't put it into the hands of people just as bad.

They also utter that phrase while performing the acts of getting out of bed, preparing coffee, enjoying the company of their children or celebrating any success - or failure. Kinda like how the Fundie-type Christians say things like 'Praise Be' or 'Thank you Lord' or 'Have a blessed day' at the drop of a farking hat.

12349876: OnlyM3: Because the last time American "Christians" flew airlines into skyscrapers, hijacked airliners, bombed embassies, celebrated 9/11 murders, demanded the death of those who wouldn't convert, bombed airliners, hung bodies from bridges lighting fire to them while cheering and dancing, beat airline passengers to death and dumped their bodies on the tarmac, kidnapped civilians, beheaded civilians who were hogtied while filming it for their j/o sessions was when exactly?

The Klan didn't have airplanes but fit most of that other stuff.

Dundasbro: OnlyM3: nrw

Its the worst thing in the world when Libya does it, but when elected officials say "America is a christian nation" , they think those of us who get worried by those statements are just crazy.

Not crazy, idiotic.

I hate jahova's witnesses knocking at my door too, but that's not exactly a moral equivalent to the animals you're watching on all-allah channel, no matter how much of your derp you add to it.

Allah Akbar = God is Great.

Is that an alien concept to Christians? Hell no. Do you want to guess how an Arabic speaking Christian, many of whom are extremely devout Christians who are often Christian in the face of extreme adversity, would comment on the greatness of God?

bartink: You don't think America is a violent nation?


In relation to other nations that have found themselves in a position of massive military superiority? No, not particularly violent. It's rare throughout history that one nation will have such a large advantage in military capability over its peers, and even more rare for that nation to exercise such restraint. The US hasn't been entirely peaceful, but neither have we rampaged across Europe in a quest for Lebensraum or for the glory of Senatus Populusque Romanus, or attempted to "unify" the neighboring nations (like Qin Shi Huang), or gone on a pointless blitz across Asia (Alexander the Great or Genghis Khan).

In contrast the US has Korea (now independent), Vietnam (also withdrawn), various skirmishes in Central America (also without permanent occupation), and now Afghanistan (fully justified) & Iraq (stupid, to be sure, but at least we're on the way out). Those are episodes of violence to be sure, but nothing like the scale of the true empires of the past.

Primum non nocere: I know I'm going to elicit invective here, but have to agree with Only M3 to some degree. American evangelicals for the most part are hard-working Americans who pay their taxes and mow their grass. Yes, they try to stop you from buying beer on Sunday. And yes, they will harass teenagers who are trying to get an abortion. But to equate them with the Taliban or Al-Qaeda is just disingenuous..

/ Atheist since 1994


Actually, shooting the occasional abortion doctor...ie, committing terrorism, since they're not wearing uniforms when they do it...DOES equate them with Al-Quaeda. If you pay attention, you'll note they're PROUD they've been able to reduce abortion availability in many U.S. counties. Terrorism works. Look at how 9/11 changed OUR society if you have any doubt.

The vast majority of Muslims are hard-working and pay their taxes too...but that accepting mass is the midden heap upon which the unholy flower of terrorism blossoms.

Don't worry, history tells us that they will, assuming that the new guys aren't worse. (cf. Iran under the Shah -> post-revolution Iran)
