There was a Sikh in Phoenix who was murdered right after the 9-11 attacks. Because the Sikhs killed several thousand Christians that day.

Red Shirt Blues: Something is not quite right here. Dude shows up demanding money and gold and tears up citizenship papers.  I hate to be that guy.......but this is all very fishy. Too set....too many props.


Stranger stories have been concocted and carried out in the name of insurance fraud. Let's see how it plays out.

You know, back in the day, Catholics were pretty safe in Iraq, a well represented and respected minority, in fact.  I wonder what happened to drive them out of their native country?

Maud Dib: Headso: why would you move to new mexico? I guess the climate?

[www.geraintsmith.com image 850x395]

It's the desert, without bombs and shiat.


Yeah, spent a few weeks in New Mexico, it was beautiful. The reservation towns(Pueblos, I believe) were actually nice, too, which was not the norm in Arizona... I got a little tired of downtown Santa Fe, at first the twisting narrow streets and adobe are charming. After awhile, you want some color and a street that you can pass a dog in, but I really did enjoy NM for the most part.

Gecko Gingrich: The final straw that ended a pretty good friendship between me and someone else was when he declared on Facebook that "all them Muslims should be shipped back to where they came from".

I've got a friend who was born in Pakistan. Her family left when she was about three because they are Christian and were "encouraged" by the locals to seek a new locale. She was "one of them Muslims".

My friend from high school whose family came from Persia about 4 generations back was "one of them Muslims".

My Lebanese friend and fellow choirboy (no, literally, we sang in The St. Paul's Choir of Men and Boys together) who died when I was 12 in a horrific car accident would have been "one of them Muslims".

The truly ironic thing about the whole situation is that said Facebook poster is a Catholic Irish-American.


Micks have turned into some of the biggest "uncle toms" for lack of a better term, to the powers that be that we have at the moment.

Yep.  FB has done a good service in that regard.


Ayup. I found myself un-friending a couple of people from high school who were spouting "I can't believe Obama's claiming to be a Christian" shortly after his election.

Yep

Shortly after 9/11 there were several attacks on Sikhs who live in Lane County, Oregon. The attackers made the assumption that because they wear turbans they must be Muslims.


You know who hated the Sikhs?

Gandhi.

ignorant Bigots who attack Sikhs are usually a self-correcting problem as one of the basic tenets of their religion, at least for men, is be armed at all times


Hell, I never knew I'm a Sikh.

He was sentenced to death for "persecution of Islamic parties," but the Iraqi President has refused to sign his execution order.

No, but the fact that it wasn't a Muslim he attacked shows that not only is his view bigoted and backward, but that he's a barking racist, not the anti-Muslim/pro-American patriot that he thinks he is.

You know, before I read these two comments, I was ignorant of the Sikh.
I decided to look up the belief system and was really surprised at what I learned.
I'm not saying that I was suspicious of them, but I was ignorant.
I kinda like what they believe, well at least what Wiki says. I'll need to talk to one of these guys before forming a real opinion.
Just sayin' thanks for giving me that little push.
