re: Why do you think some liberals are Islamist apologists? - Bayou Sam
Well, what's he or she like? I know a number of Muslims. I went to high school with three or four Muslim families, had a very close friend (raised Catholic) who converted to Sunni Islam, and then deconverted to another more liberal and heterodox sect, knew some Muslims in college, and since have ...

[quote]Once again focusing on me and irrelevant issues. You claim you can "easily" do something. Yet it seems to be the only thing you can't do in this thread. You are such an intellectual heavyweight.[/quote] Is this supposed to masquerade as a point? I answered the OP's question, whic...

re: True or false: America is at war with Radical Islam - Bayou Sam
No, we should not ignore "them", but we shouldn't have a fuzzy understanding of the world either. In the last ten years, we've fought wars against various entities, some of which are radically Islamic and some not. I don't think it's in the US interest to try to eliminate "radical Islam" as such,...

[quote] Speaking with such intellectual superiority to those you know nothing about is textbook hubris. [/quote] I know something about you. Whenever I post something, you accused me of committing a rudimentary fallacy. However, you never demonstrate any understanding of my posts, nor even the fa...

[quote]I have yet to hear a muslim even one that claims to be about peace talk about and condemn terrorists acts and groups like isis.[/quote] You've never heard a Muslim condemn ISIS? I'd suggest that you either aren't trying very hard to look, or your media sources are very poor. ...

[quote]By the way...you still have yet to actually post a substantive rebuttal to my proposition that you cannot defend Islam without bringing up Christianity. You have chosen to spend your posts fighting irrelevant battles. Congrats.[/quote] I've posted more than one response to your substance...

Quoque. Better? [b]Both are accepted descriptions[/b]. [b]The point was made[/b]. Talk about concentrating on irrelevant stuff. Though, that appears to be your forte. [b]Your hubris[/b] aside...it is apparent you ignore the questions I ask...why can't you defend Islam without bringing up Chriatianit...

re: Why do you think some liberals are Islamist apologists? - Bayou Sam
[quote]Every post of yours attempts to equate Christianity and Islam. No matter how much you try to dress it up. It is Tu Coque. Why are you so against admitting this? It is the basis of everything you are attempting to argue. (Not well, by the way).[/quote] Just. Stop. This is embarrassingly dum...

[quote]I don't have any interest in tolerating Islam until it reaches this point, and certainly don't want more of them over here to drag us further into their religious sphere.[/quote] I'm not sure what you mean by this. Many Muslims have democratized. Do you know Muslims who live in the US? I k...

[quote]Someone said on here once that liberals/progressives attempt to fight the status quo or the establishment.

re: Why do you think some liberals are Islamist apologists? - Bayou Sam
I'm a liberal, and I often "apologize" for Islam. But I do so in a particular context: namely, against ludicrous arguments against Islam, about its history, and about its "essential evil" or "essential incompatibility with western government". In fact, Christianity was incompatible with modern we...

re: What are some "bad" movies which you enjoy? - Bayou Sam
[quote]Roadhouse [/quote] I think a lot of these movies are actually really good. E.g., Point Break, 10 Things I hate about you. In this category, I'd controversially put the Nolan Batman movies, which, when you get some distance from them, are pretty hokey outside of Ledger's Joker. But in th...
