RE: The dumbing down of America by religious fascists begins in earnest

At a guess, I believe he thinks that the state of our eternal souls are in some jeopardy. He is not threatening or calling-down pain and suffering upon our worldly flesh.

If he's right on his first assumption, his God is real, then he is obviously correct in his conclusion.

Oh well, my in-laws are probably pretty sure I'm on the conveyor to eternal torment since they're Baptists. My neighbors, good people that they are, think that of me because they're Roman Catholic. Apparently the world is full of Muslims who believe this of me, too. If Heaven is popular opinion, I'm screwed.

I don't mind if some think I'm going to hell (Mrs. Az has told me I'm going there a couple of times). If I do, I'll be in good company with all ya'll[:D]. What gives me gas is the folks who want to send me there prematurely with the edge of a knife. Them I can do without; which is why I carry my .45 H&K [}:)][}:)][}:)]. I concluded that if the kidnappings and beheadings begin to happen here as well, and if I am chosen to lose the lottery, I'll have the fight right then and there. I'd rather die fighting than be butchered. Sorry for the highjack.....as it were.

Bot,
I think you said it well. Christians, who simply tell people of their jepordy, have true love for people as their motivation. It would be like, If you were blind, and walking toward a cliff, and I saw your situation and tried to alert you to the danger.
Now,there are those who are not so motivated--their desire is to have power and control over others. Moslem fundamentalists, as well as many who call themselves " Christians" fall into this category. People in this group deserve all the ridicule they get.

Any person,man or woman who needs to carry a weapon,has no faith,wether they be christian or otherwise.
Believe me ,the shooting of a fellow human in the name or reason of any god,will earn you the ire of a vengful god.
I live in country where it is forbidden to own any sort of firearm,bow and arrow or go abroad in public with a knife capable of cutting human flesh.
And yet our leader ship saw fit to include our tiny army in your ungodly act of aggression .
May your god forgive you ....because i know mine won't.
