As Q had mentioned...

BWOT had became a bastion of anti-semitism and promotes islamic values and sharia law under the false banner of the "cultural tolerance".

I am ashamed such thing had happened, but too bad.

I am also ashamed to be on the same board with the defenders of the 6-8 years old girls married to the 50+ old men (wait, doesn't the prophet fall in here?).

BWOT used to be a great place to relax and talk and discuss.

Not anymore.

I am monitoring the forum from time to time, but don't even feel I need to respond, even to some outrageous and stupid comments.

If BWOT is a mirror of our society, we are fucking doomed.

To the old-timers: sorry guys, you let myself and yourselves down. You had allowed and encouraged this bullshit and the transformation of the board.

It used to be a fun place.

Not anymore.

The outrage should be in our acceptance of multiculturalism. I fukin hate that word.
I would however go to an Italian/Greek/Ukrainian festival to have some real good food but as long as religion is out the door I am game. It's ok to celebrate one's heritage but IT'S NOT OK to impose one's values based on so called heritage on others to a point where actual laws are proposed and even fukin drafted to suit minorities.
Don't get me wrong, I am not anti-minorities but they are called minorities for a reason. The day our border with Mexico is moved to to Canada I would try to sing another song... under my dead body!

@ DP - No law should be passed on behalf of religious interests that infringe on a person's basic human rights.

And maine_coon, I think we've had our differences in the past, but I think your assessment is dead on.

BWOT has folks to fit every view and views to fit every member. We have not become a bastion of anything. Since everyone can post, everyone can post equally and be both respected and harangued equally.

If you came here to see only one prevalent point of view, I can see where you might be disappointed. As one of the largest Benz sites in the world we have folks from EVERYWHERE. As the melting pot of the world AMERICA has folks from EVERYWHERE. Diverse views are going to exist. That is both the cool and worst part of this country.

Should 8 year olds be allowed to marry 47 year olds? Not in MY opinion. But then again, there are Mormon sects that think 12 is OK so I am guessing there is a big fuzzy line somewhere that changes with the wind. We are not in a position to address Saudi law, no matter what we think or care. The defense you might think is of their "right" to marry a 8 year old is no more than a reality that it is not up to us, in any shape form or fashion. In a perfect world something could be done. We don't live in a perfect world.

That does not promote islamic values, because I could just as easily be talking about Hindu or other religions or cultures. It simply says that we, as Americans have to realize that we are not in charge. We have to realize that, in the past eight years we have become LESS in control than we previously were.

Some on the board reflect those realities.

@ McBear - I'm not a defender of Israel, but there are LOTS of people who have NO PROBLEM associating the actions of the Israeli government with Jews. Without resistance. It's become en vogue to take the position against Israel and Jews. It was several threads a week, sometimes many in a day. Many involved one of the antagonists I've been asking to weigh in lately.

Start a couple of threads bringing some pretty reprehensible yet commonplace and current topics related to Islam, and here comes the "you're a hypocrite go mind your own business why should (that person) need to answer any of these questions" shit storm.

You know, there's a lot of truth in what you said, but there's a lot of truth in what maine_coon said.
