Yeah, except that the people in the article you posted were banned fanatics. Meaning they were about as "orthodox" to Islam as the KKK is to christianity.
Nice try I guess. Nobody here is fool enough to fall for it but you put the effort in and that's what counts.
Tairaa's argument has very, very little to do with the so-called "banned fanatics." Tairaa was comparing Christianity to Islam, and the extreme orthodox views that groups within both religions hold. Then went on to suggest the KKK is equivalent to the Orthodox extremists Muslims.
Nowhere in his post did Tairaa refer to "Orthodox extremists Muslims" in any way shape or form.

Except for the fact that the KKK was founded on fundamental christian values.

hehehehehe ... Yes it does ... keep it up and I'll post a link to the KKK founding values.
frrostedman wrote:The same cannot be said about the Muslim extremists, who have countless verses to back up their views. You may believe that they take the verses out of context but nevertheless, there ARE verses that say to kill, bind, torture, punish, and plunder Christians and Jews.
Those type of people are referred to as "fanatics" Thomas. they're the ones who take a few verses from their book of worship and twist them around to suit their own personal views, not unlike what the KKK does.
frrostedman wrote:And then there is the comparison in numbers -- the KKK has about 5,000 members worldwide.
Right, and the Muslim population of the world is approximate 1.4 Billion people. If we were to believe your words, then you and all the people like you would be fooked, because you wouldn't stand a snowball's chance in hell against 1.4 billion Muslims that were all out to "kill, bind, torture, punish, and plunder Christians and Jews".

And I take back the "nice try." It was a really lame attempt.
