    Yesterday, I heard the protesters say, America must make criticizing Islam a
    crime..... if we want to save our embassies. These people for the most
    part are illiterate and have no jobs; so it is easy to get them to hate America
    and destroy our embassies. It is like the child that throws a temper tantrum
    in the supermarket and the parent gives him what he wants to get him to quiet down.
    And then when they go to the department store, he throws another tantrum to
    get a toy. As long as the temper tantrum gets what he wants from his parent,
    he will use it over and over............

    The Muslims have made that little temper tantrum tactic even more dangerous
    to the world by using terrorist attacks, and they don't care how many people they
    kill or maim to get their way.......... And as long as the tactic works, they will use
    it.

    I am a liberal and I don't believe in mocking any religion unless it's all in good fun and everyone who hears the joke knows that. I'm a Christian and I laugh at jokes about Christians as long as they're not meant to be offensive. But telling a joke to offend a person, race, religion, nationality, or any other group of people, well, not only is it morally wrong, it's counter-productive if we ever want to create a better world for all future generations to live in.

    BUT.. have you heard one complaint from obama or this administration about the hate speech and hate posters and hate rallies almost daily against Jews and Christians in this and other countries??? the silence is deafening..

    I agree that that's the liberal rules. It's also what the Muslims, Muslim Brotherhood want. As long as we are still America, the good old US of A, we have free speech. I intend to use mine. Until someone starts crying foul about an image of Christ being stuff into a bottle of urine and calling it art, or trying to make out that Mary was some sort of whore, then I will keep saying whatever I wish about violent, hate-filled Muslims.

    So it is with shame I must agree. I have been very disappointed with my liberal friends for ridiculing Mormons and Christians, while calling the Muslim mockery evil and wrong. Mitt Romney should be judged by his abilities and actions and not by his religion. This is an embarrassment to me as a Centrist. I wish that all progressives, democrats, liberals, etc would let the religion issue die.

    More pragmatic than that, more wanting to let the current insanity die down before the next bout. If you're a religion that's younger than the United States though, you're going to get mocked if you appear on the radar at all. That's just how it works.

    It's true you can mock any religion in America but Muslims get offended so easily and now Egypt has put out for the arrest of those who made the film; as if that was the cause of this crap in North Africa and the Middle East. Can't wait to see what the UN has to say in its infinite wisdom.

    Did you post an image from a TV show?

    I guess you have a hard time distinguishing reality from fiction.

    By the way, dummy, polygamy is ACTUALLY practiced by Muslims.

    It's hilarious how you prove me right.

    I bet you believe in the tooth fairy.

    Listen i/di/ot, these freaks are a break away group from the mainstream LDS church. They have all been excommunicated for their actions. They are FLDS,Fundamentalist. They did mot want to live the rules, so they were kicked out, The LDS church does not practice polygamy, it was abolished years and years ago, and is considered a sin. Before you post pictures of cults that have zero to do with the LDS church, fact check. You are proving that ignorance is running away with your brain. Many catholic priests molested children, but I know most catholics are really good people. Now educate yourself before you slander other groups.

    That's a point, The NOW screams like a scalded cat if a Catholic college refuses to pay for the birth control of it's students, but is oddly silent when Muslim women are abused, mutilated, raped, and murdered.
    Am I the only one who thinks this is some sort of bizarro land logic?

    You can knock Mormons who have the ability to shake it off saying "not my soul being damned", you can't knock Muslims because some think flying plains into building will "teach those nonbelievers".

    You've got it wrong it's the right wing Christians that mock Mormons. Who's always protesting at Mormon temples? Right wing Christians. What political affiliation do most right wing Christians hold? Republican. As far as mocking Muslims it's your right wing Christians again. So your question should read: Conservative rules: you can mock Mormons and Muslims - Agree?

    I would guess that those guys are probably gays that the LDS church has been against for a long time. I didn't see any liberal Democrats there! So in that case your question should start with Gay Rules:!

    That's because liberal democrats hate family values and hate people with different beliefs and opinions.

    Once again, you are misinformed.

    The church is not 'against gays' and there are far more Mormons in favor of homosexual marriage than Muslims.

    Once again your logic fails.
  • Chief Daryl 2012/09/18 21:08:13
    Chief
    There's no logic involved the two groups that protest Mormons are gays because of prop 8 in California and Christians. If you can't deal with the truth you shouldn't be asking questions.

    That is ridiculous.....Now your knocking Christians....LOL....
    No Christians I know have ever protested a Mormon church...They may disagree with the Religion but doesn't every one of a different religion do the same? YES they do!
    Now lets see all Republicans are not right winged Christian either ....Your just all wrong in your stereotypes....
  • Chief mach-1 ... 2012/09/18 19:25:52

    Not knocking Christians at all. If you've ever been to a Mormon temple that's what you'll see is Right wing Christians spewing nothing but hate towards Mormons. I can't help the facts. I see it all the time.
  • Chief mach-1 ... 2012/09/18 19:27:45

    I've seen right wing Christians throw things and spit at newly wed couples coming out of the temple right after getting married.

    No you haven't, you just like to assume anyone who does something like that must be right-winged and a Christian. My Dad happens to be one and he's never done anything like that.
  • Chief MorbidC... 2012/09/18 19:40:07

    I'm sure your Dad's a good guy, but just do a google search on Momon temple protests.

    You'll find 2 groups that protest Mormons: gays and Christians.
