Islamophobic Christians have been calling Muslims terrorists for years - despite the fact that the vast majority of Muslims are peaceful people that go to work everyday to support families they love, just like anyone else. What is happening is just what the Bible said will happen: For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. (Matt 7:2)
I am a Christian, but to deny that more people have been killed in the name of Christianity than any other religion (Crusades, etc.) is to bury our heads in the sand and to rob us of any chance of honest self-examination. Read the Article at HuffingtonPost

It's not just money, the poor & MC have long sacrificed their sons on the front lines to defend this country while the wealthy get their sons exemptions or officer jobs.
The poor and MC have sacrificed sons, treasure, and comfort for our Country, and it is high time the wealthy contribute their fair share. But, one forgets, when it comes down to it, the wealthy have no country. Read the Article at HuffingtonPost
Jesus believed in feeding the poor and healing the sick. The first church was Socialist (Acts 2:44). If anyone hates (which in Biblical terms refers to actions rather than feelings) God, it would be the Conservatives who do the opposite of what the Bible commands and teach their followers to hate those whom the Bible says God loves (poor, widows, fatherless, sick, thirsty, etc.) Read the Article at HuffingtonPost
I celebrated Glenn Beck's departure by calling my cable company and increasing my subscription off the local channel only tier. Still hate the fact that I'll be partially paying for Faux News, but I'm not subsidizing Beck's salary. Read the Article at HuffingtonPost
