Question by Pastor Winthrop: Why do Muslims place so little emphasis on freedom?
In the West, especially America, “freedom” is the sacred
word that both left and right fight over to claim most
identifies with their political ideology.

I just don’t hear any talk of freedom amongst Muslims.

All I hear is talk of Jihad against the West, fighting
capitalism and imperialism, and so on.

If anything I hear talk of “western freedoms” being
“decadent” and which must be be purged from
Islamic nations.

Iran votes in legislative elections next week but a third of
the candidates have been disqualified…yet the regime
and its religious supporters believe that the election is
still “fair”. Those disqualified were charged with
“promoting freedom and other perverse activities”.

So do Muslims really even understand the basics of
what it means to be a free individual living in a free
society?

Or does it simply not matter to them?

Question by cynical bugger: When “Socialism” is so obviously misunderstood by the Extreme right, why bother even listening?
When so many are so utterly blinded by Fox “News” to the exclusion of receiving, even for a moment, any other, less biased form of information without having to label it, “liberal” merely because it proposes to expose something that more closely resembles a truth, why even bother to argue? It is they who have partaken of the “Cool-Aid”. Its’ everybody else who must remain objective, render an honest opinion, question, answer, etc and continue to criticize our corporately led government, which, of course, in spite of the best intentions, we still suffer under.
Socialism is not the same as Communism. Socialism means taking care to some extent of your own people- it is a social agreement to support the meek against the powerful who already have command of their resources and to some extent abuse them to the detriment of society- if your merely looking for lower taxes, well, that’s actually another story- tax the wealthy who have already gained so much at the cost of so many. I’m not for a moment suggesting that the workers take over the means of production- that is yet another, oft misunderstood and failed story. Why confuse the issue with false information?
The Republicans have been practicing socialism for the wealthy for decades yet barely anyone gets this. The pendulum has certainly swung too far- there is a sensible balance short of bankrupting ourselves, though it may already be too late.
Even intelligent people cling to these assumptions which is why it remains so utterly frustrating.
‘Assumptions’ being what I’ve already mentioned as the right wing agenda of mindlessly and endlessly hoarding what they could never have produced entirely on their own by any reasonable assumption.
I’d be happy if I could extract an honest answer from a single one of them.
Obviously I’ve arrived at the wrong door, here.
David I, thank you. I knew I wasn’t insane, LOL. Pod people and all of that.

Question by geeks_gadgets: Why are Christians the most persecuted religion in the world?
You may say “Christian are violent, or liars, or whatever you want. But when you compare them with other religions, they are not. At least not the real Christians. Why are Christians then the most persecuted?

And don’t tell me they are not persecuted. Stop watching “fox news” and look at the international channels.

Question by Juan Lopez: How come in every portrait of Adam and Eve Adam has darker skin?
I just find it weird. In every picture of the two Eve is very pale. I don’t know why. Just found that a little odd. Also, dos anyone kow what happens to them? I don’t remember any mention of their deaths or anything like that.
Yeah I know artists paint it differently but I’ve seen about 10 portraits where he always had darker skin than her. I always thought. It symbolic or something to that effect.
