Be Careful, They Might Riot!
"I would really say that the actions of one individual really do not represent the Islamic faith," said Debbie Jaunich, with the Islamic Center of Raleigh.
Yeah Debbie, that would be all fine and well if it was "the actions of *one* person", but unfortunately it's 20+ years of actions by thousands of people...
"...A Church's Sign Against Islam Sparks Controversy: Words like "bomb" and "die" draw attention to the small sign in front of Good News Independent Baptist Church.
Rev. Gary Murrell put up the sign, which on one side claims the message of Islam is "submit, convert or die." The other side reads: "When is the last time you heard of a Jew or Christian with a bomb strapped to their body?"
Despite some in the Islamic community who claim the sign is offensive, Murrell says it is not a hate sign. "It was not put up there with the purpose of showing that we hate those people," he said. "It's not the people, it's the religion." (source)
Of course, one of the main tenants of Islam is that it is the only true religion and not only will the Apes and pigs (infidels) not enter heaven, but they should be killed... Can't Christians believe that their religion is the only way? Is it wrong for them to point out that they normally choose rallies and handing out tracts to strapping on C4?
