undergrandnitz, you really crack me up! I think it would be very interesting to have you on a boat fishing, a combination of you and my brother would make for an interesting day. But one thing that you should know, we do not use death rays on fish around here.
A good question chewy. I admit that Islam interests me as much as christianity does, which does not add to a whole lot for me. I find most religions dangerous as all get out. I do like the the dalia lama tho. He promotes a different kind of message.
We have a lot of japanese people that live on the coast. I knew one that was a fisherman, a commerical one that is before that industry started going in the same direction as the east coast. He told me alot of stories about what happened to his family in world war two. His family spent most of it in a camp in Lethbridge. I don't think they really every got compensated for everything that was taken away from them. How to compensate someone who has been stripped of their dignity? Funny thing about it, his family was born in canada. I think the same thing happens with muslims. All painted with the same brush, because of the actions of a few. Its nothing new, one thing you can count on in this world is history repeating its self, alot.
I know a few muslims, but we really don't talk religion. My friend from kosvo is a muslim, but we would rather talk gardening. I should ask her some questions about her faith, I do know she loves america, she insists they saved her and family and without their intervention in kosvo she might not be around today. Her stories are way to scary for me in that regard. I still find it very hard to disgest that someone would want to harm her or her nice family because they were muslim, religion is a good place for hate to hang around in, they just disquise what they really are, under the guise of a god.
Is there any here at this board that is a muslim? tell us something about your faith and you feelings on what is going on with the way muslims are being painted.
