Follow Up on "Urban Terrorist"

I am retracting the statement I made that I might be a blogosphere terrorist if you ask someone conservative enough. I did not mean to imply that Keith at A Little Bit Tired had actually called me a blogosphere terrorist. In fact, there is no such thing as a blogosphere terrorist. I just made it up yesterday. And I am pretty sure Keith had never heard of me until yesterday either.

On a side note, here is a comment that was posted over there about my post:

“So to be a terrorist, one must have a political or religious motivation. And it helps to have some friends with the same intent.”
Homosexuals have both political and religious motivations and they have a few friends with the same intent. Thanks, now I’m allowed to call homosexuals “terrorists”. The same applies to the rest of the liberal, Godless, democratic party.
Woohoo, who would have thunk I could have learned anything constructive from one of “them terrorists”?


To be a terrorist, one must have political motivation AND KILL PEOPLE. Gays and liberals generally do not kill people to advance their political belief. The murder part of the definition is kind of important. Without that, anyone with any political agenda would be considered a terrorist.

Plus, the point is that right-wingers are ALREADY referring to liberals as terrorists. Does anyone actually read what I write?

I wasn't offended,
I was only wondering how you came to choose me or my blog.

No worries on my part.

Homosexuality kills as does liberalism and Godlessness.
Maybe they are more like these terrorists than was first implied!
After all, they indulge in this activity of their own free will and they realize that this behavious shortens their own lives and by teaching others to behave in these perverse fashions, it kills others.
Liberals and homosexuals are not just terrorists, but homicide bombers!

Tye, you are welcome to your viewpoint...feel free to post anything you want here. I just want to say that I disagree completely with everything you said. Your brand of reasoning breeds ignorance and hatred.

Hey Tye

Just checked out your website. Are you for real, or are you involved in some sort of performance art/absurdist satire? Just wondering.

If you are for real. Wow man, wow.
All that hate will eat you up inside brother. Have you ever considered tantric yoga? Tai-chi? I don't get into all that new-agey stuff myself, but I know some people who swear by it.

It's ok, the world hates Christians. I have learned to live with that hate. If I let it get to me it would eat me up. Thanks for your concern but as a Christian, I am strong and I have the truth to support me.
Jeze, it's the ignorance and hate in the world against which Christians fight daily.
I understand why you disagree with the truth and with God and someday I pray that you find it in you to come to Christ and to accept the truth and to shed that hate and ignorance.
It sounds like a foreign concept to the two of you, Jeze & Craig, but in spite of your hate of God and His children, I still love you two.

Actually, I do have a religion. It involves ice cold Tequila and the music of J.J. Cale.

Craig,
I know Tye and have visited his site many times.

This hate in tye that you mention,
an example please?

Call me a "bleeding-heart", but I find this hateful.

Says Tye:

"The Muslims don't want to be your friends. They won't babysit your kids while you're at the movies. They want to kill you. They are not civilized. They are barbarians. Their god demands your blood."

"They worship the pedophile, homosexual, uneducated, murdering terrorist who founded their religion..."

I have a friend from Chad, and he's Muslim. He doesn't want to kill anybody. He's much more concerned with taking care of his two-year old daughter, and paying his rent.

Says Tye:

"These animals smile and sing and chant to their false god..."

Now for someone who is so quick to accuse others of "hating" Christians (which I do not, as I would have to hate at least half of my family), Tye sure is quick to call the Muslim god "false." Wasn't it Christ who told us to love our enemies?

Tye says:

"Given the chance, they would chop you into little pieces, rape your wives and daughters, sing songs about it for years to come, all in the name of their false gods, for pleasure."

Maybe Tye doesn't find these things hateful. Maybe these are the kind of things he usually talks about. But in my world, this is hate.

Craig,
the substance, deal with the substance.

Over-all is the religion of Islam a violent religion or is it not?

I don't judge Christianity on the actions of Eric Rudolph, and the words of Neil Horsely. Why should I judge the Islamic faith on the actions of bin Laden, and Hezbollah? There are extremists in any faith. There is no substance to calling people barbarians and their god false. That sort of discourse ignores any pretense of objectivity, as a narrow view has already been taken.

Tye, not everyone in the world hates Christians. And not all Muslims want to kill you. Try to avoid thinking only in extremes and xenophobia and it may not seem that the entire world is out to get you.

AND, for the record, I find it incredibly offensive that you presume to know my religious practices after having read one post on my blog. I am pleased to know that you love me "in spite of my hate of God and his children." The fact is I do not hate God and his children. I may not be a fundamentalist like you, but that does not mean that you can make assumptions about my soul or my feelings or my alleged hethenism. Maybe you also would like to guess what my favorite meal is, or how many times I have had sex this month, or the number of hairs on my head?

Not all catholics, and not all Christians are "practicing". If you happen to know a muslim who "does not want to kill you" then you know a muslim (like those who call themselves catholics or Christians) by label only. He is not practising his religion. His god, his holy quran tells him to kill you on the spot. Unless you are a muslim, you are an infedel and you are to be hunted and exterminated. That's not me "hating" them, that's them hating us, you, me.
I don't "judge" these muslims by their actions, Craig. I can tell what their actions or lack thereof mean and those who lack them, are not active muslims who practice their religion according to their god, their quran.

Ok, Jeze, let's find out about your faith. Would you like to focus on that? I'll start by emailing you a few questions and allow you to reply then build from those first few responses. I'll let you decide if you want to post those questions and responses later on, deal?

Tye, I do not want to focus on my faith because this is a POLITICAL blog and I am one of the few people left who feels that religion and politics should not mix.

If you have anything to add in response to the original post (which was about misuse of the word terrorist, if anyone has forgotten), I look forward to reading it.

Ok, sorry to turn the focus onto you, ma'am. I agree with you, that religion and politics should not mix but if I were to use the word as you're using it (religion) then I would have to disagree with you.
As for the misuse of words, you illustrated that well with your mis use of the word religion. I believe that the word terrorism is under used and that just goes along with this soft politically correct culture your kind has cultivated. We no longer name the sin, homosexuality, we call it an alternate lifestyle choice or misname it as "Gay". It's no longer adultery but an "open relationship". It's no longer rape and pedophilia but "child porn or prostitution" as if the children has choices!
Yeah, you folks misuse the english language in general these days.
Thanks for that, ma'am.
