Eight people injured during stabbing attack at Minnesota mall - attacker referenced allah

Post by Tommy Monk on Sun Sep 18, 2016 12:29 pm



people in a shopping mall in the US state of Minnesota on Saturday night, before being shot dead by an off-duty officer, police said.

The suspect "asked at least one person if they were Muslim before he assaulted them," Blair Anderson, the police chief in the city of St. Cloud where the attack took place, told journalists.

And all over the world people commit violence in the name of nearly every religion, and you totally ignore it.

What I get tired of is Tommy focusing on the bad things done by the groups he's prejudiced against, including Muslims, blacks, gays, and immigrants, and yet not having the balls to admit the conclusions he wants people to come to, or to offer his ideas of dealing with terrorism, crime, etc.

If there weren't such bad things and in such hugely disproportionate numbers then I wouldn't have any reason to keep highlighting it and then you wouldn't be able to try to say it was me being prejudiced...


Next you'll be blaming the news reporters for the crimes they only report on after the events...

It's a big country.  Over 320-million.  Big cities.  A lot of crime, most not even remotely related to Muslims.

We've got nothing but time. Muslims are wonderful people and the overwhelming majority of them make excellent friends and neighbors.

[5:52] - O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another.

[9:29] - Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

Obviously it's true in Quill's experience. I'll add that it's also true in my own -- I've never had a negative interaction with the Muslims I've met here in Texas.

Ever known a Christian who had premarital sex?

I'm obviously not picking on Christians, but setting up an example. The example is this -- most people who are religious don't follow all the teachings of their religions.

No you're not setting up an example, you're picking on Christians like you always do. I do hope that when someone is disparaging about Christians not following all their teachings, you'll make a remark about Muslims not following their teachings. I doubt you will though.

Don't be ridiculous, Raggs.  It's a comparison, to make a point: the same criticism directed elsewhere, also happens closer to home.  It's not disparaging any religion.

It's a message about not relating your displeasure to any particular religion.

Yes it is. Ben and others always turn threads like this into ones about Christians. They're just bigots who like to accuse others of being bigots.

And tommy (and others) always turns threads like this into ones about Muslims, thereby justifying Ben's point. It's not the religion, but a simple story.

No. This thread was already about a Muslim - they didn't turn it into one about Muslims. Ben and others always attack Christians in threads which are nothing to do with Christians.

How in the world is it "picking on Christians" to point out that they (like Muslims, Hindus, Jews, etc.) don't all follow their faiths to the letter?

Ben doesn't attack Christians; he is a Christian, as an Irishman if not as a practitioner. We have an ongoing conversation here, and single event stories about Muslims take on the character of a general criticism of Muslims as the collection grows.

It is to that point that the comment is directed.

It's not relevant, and it's an attempt to turn this thread into one about Christians on your part. You didn't mention Hindus or Jews before. Why not just mention them instead of Christians? You always use Christians to score some kind of stupid point on this forum.

It is to that point that the comment is directed.

Ben is not a Christian at all, and he is disparaging about Christians. It's absurd to say that an Irish man must be a Christian. In any case, Ben is not Irish.

I used Christians because I assume that most of us here are more familiar with Christians than we are with Muslims, or Hindus or Jews. For most members here, growing up with Christians or as a Christian was our version of normal.

No. This thread was already about a Muslim - they didn't turn it into one about Muslims. Ben and others always attack Christians in threads which are nothing to do with Christians.

Ben doesn't attack Christians; he is a Christian, as an Irishman if not as a practitioner.  We have an ongoing conversation here, and single event stories about Muslims take on the character of a general criticism of Muslims as the collection grows.

It is to that point that the comment is directed.

I'm definitely culturally Christian -- raised in a Christian culture and familiar with Christian values and conventions.

So you think that Christianity is a culture? I hope you remember that next time you slag Christians off whilst defending "cultures" generally.

Yes, I know that Christianity is a culture.  I will always believe that, regardless of the circumstances.

You need to learn the difference between "slagging" and analyzing.  It is not slagging to use a mainstream religion, of which all are familiar, as a measure or comparison for evaluating fair treatment of all religions. It's duplicity to criticize Islam for something that occurs equally in Christianity.

When someone uses Christianity in a negative way in order to comment favourably on matters pertaining to Islam, I consider that to be slagging off Christians, especially when the people doing it are duplicitous enough to never mention Islam in a negative way when posting in a thread which is criticising Christianity, as you have implied they should.

Well, like most religions, it's a component of a culture in actuality. American Christianity, Egyptian Christianity and Korean Christianity are obviously rather different cultures, but linked by religion -- much like Muslims in Saudi Arabia have a rather different culture from Muslims in Pakistan or Indonesia.

How is it using Christianity negatively to say that not all Christians follow every word of the Bible? Do you think they do, and that I'm slandering them or something?

I'm truly bewildered that you're so upset.

It's a negative thing to say in a thread which is not about Christians, plus you never criticise Muslims for the same thing. Why is that?

It's a very informative thing to say, and an excellent way to put it. If you were challenging someone on what you considered a very negative belief, wouldn't you borrow on your mutual ideas and experiences to convey your thoughts?

Christianity is not a sacrosanct notion...or if it is, that's a very dangerous belief.

Not that, to me, sounds like anti-reason zealotry. Are you one of those old southern Italian women who go to church 8-times a day, and wear black over white robes?



I used to date their daughters, and they followed us around relentlessly.

Now you're being bigoted - assuming I'm old and Italian just because I point out Ben's bigotry. You're also assuming I'm a Catholic.

You mean you don't like being pulled up for your double standards. OK.
