    In countries that have secular governments like Turkey that doesn't seem to be the problems. Turks drink alcohol and produce a lot of wine and spirits of which the most popular is Raki.

    When does the insanity stop?

    Raymond Ibrahim: Saudi Grand Mufti Calls for "Destruction of All Churches in Region" - Jihad Watch

    [QUOTE=bogart;192249]Saudi Arabia allows Christians to enter the country as foreign workers for temporary work, but does not allow them to practice their faith openly.

    Christians and other non-Muslims are prohibited from entering the cities of Mecca and Medina, Islam's holiest cities.

    Currently there are no official churches in Saudi Arabia of any Christian denomination

    The percentage of Saudi Arabian citizens who are Christians is officially zero, as Saudi Arabia forbids religious conversion from Islam (Apostasy) and punishes it by death (Capital punishment in Saudi Arabia)./QUOTE]

    Islam, the religion of hypocrisy.
    Like us, but we don't like you.
    Join us, or we will kill you.
    We can burn your holy books, but we will kill you if you burn ours.
    Leave our mosques alone, while we burn your churches.

    Islam per se doesn't matter. The problem is that the 'Arab street' has lost respect for the United States.

    How about ignoring religion if you have no belief in a god? Kind of like ignoring football results and related gossip if you are not interested in football (a kind of religion).

    It's not possible to respect a religion when it doesn't make sense to you personally, so better to side-step it, and not waste your time thinking about it IMO.

    If people want to meet up for worship in a building, let them get on with it. Same as letting me go to a pub and enjoy a beer and pork scratchings (a traditional pub snack in England) with friends without being harassed.

    I don't have an issue with any religion as long as participants don't use their beliefs to oppress and discriminate against others who are not of their faith. If your religious beliefs are the lack of religious beliefs, there is nothing wrong with that, either.

    I respect people's beliefs. But I also am interested in searching on my own. Therefore to me it is not beneficial to read anything that people write based on their belief unless something new is brought to light.
