Saw a guy in Costco wearing a shirt proclaiming that Mohammed Sucks. He was also wearing some kind of a naval veteran something or other hat.

 

I'd like to send him to Auschwitz circa 1943 to see how much he likes the generalization of a culture. It really bothers me that some people viciously hate Muslims because of a small group of assholes. It's akin to hating Jews because of stupid shit that the Hasids do. 

 

I have many Muslim friends, (some of you have met one of them...the Paki) and they are all some of the most gracious, hospitable people I have come across culturally speaking.

 

Discuss.

not much to discuss.  myopic ignorance shows it's face all too often in our society.

It's the image that's burning in my head. I'm looking to evoke feelings and discussion. Is it just because I live in an uber conservative area?

Sorry, I wasn't sure...though I was hoping a discussion in family would be possible on this topic.

Better get a "Jesus Sucks" shirt for the next time you hit Costco.

 

Seriously, what a dick.

Interestingly, I have spoken with various veterans who firmly believe Muslims hate "us" and want to kill all of "us."

 

I do not know how such arises, propaganda on both sides?  Corrupt leaders?

Throw in a little religious intolerance and I think you've got the recipe right.

Is religious intolerance inherent or learned?

Very much learned/taught, I think.

 

How else do you end up with people who worship the same God killing one another in his name?

I think you need to fold in a generous pinch of ignorance to make that recipe complete.

Both, really.  When you think about it, ALL ignorance is inherent.  Intolerance and bigotry is learned.  Together, it's a bad combination.
