"Because Islam, the religion, and Muslims in general, are no more responsible for acts of Islamist terrorism, regardless of how many of them there are, than Christianity and Christians in general are for acts of Christian terrorism, regardless of how many of them there are."

Let's see. So far we have the conservative OP trying to smear all of a religion with the actions of two people, followed by a few other noted conservative posters piling on for good measure. Then when multiple non-conservative posters point out illogic (and bigotry) of doing so, none of the conservative posters agree that indeed the OP was wrong or used poor bigoted logic. Instead the either attacked the non-conservative posters or mounted the feeble defense of the crying 5-year old child : "Someone else is doing it too".

And anyone wonders why conservatives have such a hard time attracting minority votes?

Ah, right, it must just be the free stuff. It has nothing to do with not feeling welcome.

There is a lesson to be learned here. I have a feeling that not too many are going to get it though because after all according to them, I have nothing to contribute to the board.

Their loss.
