  1. Absolutely. Climate Change isn't stopping, and any efforts we make without getting the rest of the world to join in won't make the blindest bit of difference. But people like to think they are making a difference, so if they catch a bus tomorrow instead of taking the car, let them feel good about themselves. It won't last.
  2. Hey, my hometown made the news. Counter extremism? We ain't got no counter extremism. We don't need no counter extremism. I don't have to show you any stinkin' counter extremism! https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/jun/20/six-pull-out-bradford-literature-festival-counter-extremism-funding
  3. I was just trying Michael's idea, but it really doesn't soar. And it made him go all anagrammatic. I hope he gets better.
  4. I prefer Sudoku, but whatever turns your crank...
  5. There was a Muslim in Starbucks in Red Deer today. He got a latte.
  6. I do. But I wouldn't anyway. If you're going to be an absolutist and hold that a person has the right to choose whether or not to cross the road, and whether or not to burn that blasphemer, then there's not much I can say. A person has to know right from wrong to start with. You didn't misunderstand me.
  7. 1)Moderate Islam exists. (Often those who are outspoken about it are greeted with horror and revulsion from many on the left, as well as those inside Islam) An even greater number of "I don't give a toss" Islam exists, I'm sure. Islamic in name only, don't go to prayers, have bacon every now and then, couldn't care less about Sharia. All religions have a lot of people like that. But that's not what we're talking about. Why would we? It would get boring real fast. 2) Not me. I'm not anti immigration and I don't care who comes in. As long as anyone who breaks the law is kicked out again, I'm okay with it. And before you ask, yes, after 35 years here, I still put myself in that category.
  8. We're obviously at cross purposes here. I said: "Man, any religion that forces you to choose it must be the shits, eh? " Not my most articulate offering, I'll grant you, but opposition to theocracy seems to come out loud and clear.
  9. Ah. So it's okay then? I live in a country that won't let me drink and drive, so I can't complain about a country that won't allow homosexuals to live.
  10. Anything that dictates behaviour in anyone but themselves as individuals. By a week Tuesday!
  11. 1) That's the thing about Islam. It's bad in a big way. Entire countries run by religious law. Death to blasphemers, homosexuals, apostates, on the books. Utterly insane! A few folks planning a dozen strong march under a confederate flag is worthy of note on an individual basis, but it's just not the same thing. And very few people come to their defense. With Islam, it seems the people who are willing to forget the very issues they care about most are everywhere. It makes threads interesting and fun. 2) Not change their culture. Change what they do. Their culture will change by itself then. Do you think white supremacist have an excuse by dint of their culture? 3) See 1)
