And you claim that the Bible calls for genocide.
Where did I claim that?
Not that it doesn't. In fact, pretty much the whole of Exodus is about murdering more or less innocent civilians and stealing their land.
You claim that the Americans call for fighting the Whore of Babylon when they go to Afghanistan
You ever been to FreeRepublic?
You claim that the Catholic Church had a political profile in France
I claimed that the RCC had a political profile in Europe. France has been reasonably successful in suppressing it. But the RCC is a transnational organisation, so if the suppression effort stops it'll just infest France again.
You claim that the Canon Law originated with the Old testament
No, I claimed that the Old Testament contained religious laws that the New Testament acknowledges. Which is true.
I accepted your correction of the relevant theological terminology - a correction that is irrelevant to the substance.
You are ignorant of Wahhabist overseas expansion (you needed a citation)
You lie. I demanded a citation for Iranian overseas expansion. Which you have still not provided.
You claim that Sharia is not an integral component of jurisprudence in North Africa - even though it's inscribed in Egypt's constitution
It isn't an integral part of jurisprudence in Egypt, outside certain limited areas such as family law (where religious jurisprudence is not uncommon even in nominally democratic countries - see, e.g., California's Prop H8).
You claim that Ottoman rule was intolerant of Christianity in the 15th Century - and that this intolerance has NO RELEVANCE to modern times (like 85 years ago is ancient history)
You claimed that the genocides of 85 years ago were Islamic genocides against Christians, when in fact they were nationalist genocides against what was perceived as foreign nationals. You also studiously ignore the fact that core members of the European Union committed genocides orders of magnitude worse at the same time, and are still in flat denial of this fact.
You claim that propaganda is behind American people's belief that Iran will nuke Israel as soon as it has the bomb... when all you need to do is listen to Ahmedi Nejad's ranting about the destruction of Israel.
Actually, Ahmedinejad has never called for the destruction of Israel, as anybody who follows Middle East politics even casually knows perfectly well. Unless, of course, they're relying on the American propaganda press for their information.
Friends come and go. Enemies accumulate.
