Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue - Queen Elizabeth II

I am not angry, Eurogreen. I hope you aren't either.  It's just: you are so utterly wrong. I don't understand your missionary zeal when you are confronted with religion, that makes you hurt people (Jake is a worse offender there, though). I think you are causing a lot of political damage this way, too.

There's a phrase I heard, "the professionally offended" that comes to mind. I think it was Charles Pierce. No, it's common. from a google:

Troll-rated for extreme insensitivity (if not deliberate provocation).

Two users reach a degree of personal reconciliation after a long and acrimonious debate (that you set off), and you append this stink-bomb?

How about ormondotvos, "professionally trollish"?

What a weird idea to turn up at this point after the thread had turned quiet, Ormondotvos.

I should make something clear to you: I have a lot of respect for my two (main) opponents of this thread. From other threads I know them as people who roughly share my views of what a better world would be, and who possess an astonishing amount of knowledge to argue their point. That's why I am playing them so hard on this occasion, when they are supporting policies that in my view constitute an enormous injustice and inhumanity.

Now to you. You dropped a number of comments last night saying that you are opposed to religion as such, that you find Islam "dangerous" (and more so than other religions), that you consider the religious as mentally ill (followed by a disclaimer that does no succeed in making that comment tolerable). I see. There is no reason to engage you in debate then, because you and I are on different sides of the fence anyway.
