'Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and then you shall find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.'

Telling muslims that their religion teaches violence will make them angry. In defense they burn churches and cause violent protests to prove such assumptions are incorrect.

Does that make sense?

Islam lacks self control. Radical extremists continue to brainwash others with visions of paradise and glory. This fictional holy war only spreads violence, intolerance, sexism and death. The majority of Islam feels discriminated against by governments, liberal media, and the bad name they get from suicidal martyrs.

I think its hard to be Muslim now. Islam is a changing religion, and it isn't what it was 1,000 years ago.

copy cat

I'm taking a page from Branden, there are some things that must go:

1. Lame 3 page essays that my professors require every two weeks. As if I didn't have enough spare time between classes and work. All my time is spent reading and writing papers on politcal ideology or some place where this guy blew up. It often seems like busy work to me. The only thing I can think of is that my professors want to weed out the weak first year students.

2. Cold apartment. My apartment got really cold over the weekend and the heater isn't hooked up yet. My landlords went to Hawaii, and haven't come back yet so me and my wife are freezing. Well. Not me. Just her. I don't want to think about winter yet.

3. People that argue with me at work. I'm just following the rules buddy- I hate to be the bearer of bad news. People think that if they raise their voices or whine enough they can get away with murder. At a financial institution we have rules and regulations, when you signed your membership agreement you agreed to all the fees and crap that you got because you can't manage your money at all.

4. Traffic in Lehi. I've found a way to get around it, but seriously- if it takes 10 minutes to get through town there is obiously something wrong with transportation between Eagle Mtn, and all the other towns out there. I have to take alternate routes just to get around to work and school. Come on!

5. Big ugly dudes in Hummers. Really... everyone knows that they are over compensating for something else...
