A Comment on a Comment
In a posted comment on Muslim fanatics, by a man named Eric, I was asked: "So how do we reason with them so they will stop trying to kill us."

To successfully "reason" with others requires others to "listen to reason." In the case of today’s religious terrorists, they can hear nothing "reasonable" in arguments for "tolerance" of other religious beliefs. That means, no matter the reasoning offered, the Muslim extremists will not suddenly decide "to live and let live." Nor will killing them in large numbers discourage others from joining their "cause," because devout fanatics are truly not afraid to die, while performing their "God-given duty" to cleanse the earth of "unbelievers."

In short, the "reasonable" idea of promoting tolerance of all religions has never even begun to produce worldwide tolerance! So, it isn’t tolerance we must strive for! What we urgently need is a greatly improved knowledge of the God that Jews, Christians and Muslims have been fighting about throughout their mutual history. That "improved understanding" is the only reasoning that could "move" the terrorists—but it would also have to move YOU. Are you ready for that, or do you think that only the terrorists should improve their beliefs?

Since I'm not trying to kill anyone based on my beliefs, why do I need to improve my "understanding?" I just need to make sure my country defends me from these wacko extremists!!!
