Ethno-Religious Stereotypes and Generalizations
okay. i'm not Catholic. but the more i read about this whole fiasco about his speech, the more pissed off i get. First and foremost, who the hell is the Catholic Church to call someone else violent?! WTF?! that Church is responsible for more bloodshed and murder than any other institution in the world. with the exception, possibly, of islam. Notice the reactions his words have caused in the muslim world. muslims consider Christians to be infidels. do we burn effigies of mohammad in return? do we riot in the streets? no.  sure, we had the crusades, but that was HUNDREDS of years ago. get over it. no, i think the reaction shows the exact, true nature of islam. it is a violent religion born of a violent culture to a violent people. am i stereotyping? damn right, i am. are there moderates in islam. i am sure there are. just as there are extremists in Catholicism. the difference is in the numbers. if i had one real wish, it's be that we had a totally renewable energy source in this country and we could let the Middle East choke on their oil and let them go fuck themselves. i'm a little disappointed in Israel this time around though. Look how they kicked ass in, what 1967? i was hoping for a repeat performance. someday they will learn that ya just don't fuck with the jews. To bad Lebanon was one of the more civil nations over there. I would have picked Syria over Lebanon.

I'm feeling: bitchy bitchy

On the other hand, the vast irony of "The Pope called us violent! KILL THE POPE!!!" is quite amusing isn't it?
