Hey look! There are a bunch of people that want to either kill us or enslave us if we don't follow their religion. C'mon! Let's go "deepen our dialog" with them! /sarcasm off

Why don't these mentally blighted dhimmis just stay there and enjoy the comforts of "dialogue" first-hand, forever?

"...It's time we recognized the nature of the conflict. It's total war and we are all involved. Nobody on our side is exempted because of age, gender, or handicap. The Islamofacists have stolen childhood from the world." [FReeper Retief]

"...That the totalitarian force pitted against freedom wears a religious makes this civil war among mankind all the more difficult to engage. Loving freedom as we do, it seems reprehensible to deliberate against a religion. But this is no ordinary religion as it demands absolute obedience of all to their religion at the cost of freedom itself." [FReeper Backtothestreets]

Quakers should really stick to things they are good at. Like oats, for example...

"Want to bet they will leave their Bibles at home to avoid giving "offense"?"

Considering that they consider The Bible to be a facist, racist, sexist and homomphobic document, then the answer to you question is: "What Bibles?"

Let's try this posting thing again...

"Want to bet they will leave their Bibles at home to avoid giving "offense"?"

Considering that they consider The Bible to be a facist, racist, sexist and homophobic document, then the answer to your question is: "What Bibles?"

The sad thing is I reread that before I posted it...

Don't worry - Be happy!
Maybe they have copies of Shuller's "The Be (Happy) Attutudes" or Warren's "The Purpose Driven Life" which I'm sure they think are much more productive.

Ppphhhhtt!

Anyone who contributes to a church organization that gives money to the National Council Of Churches is supporting these dangerous fools. Check the budget of your church and the parent organization before you give them any money.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, being the ever-faithful and ardent supporter of the Religion of Peace, will dutifully offer his guests to accept Islam's Three Choices: convert, submit or die.

He will be so polite an circumspect with his invitation at first that his guests may not even realize that when they are handed Korans as gifts, by their very act of accepting them in that setting means they have indicated they accept the religion it describes.

But as the relationship continues, in time the polite invitation will turn into a very violent demand, like the one that was extended Daniel Pearl.

To engage Islamists in any way is only to invite them to die trying to convert you.

This is the same bunch of quacks that stood by for many decades while the international Communists disposed of humanity by the tens of millions.

Never a word. Not a finger lifted to save a soul.

They are damned.
