“What’s the difference between Palin and Muslim fundamentalists? Lipstick”

Wow. The author proves that Palin is actually no different than a fundamentalist muslim. Except that sane people know there is a world of difference. Too bad there were no sane editors at Salon to smack some sense into this dipstick and keep him from making a fool of himself.

That is SO true... I’ve learned a lot myself - and it’s made me look back and examine so many things in my own life, and not just from my own childhood either! LOL

Ahhh... this hit piece says it all.... the liberal elitists are really, really out of touch with the “Great American Fly-over”. Like I have said before, hitting rock bottom isn’t enough for you guys, you just keep digging. It is obvious that either Lefties didn’t learn from McGovern... and/or they have stopped teaching that part of history in those lalala classrooms at those lalala universities....

not just from my own childhood

it's more about your role as a "child of God" that you get the training in when you become a parent

The real difference between Protestant and moslem fundamentalists is that the former never seem to benefit from multiculturalism (at least not if they're white).

Liberals only criticize moslem fundamentalists in order to condemn Fundamentalist Protestants. Other than that they're a cherished part of the family of the "oppressed."

Palin has a right to her religious beliefs, as do fundamentalist Muslims who agree with her on so many issues of social policy. None of them has a right, however, to impose their beliefs on others by capturing and deploying the executive power of the state.

Oh, right. Supposed to get it implemented via the 9 robed unelected "imposers" instead. It's all about retaining the right to kill babies. KILL, KILL, KILL. Leftism is a mental retardation. These posters should change the name from Salon to Colon.

I think the burkas Palin wears, as a fundamentalist muslim, are much nicer than those worn by the other fundamentalist muslim women. They need to follow her lead. So does Juan Cole.

This is the next tactic, and the one that might stick.

Here on FR, there are a few people who are anti Palin for the very reasons mentioned. Never mind most of the points are bogus and the librarian one is not as it is being represented.

People who claim to be conservatives that are not pro-Palin are RINO’s in drag.

A guy at work also used that one on me. I said that using that logic, every form of government is a theocracy (since even the avowed atheist states have an ideology that is a form of non god religion).

This form of thinking will lead to purges one of these days.

>>>Juan Cole became a member of the Bahá’í Faith in 1972 as an undergraduate at Northwestern, and the religion later became a focus of his academic research. He resigned from the Bahai Faith in 1996 after disputes with Bahá’í leadership concerning the Bahá’í system of administration.<<<

No wonder that the article has the tone and rancor it has. Baha’is are, by far, some of the kindest, fairest, best centered and most decent human beings I’ve ever met. Their religious views might be called Quaker with a Middle Eastern twist. The Baha’i writings tell believers that the United States a shining light for the world to follow. The Baha’is are tolerant to a fault, and explictly expound that we are one human family. The administrative structure of the Baha’i faith closely resembles a New England town meeting, and believers vote in representatives to handle the affairs of national assemblies.

The fact that this writer couldn’t put up with that tells me all I need to know about him.

There are quite a few on this site who don't like her, and many who don't only because she is a very committed pro life Christian.

While I am still not very excited about McCain being the President, I got to hand it to him, Palin was an excellent pick. This has fractured the DNC and the GOP elites.

The ones here that do not like her are the blue bloods and RINO’s, screw them all.

My hope is they all move to the Democrat party where they belong.

They have been hyping this on PMSNBC.

What's the big liberal panic here? There isn't one issue of national importance that has anything to do with prehistoric monkey bones. Unless they want the Department of the Interior to try to find Bigfoot.

"Conservative Christian = Extremist?
Yup, the Rabid Left has gone completely off the rails."

This isn't new. This has been the essence of the American left since about 1830. The war has always been against the gospel of Jesus Christ. All else is just a smoke screen.
