    Muslim Brotherhood Egypt

    How do you all feel about it today? Not too long ago, there were supporters of the MB in Egypt claiming they were a peaceful Democratic wing.

    I see Egypt worse off now and soon to get much, much worse. I predict war within a year and the liquidation of all Christians (by evacuation or murder) from Egypt very soon.

    Nothing wrong with genocide as long as it's peaceful.

    Uh guys? No genocide has occurred yet. Yes, there has been violence against Coptic Christians, but not state-sponsored violence. Right now, the president is powerless. It will be interesting to see how this plays out, but as of right now, I see zero factual basis for assuming that the Muslim Brotherhood is automatically going to commit genocide or any other atrocities.

    Turkey has transitioned to a secuular government to one with religious muslims in positions of power and there has been no violence toward ethnic minorities and indeed a general increase in religious tolerance across the board.

    I remember pictures of Christians protecting Muslim protesters. I'm not sure the relations across the country are as tense as some perceive, though there are certainly regional issues.

    By the way, didn't the new president resign from the MB?

    I'm less concerned about his relationship with Christians than I am with his relationship with Iran and Israel.

    I'm more concerned with right wing religious principals becoming law in this country.

    Yes. That's exactly what I meant. We liberal progressive terrorists are joining forces with the godless atheistic anarchist to release all violent criminals from prison too. Lock your doors.

    They already are prohibited.

    Systematic discrimination or invasion of ones personal being are the more controversial issues.

    Do you claim those issues are the result of actions by "right wing religious principals [sic]?"

    Jesus and conservatives teaming up is very frightening indeed.

    Hate to break it to you, but Jesus was a liberal.

    He annoyed the, um, bejebus out of the conservatives of his day.

    I don't understand your question.



    On a different note, your cartoon, while mildly humorous, fails to point out that the government helped provide the clean water, roads for the man's hat, basket, and rod to be delivered, a standard inspection to insurance the rod is usable in the way it's claims to be and probably a host of other goods and services that enabled the man to pull fish out of the water.

    This is the thread as I followed it. RBB made the comment that he's concerned religious principles become law. FLA made the astute observation that laws against murder and theft are based on religious principles. Your post seemed to defend RBB's, in that murder and theft are already prohibited ("already" as if in spite of religious principles.) In the context of religious principles becoming law, you mentioned "systematic discrimination" and "invasion of ones personal being." I asked for clarification to ensure I was reading the context correctly.

    The cartoon also fails to point out the gross inefficiency of government largess and its resultant waste, fraud, and abuse. It also fails to point out the ultimate cost of government services. Nonetheless, it's outrageously funny and extremely instructive.

    Our Copt godparents (Christian Witness) tell a very different story about what's already occurring in Egypt. Perhaps does not meat the definition of genocide, but the prejudice and violence has become far more widespread and acceptable.

    My point was FLA's wording implied that murder and stealing wasn't already illegal.

    Yup I would hate for that thou shall not murder or steal law to get passed
    As far as the codification of prejudice or the invasion of a person's private being goes, I'm referring to laws prohibiting legislatures from passing protective measures for homosexuals and anti-abortion laws. For many (most) supporters christian principles are the motivation for pushing those laws.


    The cartoon also fails to point out the gross inefficiency of government largess and its resultant waste, fraud, and abuse.
    That's a separate issue from what your cartoon addresses.

    It also fails to point out the ultimate cost of government services.

    What is the ultimate cost of government services?

    As is your point regarding the services that government provided

    No one knows the ultimate cost, including the government itself. Which is part of the reason inefficiency is so prevalent.
