This has nothing to do with terrorists.

Libido: "Psychoanalysis the energy of the sexual drive as a component of the life instinct."

Not sure what that really means to be a libidinal Christian!

Nice blog, though.

I have no idea who Mike is, but if that's his take on things, there's no wonder we are in the mess we are - after all there really is no such thing as a christian or jewish terrorist is there thanks to our re-writing of democracy?

interesting blog, will be back

Libidinal Christian: a Christian who has a sex-drive, and sometimes finds oneself in conflict, spirit against the flesh. Sometimes the conflict is with Christian teachers who claim that women have no sex drive, or very little.

Thanks for visiting.

The point about terrorism is that the Muslim faith rewards terrorism, and Mike said in an editorial that American Muslims should be more outraged against acts of terrorism.

I totally disagree with the statement that all terrorists are Muslims.

American settlers were terrorists to Native Americans and at times, vice-versa.

Israel has done it's share to terrorize Palestinians and vice versa.

Nazi's were terrorists. Ku Klux Klan terrorize people, even today.

There are many people who view the US as a terrorist country because of the war.

Any one of us can be a terrorist if we are deliberately cruel, violent or threatening to other people.

I disagree with some of the commenters as to what makes someone a terrorist. Being nasty or cruel doesn't cut it. Terrorism is attempting to achieve goals not by military victory, but by attacking civilian morale. When civilians no longer wish to fight they allow their government to capitulate to the terrorists, regardless of their actual strength.

In this sense, not all terrorists are Muslims, but most are. The US is certainly not a terrorist state, nor were the Nazis or the Israelis. That's just squishy post-modernism.

I am not a terrorist... just wanted to clarify that.

Thanks for your comments. I view the term terrorism as one used only to describe the acts that have been perpetrated by Islamo-fascists. It has never been used to describe those other radical groups, so, in that sense, all terrorists are Muslims.I hope that makes more sense.

This was sort of implied in Mike Gallegher's editorial.

Oh, Kev, thanks for clarifying.....
