Who? Anybody who has ever heard Obongo speak about anything; his wont is to twist everything to suit his purposes.
SCoaMF:Quote“Jefferson and John Adams had their own copies of the Koran,” he said. “Benjamin Franklin wrote, that even if the Mufti of Constantinople were to send a missionary to preach to us, he would find a pulpit at his service.”
Put into perspective:QuoteAnd it being found inconvenient to assemble in the open air, subject to its inclemencies, the building of a house to meet in was no sooner proposed, and persons appointed to receive contributions, but sufficient sums were soon received to procure the ground and erect the building, which was one hundred feet long and seventy board, about the size of Westminster Hall; and the work was carried on with such spirit as to be finished in a much shorter time than could have been expected. Both house and ground were vested and in trustees, expressly for the use of any preacher of any religious persuasion who might desire to say something to the people at Philadelphia; the design in building not being to accommodate any particular sect, but the inhabitants in general; so that even if the Mufti of Constantinople were to send a missionary to preach Mohammedanism to us, he would find a pulpit at his service.
From that sentence, I gather Muzzies must have been as popular then as they are now.
Owning such texts obviously doesn't mean I "endorse" Islam, the Koran or their worldview. I does mean I want to make accurate statements about same, so that any opposed to what i do, do not attempt to undermine my statements on the basis that they're false or misleading (which they'll do anyway - but at least I can cite my sources rather than simply say "it's my opinion.:")
Of course not.
I have a copy of the koran - along with Hitler's Mein Kampf and Alinksy's Rules for Radicals. Just owning evil books doesn't make one evil. I prefer to know my enemies.
From my readings those guys read the Koran as an aid in knowing thy enemy. They got the proper understanding and broke out the hardware to deal with them.
It seems we go through periods of really terrible web browsers. Currently we are in one of those periods. All the majors have major problems, either by design, or lack of debugging. All of them are terribly bloated (though that isn't only a browser problem) Some of other terrible periods was about 1996 and 2002ish. 1996 was due mostly to microsoft playing catch up by dumping the turd of a browser of internet exploder on the world. 2002 when security was becoming a problem (largely due again to microsoft lack of security).
I wish adobe flash and most java scripting would vanish from the internet. Both drive me nuts at times. Neither work right, and are worse when they are used in bad ways (like ads). On both old and new computers, any os and browser it seems. Even brings a computer with 8 gb ram to its knees.
