That would rather be like me moving to live next to an abattoir only to proceed to tell the owners that I think they should farm vegetables instead.
The comments on the video are quite frightening, and there are a considerable collection of comments which 'praise jebus' for showing the muslims who's boss...and numerous comments about where 'different races of people belong,'.
The most compelling comment is: "that's right, back from where they came from in the first place, The Middle East!
They're infesting our lands with their idiotic islamic backward ways, & NOT respecting our cultures or ways, as they try to breed us out of existence in OUR OWN lands!!ï»¿"
...it's exactly what invading Christians, from Europe, did to the native Americans, so there are a lot of uneasy almost hypocritical undertones.
This whole situation is just so damn stupid... Muslims hate pigs. SO WHY DID THEY BUY LAND NEXT TO A FUCKING PIG FARM?! It just makes no fucking sense!
And now that guy has to move? It's just as you said, they do expect you to bend over backwards.
Agreed. Unfortunately a great many people are, rather than regarding that as a stupid decision on the part of the man who made the purchase- and manipulative nasty beavhiour, using the anecdote to justify extreme and racist vitriol. [one woman in the comments uses this instance to produce an argument for dehumanising mexicans...mexicans]
There is a tiny bit of truth to that though. The quran calls for a rather aggressive spread of islam on "enemy territory". Why do you think they already have 60 mosques there? I'm not buying the whole "we want to build a community center" thing.
But yeah, those comments are ridiculous...
I think the attempts of religious communities to spread themselves are pretty obvious in most religions, yes.
Texan missionaries have recently started arriving in the UK and the Czech republic etc to 'save our atheistic European souls'.
Send them to either Dortmund or Bochum, Germany please. I would like to have a word with them. And by word I mean booting them back to Texas.
...I've also noticed a LOT of Christians have this perception that animals are nothing more than biological robots that humans are free to kill, abuse and torture as they wish. My opinions about animals and how they should be treated always made me a laughing stalk among other so-called Christians.
I find it quite confusing that, according to a large number of Christians, only Christians who agree with their ethical views are 'real Christians'.
Why are they the fake Christians, rather than you?
In my view you're all Christians, and some of you are nice people and some of you are nasty people- but this doesn't mean you are or are not Christians.
This is one of the main reasons I despise the sand-scum religions, and the feeble-minded brutes that created them.I've also noticed a LOT of Christians have this perception that animals are nothing more than biological robots that humans are free to kill, abuse and torture as they wish.

That is a very good question and I am curious about that as well. The others are never "true christians"... It's pretty silly in my opinion :T

People wonder why humans are so cruel to other species? You just answered the question.
You suggested, in another thread, that eugenics and the systematic disposal of disabled people were preferable.
Why should anyone give a flying fuck what you think about cruelty?
Because if they're of the same intelligence, and neither has harmed anyone, there's no intelligent reason that they shouldn't be treated equally like shit. But one is treated like royalty, while the other like a cheap plaything.
This 'order' is a sacred cow for so many people, and the main reason it is perceived to exist is because of ancient mythology.
It's depressing how frequent this claim is voiced, over even trivial things. This is the second time I've read the claim today, on a forum. First time someone was insisting that any christians who weren't literal creationists weren't 'true'.
