    And I suppose you will say it’s okay for the radical Muslims to do the same thing.

    He doesn’t read much of the Bible. All he does is say “Jesus is your savior!” over and over. He doesn’t come off as a preacher. He’s more like an evangelical caricature.

    He reminds of a joke my father told. A fellow woke up in the night and saw “G P” on the ceiling. He thought it met “Go Preach.”

    He goes to a real minister and tells him about his vision.

    “Okay my son. Show me your inspiration,” minister says.

    The visionary stands up and rants for ten minutes. At the end the preacher says, “No my son, when you saw “G P” it didn’t mean “Go Preach, it met Go Plow.”

    No we are saying that only one religion in the history of the world has not started a war.

    nope, it's not ok for any religious nuts to do those things, but I suppose you think it's ok if Christians do those things

    Theists can be some of the most violent, is what I said... Muslims are theists, just like Christians are theists

    there are a lot of good Christians and Muslims out there, and of course bad ones of both throughout history too

    No he was arrested because he refused a police order to move on and then to leave because the Police were afraid that violance might break out.

    How could you possibly know this? Are the police pro Muslum?

    This is the latest update and includes a good summary of what actually happened.
    https://www.seattletimes.com/seattl...et-preacher-twice-arrested-by-seattle-police/


    From what I can tell, if the protesters are liberal and violent, threaten violence, assaults those who have differing opinions, then the police will arrest the non violent protester and prohibit his speech and allow the violent protesters to continue spewing their speech unoffended.

    The police should arrest those who commit assault Not the person who is the victim of assault.

    They are not pro Hamas. That's another often repeated lie. They are pro Palestinian. There is a difference.

    Some of them at the Columbia University demonstrations are openly saying "We are Hamas." It's on tape. The Jewish students are now afraid to go to classes because of the threats.

    If they are not American citizens who are here to study, they should be deported.

    I agree. All student protesters should have their educational visas revoked.
