    My fiancee and I watched this video this weekend --

    http://www.nationallampoon.com/index.php/72-virgins

    I thought it was stupid, sure, but I laughed during it, pretty hard actually. She did not think it was funny at all, quite the opposite. She seems to think this type of material is causing racism in America and creating a larger divide in our country. I think she's crazy and I'm marrying the woman. What do you think?

    The 72 virgins thing is about Muslims, not Arabs. They are not the same thing, just as Caucasians and christianity are not the same thing.

    Is she a Muslim?

    Hm. Reminds me of the time I made a post highly critical of Islam on another board and was accused of racism. I pointed out that Islam is a religion, not a race, to which the response was that most Muslims are Arabs. When I pointed out that that is precisely the logic used by supporters of racial profiling, I didn't get a response.

    Hmmm

    Since when did Americans care to not offend those Muslim "Hyphenated Americans" let alone invite them to settle here? You're out of your mind.

    fivedollarbill is posting this same post all over the political boards and hasn't responded to any of them that I'm aware of.

    He probably just wants to know whether or not he should marry the woman. ;)

    Its a shame that a person have to go from board to board with
    the same old mess. However I am sure that he received many
    replies, and believe it or not some people is willing to bug the
    hell out of others with the same old tired mess.

    Lipmonkey, I see you are up on the game, and good looking out.

    We must not forget that everyone who signs onto these boards
    is functioning with a full deck upstairs, and the ones who don't
    have a full deck...one can tell by their actions through their posts.
