"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have always been tyrants and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible. But in the end, they always fall. Think of it, always." -------Gandhi
The CC is a big backer of the Republican party. You have to give him credit here for standing up to the goofballs on the far right.
These commercials are superfine because they pay for the production costs of putting CHRIS MOTHERFUCKING BENOIT on my GODDAMN TV SCREEN! I will GO GREYHOUND! I am thinking OUTSIDE THE BUN! – Dean Rasmussen 8/1/2002 Smackdown Workrate Report
Now, I don't think there's any dispute that the people responsible for my examples weren't representing Christianity... rather, they used it to commit anti-Christian acts. So who says people can't misrepresent Islam? That's what I think the terrorists are doing. It's been shown that some of the schools that teach these terrorists expound an extremely warped version of the Koran.

I agree with phd, silly logic. Religion and/or ideas are all in how they're interpreted. If one person decides, "Jesus wants me to kill all people who eat any type of food starting with the letter Q, I will do His will, as it states in Revelation," it don't make it so. Are all Germans Nazis? Are all Catholic Irish people terrorists? Are all French people obnoxious, uppity smokers (hmm, bad example, I think they might be).
Also, in my opinion, Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell have the same credibility as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

A plea of no lo contendre is almost always reserved for misdemeanor cases - it's designed as a time saver, so that a person can just essentially pay a fine and be done with his court appearances. The judge acted well within her discretion.
