Just like the bible is to the Christian doctrine, the Koran is a piece of the Islamic way of life. Both preach the same thing "Do unto others as you'd want done onto you." I bet if I posted a t-shirt that insulted Christians or Americans, you guys would be outraged. That shirt is not only insulting towards Muslims (there are fanatics in every religion, a few does not always mirror the beliefs of many. Remember Timothy McVey?) but insulting to any free-thinking person who believes that all people should be treated with an equal respect unless they personally show me otherwise. Fanatics do the wrong things that you guys get up in arms over, the Koran does not tell them to.
Zephyr: Besides Wyzcrak and his godly voice; the kind of voice that you will expect to say "Zephyr, I need you to build an ark at Marine Start, with room for two of every structure so that I may turret spam for 40 days and 40 nights" that is.
Squeak:Sometimes I'm awed by zibs genius. Then I remember he's Canadian and I feel significantly less threatened.
Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.
i find it so funny how when other countries/nationalites/Religions burn the american flag make comments about the USA, and doing ne thing to stop democracy...they have no problem with doing those things but if an american christian or not even a christian...an american makes a comment or does something so small everyone makes it sound like we are killing them and we are so ignorant.....does that make sence...
if i have offended ne one in ne way..bummer!
It makes perfect sense. I imagine a muslim community with similar posts in its forums, but all the roles juxtaposed. And in the same place, I imagine there are those who think that that it's in poor taste and only leads to further animosity and misunderstanding.
The point isn't "There are others doing it, so it must be OK." The point is that people who are truly better than those "others doing it" don't follow suit, but rise above it.
