It aint rocket science, my friend

Apparently, like most of the other people on the board, you don't really read much of what he posts. He never ventures very far from the same conspiracy theories and guilt by association rhetoric. It goes into virtually every post on virtually every thread, regardless of the topic or how it relates. The definition of the term is a thought process or pattern that is influenced by a high level of anxiety, to the point of delusion and irrationality. Suggesting that groups of people get together and have dialogue or read books fits the definition of both.
Unless you have been completely unplugged from all forms of media for the last week, you’ve probably seen—or at least have heard or read about—the interview that religion scholar, Reza Aslan, gave on the FoxNews.com webcast
They may find it scandalous for someone to say so, but our secular liberal media are playing favorites with religion. They have a spoiled child, Islam. Journalists see Islam as a bullied, minority faith for brown people. Draw a cartoon of Mohammed with dynamite on his head, and you are the worst kind of trouble-making hater.

I do, too. But Stephen's suggestions and what you and I would consider a fine idea are two different things.

Or the other hand, drop a cross into a jar of urine and they'll champion you as a great "artist" or showing the courage to challenge the culture. However, don't you dare question anything or ask anything that someone, somewhere might perceive to be "slanderous" or disparaging to Islam. You're just a bigot if you do.
