With all the "religion of peace" talk, I think it's important to acknowledge when members of two different religions stand together despite theological differences.

Human chain formed to protect Christians during Lahore mass

LAHORE: The Muslim and Christian communities came together during Sunday mass in a show of solidarity in Lahore.

Hand in hand as many as 200-300 people formed a human chain outside the St Anthony’s Church adjacent to the District Police Lines at the Empress Road, in a show of solidarity with the victims of the Peshawar church attack two weeks back, which resulted in over a 100 deaths. The twin suicide attack on All Saints church occurred after Sunday mass ended and is believed to be the country’s deadliest attack on Christians.

Or this quote from Rick Warren:

Shildog, what a silly comment.  Even the most harshest critics of Islam understand that a majority of muslims are not bad people. 


Is it Spring Training yet?

Right? I'd say the number of "nice Muslims" is probably around 26 people

Not bad for a country of 180 million.

Please, that is silly unless you think criticism is the same as calling an entire group 100% evil.

What about calling an entire group 100% silly, like Christians? :P

It doesn't surprise me at all. Most of the people in these countries are sick of them and want to get on with their lives. The social media generation is different and will eventually try to squash the intolerant asshats who give them all a bad name.

Terrific news.  Let's hope there's more and more of this.  And I hope they start calling out the terrorists who do not necessarily represent their beliefs.

@  Angels#1Fan : (29 April 2016 - 02:33 PM) @swinghard Do you root for the Tigers, live in Alaska and make a 6 figure income?
@  swinghard : (28 April 2016 - 07:44 PM) @Chuckster70 Futhermore I don't think Trout's first 10 seasons will be as good as Pujols first 10. Pujols was a killer in his prime. Trout is a daisy.
@  swinghard : (28 April 2016 - 07:42 PM) @Chuckster70 No, he phoned it in. He was swinging no matter what. That's called phoning it in. He didn't care about the pitch. If you reply the video he's started swinging as the ball is released that's what makes it obvious. Face it Trout doesn't have the Killer Instinct to really be a feared player. Respected yes. Feared? Not so much.
@  Chuckster70 : (28 April 2016 - 09:34 AM) He struck out on a good slider with two strikes. He didn't give away his last at bat. One more idiotic post like your rant below and you're outta here. #Troll
@  swinghard : (27 April 2016 - 10:15 PM) Today the team was winning in the bottom of the 8th, so Trout decides he'll give away his last at bat, denying Pujols a chance to drive in some extra runs. Just because the team is winning is not an excuse to give away an at-bat, I don't care if the team is winning by 10 runs, you still play the game right. He swung at a 2-1 pitch 1 foot outside like I a guy that was ready to go home. If he takes that obvious ball it's 3-1 then he either gets a fastball to hit or walks, and either way, wouldn't it be nice to see Pujols get a chance to hit a bomb, give the fans another great memory? Instead the last memory of Trout in the game is him striking out looking like a fool. He got lucky with a home run earlier, but that's no excuse to phone it in just because you want to go home. If he was as good as Bryce Harper, he wouldn't be satisfied with a 1-4 game, he would actually try to get a 2nd home run or give Pujols a chance to pile it on. Trout just doesn't have the killer instinct it takes to be a world champion. He carried the same attitude into the postseason in his so called "MVP" season when he refused to take his bat off his shoulders when the team needed him most. He'll never be as good as Barry Bonds, and I don't think he has the same drive to be the best that Bryce Harper does.

@  cezero : (21 April 2016 - 06:00 PM) Harper has proven he can play really well for a season. It's idiotic to claim you'd build a team around him over Trout at this point in time. Another consistently amazing year from Harper would make this a different conversation.
@  VariousCrap : (21 April 2016 - 02:41 PM) Harper is as awesome as Trout.  You haters are idiots.
@  hangin n wangin : (21 April 2016 - 08:37 AM) I would take Trout too. But I wouldn't call someone who wants to take Harper an idiot.
@  Chuckster70 : (20 April 2016 - 10:04 AM) While Harper is better than Trout out of the gate, and a little better last season, I'd still pick Trout over Harper today if I had to build a team around one player.
@  cezero : (14 April 2016 - 06:58 PM) some idiot on MLB Network just said he'd build a team around Harper over Trout.

@  Ace_Richards : (11 April 2016 - 02:52 PM) Beards are OK I suppose, It's just not my thing. As far as tattoos go they're just disfiguring. I really like the look of skin on a woman.
@  m0nkey : (11 April 2016 - 02:24 PM) How many times will the average person poop in a year?
@  Wallerrrr : (10 April 2016 - 01:58 PM) On average, a man’s beard will grow 5.5 inches per year.
@  daygloman : (08 April 2016 - 03:21 PM) I am! I've got, and HAVE BOTH! Well, a beard occasionally! But it's white when I grow it out!
@  Kody Mac : (08 April 2016 - 10:51 AM) What's wrong with beards and tattoos? Are you 50 or older?
@  Ace_Richards : (06 April 2016 - 11:37 AM) I'll be happy when the fad in baseball of the huge beards, and full body tattoos fade into history.

@  Wallerrrr : (26 March 2016 - 10:39 AM) The smell of books makes some people need to poop. The Mariko Aoki phenomenon consists of the urge to defecate while visiting a bookstore. Originating in Japan, it is named after the woman who first publicized such an urge.

He played the 1952 season with the Los Angles Angels, where he is best remembered for his showboating than his playing ability. For example, after hitting one home run, he slid into second base, cart wheeled to third base, then crawled to home plate
