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.

@  VariousCrap : (31 August 2015 - 09:42 PM) This team sucks. This team sucks. This team sucks. This team sucks. This team sucks. This team sucks. This team sucks. This team sucks. This team sucks. This team sucks.
@  VariousCrap : (30 August 2015 - 03:34 PM) The question is not whether the Angels will make the playoffs; it is whether they will end the season above or below the .500 mark.
@  Homebrewer : (27 August 2015 - 12:28 PM) GREAT OUTING BY SHOE!!
@  VariousCrap : (24 August 2015 - 03:23 PM) This team is a bunch of pussies with no backbone.  They should be ashamed of themselves.
@  DropOfAnaheim : (24 August 2015 - 10:58 AM) They are about to win 7 in a row Chuck....
@  Chuck Richter : (23 August 2015 - 04:48 PM) I've lost interest in this team. Good thing there's the Hangout and other sports forums. The Angels have bent over and took it up the arse.
@  VariousCrap : (20 August 2015 - 08:27 PM) The suck ass team is back!!!
@  hen3ry : (20 August 2015 - 07:51 PM) That's probably not how he wanted to win it, but grats to GoodTimesGoneBad for going back to back in the prediction game.
@  DropOfAnaheim : (17 August 2015 - 12:02 PM) Our mojo ran out when Featherston hit the DL.
@  VariousCrap : (16 August 2015 - 08:02 PM) This team is still pure shit!!!
@  Kody Mac : (13 August 2015 - 04:49 PM) Well, you know... eventually they'll go on a winning streak.
@  VariousCrap : (12 August 2015 - 08:46 PM) This Team is Shit! Pure Shit!
@  hen3ry : (12 August 2015 - 07:53 PM) Winning streak?  I predict March.  We usually have a good March.
@  VariousCrap : (12 August 2015 - 04:45 PM) When Kody?  When?
@  Kody Mac : (10 August 2015 - 03:25 PM) Angels will go on a winning streak
@  VariousCrap : (02 August 2015 - 08:31 PM) What other team can go from a 17-3 streak to a 1-9 streak? Way to go Angels!!!
@  Ray McKigney : (30 July 2015 - 01:03 PM) TROUT IS BACK!
@  MikeScioscia... : (10 July 2015 - 12:27 PM) I have to imagine Dipoto on his last day at the office probally picked up a guitar & destroyed it on his desk.
@  BaseballMom : (04 July 2015 - 06:10 PM) lol...TeamJedi all the way
@  Hollyw00d : (02 July 2015 - 11:47 AM) Dipoto on his last day: "F you, F you, F you, you're cool, F you I'm out"
@  yk9001 : (02 July 2015 - 10:12 AM) Remember when people used to claim that Arte was a business genius?
@  DropOfAnaheim : (01 July 2015 - 11:37 AM) Sciosciapathic. HE WILL NOT GO AWAY.
@  VariousCrap : (08 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) Just wanted to say: Only the 2015 Angels could follow-up a 5 game winning streak with a 5 game losing streak.
@  Michifan : (02 June 2015 - 02:07 PM) Keep it up Pujols. We need you!
@  Chuck Richter : (01 June 2015 - 11:10 AM) Happy June 1st to you all. Here's to continued good play by the Angels coming off a 4-game sweep of the Tigers. CHEERS
@  Chuck Richter : (28 May 2015 - 09:58 PM) Great job by the Halos all around tonight. LTBU!
@  Ray McKigney : (28 May 2015 - 01:47 PM) Hitting is going down the tunes!
@  Angel Oracle : (27 May 2015 - 08:32 AM) Worst team hitting since 1992, bar none!
@  DropOfAnaheim : (18 May 2015 - 12:04 PM) 2 weeks without an rbi from an Angels #4 hitter.
@  DropOfAnaheim : (13 May 2015 - 10:17 AM) McAnulty vs Colon. Did it ever happen?   Honey Greek Yogurt with Cinnamon Toast Crunch to anyone who can prove this Sumo bout took place.
@  Ray McKigney : (10 May 2015 - 01:19 PM) @SoCalSportsFan: It was locked at least an hour before the game started. Not sure why.
@  SoCalSportsFan : (10 May 2015 - 11:02 AM) Why is the prediction thread locked for 5/10 when it is 30 min before the game?
@  Michifan : (05 May 2015 - 03:52 AM) The whole lack of any offense is killing the team
@  Chuck Richter : (04 May 2015 - 12:19 PM) One wonders how long the Angels will go with Jered Weaver, Chris Iannetta and Matt Joyce. These three are killing the team.
@  JeanneusP : (29 April 2015 - 08:40 PM) The Oakland fan bells and whistles are forcing me to keep my tv volume way down! They are giving me a headache!
@  Homebrewer : (25 April 2015 - 09:34 AM) The ads that control the page and move it up and down are really annoying, Chuck.
@  Hollyw00d : (24 April 2015 - 03:42 PM) you asked for it, you got it eleven!!
@  ELEVEN : (22 April 2015 - 12:11 PM) I am running out of things to bitch about. Please send more!

@  GuliblGuy : (16 April 2015 - 02:16 PM) I have fantasies about Calhoun. He does perform.
@  cezero : (11 April 2015 - 05:28 PM) I put Calhoun on my fantasy team. He'd better perform.
@  Chuck Richter : (08 April 2015 - 09:11 AM) C.J. Wilson was the man last night!
@  GuliblGuy : (06 April 2015 - 12:01 PM) Happy opening day!

@  Jim : (02 April 2015 - 02:54 PM) Hey, that's today. Is it up?
@  Chuck Richter : (01 April 2015 - 09:04 PM) Making one final touch to the logo. Should be up by tomorrow sometime.
@  tdawg87 : (30 March 2015 - 11:18 AM) Yeah cez it's different. The old one was celebrating 10 years of AW which was last year. I like this one but think it might be a bit too big.
@  cezero : (30 March 2015 - 11:13 AM) I'm betting that Taijuan Walker gives up his first spring training run to Mike Trout.
