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.

@  DropOfAnaheim : (11 June 2014 - 11:46 AM) Ibanez was clutch 2 YEARS AGO. An organization can only smell the rosy farts of his legacy so long before the rotten stench of second half 2013-2014 requires Lysol, and an unconditional release.

@  bikervic : (03 June 2014 - 03:55 PM) I am a novice when it comes to baseball, but have often wondered why baseball players prepare to ‘steal bases’ differently than other athletes prepare to move. My inquiry has to do with the observation that starting with both feet on the ground slows the initial acceleration of runner and penalizes them by about 3'.  Consider the following and maybe a comment would help explain.
http://www.sports-sp...ase_running.pdf

If the distance between 1st & 2nd were 3' shorter, how would this affect the percentage of stolen bases? Another way to look at this percentage would be to estimate how many close umpire calls occurred where-in the runner was called out. vic
