Jar - Terrible message followed by a good message at "The Search for Moderate Islam"
First the terrible:
Author: Jar Forum: Comparative Religions Thread: The Search for Moderate Islam Message #: 313
It was totally pointless and taught nothing. It is as stupid as a Search for Moderate Islam or moderate Christianity or moderate Buddhism. It seems pointless but it might employ a few folk and so that may be a saving grace.

Someone needed to say it. The idea of searching for moderate Islam has got to be one of the silliest threads yet.
Moderate Islam, like moderate Christianity or moderate Buddhism or moderate Sikhism is everywhere. It is all the Muslims that do not make the news, the florists and grocers and lawyers and doctors and teachers and firemen and policemen and Imams and bankers and cab drivers and almost all the Muslims in the US and in the world. It's all the Muslims that just want to feed their families, not get killed, educate their sons and daughters and maybe even buy a new car for the wife to drive.
Now, if only Jar had posted message 315 instead of message 313.
