Daniel Pipe's gave good reasons why these countries including the U.S. won't Islamic terrorism Islamic,
Daniel Pipes wrote: Summary: The establishment â€“ law enforcement, officials, the media, and academics â€“ has shied away from seeing this violence as jihadi. Why? First, officialdom wants to assure Muslims that it is not biased against them. They worry that being perceived as anti-Islam will inspire even more alienation and violence. Second, officials want to avoid the many implications of focusing specifically on violence by Muslims, which upsets the modern liberal ethos. These motives are worthy but wrong headed. Common safety and the survival of Western civilization both require those in positions of authority candidly to inform the public about the nature of Muslim-on-non-Muslim violence, and then the press to report on it.

In fact, if you measure their success or failure according to their own stated political ambitions, evangelicals have failed spectacularly in Americaâ€™s political arena. Over the past quarter-century, they have not accomplished any of their long-term legislative or constitutional goals....

Here's another question that never gets a straight answer:
Why must you bring up immodesty ad nauseam?
9 times out of ten the thread you start this up in has nothing to do with it. Does the NBA even have cheerleaders? 'Cause I didnt even think they did. I'm against immodesty as much as next guy, and even agree with you that Christians are better off not watching the NFL, but I do not agree with constantly shoving it down everyone's throat.
I don't wish to be mean, but you really are hung up on this particular sin.
Yes Wayfarer if it was affecting the elite it all would quickly change. Reminds me of the bathroom situation they don't seem to care unless it starts to affect them. Muslims are hard to know how to deal with, with them following the words of the Quran and all. Hard to fight an enemy who thinks dying in the way of jihad will fulfill all there carnal lusts in heaven with a whole bunch of well you get my drift. Yeah one tuff situation.
These attacks will continue as it does not affect the elites. A 86 year old Catholic priest or people at an office party or torturing kids at a dance club too death , will always be parlayed to being a " tragic" situation by the non effective. If ever Isis attacks the political or financial segment of society, things will change quickly. But till then we have to kill more of them and strike fear that this , death and paradise stuff isn't so grand , we might have a reduction of these attacks.

Yes, wouldn't it be wonderful if one day the Holy Spirit drew SteveR and gave him and new circumcised heart, from above. Then he wouldn't bash God's true children and support those who in all probability don't belong to our Lord and Savior. I sometimes pray for his salvation and will do so again tonight.
Preach and teach the gospel. Nothing will change a persons life more than the regeneration of new life brought by the gospel. But, if you know anyone considering abortion, get involved in their life to save two lives.
