If someone ever gives me $10,000 to spend on sheets, I will still spend it on the $25 jersey knit sheets from Target. I'll just have lots and lots of them.
There are none better.
Hey everyone, just wanted to say thanks for responding. I appreciate the suggestions.
Darkwave, thanks for the recalibration suggestion. I had no idea you could do that (without calling in a...
I gave the politest, most innocuous book recommendation (which other readers of the thread might be interested in reading too, if they are interested in the subject matter of this thread.)
Uh, yeah it is actually because I have been unfailingly polite to you on this thread and I don't intend to stop being so no matter how you behave.
You seem disproportionately angry.
Both toward me and this random marine.
Yes but can they get anywhere without Rudolph?
Can you explain why you are so adamant about condemning this marine, but simultaneously refusing to read anything about the context he is in?
Like, it seems important to you to BOTH condemn this...
What on earth???
How does "even bringing up" a book by a highly respected journalist who was completely unfairly imprisoned taint a US Marine? Could you connect those dots a little better for me?...
Well, if you 'would love to be proven wrong', please read the book I mentioned above, "Rosewater."
It is the true story of an Iranian-Canadian journalist who was held in Evin for 118 days after...
I recommend "Rosewater."
Both the movie and the book.
(The book is more nuanced and gives much more historical detail; the movie has Gael Garcia Bernal who is fabulous.)
If you are looking for a more special spa for your daughter's wedding preparations, I would call the concierge of a better hotel in midtown (such as the St. Regis) and ask them for a recommendation.
So, I started running three months ago and I have come to the conclusion that there has got to be something wrong with my treadmill.
I swear that it is calibrated at least 1 if not 2mph faster...
"What a specimen of humanity" is an interesting phrase because it is actually not fully under the control of the person uttering it.
If Matthew McConaughey walks by bronzed and buff on the beach...
DING DING DING
And while we are at it, yes, let's consider if serious persecution and disadvantage are interchangeable concepts.
If you show up at a 5k and say "I forgot my running...
Maybe you should wait until you learn Arabic then before deciding you can redefine Arabic terms in the manner most convenient to your hate spreading.
Really, the nerve you have to completely...
Perhaps you can write a letter of inquiry to the editors of the Oxford English dictionary, which can ask:
Does "threat of significant persecution" mean the same thing as...
nhwr LINKED TO a source with defined taquyya as denying faith "while they are at risk of significant persecution." Perhaps sources can vary but this is NHWR'S OWN SOURCE.
No, actually. Words mean things.
According to who, you wonder?
There are several orders of magnitude between "disadvantage" and "serious persecution." They are not...
Different views of an issue are different views of an issue, but different DEFINITIONS OF WORDS are a completely different thing altogether.
Or do you not think there is much difference between a...
Lol I'm such a placater.
Oh, and is the fact that you feel the need to lie about and distort the Islamic doctrines you bring up indicative of the strength of yours?
Well, in the spirit of disavowment, I'd like to take this opportunity to disavow certain people on COTH, and reiterate to any Muslim readers that weare not all like this, they are just an extremist,...
redalter, thank you for posting like a sane person.
More from the poster who has been shown to lie repeatedly and whose sole agenda on this thread is to try to get us to hate Islam more.
Tell me, whhich doctrines of your religion coverrepeatedly...
What your own link actually says is:
"can deny his Islamic faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are at risk of significant persecution."
Not, "when the truth would...
