    an extremist in any religion is not following their true religion. so if we are talking about a christian that has went astray, has left the true christian faith. do we still call them christians just because they use to be christian. The attacks in India can we really call those people muslims, I do not think so. They have left their religion, and have basically become non believers. It is those nonbelievers through out the world that is giving religion a bad name, It is time we stop calling these people a name that includes the religion they use to be. lets leave it as extremist.

      All they are doing is following the instructions of their gods. All of them. smile

      Quoran:

      Qur’an 3:56 “As for those disbelieving infidels, I will punish them with a terrible agony in this world and the next. They have no one to help or save them.”

        If you truly follow Gods instructions you will love you enemies, you will turn the other cheek, you will not attack people because they piss you off. all non believers want to blame religion because some one leaves their true faith because they want power, money or what ever excuse they have for leaving their true beliefs in God

          I have a deal of respect for the cultural inheritance of what we consider to the norms of good and bad - none of it includes listening to voices in my head, and it definately does not include listening to the voices that others hear in their heads; following writings from people clearly suffering from mental illness and ego worship is mindless.  You can ignore all the facts you like, but to come here and blabber meaningless words instead of answering the real questions is childish.

        While I don't have a bible to hand to quote from, I did read  it when I was in hospital and there are a few passages in there which talk about what happens if you believe in another god.

        The entire Crusades thing was based on what God thought you should do to non Christians as well.  Go peace on earth - woooo.

      why not get back on the subject.
      why call some one a christian extremist or muslim extremist if they have left the true faith and become a nonchristian or a nonmuslim, just call them extremist or non believers, because they are not what they are called.

      An extremist of anything is one who has gone beyond and clearly into something else.
      Is an anorexic focused on healthy weight?
      When a person rescues 40 cats and keeps them in one house, are they still an animal rescuer?
      I think when a person goes well beyond they step into something else. It applies to religion and everything.

          well it might apply at individual level but if we make list of all those suicide bombers who blew up all around the world ..most eyed heaven or had political goal....and non believers in ideology cannot commit such acts...those who took plane to wtc or killed in mumbai were eyeing 72 virgins and heaven..while those who blew themselves in sri lanka were eyeing future where tamils would have their own country or atleast equal rights...

            For the most part these suicide bombers live in abject poverty with no hope for a future,

               I read that they would go sign up for the job opportunity, be given their tools of the trade and when the job is completer; their famils are given a kings ransom.

               Hunger usually plays a part in civil unrest which leads to wars.

              The majority of suicide bombers and for that matter terrorists come from well educated backgrounds and middle income families.

              I can't remember if it was freakonomics or super freakonomics where they talked to a guy whos job was to collate accounts which matched identifiers which could posibbly signify whether someone was a terrorist or not based on financial transactions.

            they are fooling themselves because they did not get what they wanted.
            a true believer would not commit such acts. only non believers could think they would gain anything by doing these things.
            a true believer believer will love their enemies, just like the Word of God says to do.
            I know non believers will misquote the word or take them out of context to try to do what they think they are doing

              Quite the contrary.  It seems that it is the MOST TRUE believer that commit these acts.

              The fact that you haven't stoned any adulterers or homosexuals to death, indicates that you are not a true believer.

      lol who would want to marry if he gets 72 virgins without marrying lol...on serious notes you have a point ..but all religious people belonging to any religion who love life must do something about misinterpretations of the books...like 72 virgins is very much a motivation factor for people blowing off themselves in iraq,afghan,pakistan ...they believe that they are serving their community and would be rewarded..ofcourse 72 is just part of reward...

        Well, I think they do believe in God unlike the non believer, but, I think Satan has entered into them and tricked them.  They are no longer following the faith, they are following Satan.  So they are no longer "Christians", or Muslims.  Satan believes in God, he can also recite scripture.  Satan changes the scripture a little bit to trick his followers.
        So, call them devil followers, or extremists.  They think they are following God, but they are following Satan.

                Agreed WOC. For as Jesus said in the parable of the sower of seeds(word)Mark 4 verses 3 through 8.

                I speak the word, to many it will fall on deaf ears Satan takes away the words sown in their hearts, some will hear and not understand when problems arise they reject the word and follow the pack mentality such as many non-believers on this site do.

                Some hear the word but cannot give up the cares of the world, riches, lust, ego, pride and the word is useless to them.

                But some might hear and have their sins forgiven.
