Drone strikes versus the Spanish Inquisition, which killed more in less time?
We should get off our high horse and remember that a certain leftist, marginal Christians in the White House has a faster murder rate with drone strikes than all those crazy Spaniards did with their wacky, 500 year old, 140 year long Inquisition. If he can sustain his rate and keep working his personally authorized extermination list, he will eclipse the estimated body count of the Spanish Inquisition - and that is not counting bombing sorties and SEAL team actions. The Nobel Peace Prize just ain't what it used to be.
Well now--I can think of a lot of people right now, killing more than the inquisition....and if you think drones kill.....wait for the ground war... In fact,I would say this has been the century of Muslim killing(killing Muslims)...whatd'ya think
Killing on the personal order of the President from his personally approved list of Muslim targets.Wait until Project Barack is finished in Teran and his buddy the Ayatola nukes Tel Aviv.That should get him another Nobel Peace Prize.
Oh I see....Israel the poor victim....plenty more Palestinians killed than people killed during Inquisition--I thought that was what bothered you.....obviously not.
No my concern is the willingness of lefties to accept Obama's drone hit list and the innocent "collaterals" damaged to death because he, personally, orders a strike,all the while lauding his peaceful ways and the plight of Jew killing suicide bombers
I know this is really technical and complicated, so I need you to bear with me and try not to get lost, but here's the difference:
The drone strikes are against people that are very possibly terrorists, and thus are legitimate threats to others around them. Maybe only a minor one, and that's even assuming they a.) are terrorists, and b.) actually manage to get an attack off the ground, but a semi-legitimate terrorist threat nonetheless. At least locally. Questionable at best, but so it goes.
The Inquisition, however, was purely religious tyranny. People actually thinking for themselves? Better kill 'em all, then. We don't need fodder that uses its brain, thank you. Just give all your money to the church or we'll burn your whole effing family, heretic. And don't even think about contacting the Pope, because that means defying us and we're the church and defying the church is heresy, heretic. Let's see how well that brain of yours thinks at 1300 degrees, heathen. Poking holes in our ludicrous doctrine is unforgivable!

The amount of attacks against religion in these HubPages Religion & Beliefs forums is akin to Communist Russia between 1925-1947 with the League of the Militant Godless (aka the Union of Belligerent Atheists). Because these aggressive types just make up a small minority of society it is...

Considering the number of innocent people killed by gunmen, isn't it time guns were banned?The recent murders at the movie premiere were in a long line of multiple murders by gunmen - some occurring in schools. Should the right to carry guns still be sacrosanct in the USA?

forthcoming terrorist strike from our government in the name of Al-Qaida in any of our cities? The fact that the threat comes from the Saudi peninsula and that the Saudi house is our friend, what is the probability for a terrorist act to happen with their complicity on our soil? Remember Sept11, it...
