Dear BLACK-BLING-MDXi myself will never forgive those terrorists and bin laden and saddam even when they ARE dead. Sikhism, a monotheistic faith established about 500+ years ago in India was created to stop the oppression by the Muslims on the Hindus in the area. Our religion's basic principles are as follows: God is One, Respect everyone, equality for women and men... but a major distinction is in the way we look. Our Tenth profit, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, gave us a distinct identity to differentiate us from Muslims and Hindus. In India, we were the saviors, the warriors, the protector of freedom. Hindus looked up to us and we wanted to differentiate ourselves. We are not allowed to cut our hair or shave and we also wear a turban. We keep our hair b/c it was God's given gift to us and we wear a turban again to differentiate ourselves and because back then all the kings used to wear turbans. After 9/11 though, many people (mainly white trash) but people nonetheless mistook us for muslims and terrorists and we have been facing problems ever since. Many Sikhs have been killed because of their appearance. I know this is a long post, but I would just like to get the word out and educate people so they don't mistake us for something we're not. We fought against the Muslims back then, and if the time comes again, we will fight against them again if they oppress anyone...

I certainly agree that murder or unjustified homicide is morally wrong and is what Moses presented in the commandments more correctly translates to.FamilyMDX said:At this point, I can only say one thing. Killing is wrong. Regardless of race or religion.
is considered a stereotype. This is just propaganda.but what is being taught in the Middle Eastern countries to the Muslims is wrong
Unfortunately, I think America must listen to the Lord before He will bless us. Instead, we are kicking Him out at every turn. Sad.vicpai said:

___ ... America is not the God fearing and/or loving country that it once was. ...
___ ... I don’t know what to say other than being a Christian, I am supposed to forgive but being an American, I want Osama’s head as well as his followers for the world to see now more than ever! ... Prayers for the loved ones left behind who bare the burden of personal loss will hopefully provide solace to help throughout the rest of their lives here on earth.
___ ... With this kind of teaching to Muslim youth and with the direct or indirect approval of foreign governments, what else can I do but be suspicious of Muslim’s? ... Please help me somehow cast aside my suspicions of those that practice this religion. ... but there are countries, groups, individuals that have taken up such a radical hate and I know of no other way to deal with it other than to be suspicious and can only compare it to another form of Nazism? It may not be racial purity but religious purity has grown to be just as evil in my eyes.
___For those of the Muslim faith, ... . I do however hope you can help remove the teaching of hate the same way I would not stand for it if it were taught in the local schools my children have attended in the past, present, or future that I know of.
___Good Luck to us all.
