When I posted to this thread, it was redirected to another "political" forum. Why was this political thread not redirected from the outset?
Osama bin Laden's faith has never been of interest to American's except for it's political implications, and the second post, about the San Francisco radio station, directly discussed political matters.
And why did you redirect from the faith page my comment that disclosed faith-based economic directives that are not primarily political?
>>"It might be worth noting, if this is an occassion to better understand faith systems, that Islamic law as interpreted by many Muslims prohibits investment in weapons making. "
Are discussions of charitable guidance in the Christian faith likewise to be directed to the "political" board? What about the law of Moses -- the ten commandments -- is that "political"?
Or are you implying my comment was too insignificant in relation to faith matters to remain on the faith board? If so, your judgement is consistent with that of most Western media, which seems to consider Islamic faith-based economic rules insignificant in relation to discussion of secular economic matters, except perhaps for their political implications to the capitalist system.
