Poll question: Which is worse?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. Masses of people being
blind to what is really in plain site when it comes to the whole process that underlies and preserves the results indicated by the other poll options.

2. This is like asking which is worse:
A rattlesnake
A black widow spider
A great white shark

ALL of your choices are unacceptable.
No reason to tolerate any of them.....they are not mutually exclusive.

4. You can't just simply declare one worse than the other
using religion as a justification for cruelty and using it to control others in thinking that if they carry out your crimes (as with the Islamic extremists) they will go to some heaven after dying is horrific. The question at this point is basically asking "which is worse, molesting children, hindering science education and freedom to choose or murder?". I pick none because all are crimes that affect us all in some way. I'm tempted to pick the last because I have family who very easily could've died on 9/11 but all these crimes are terrible and will have long lasting affects on society with the children who were violated needing treatment, lobbies of hypocritical self-serving bible-thumpers tampering with our elected officials and the threat of extremists from overseas.

5. I think there are multiple problems with this
1. Why are you trying to connect pedophilia and homosexuality?
2. Why are the right wing Christians being hypocritical in your example? Ignorant, yes; but hypocritical?
3. Am I voting on their belief or actually killing? Why limit this to Muslims and not the other religions that currently kill in the name of their religion?

6. Maybe I should just let you do my talking for a while. :)
You've read my mind, and you certainly have a knack for putting things succinctly.
