337. You are conflating two different topics into a single argument.
1) You are saying that the christian bible is a part of their religious canon - which is a lie. Because is it a part of their religious canon (lie) bible verses to them is not proselytizing. To which I say, bible verses are NOT part of their canon, and any use of christian bible verses would be prostelitizing.

Which has nothing to do with

2) separation of church and state, violated by inscribing bible references on US government issue material. Such inscriptions are proselytizing, but not to the people being shot at, but to the people doing the shooting - after all, someone a quarter mile away is unlikely to see the inscription. Technically, it is probably not proselytizing so much as sharing a secret code with believers - the fundie crusaders who are infiltrating our military

"Muslims are really Christians at heart" Where did you get that? No, not from me.

Well, yes, I did get if from you, from your repeated insistence that Islam is a direct descendent of Christianity, and believes the Christian bible - which, if true, would make them just as Christian as the Mormons, who also have a newer book that is founded in the christian bible. Such a statement is abusrd, of course, and YOU were the person making it.

Try to keep up.
