“I don’t approve of Islam either but a little perspective is in order. We preach the same thing!”

NO, we don’t. Christ commands us to be tolerant, love one another and hate the sin but not the sinner. Our faith teaches that only God can judge, NOT us, and that judgment will be in the hereafter. Muhammed (the prophet) commands his followers to be judge, jury and executioner. And NO tolerance for non-Muslims. Christ respected women; Muhammed was a pedophile, polygamist and advocated stoning, mutilation, and all manner of murder against women who don’t “toe the line” according to his sick standards. Christ promised eternal life to all who believes in Him - Muhammed wrote that the only sure way to Paradise is to kill, or be killed, in the name of Allah. (Hence, suicide bombers - “livin’ to die for virgins in the sky”.)

The two religions are fundamentally different, but then, Islam is fundamentally different from all other major world religions.

The tired, old rant about “more wars were fought in the name of religion” is not a valid argument against Christianity, either. While there has been violence through the ages by those who twisted it wrongfully for their own ends, the New Testament upon which our faith is founded advocates no such thing. The “new testament” of the Koran, however (writings of Muhammed after Medina when he became increasingly violent in his beliefs and teachings, and which Islam believes supercedes the earlier part of the Koran), commands world domination of Islam through its followers by any and all means possible (including lies/deception), and death to ALL infidels who will not convert or agree to being subjugated as second-class citizens.

Brigitte Gabriel has said that those Muslims who are peaceful and moderate are either not familiar with the entire Koran or choose to cherry-pick the pleasant parts of it in order to lead a comfortable life harmonious with their neighbors in non-Muslim societies.

Sorry to be long-winded, but I wrote this because we will all, more and more, be called upon to defend the facts of our religion, and Christ’s love, against Islam and the true hatred that Muhammed commands.

Tolerantly addressing that level of ignorance had to be an effort — good job!

Sorry to be long-winded...

AS the self-appointed certified posting critic, I thought your post was succinct and very well worded. In a few sentences you clearly illustrated many major differences.

Well done !
