Brother, thanks for those references

Reader comment on item: "A Corrective to the Pipes Worldview"?
in response to reader comment: Too Many Contradictions

Brother, May you have the right way.

I am only refering to the 3rd para of your writings. I will not talk about the 1st 2 paras because I am not a historian.

You have given quite a few references from Al-Quraan that it asked to kill "kaffirs". Very well, I will state the first quotation here, which non muslims think is the most severe -

The recompense of those who wage war against Allâh and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter. [5:33]

So you see, Quraan saying that whoever rages a war against HIM, who created the heavens and the earth, they need to be punished and states different ways of punishment.

NOW MY QUESTION IS, WOULD YOU MIND TO LET US KNOW WHAT YOUR OWN SCRIPTURE SAYS ABOUT SUCH PEOPLE WHO DOES BLASPHEMY OR EVEN RAGE WAR AGAINST THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE?

Hope you will be able to post something truth.

Muhammad
