Islam hasn't evolved--it still uses intimidation to spread and survive

Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?
in response to reader comment: Verses marked in red

The Christian bible and other "sacred" writings still have their verses of hatred intact. But we've already gone throught the dark ages and Spanish Inquisition and Roman conquest, so we think we are safe from them. But we are not. Pat Robertson and other extremist Christian groups still comprise the fastest growing religion in the U.S. besides Islam.

With modern medicine, we also are saving preemies and other children that will have life-long mental retardation at a much higher rate, and those without high mental functioning are easily manipulated. This is also something that will have a long-term impact that is unpredictable.

The problem with Islam is that it is still feral and brutal--like the Christianity of the dark ages. Belief is utlimately deadly. And wherever Islam goes, it conquers. Everywhere it goes eventually falls to Islam--no exceptions so far. That's one reason people need to repeal laws that give advantages to religions. It comes into the U.S. with tax exempt status and isn't just a religion. it has access to tax money and intimidates leaders into not fighting it out of fear.
