in response to reader comment: reply to Mr. Infidel

Please drop the nonsense that only islam has total submission to God the Almighty. Religions that PREDATE islams koran teaches submission to God. You take a passage from the koran as a great truth, to wit, the ever expanding universe.

Well, so what, take the time to read the Christian Bible written hundreds of years before there even was a notion called islam. Read the three opening chapters of the Book of Genesis. God divided the heavens and called it firmament. You also comment off the cuff that anyone who worships crosses etc was not worthy of God.

On this I agree totally. But, you will have to stretch my imagination to great extremes for you to be able to justify the kabba. A block of black rock, that all of islam must make a pilgrimage to is nothing more than AN IDOL of IDOLATROUS worship. You of islam are no different than other religions that use inanimate objects and sites as aids for religious worship.

The hardest truth to face is the lack of truth in what we are usually brought up in. As a young Christian, I was raised as a catholic, and as I studied the Bible, the Word of God, I found many contradictions with my early beliefs, and I had to make a profound change in my life. I had to confront what I had been taught, against the book of our belief. You in islam must do the same. Judaism, and Christianity teach total submission to God. islam coame on the scene hundreds of years after. It is time for you to do some real soul searching, and stop condemning everything islam calls bad.
