Dear Ynnatchkah:

If English is in fact your fourth or fifth language, then I must defer to your more extensive linguistic skills than my own, for I must confess that, with the exception of a few phrases in Spanish, I remain monolingual at the age of 59. As for my apparent lack of criticism of Islam, let me make restitution for that perceived omission posthaste.

In my opinion Islam is the most dangerous and perverse of all of the extensively followed religions on earth. Although Christianity has had a dark past with such abominable episodes in its history as the Spanish Inquisition and the brutul theocracy of the Massachussetts Bay Colony which, in the year 1692, led to a sordid little historical episode known as the Salem Witch Trials, I must admit that Christianity has morphed into a more benign form of religious worship that stresses acceptance, charity and understanding of others.

Islam appears to have no such capacity for change and clings tenaciously to the brutal and inhuman dictates of its perverse Seventh Century Prophet, Mohammad. Now in the 21st Century, Islamic societies still stone people to death for a multitude of crimes. Islam still denies women anything approaching the concept of civil rights and imposes barbaric punishments---public beheadings, public floggings---upon those convicted of even the most minor digressions.
