In response to Peace and Submission

Reader comment on item: "Islam" Does Not Mean "Peace"
in response to reader comment: Peace = Submission

Submitted by the Wood (United States), Mar 5, 2008 at 11:25

Okay, I find this whole argument useless. Every religion requires submission in some form or another. Even Christianity and Judaism require you submit to the Will of God and/or Christ. They both profess that submission in this way leads to eternal peace. Now, is that any different than what Islam requires?

I think people should be ashamed when they judge a group of any kind based on the actions of a few. Christian Crusades, Islam radicals, Jewish terrorists, Nazis, white supremacists....etc. There are radicals everywhere! The entire world is full of people that do horrible things. I am willing to bet that every group out there has someone or some few that have brought shame with their radical though to the group they are lumped with. Therefore, if we judge the whole group by what a few within the group do, we are all racist radicals that will never understand peace.

Submitting....
