in response to reader comment: Are religions reformable

are very flexible in comparison to Islam. Sometimes, that's not always a good thing, as Canada, Australia and Europe are spiritually dying.

But, it does allow Churches to adapt what Jesus taught for the times.

The Vatican recently said that changing DNA codes and polluting the environment are evil, serious sins that can keep a person from going to heaven. These things obviously aren't mentioned directly in the Bible, but common sense tells us that it falls under the Commandment to respect life.

Anyways, there are moderate Muslims, but on the wholesale, Islam isn't about the five pillars anymore, it's more about conquest and spreading the Arabic culture. It's surprising, since after Mohammed moved to Medina and got access to an army that's what he did.

The fact that Islamists regard pillage, rape and conquest as divine is sickening. Yet, the liberal left of every democracy on planet Earth will tolerate it, as long its not Christians and Jews.
