Reader comment on item: "Islam" Does Not Mean "Peace"
in response to reader comment: Islam has never and will never mean peace. It means kill the other guy.

My lost friend, although you are entitled to your own opinion as everyone is, your comment is nothing more than something that resembles the tactics lawyers use in a courtroom just to put emphasis on whatever point he/she is trying to make. If you think or feel someone is guilty, you are only going to present the material that supports that claim..making it a point to totally disregard any good that individual may have done. The example you've supplied only applies to those persons involved.

You cannot condem the mass based on the actions and beliefs of a few. For you to judge Islam as a whole for it's teachings means that you should only refer to what it teaches,..not those who follow because NO ONE is above sin! That goes for any religion. If a Catholic shot and killed someone, is it right for me to assassinate the character of every Catholic I encounter? I pray for your heart to soften and allow yourself to be more receptive to your obvious greivance with Muslims. I extend the most genuine hopes for peace and security to you and your family.
