in response to reader comment: What A Muslim Thinks of This

Submitted by Juan dela Cruz (Philippines), Aug 1, 2008 at 08:26

Mr. Faisal sir, I guess you're a "he" because women are required to maintain a low profile in muslim society. I believe you when you say that not all muslims are violent. That is indeed true. But there's just one problem that seems to pervade muslim culture and that is, you don't do a good job of policing your ranks to suppress the violent factions. You allow them to co-exist with the peace-loving ones either because of fear or because of social ties. And this is causing a lot of problems all over the world, isn't it?

And by the way, it takes hardly any effort to say the word, "Peace". But it takes true spirituality to "TURN THE OTHER CHEEK" to one's enemies.

May the light of the Gospel of peace and love illumine you.
