False Dogma or Wishful Thinking

Reader comment on item: Did Michael Jackson Convert to Islam?
in response to reader comment: Leaving the False Dogma of Islam!!!

Sorry Ibrahim, I didn't mean to hurt you. I only asked the question whether you knew "what is the fastest growing religion in the world" in response to your suggestion to "wipe out the Muslims". The answer to that question can easily found. Just look at some Christian sources if it pleases you, and correlate it with other data and it won't be hard to work out some estimates.

Anyway, your contention that people are leaving Islam in droves and joining Christianity, is canon fodder for the gullible like you. I knew in your part of the world religion is a very sensitive issue and people tend to make more of it with the mouth than the heart. But in the west, it is a different story. It is a known fact that the vast majoirty of notionally Christians do not call themselves Christians even. And every year a lot of them convert to other religions such as Buddhism. Conversion of Christians to Islam is a regular occurrence in mosques throughout the western world. As one who has left Christianity and embraced Islam I am particularly aware of this. You have accepted Christianity, good on you! I hope you didn't accept Christianity to abuse Islam because if that is the case I don't think the Christian world will be holding their breath for the likes of such converts.

I have left Christianity in the knowledge that I acquired something better but I NEVER make it a point to abuse Christ or Christians because it is against the teachings of Islam. Surely, Christianity doesn't teach you to abuse other religions and people of other faiths! Peace !
