Reader comment on item: The Islamic Invasion: Confronting the World's Fastest Growing Religion
in response to reader comment: Islamic invason

In a world full of uncertainty people are often and easily misguided on topics on wich they have no background information. If you have truly becomes learned and educated on the religion you are attacking then I respect your claims. After reading your 'blog' it has become painfully clear to me that you are not separating culture from religion. Different types of people exist in all religions and walks of life. Not all might have a personal smear campaign and not all are constantly attacked by the media but they do all exist. The people who you speak of who do hideous things most certainly do exist. But just because they do these things in the name of Islam does not mean that the religion says that it's what they should do. In most cases these things have been around in their culture for so long that people have merged it with religion. As someone who seems to care a great deal about religion I'm sure you can appreciate the ramifications of misinformation. Do not become a victim of ignorance. In times where the ignorant yell the loudest and are often the only ones who are heard it is important to arm ourselves with knowledge. I will present you with two facts. Should these two facts come as a surprise to you I urge you to study what you speak of before tainting the innocent minds of the ignorant with your slander.

  1. Islam does not force women to wear head gear, it is presented as a choice.
  2. It is against the religion to commit suicide.
