a response to Islam is the best religion by Naureen

I'm sure you are a gentle muslim who would not harm a fly but I'm afraid your thinking on the issue of child abuse does not fit with how child abuse is classified.
Firstly, you state that it is the absence of religion which leads people astray and to commit atrocious sexual abuse with children, not to mention so called honour killings.
How then do you explain that boy rape is rife in Afghanistan? That many religious priests also abuse children. I think you will find that religion is no barrier to preventing these awful things happening. Those who are following your prophet as a role model are no learning how not to lust after children. On the contrary, if mohammed managed to control himself from having full sexual intercourse until the child Ayesha was 9, then it is a green light for his adherents to see 9 years olds as fair play.
We could argue that it was merely co-incidence that he married a very wealthy widow, but given the nature of the man and his narcissistic personality disorder, I think he knew when he was onto a good thing for himself.
Promising 75 virgins in heaven and a few pearls (young boys) thrown in for good measure is not lustful?
"Lastly, I will say that Islam is the only religion which says that respect and believe the other religions and it never says that infidels are lowest. If it is so, It was not hard for HIM to finish them. But He loves HIS creature more than a mother loves her children"
....and I'm sure you believe that. So this is why islam has a history of forced conversion and dimmietude? Why Egyptians are killing Coptic Christians in Egypt and the Sudan. Why they are murdering Hindus in India?
So it isn't true that Jews are called Apes and Pigs and that you should not befriend a Jew, a Christian or a non-believer?
I do not share your notion of allah as a loving God..
