Islam is so Kind to us Pagans... Not

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: Islam: Only Solution for Terrorism

"But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful." [Al-Qur'an 9:5]. Yea, this makes me feel so warm and fuzzy, especially the part that says, "...repent, and establish regular prayers..." I have an idea; I won't tell you how to believe and you don't tell me! What a concept! Besides, you wouldn't want to believe the way I do; I am not superstitious, nor do I believe in ghosts, invisible friends or any of that religious BS. I believe in science and facts, not emotion and pathetic hope for my sorry ass.
