No "love" in Koran

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran
in response to reader comment: Bible versus Koran

Submitted by Wesley's Ghost (United States), Jan 19, 2006 at 03:03

Donna commented that there is not a single reference to "love" in the Koran.

That pretty much says it all. What is the absence of love? It it at best indifference at at worst, hate. And that, Donna, is why the muslim world widely hates Christians and Jews.

Question: Hitler had plans to destroy Chrtistianity [Hitler was not a Christian for those so simplistic in argument] and place on the altar a copy of "Mein Kampf" [the greatest book deemed ever written] and a sword. If Nazism had survived and WW II been called a "draw" and the world now had 1.5 billion people attending services with "Mein Kampf" on their alter, would we call it a "religion" and consider it to be legitimate? Would it be any different than the way Islam was spread, which was by the sword?

Start thinking of Islam in that fashion and you'll know who the true God favors.
