Socrates for Muslims

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran
in response to reader comment: Islam-Catholicism

Submitted by Ianus (Poland), Jan 30, 2006 at 16:37

Dear PDM, thank you for your judicious comment :

> Nowhere in the bible does Jesus Christ tell Christians to kill non Christians.

muhammed tells all muslims to kill non-believers, shun non-believers, ambush non-believers. muslims may not question islam.

Let me paraphrase Socrates:

The unexamined religion is not worth keeping


I am afraid you'll have to explain to our Mohammetan readers who Socrates was. How shall they know? After all he isn't mentioned even once in the "Infallible" Quran and the oracles of Hadiths keep silent on him.
