All religions have a dark side

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Whatever religion you decide to dissect will show a violent nature. Reading these texts and understanding the time periods in which they were written is essential. Jews, Muslims, Christians, Hindus and so on, all have elements that are unappealling. The religions all have excellent lessons on spirituality, human interaction, love, family, and life in general.
