By expressing myself I am showing ignorance? I am sick and tired of people critising Islam, by protecting my religion - I am showing ignorance? I think your the one who is ignorant beyond all doubt. By abusing and accusing my religion are you not showing ignorance? By notifying me of your religion (just as I did) are you showing ignorance. Next time don't be too quick to judge.
I suggest you read the Qur'an before making any more statements. The information you have provided on Islam is completey incorrect. For example read Surah Iqra (Verse); it begins

'Proclaim! (or read!) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created-
Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood:
Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful,-
He Who taught (the use of) the pen,-
Taught man that which he knew not.
Day, but man doth transgress all bounds,
In that he looketh upon himself as self-sufficient.
Verily, to thy Lord is the return (of all).
Seest thou one who forbids-
A votary when he (turns) to pray?
Seest thou if he is on (the road of) Guidance?-
Or enjoins Righteousness?
Seest thou if he denies (Truth) and turns away?
Knoweth he not that Allah doth see?
Let him beware! If he desist not, We will drag him by the forelock,-
A lying, sinful forelock!
Then, let him call (for help) to his council (of comrades):
We will call on the angels of punishment (to deal with him)!
Day, heed him not: But bow down in adoration, and bring thyself the closer (to Allah).'

As for your interpretation of the Qur'an - some ayats are like metaphors, they mean something different to that which has been literally written. Therefore Scholars have written 'Tafsir of the Quran' (science of the quran).
Christians have forgotten about their Maker. They praise Jesus more than Allah (God) - When It was He Who sent Jesus to preach the word of Allah (God). Allah mentions this in the Qur'an. It also says the Bible, Qur'an and Torah were all the same at one time until man changed the Bible by creating the 'New Testament' (i.e. Jesus son of God). I am not critising your religion, i am merely debating.
