Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: OK Islamists - lets try this tack.

Tony, I think your overview of this great `religion` make a lot of sense...reading some of the posts here it is apparent that followers seem to struggle when intelligent, lucid debate is requested, prefering, as you say to rattle out the old "islam is peace" type platitudes. Anyone with an iota of intellegence will realise that islam, as with other religions is a simple control mechanism for the great unwashed. I live in the UK and know many `devout` muslims..the hypocrasies that exist are stunning, I could list these but will spare readers the tedium.

For me, islam has a place in backward, over populated countries but is totally inappropriate in a progessive world...as you say what has islam given the world apart from murder, mayhem and abject evil... even their famous prophet is widely known for being a polygamous pedophile who advocated wife beating....but the poor misguided fools continue to mindlessly wallow in their cesspit of ignorance...

One other thing I would like comments on is this `virgin` thing......you are a good muslim & have just killed or maimed several unbelievers, you arrive at allah's front door to be met by a number of virgins (presumably to satisfy your human desires) where do they get all these females from??? what happens to them when their purpose has been served...just a thought

Submitting....
