in response to reader comment: Selective Reasoning

Submitted by Ron (United States), Jul 10, 2006 at 13:03

Name one other religion in the 21st Century -- besides Islam -- that preaches and practices world conquest through any means possible, including terrorism, torture, and genocide?

There are none.

Name one other religion in the 21st Century -- besides Islam -- that forces people to convert to their religion, that treats people of all other religions with distain and contempt, and that murders those who speak out against it or choose not to practice it?

There are none.

I just love it when somebody brings up a selective history of the Crusades WHICH WERE DEFENSIVE WARS against Muslim expansion in the West, let alone the Holy Land.

When it comes to militant Islamists, they are without equal, and there are no parallels nor moral equivalentsto them in the 21st Century, no matter how far you stretch the truth.
