Bas, im an open minded 37yr old irish christian,but i dont follow my religion as avidly as you. In fact, i dont go to church and neither do my 2 young children or wife. I like to go to work then eat, then spend some time with the family,and at weekends drink beer. I love my family and would die for them,and that is the norm for my friends and colleagues too. I would also help anyone in need regardless of colour or creed in anyway i could. If i could save the world by giving my arms or legs i would. Im a good all round lad with no hate for anyone or any religion,no matter how bitter or twisted they my be.I take flyers of religious girls and guys at every street corner in Belfast and read them all.

I went on holiday in august to benidorm,and because of the plane bomb threat my kids and wife cried all the way there and back. I tried my best to be strong for them,but after we got home they all said that this is our last time on a plane. It was my first time abroad. It will be our last.

Ive never ever hated anyone, but after that experience Islam was the first religion i've ever had anger for.This is nothing personnel to you Bas,but now i feel the world is not a safe place.Im so sorry to be so forthrite and honest Bas, but the more terror that effects an honest man's life,t he more he detests their way of life. Ive seen it all here with IRA,UDA,UVF,INLA.,but never has it been so shocking and so frightening than the fanantic killings in the name of Islam. Religion is the worst killer in the world and will be the end of the world. I hope im wrong Baz. CHEERS PAL.
