in response to reader comment: Religion of Peace?

I read your comments with interest. I as a Christian have been in many parts of the world and have befriended many individuals who follow Islam. The majority of these individuals were peaceful people. However once you began to discuss theology with them there was an attitude of intolerance surfaced.

I am currently reading the Koran to try to know what Isalm teaches and I am beginning to better understand why in our discussions an intolerant attitude manifested itself.
