Ali,

Are you for real? (ok, ok settle down fella - sorry)

My friend - take a seat, relax and read what you wrote. Did you really think any of this makes sense to a logical mind?

We are all aware what a fatwa is - you see this forum is made up of educated people (Who think before they write). Is the Pope afraid of getting his head chopped off? - Well your folks have certainly created a climate of fear in the world, so maybe.

What faith could you or your brethren have when everything other than what you believe is punishable by death? To say this is faith is true comedy. Are you going to cut everyone's head off?

Faith is when you have free choice and critical thought and still make a choice to believe. Got that?

The faith you talk about is faith at the end of a gun - no choice, just follow. Not very human at all.

Good luck in the 13th century! Oh and my advice? When the Renaissance comes along - go for it this time.

Submitting....
