Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict Criticizes Islam [in Regensburg]
in response to reader comment: Sometimes common sense has to fill in the blanks

Christians are, for the most part, open minded and tolerant of others. Muslims are closed minded, intolerant and proud of it.

Chistians were in their history for convert or die, just look at the history.

8.Christianity preaches self control and not only personal responsibility but love and responsibility toward all people on earth during all times. Muslims let it all hang out, lie about everything if it suits their purposes, have no love and regard for anybody and blames "christians" and "infidels" for all the boneheaded mistakes that they commit right and left.

You are using a profiling that is totally irrelevant to this day and age.

Maybe I am just one of the lucky ones that has frienship with individuals of differing faith and culture. We enjoy our differences and explore and try to learn from them. We do want to move on from the historicle masacres on all sides and live with piece and tolerance.

ONLY THE EXTREMISTS prevent this.
