The cat is out of the bag? please. the cat was never in the bag. let me ask you something. why is it that you compare Islam to Christianity? "Muslims are increasingly killing more and more people every day, around the world...", you say. why are they killing people? let me tell you. it is because they are being attacked. no one is attacking Christianity. you can live and practice your religion TO THE FULLEST almost anywhere you go. not the same for us. Islam cannot be practiced fully anywhere, because there is nowhere that we can implement Shariah law. of course, if we do happen to do that, then we all know that America and the Modern World will be there in a second and start bombing it...their excuse being that they need to "free the people". so dont tell me that the only reason that Islam is bad is because they have to fight. you would fight, too, if you were being attacked like we are.

oh and on a side note: I agree with your bit on the return of Jesus. he is definitely coming to save us from this "virulent madness". and by doing that, he will prove to the world that he never asked nor told anyone to worship him. he will prove to us that there is only ONE God, and that only that ONE GOD ("Allah", in arabic) is worthy of worship. he will prove to the world that he never was nor ever will be divine, and that he was a man just like everyone else (and just like Muhammad). he will come and speak the truth.

As for loving my neighbor: I love my neighbor, and if they do nothing to me, then why should i do anything to them? but if they attack me and try to force their ways of life down my throat? I have no choice but to fight back. as for loving God: Islam loves God more than you do. at least in Islam, God has our UNCONDITIONAL and UNDIVIDED love. yours is divided between Him and Jesus. we fear God out of love: we fear Him because we are afraid to do anything that might anger Him (just as a pious child fears hurting his parents...again, done out of love). the Quran tells us to fear Allah because loving Him is a given. it is just a step farther to fear Him.

just one more bit. I'm curious if you were ever Muslim once in your life? before you start fuming up, I ask this because you have the audacity to say this: "And by the way you cannot criticize my God's ways because you've never walked in them." I suggest you follow your own advice, Stephen.

my regards
