Hi Arief!

I feel compelled to reply. There are several points I will address, so bear with me, in my fist statement I was cutting things short to make a point. To better inform you I will elaborate.

The comment on muslim people was a compliment, please take it as that or I will think you have no self esteem.

You do no know me, so statements like "my heart is dark" are coming from your image of americans in general, so I will not take personally.

I'm wondering why you think I'm catholic???( I would love a reply to this) Nuns are only followers of catholic faith, not baptist, protestents or any other christian faith.

Again, you assume too much of my beliefs, my beliefs are what I typed, exactly as written, there is no religion behind my actions. I believe in a big seperation of church and state, I do not believe in any god; but respect all other people who do believe. So the church fathers you talk about are not mine, I do not encourage their behavior in any religion.

I would not die for a religion, I would for someone I loved if I felt their life should continue in lue of mine.

I am for acceptance of all, and learning the lessons of the past. I often see remarks on christian past of violence. I'm glad we all remember this and KNOW THAT IT SHOULD NOT BE REPEATED. My earlier comments were meant to state that as one world we need to stop being destructive, accept one another, coexist. As an american citizen I follow my beliefs and vote accordingly, my leaders do not always make policies that I personally agree with, but I do believe our policies are meant to be helpful, although it does not always appear that way. I think its because as a people we misunderstand each other; like you thinking I'm a christian and have a dark heart.

Your statement that " you bear all for your religion " has a great meaning, does it include love and tolerance of others? if not, then you do not bear ALL for your religion.

Making statements that you want to take over a country or destoy it are dangerous. Others will defend their homelands as you defend yours. That is a lesson our government is still trying to learn, maybe you could learn it first and not endorse groups that make these kind of claims. OH what a great peoples you would be to aknowledge freedom of others and stop terrorizing others. You would have my undying respect and gratitute for setting an example for the rest of the world.

Muhammad Arief - I speak of peace, a little too frank maybe, but the message is peace.

your friend that would like to co -exist peacefully
