you are ignorant of the bible

"There are verses in every text which can be construed the wrong way. There are a lot of seemingly disgusting things in the Bible that may have a reasonable explanation. I would post them but I think I would be condemned for questioning the Bible."
we are not...like your people tearing up flags on the streets and shooting guns while screaming like mad men. We are civilized people.
The koran is the literal word of god, by denying this you make yourself an apostate. Your caravan robber heard directly the word of god and somehow told it to buddies, and later it was written as the exact word of god.
The bible is not the exact word of god, no matter how you put it and not knowing this basic fact makes you a total ignorant of the things you talk about. The bible is written by men by inspiration of god, that's why christians are not supposed to take it as literal. Secondly, in the bible it's clearly written the difference between spiritual power and political power, in islam this is not even thinkable.
You know nothing of your religion and you don't know anything also of others. Not a good start for a discussion.
"In Exodus 22-20, Is God commanding you to kill over a billion people?
In Leviticus 19:19, dhimmi, susan, and noah, check your clothing. Is God demanding that you die for wearing cloth made from 2 different threads?"
here's the reply...nothing written in the bible is made to be taken literally. Your book is not comparable to the bible, your warlord prophet wrote a book to increase his power. that's why he made it untouchable and unchangeable. Your koran is the literal word of your pagan moon god.
Stop comparing your cult with the other 2 proper religions. Stop comparing bible and koran. Any average scholar can tell you the bible wasn't meant to be taken as literal.
Thousand of quotes confirm that, by your revereed scholars.
