Sohail you first wrote:
"Islam allows anyone to choose their own religion."
So have you abrogated this verse from the Koran?
003.085 And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.
Good. I find that many Muslims on this forum are willing to abrogate verses from the Koran to suit their personal beliefs. This is good. More Muslims should come forward and abrogate other such uncivilised verses.
"That verse is simply saying that if you take another religion than Islam, then you're going to hell."
You have just shown that your Allah has a macabre sense of humour. He gives you the freedom to choose any religion and if you do not choose Islam the poor sod is burnt in hell, fed with putrid water and molten brass, his skin burnt to charcoal and recreated to feel pain again and again.
Are you sure you are not talking of Satan here?
