in response to reader comment: Note To Dhimmi No More

Seamus>>a pagan is a country person, a rustic or farmer and you are obviously not any of those. What ever meaning the word has come to mean in the minds of Christians is irrelevant. The word "PAGAN" in no way implies a religious belief or practice in any form.

answeringchristianity.com( Muslim site):"These verses dispel any Pagan Christian......" http://www.answering-christianity.com/abdul-rahman_klimaszewski/worship_of_mary_by_pagans.htm

Friend, who appointed you to tell the world what words mean? Can a word's meaning change over time?

Seamus>> BUT, I would appreciate it if you would refrain from insulting those of us who do care about the real possibility of Armageddon brought on by impossible hatreds across the board.

Do you think you can prevent or stall Armageddon.?

Seamus>>If Islam does not mean peace then we must make it mean that

There you go again, wanting to redefine the meaning of words.

Seamus>>by teaching the ignorant to live peacefully. .

It seams that is what DhimmiNoMore was doing by asserting that Muslims are being deceptive about the meaning of "Islam."

Submitting....
