Ouch ... that hurts ...

Reader comment on item: "Islam" Does Not Mean "Peace"
in response to reader comment: Back to Dhimmi No More

Submitted by Owen (United States), Jun 20, 2007 at 21:42

I am a Christian - I do not hate Jews - I do not hate Muslems (per se) - I have never suspected any hatred of Jews toward me or others for our Christianity - I wish the same could be said about Islam.

I will not attempt to justify the actions of individuals or institutions that have overstepped every bound of Christian decency in the Name of God for the sake of filthy lucre.

But I perceive that you at some point have been deeply wronged by some people that I might consider 'brothers in Christ' and for that I wish to extend my deepest apologies.

My God is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He loves the Jews much more than is humanly possible. He has always maintained a 'remnant' within Israel that has remained faithful to Him. Perhaps you are amoung the chosen - I'd like to think so.

I don't want to come across with any hidden agenda - I have none - but, I find myself compelled to offer to salve the wounds administered by my erstwhile brothers in Christ and perhaps establish a corrected view / understanding of true Christianity.

My intent is not your conversion to or from any other religion but simply to cleanse the 'bad taste' you obviously have for what you preceive to be Christianity.

I have attached my e-mail address as this topic has nothing to do with Islam = Submission.

God bless.
