I don't know whether to feel honored or angry!

No, MA, I am not a christian extremist. I gave up believing in such nonsensical myth years ago. I am an unbeliever, a rationalist, who saw religion as just another unnecessary, intrusive, controlling influence that adversely affects our lives. Religion is man-made, MA, first created to allay the obvious fears of primitive man, then retooled to control the masses to perpetuate an elitist class known as clergy or clerics.

The worst possible examples are, of course, governments run by religious fanatics.

ALL religions are cults, MA, with the exception of Islam, which is simply a terrorist organization, not unlike the Mafia, with its death threats to those who might dare seek to leave its tight grasp. Any religion that threatens its followers with death, as Islam does, can hardly be called a "peaceful religion," yet you imply that because of your "one billion" followers, something must be good about it. Sorry, but sheer numbers simply means that stupidity reigns supreme among Muslims.

I was appalled to read, MA, that you believe "Islam is all about social justice." ...

1. Tell that to the Muslim girls dangling from the jib of a crane for having engaged in the most natural, human act in the world -- sex! Some have even been rape victims! One such girl was condemned by the judge for her "attitude," because she indignantly denied any wrongdoing.

2. Tell that to the Muslim girls who were victims of "honor" killings, murdered by their own kith and kin, for daring to oppose arranged marriages!

3. Tell that to the Muslim women who have been severely beaten by your "religious" police for daring to show a little bit of head hair or an ankle!

As for two single youths of opposite sex walking together in the street, this is seen as a heinous crime in an Islamic country. For you to use the term "social justice" in such a cavalier manner clearly illustrates that you do not even understand its meaning.

I have been on both sides of the fence, MA. Christianity was bad enough, but Islam... controls every facet of life for Muslims, from prayers to an illusion in the sky five times a day to toilet "hygiene." Not one moment of your life, MA, is very far from the controlling effects of the Koran and Hadiths.

Once again, and for the last time, MA, I did NOT say that 100% of Muslims are terrorists. I stated that close to 100% of ALL terrorist acts perpetrated around the world are committed by Muslims. If you can't understand the difference, MA, because of your appalling knowledge of the English language, that's your problem!

No, MA, Islam is not good. It is nothing less than an insidious pandemic, but I have confidence that, by exercising constant vigilance, its intentions will be overcome!
