Shall we ban Judaism and Christianity as well?

Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?

Submitted by Meghan (United States), Feb 20, 2008 at 20:34

After all, the Bible - at least the Old Testament - is at least as violent and hate-filled as many people claim the Qur'an is. Heck, Sinhalese are killing Tamils in the name of Buddhism - shall we ban that, too?

I wear the veil, but I am a staunch feminist. I read the Qur'an, but I am a staunch socialist. I have faith, and just because terrorists hijacked my religion doesn't mean I should be robbed of that.
