Reader comment on item: An International Law to Respect Religion?

Submitted by dfwhite19438 (United States), Mar 24, 2008 at 21:38

When i read this article, Laws to make religion off limits to any kind of ridicule is to put it bluntly insane . The radical islamists could care less about respecting other religions or the rules of any nation.... What galls me the most about islam is it's conceit, this religion is so full of itself it boggles ones mind. One opponent Khaleel Al khaleel comes right out and say's some people consider buddhism and other such religions coming from the East religions !!! I consider Buddhism a religion, would I want to be a Buddist no, but it's a religion, what gives Islam the right to arbitarily say it's not a religion is beyond my comprehension !

I was born a catholic, do I practice it no, because I see that in some instances the catholic church mimics islam in many way's, except for one very, very important differance, it don't send it's followers out to kill and slaughter others who disagree with it's teachings.... Maybe during the crusades it did, but the times have changed and islam needs to change as well, or the crusades just might come back in a way that will bring all religions to their knees.

Submitting....
