Not born a muslim

Maybe by your beliefs all are born muslim, not mine. I was born into a Christian family and chose to remain so by my own adult beliefs and values. I did not stray into my beliefs and I could NEVER be forced, led or coerced into following teachings that condone and praise such animal like behavior towards others in the name of ANY religion. To say I am a muslim who strayed by circumstances is a joke! To say a god who condones murder would be the one who would lead me back is truly histerical.

Yes, I may be an alchohol drinking, pork eating infidel, but at least I am not a murderous barbarian hiding behind the excuse of religion. Me a muslim? No I am far too civilized for that.
