"Islam" needs to find a religion of truth and love towards fellow mankind - Jesus Christ.

I bite my tongue when responding to someone like you who has commented vast ignorance on all religions you comment on.

Do a little more study than just your circle of friends or the current campus bad boys who sport some fashion of bandana tied around the currently fashionable length of hair.

The Muslims believe in whatever is convenient depending on current affairs & level of power within any country they reside. Note that the level of power indicates what level of militancy they practice. In the Middle East where they exercise almost total power (RE: Iran), the level of militancy reigns highest. There they practice horrors and tortures unprecedented in whatever regime they might have replaced.

In western countries, Islam is enjoying a recent height of acceptance from the latest most popular group-think. Here in the U.S. Muslims have pretty much stuck to themselves until the last decade because they had no power base. That has always been the game plan. You can practice whatever is popular for now, but watch with your eyes open.

The Hindus believe in a god for every blade of grass under the sun, including the sun god. The poor and impoverished listen to a religion that puts a guilt trip on them - they deserve their present status because they were bad in their former life. That works out really ducky for those born to privilege. Meanwhile the desperate sacrifice the ashes of their dead and scant food supplies to the rivers they drink from and bathe in.

"Christianity" as it is commonly followed has been diluted down to a more comfortable living style than Jesus Christ ever had any intention of for his followers. He predicted that his true believers would dwindle in number right down to the last one. Meanwhile the religions of rage, hate, and fear will dominate for a short period and enjoy easy growth attributed to easy expression of repressed hatreds and terror.

Do a little reading on all three religions you posted on. You have no idea at all what any of them stand for.
