He won't reply, kman, because he can't

in response to reader comment: Would you care to give me the verse you say you quote from "my Old testament"?

Hello kman ~

I've read more than a few of your posts, and I'm more and more impressed.

While the Old Testament does indeed command killing, it was never instructed based on "disbelief" - but , for example, exactly as you state, to eliminate such wonderful practices such as child sacrifice, rape, incest, etc. Neither did the Old Testament ever proclaim Paradise as the reward, nor that it was "the acheivement supreme" (such as the Qur'an advocates).

Little by little, hopefully, through education more followers of Islam will realize Truth.
