WELL, NOT REALLY WRONG......

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama and Islam: An Ongoing Saga
in response to reader comment: Wrong again Daniel...

No, Donvan, I wasn't wrong on the Abraham issue. You had indicated an unfamiliarity with the term "Abrahamic religions" and so I endeavored to explain the reference. The Islamic holy book, the Qu'ran, is really little more than a thinly-veiled plagiarized version of the Bible, hence the inevitable connections between the two documents. And I should point out that I am not a defender of Islam, nor an admirer of the Islamic faith. In fact, I'm not a fan of religions in general but I embrace a "live and let live" philosphy; if the Muslims [Chistians, Hindus...etc.] don't bother me, I don't bother them.
