in response to reader comment: Is Allah God

Submitted by Golden (United States), Jun 30, 2009 at 15:04

The right to except or dismiss the notion of a deity is ironically a God given privilege. The idea of acknowledging something you do not believe to be truthful or legitimate is a compromise of your own belief. If you want to believe in Allah, go for it, but don't cry about it when others will not. Christianity and Judaism existed long before Islam and many other current world religions of today, so it is juvenile and naive to characterize history as fabrication because it does not fit a personal ideology. The bottom line is that acceptance of one another's belief systems should not be the platform of peace. The fact that we share an equal right in the eyes of God to be who we want to be, and believe what we want to believe should be enough. Is Allah God, to many yes, to me absolutely not.
