... If truth must be told you can't use the stupidity of some people to use religion as the basis for their action and apply to every one. Are you saying by implications that nobody has used Islam in a way that protrayed it in bad light? Read the Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie and you'll understand why the fatwa was placed on his head. There is no religion other than Hiduism that's as peaceful as Christianity. Islam to me is expression of violence. Check out all the trouble spots around the world and you will find Islam. Name it, Pakistan, Afghanistan the Middle East etc I can go on and on. These are people who by all means are trying to live in the 21st century with stone age ideology.
