That is not fair or equal

in response to reader comment: Which God?

The tone of your ending comments carry the idea that you think Islam promotes violence. That would be like saying Christianity promoted the Holocaust or supports the ravings of the KKK. Both at one point used religion and the Bible to justify their own very radical ideology. Just because someone does something in the name of Islam, Chirstianity, or Judaism or any other civil religion does not make those religions at fault. I feel that radicals in any situation come about because people feel that their voice and ideas are not being heard. And it is easy to dismiss the thoughts of a group we make them feel like they are SO very different from the larger community. The person said, "GOD is LOVE", what kind of relationship to you have with your G-D that would cause you to argue with that.
