Jesus v Muhammad

Reader comment on item: Q&A: Remaking a Religion
in response to reader comment: Jesus - a stickman?

Submitted by katie (Tanzania), Jan 31, 2011 at 23:23

Jesus was a gentle loving man,those who followed him did so freely with admiration,unlike the fear Muhammad instilled in his followers. Jesus had no interest in wealth & use of slaves, he treated everyone as worthy & equal. He did not discriminate between,men,women,prostitutes, homosexuals or non believers.

The two men were complete opposites,one peace loving the other a warmonger full of greed for the spoils taken from his victims. Muhammad was a man of today & could be found in any dictator around the world right now, everything he did was dressed up as 'faith'.

Muhammad never gave up his own life for principle, unlike Jesus, he had others do it. for his gain & he gave rewards to those who did............think about it.

As for the Bible, being written later,, I know not how long or when it was written, but the Koran took 300 years & is in no way a story,just snippets of recollections by Aisha & others, stuck together,much of the cruelty has been omitted. Love is barely mentioned in the Koran,but hate is spread throughout.

Comparing the two religions is like comparing chalk with cheese
