in response to reader comment: Moderate Muslims...What Moderate Muslims?

Submitted by Kim Bruce (Canada), Feb 17, 2011 at 01:52

Good Christians promote peace, avoid confrontations, can take a punch and smile at the attacker and say "I forgive you". A good Christian goes to church to pray and not just be seen as the hypocrites do. A good Christian prays in private and doesn't splay himself on the streets so all can see him, as the hypocrites do. A good Christian is a charitable one as well and many times will give the robber their coat as well as their shirt off their back because they realize these are just material things and there is much more than just this material world in which we live. A good Christian will not take a life intentionally but they will defend the ones they love and cherish. A good Christian values life but fears not death because he knows that beyond this veil there is a peace that only he knows personally.

A good Jew is in many ways like a Christian. They value peace. They value democracy. They are forgiving and they are charitable. They value life and will give it gladly for those they love.

A good Muslim on the other hand is the exact opposite. They value death more than life and will give it to kill many others for the sake of their god and their prophet. They will even offer up the ones they love for the same. They pray in the streets as the hypocrites do. They believe in blood sacrifices and bathe in blood by cutting their heads and bodies with their swords. A good Muslim would rather be ruled than enjoy freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom to express his spiritual creativity that is god-given.

A good Muslim is the anti-thesis of a good Christian. ...
