Don't impute to me what I didn't write!

"If you ... really believed I have the give right according to the United States Constitution to express how I see the Universal Force from the point of view of which I understand it."

I never denied you that. You're free to say whatever nonsense comes into you head, as I am free to point out what's wrong with it. Don't accuse me of what I didn't do.

"...how can you tell me what's right or wrong when I have never imposed my views on you just asked you to further investigate."

You made assertions which you want your readers to accept as true. Just by writing them, you are imposing them on your readers. Since I see at least some as false, and can bring clear proofs that they are, I decided to answer you.

You have no more legitimate complaint to my expressing my views, than I have to yours. But what we both have is the right to criticize the other, if we want, and as you have done to Dr Pipes. (you dont' see him whining, do you) If you are going to write in public, you have to be willing to deal with criticism. If not, too bad.

And as for "investigation," I have investigated Islam, and found I want nothing to do with it, for far more reasons than I've given here.

"I am very comfortable within my skin"

No one is complaining about your skin, within which you have no reason to be uncomfortable. This isn't about your skin, it's about an ideology that is oppressive and racist. Why a Black man would choose Islam, when it has caused so much suffering for Blacks, is beyond me.
