Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by Steven McDonald (United Kingdom), Jul 19, 2005 at 09:09

How can anyone ever justify killing innocent people simply because they do not follow the same religion?? Also, how can anyone justify Islamic laws where women are repressed, people are stoned to death and basic civil rights are denied?? Can't anyone see that?? Religion is behind almost all wars. I hope that one day the human race scraps the idea of religion and simply concentrates on helping and respecting each other, instead of these fictional "gods" that are thought up!!
