Reader comment on item: Television in Time of War

Dear Brother Pipes,

To me, a controversial subject such as Islam should be debated on TV, especially by someone as astute as you on the subject. I find it mistaken on your part not to confront Islamist. After all, the [radicals] are at the forefront of Islam.

... I always accept any challenge from any religious group. Each one [thinks] "their religion" is the correct religion and all others are wrong. In this article I also find that you seem to get frustrated and angry. If I am correct, this is [your] matter of conscious by allowing yourself to be intimidated. Anger only breeds anger. If I am wrong in my diagnosis, I apoligize.None the less, you should confront any and all radical Islamist on TV, radio, etc. The world needs to know the truth about Islam and especially from Muslims who [appear] to be "peaceful" in their demur. Being "wolves in sheeps clothing" is how Islamists are being elected to office in our governments.

As for me, I enjoy pointing out the descripencies of their Qur'an just as I do about the Torah and the Christian Bible.

Thank you for time taken reading this email.


Rev. Dr. Lowell Byrd
