Why do we have to offend?

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: islamism is fascism

What is it that drives people to offend others? Is it because people do not undestand one another? Because I know how that feels. To be confused by the media and wanting to know the truth. So I went straight to the source. I started dialogue with someone who was a muslim so that I could learn from her and she could learn from her. I now know that Islam is a beautiful religion and my interest in it has brought me a best friend. So for goodness sake, talk to one another. Islamism is not fascism. It is a beautiful way of life for so many people and no one has the right to attempt to harm that.
