While working as a security guard for a local auto auction in 2002 I came across a water soaked Quran in the back of a pickup truck that was brought in for a sale and stored in my lot. I opened it to 3 different pages and found passages that called on Muslims to kill Christians, Jews and Infidels …there was no searching an index or skimming through to find these passages I just opened the Quran to Three different pages and there they were .. passages of hate. Now I would be curious to see actually how many references there really are depicting violence to these groups. I find after reading about the Muslim faith that you can be killed for converting to another faith, that in many Muslim countries there is no freedom of religion …. This strikes me as odd because it tells me that the Muslim faith can not stand on it's own merits. Then I read here of the love of Allah and how the Muslim faith is a faith of peace … somehow it does not seem to ring true. Not saying there isn't hate in the Christian bible … because there is. But maybe if there really is a God just maybe it is time to see if he can stand on his own two feet or not, because a real God would not need his followers to carry out his fights, or be a defender of the "Faith"
