Dear Barbara,

It doesn't matter what you read but what matters what you absorb from it. I don't know which news you are talking about. If you refer to cartoon controversy Muslims are united to protect their values. we Muslims take our religion seriously. We are not like Christians or Jews They don't care about any insult to their religions. This is very clear.

Jesus one of the genuine messengers of Allah. Jesus, who was Jewish, was not accepted as a messenger by Jews. He didn't lead his nations. How could he battle? He killed by Roman Soldiers ( according to Christians. We Muslims don't believe that he was crucified)

Christianity, based on teachings of Paul, became state religion 300 years after his death.

I don't know how do you compare Jesus with Muhammed, peace be upon him, Jesus is not founder of Western society, based on secular state where church has no power on law.

Lately I was reading the life of Mother Teresa

"According to "Mother" Teresa, suffering is good. "Mother" Teresa (who herself, it should be noted, had checked into some of the finest and costliest clinics and hospitals in the West during her bouts with heart trouble and old age) once gave this game away in a filmed interview. She described a person who was in the last agonies of cancer and suffering unbearable pain. With a smile, "Mother" Teresa told the camera what she told this terminal patient: "You are suffering like Christ on the cross. So Jesus must be kissing you" (Hitchens, p. 41)."

What a brutal heart "Mother" Teresa had. I am shocked. Have you stayed long enough in a hospital? How much pain can you endure? I had a knee surgery. I know what real pain is. The nurse who stops your pain with the injection is everything for you. If someone can say that suffering is good for you that means for me he/she is a mentally sick person. Who can be feel better if someone suffers? What a ugly face she has like her heart. I wonder what she was saying to Christian Serbs while they were making ethnic cleansing on Kosovo, her town?

Her order to baptize dying patients is really crazy idea. In a speech at the Scripps Clinic in California in January 1992, she said: "Something very beautiful... not one has died without receiving the special ticket for St. Peter, as we call it. We call baptism 'a ticket for St. Peter.' We ask the person, do you want a blessing by which your sins will be forgiven and you receive God? They have never refused. So 29,000 have died in that one house [in Kalighat] from the time we began in 1952." It seems that she enjoyed seeing dying people.

Do you see what Christianity doctrine turn a person into a hell's angle? These are consequences of teachings of followers of Jesus, not Jesus himself. Messengers are sent to help people not to cause them to suffer. Any man-made theory fails at the end. But people who knows nothing more than titles of media news can continue to believe that she was a saint and she cured a patient with her picture. Why can't saints cure themselves and go to hospital instead of letting Jesus kissing them? Jesus kiss only poor and dying patients not Vatican backed rich saints.

What kind of world are we living? People abuse religion to make the others suffer for their own crazy religious views. They get reward as being saints. I wish I could be a stupid or an ignorant person not to see mistakes of bad people and feel not sorry for what was done for dying patients.
