it's all a question of faith

Reader comment on item: Away with Crusaders, Crucifixes, Crosses, and Christmas

Submitted by C (Kuwait), Feb 11, 2006 at 04:24

i am a muslm by birth.
but i do not practice my religion for one reason is that i dont believe in the word "religion" at all.

I beleive that God has sent his many prophets just to remind people that he should be worshiped and loved because he loves us and will reward us according to our actions. But i dont reject the idea of a person beleiving in his/her religion because that's a personal right but i refuse to have one religion trying to impose anything on the other religion whether it is the muslims imposing on christians or vice versa. people are free and when i muslim refuses to wear a certain whatever just because there is a cross on it, well i honestly think that this person is not a strong beleiver, and that he is afraid that his faith will be threatened by this cross when he can simplify the whole issue and just take it as a sign like any other sign that humans created throughout the years!!! is it that hard?

But on the other and, i do object on the drawings, not because they depict the prophet, but because they are insulting him and this is not freedom of press anymore because your limits of freedom stop when you trespass the limits of others (or something like that) in other words you canot just offend people just because you're free!
