Were the KKK Christians? If they were, which I believe the majority of them were, would that make all Christians evil?Or how about the Christians who brang slaves to America and beat them because of their skin color. Since some Christians did do this, would this make make Christianity a bad religion because of what some people did?

Think about that way... since some Muslims are conveying Islam in a bad way, does that make all Muslims bad? Some people in here need to understand no matter what religion, there is always people who are going to kill and do hateful things. So before you judge Muslims, think about how many there are and how were all individuals and have different personalities. People who believe all Muslims are terrorists are ignorant and need to go read a book or something.

The Muslims don't hate Non-Muslims, only a few do and those are for personal reasons. Nothing, I mean nothing in the Qu'ran teaches to kill innoncent people even if they're Non-Muslims, so stop lying! For the people who are lying about reading the Qu'ran and saying it teaches hate, those people are all wrong. This only means you either are making this up or read one of those online Qu'ran which the majority are wrong. Only real Muslims know what the Qu'ran says.

I think people in here should know there are bad people in evey religion whether its Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, and Buddhism. We all should know this before judging the Muslims as one, for those people who are doing this. I'm a Muslim, and I have studied a lot of religions and have respect for each one even if I don't believe in them.

I respect Jesus and we believe in him as Muslims. I don't belive in Buddha,Vishnu, and Shiva, but I don't dare make fun of them and I respect all the people of different religions. People need to understand to respect all religions, thats what most people in here are lacking. My last comment is before you go and judge all Muslims, think about how many there are. You don't see me or other Muslims going around calling all Christians terrorists because of what few people in the KKK did, but thats exactly what you guys are doing to the Muslims.
