RE: Moravian

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Untrustworthy

My country which is predominantly Muslim has many churches, and a couple of Jewish temples (maybe more). People of different religions are allowed to practice their religions freely. I do know many Christians have exaggerated isolated incidents against them in order to gain religious asylum to other countries in search for better jobs, as you know America in particular has attracted immigrants of all races and creeds over the years as it seems to be the Land of Opportunity to many. Many Muslim countries are poor as a couple of posters here love to make fun of this sad fact. I never knew being poor was a sin - being a Christian I'm sure you'd agree - being poor isn't a crime.

If Christians were so downtrodden in Muslim countries, then why is one of the richest and most powerful men in my country a Christian?

My reply:
"I am Muslim and I call on Muslims to stop attacking the Danish people".

If you would just take the time to see what our Prophet (pbuh) taught us about religious tolerance and learn a bit about Islamic history, you would see that Islam never encouraged violence against anyone for having a different religion. A lovely documentary to see is "Islam, Empire of Faith".
