You're welcome, although it's very awkward doing that and I wouldn't suggest it to anyone. I see that you love your prophet very much and that's commendable. And our differences on whether Jesus is a prophet or the Son of God will just have to remain. I see it as a huge downgrade to go from Son of God to prophet, although prophets are very important, but it shouldn't become some sort of barrier that keeps people hating eachother.

My concern is for the people capitalizing on these differences and bringing death and destruction to the world. Hopefully, someone will figure out what is making young Muslims go down the terrorist path so easily, and then hold these people defiling your religion responsible for crimes against humanity. Are there Imam's defiling your religion? I don't know if there are studies on this, but there should be. I noticed when I was following the story of the young Iranian man who drove his SUV through a crowd of fellow college students that he had been in the U.S. most his life (I believe) but he had just started reading the Qu'ran three years ago. This guy was well educated. How can this brainwashing occur to someone like him? Any theories?

p.s. Sorry for getting your name and gender wrong in an earlier post.
