You asked: "why did you stop at Muslims killing Jews? what about Jews killing muslims now?"

I did not quit at Muslims killing Jews to insult or somehow make it seem that is where it ends. But I am curious as to why you say 'Jews killing Muslims..now' . Is this a new occurence? I know there has been many deaths between Israel and Muslim countries. And if this were a 'new' thing, Jews killing Muslims, all I would be able to say to that is 'It's about damn time they fought back'. But of course that's not the case.

The point I was making is it seems the three large religions, the ones most in the world know of and at least know a little about, are the ones that continue to kill and contine to hide behind their holy books when doing so. All the while shouting..we are a religion of peace and love thy neighbor and blah blah. It's hard for me to believe in any religion that does this.

Like the man who converted from Islam to Christianity..his crime? Conversion? Not converting back to Islam? His probable punishment? Death. And for what? Who has he harmed by converting? Is Islam going to crumble because of one man denouncing his birth religion? I know it is the radicals who kill and claim it is for Allah they commit these crimes.

I think it is up to the Muslims who do not condone these acts to stand up and be heard. Yes, Muslims kill Muslims..we do see this on the news EVERY SINGLE DAY. And I am not sure which is more unbelieveable...people of the same religion killing each other or people of one religion killing people of another..because of religious differences. All three of these religions claim to be in the service of God..no matter the name that religion calls theri God..it seems they are all pretty much the same being/entity/ whatever..so many deaths for this God..where do you suppose the killed go? How about the killers? If I believed in Heaven and Hell, I would bank on it that Hell is getting pretty darn full by now.

I hope you do not think me disrespectful, I am not trying to be. Just giving you a glimpse of what it looks like to us who are on the pagan side.

Peace and safety to you
