i am only replying to your post out of forum courtesy, however, your post is chock full of ignorance of Islam, that other than spiraling into an argument against an islamophobe - which is an anti-boredom hobby for me - there really isn't much to be said to dignify it...

I will say that you should be more hesitant to put words in people's mouths...for example, i wasn't portraying Muhammad as either peaceful or unpeaceful...

nor did i say hadith are not to be trusted...speaking of which, there are over 30 categories by which hadith are classified...can you name, say, 10 off the top of your head...

i didn't think you could either...lol

lastly, there is nothing wrong with not being a pacifist, and it is clear Jesus, who one could assume extolled peace as a virtue, was not pacifist...

no pacifist would remark: "i come not to bring peace, but a sword"
no pacifist would beat anyone with a whip
no pacifist would order their follower to carry weapons
