Let's get it straight

Reader comment on item: Islamic Law at Belmont U

Submitted by JustMe (United States), Apr 24, 2006 at 13:23

Quote by John Spragens working for Democratic U.S. Representative Jim Cooper:
"he attacked an entire religion, not a group of fanatics who pervert the religion's teachings."

I'm getting tired of hearing how peaceful Islam is. As for the quote taken from the above article, it's not a group of fanatics perverting Islam. Mohammed, the creator of their religion, also practiced the EXACT same tactics-- behead those who disagree with him. So those being portrayed as fanatics are actually purists. It's the Muslims who try to portray Islam as peaceful who are not following Islam as it was established. So actually, Osama bin Laden and friends are purists and faithful followers of the Islamic religion and anything else is just a watered down version created to keep the negative focus of the world off of them.
