in response to reader comment: oh my

Everyone in this world will believe and follow what is in their heart. When the Christian community starts judging and stereotyping other religions, they are doing exactly what Jesus did not want. Jesus excepted people of all backgrounds, prostitutes, gypsies, the poor. The root of these issues is FEAR. Usually what is behind anger, sadness, etc; it is fear. I beleive that the more we try to control people out of fear, the more they will fight for there own beleifs. I completely agree that America has no ownership over any country and therefor should not be trying to convert people to the way America is. That's what makes the world unique. I believe there are extremists in all religions and by saying that because of what some do, all are the same.
