in response to reader comment: Why Christians hate Muslims.....

I am looking forward to when the western world, mainly the U.S., has alternative fuels in use. When we eleminate our dependence on middle eastern oil we will stop the flow of a large amount of money into countries that support radical islam.

It cannot be denied that iran and other oil rich middle eastern countries fund terrorist muslim groups that do not practice the true religion of islam. They have a intolerant and unreasonably violent perversion of islam that they adhere to. Once the flow of money and weapons stops, they will weaken and eventually disperse.

I cannot understand how the islamic radicals think that the killing of anyone who is an "infidel" is somehow endorsed by their religion. Anyone who is educated in islam knows that it is not. Modern Christianity does not support the murder of people just because they do not share our religious beliefs. As far as I know, the only major religion that has such a violent following is islam. So it is not hard to understand why people are fearful of it. What disappoints me is that the moderate muslims who are peaceful are not speaking out in outrage over the behavior of the radical muslims. I would speak out if someone were twisting my religion to suit their violent behavior. All I see from CAIR and the other muslim relations groups is finger pointing at everyone else. The moderates need to show some backbone and speak out if they want the respect that they feel they are lacking.
