Islam is cool...lets all join!

Reader comment on item: Al-Qaeda Invites Me to Join Its Ranks

...You mean after that personalized invitation from the leaders of a modern and stable culture that you're considering anything OTHER than joining? Surely not...thats just crazy talk.

I mean..really now, where else are you going to be enfolded into a brotherhood that welcomes people of every religion and engages in theological dialog amongst scholars. It's not like Islamic countries ban other religions or their holy books--like some christian nations I could mention.

Being the religion of peace, your children would grow up with the freedom of open thought and to explore their own personal interests---not forced into rooms like other dog-religions that just have them chant & rock themselves into mind-numbing stupor with nary any educational reading materials in sight other than that from which they chant.....where kids are safe to play everywhere likeminded people exist and never have to worry about their mothers getting publically murdered because her skin had seen the light of day.

Be at peace with the knowledge that you join a fine and proud group of followers that is mature in thought and will never devolve into rock-chunking in the streets or blowing up the busses of those that feed you like the Jews do. They would never kill people in the name of a god or religion like every one else on the planet does.

..............................wait a minute......I seem to have everything exactly backwards............
