Torture? lie? corrupt? steal? What so muslims only do that is it? What about the americans? what about the jews? come on think before you speak. When muslims fight for islam, they fight in the name of allah. This means that they only fight if people are fighting against them.

For example when the americans started war on iraq. How can you call that wrong? Muslims fight for the purpose of saving other muslims, and once america leave iraq, for example, then that is it. They are not expected to continue fighting against them as revenge is wrong.

I know what you are thinking. Even so, there are many who still kill innocent people etc, but that does not mean it is the religions fault, it is the individual people. Islam is truly a religion of peace. Does one ordinary christian man who randomly decides to burn down mosques represent all christians? Would you then call christianity a violent religion?

Hey no one said heaven is a place for hate, i don't know where you are getting all this information from. muslims are not brought up to hate, you have got it all wrong. they are brought up to love. They are also brought up to defend their religion, which for some reason, you think is wrong. Do you not defend your family when someone does something to them? If you did, would it be right to call you corrupt and violent?

I went to a catholic school, and the way the christians treat the bible in that school is ridiculous. How can you call it a religion of love when your own people do not even learn to love and respect the bible? am i generalising these people to all christians or is it right to blame all christians for this?

Can i ask you something? im not trying to disrespect you or tell you that your religion is wrong, i just wanted to ask, If god is the father why is he the son also? I never understood the trinity when i learnt it in school, i mean i understood it, but it does not make sense, i dont think it ever made sense to anyone i knew. If God came down as a human, the why is it he was tempted by the devil when the bible also says that God can not be tempted by the devil, yet it contradictis itself by saying that he was tempted by the devil? I am not judging, just asking.
