Let me start off by saying I don't know why you would copy/paste the sentence 'as an orthodox christian' to begin with. I was just pointing it out, and if it was a mistake, I apologize for thinking you were lying. Yes, I have witnessed lying first hand by muslims...more lying than I care for. Taqqiyah..isn't that what it's called?

There is no was to prove it's false? Prove that it isn't. Just because someone wrote down the rantings of an illeterate child molester doesn't make it true. There are such things as fiction novels you know.

My religion is important to know eh? Well R, I am pagan. My religion is natural. I worship nature..things that can be seen and touched.

And no, I wasn't just looking for 'the slightest bit of proof' that what muslims say is wrong. I don't need to look for lies, anyone with compassion and respect for humanity and lives, no matter the religion, knows how wrong and irrational muslims act. Any little thing to make them mad, and suddenly people die, property is destroyed and there are death threats and demands for executions galore. It's not right to act in such a manner today..we are civilized..at least the western societies are. What would you think of me if I went and killed an imam because he said something I didn't agree with? What would you think of me if I went and demanded your execution just because you mad me upset? What would you think of me if I made an effigy of muhammod and burned it because I heard one of your people say they hated America? You would think I was a lunatic, wouldn't you?

I won't apologize for the way I view Islam. It's the irrational people that use your religion to justify murder, chaos and terror tactics who are to blame.

For the record, I don't care for many religions R. Chritians included. I think it is wrong to impose your beliefs on anyone. That is why I let my children go to church with friends if they want to. I want them to make up their minds on their own, not force MY bleiefs on them. They do go once in awhile with their friends and they also go to ritual ceremonies with me when they want to. Freedom of Religion R..that is one of the beautiful things about my country and in Europe..we have that freedom and we don't have to worry about being hung in the middle of a town or being beheaded if we choose to convert to another religion.

I don't care what someone believes in or not..as long as they don't try to force theie views on me or my family. As long as they don't threaten my children into conversion...that kind of behavior went out hundreds of years ago in most of the world. Think about what happens everytime a person/group/government has tried to impose things on others..what happens R is those people fight back. Muslims need to understand that if they choose to live in Europe, there is a certain bit of change in attitudes that they must have to live there peacefully with the natives of those countries. Honor killings, riots, collecting welfare and then demanding change after change in the way of life for the people who built those countries is unacceptable. Those are EUROPEAN countries and R, let me say this..they are going to STAY European. No matter how many death threats and protests you people have there is going to change that.
