Islam is peace, NOT

Reader comment on item: [Mosque Mischief and] Counting Mosques

Submitted by Penny Hughes (United States), Feb 4, 2003 at 16:29

I wish Bush would stop referring to Islam as a peaceful religion , especially, in the face of overwhelming evidence that it is anything but peaceful, at this time in history. He has made it too comfortable for Muslims to continue denial and forestall an overdue reformation. His verbalized tolerance of intolerance gives no one clarity or safety.
If the Catholic church can endure public criticism for pedophile priests associated with it, Islam can acknowledge terrorist within its mosques . Nothing makes it any different or more exempted as a religious organization. And, if Islam is to be comfortable on our democratic soil, they need to replace rage with introspection and honesty when criticized.
