Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by dbunker (United States), Oct 28, 2006 at 00:24

Islam is just another "me too" religion. It teaches that Judaism and Chistianity "had it" wrong and that Mohammed came around and fixed everything with his teachings. Teachings that seem to invoke fear. Actions such as prayer a certain number of times per day, always replying with "peace be with him" when his name is mentioned. What is this, some sort of obsessive compulsive religion where if you fail to say or do something you will be condemned? Is this what God wanted? Come on, get real.

To suggest that God made a mistake with Judaism, then messed up agin with Christianity, and then finally got it right with Islam implies God made blunders. Please, get real. We've seen it happen over and over. David Koresh heard voices, Joseph Smith heard voices. Mohammed heard voices. They all had visions, dreams. etc. never before foretold or prophesized. Jesus was clearly prophesized int the Old Testament. The prophesies were fulfilled and He never made any reference to Islam (or any other religion) waiting around the corner. Jesus is the beginning and the end.
