Reader comment on item: [Moderate] Voices of Islam
in response to reader comment: Ugly face of Islam

Submitted by Ben (United States), Apr 22, 2007 at 03:00

Any religion that states that it alone is the ONLY true religion and that good people of other religions are Hell bound is an evil religion and is not of God. This is true of all three of the Abrahamic religions,especially the fundementalist branches of Christianity and all of Islam.

If Muslims want to be seen as progressive and possesing a religion of reason,peace, and hope then they must abandon their elitist interpretation of the Koran and stop viewing Hindus,Buddhists,and people of other faiths as inferior and less spiritual.

Hinduism,Buddhism,Taoism,and various pagan religions throughout the world do not have such exclusivist views towards people of other faiths. Islam and fundementalist Christiantiy lags far behind these religions in it's tolerance and acceptance of ALL of God's children.
