Time for you to get a clue, Vicki. And luckily for you, I offer them at no charge!

"I have read parts of the Koran and it is nothing of the likeness of this email."

You've read PARTS of the Koran. You have not read the entire work. Nor have you studied the rest of the Islamic teachings. You are clearly unaware of the many violent verses in the Koran, all of which supercede any earlier peaceful ones. Scholars who know the Koran inside out have generously explained this for people like you on this very forum. Try doing research before opening your mouth. Otherwise, you are not entitled to an opinion on the matter.

"These emails are quite harmful as it adds more fuel to the fire of hate."

On the contrary, what these emails add is truth and awareness. Reality. Things that people who prefer to dwell in ignorance fear, because it forces them to look outside their Kumbayah Cocoon and sniff the unpleasant truths of the world we live in.

"The Koran is not at all hateful."

The Koran (and Islam itself) is extremely hateful, violent, and depraved. Time for you to open your eyes, Vicki, and stop looking only at those things that conveniently keep you living in ignorance of the truth. You are delusional in the extreme if you truly believe that Islam is not hateful, because reality and history proves you wrong.

"It is like saying cults that are Christian based are actually Christians."

An extremely erroneous lapse of logic. We've already covered this fallacy many times. Pay attention.

"People kill in the name of God daily."

Wrong, Vicki. People kill daily in the name of Allah. Not God. Can you show us the last time someone strapped explosives to his child's chest and instructed the child to blow up a cafe full of innocent people in the name of God (the Christian God)? Or perhaps you care to share with us the last time a group of Christians decided to fly airplanes into skyscrapers, killing thousands? Tell us, Vicki, when was the last time a bunch of Catholics strafed a city with indiscriminate scud missiles simply because they hated the people living there? Have any Lutherans planted IEDs in a public market lately? Do you recall any time when Mormons went on a rampage of hate and violence and burned churches, murdered nuns, arsoned and raped, over a couple of Jesus cartoons in order to "defend Christianity"?

See, Vicki? .... All this violence and killing is being done in the name of Allah, in the name of Islam, by Muslims.

"We need to know there are differences in lifestyles, religions, and become tolerant in love."

Don't feed me that Bliss Bunny New Age nonsense. America, Britain, Israel - they are all very tolerant of the Muslims who come to their countries to live. Those Muslims enjoy the same rights, the same freedoms, the same acceptance as anyone else. Quite the contrary in the medieval, backwards, barbaric Islamic countries where it is a crime to even practice a religion outside Islam, where it is a crime to own a Bible or Torah, where it is a crime to wear a crucifix. If you want to preach tolerance get off your backside, take a plane ride over to Saudi Arabia or Iran and see first hand who needs to start becoming "tolerant in love".

I for one will not tolerate a ...cult that is hell bent on destroying all the happiness and freedom I enjoy on the greatest country on earth.

"It saddens me to think that just because my nieces read a different teaching, THEY are hated."

They're hated because they are contributing to the destruction of not only America, but of Western culture, freedom, and tolerance in general... You do your nieces a disservice by allowing them to be indoctrinated into the single most violent cult on the planet.... Sounds to me like your nieces have already brainwashed you and made you into (to borrow a Soviet quote) a "useful idiot". You're here defending a cult which you know nothing about. Congrats on being a willing pawn against your own culture. Shame on you!
