Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims
in response to reader comment: Reinterpreting the Quran

Submitted by moderate Muslim (United States), May 1, 2007 at 18:11

I would like to point out that the person that the legion of doom and the others know as Moderate Muslim is not this guy. Just making that clear. I am "moderate Muslim", and I do not want everybody to get screwed up trying to figure out who is who. So i'll be moderate Muslim 1 and you can be Moderate Muslim 2. Ok?

Just dont want to get everyone confused.

PS- I believe that the Quran is being misinterpreted by some radicals. However, i would not use the word reinterpreting because that says that we are interpreting differently from the original way it was interpreted. I would rather we stop misinterpretation than reinterpret what has been interpreted correctly.

I used some form of the word interpret way too many times just now.

Thank you
