Can u show me the verses from the Quran where it is so violent? The ones u are talking about on this post. I want to see that you make statements with its evidence. Or else, everyone should believe me when I say I ate breakfast with Elvis at my home.
Despite the web address - this site deals with explaining how Islams three holy books work together, and the violent inclinations in them (before you comment on 'violent inclinations' - at least have a read of it)
I would point out that in many nations where Islam gains enough followers, civil war breaks out soon afterwards. There are a number of nations around the world currently with this type of civil war within their borders.
I would also point out that where muslims gain a sufficient foothold, they often try to impose sharia law.
And also that - where muslims are dominant, non-muslims are treated as second class citizens (every muslim will admit this is the case)
It is also the only religion that can/does impose a death sentence against muslims who convert to another religion.
It is also the only religion that is likely to kill you for making fun of their prophet...or for political convenience of the Satanic Verses.
It is also the only major religion whose founder
commanded his followers to convert by the sword (for the combative people out there - whatever his followers did, Jesus never commanded that, and actually preached co-operation, peace and turning the other cheek)
It is also the only religion that makes excuses for men raping women, and in many ways, blames women for men raping them.
You will find that a common Islamic teaching divides the world into 'the abode of Islam' and 'the abode of war', and there will only be peace when the whole world is 'the world of Islam' (very deluded there - they will no doubt come up with some excuse why it isn't so, if it ever happens)
And while I think there are plenty of peaceful Muslims - in a world of 1 Billion & growing Muslims, even 10% with violent religios bents equals 100,000,000 of such. And by the way, around 10% of Muslims are actually considered to be 'extremists'
While I personally think most religions are deserving of respect - this is one religion that I think is very ugly...hiding behind a peaceful facade, and also behind the ignorance of westerners who think it like any other religion, without ever really bothering to look into it.
