    Islam, Judaism and Christianity is not the problem, it is the people who misuse these religions that are the problem and keep the hate and problem alive..

    He obviously doesn't know the history of islam (millions slaugtered and tortured in the name of islam from approximately 600 AD until this very minute) or the quran very well because he left out the part in the quran about killing the Jews and infidels, in spite of islam being the religion of his father.

    Elsewhere the Quran states [Sura 9:5] "Fight and slay the idolators wherever you find them, and seize them, and besiege them, and lie in wait for them."

    What about the Christian crusades.

    There are dark chapters on both sides ... and prove the point the problem is people who misuse their religion for personal or political purposes.

    That is sheer nonsense. The prophet only had 14 wives.

    Just look at the status of women in most Islamic countries. There is one sect of Islam in Syria that does not believe women have souls. In Saudi Arabia a woman can be punished for speaking to a man who is not her kin. Also just talk to the wives of Americans who have worked in Saudi Arabia. Talk to the service women who have been stationed in Islamic countries about the restrictions placed on their movement.

    Look at the Muslim women in this country shrouded from head to toe.

    CTB's post is ridiculous. Muhammad had a wife that was only 9 years old.

    "The first feminist"...boy, there is nothing you won't twist.

    How about forced arraigned marriages ?

    Forced female circumcision ?

    Made to walk with a veil over their head ?

    What happens to a young muslim woman who decides to leave the faith ?

    And what if, say, she wants to put on a halter top and go have a beer ?

    It's just another pathetic attempt to equate the rest of the world's religions with Christianity.

    And a rather dishonest, uninformed attempt, at that.

    Indeed. The old Crusades excuse brought up again. True history shows the Crusades were started after nearly 500 years of muslims attacking and invading and marauding, slaughering, and raping peoples, farmers, and lands that did not belong to them.

    What about them? They were a series of defensive manuevers brought by years of Muslim attacks.



    If you want to talk about a dark chapter of Christianity, I suppose that you could talk about the Inquisition.

    But even the Inquistion is not comparable to a religion, like Islam, who has no "dark chapter", but is the epitome of darkness in its totality.

    And as for this quote, "Gender equality is an intrinsic part of Islamic belief", I don't know who's responsible for it or who said it, but it clearly comes from an ignorance of Mohammed, the Qu'ran, and the religion of Islam.

    If it were up to some folks, we'd fight the crusades and have an inquisition all over again. Both Christianity and Islam have the blood of millions on their hands. Both the Bible and the Q'uran have bloody verses. The broad brush doesn't apply in either case.

    As to women, none of the partriarchical Abrahamic religions elevate the status of women.

    Islam is not an Abrahamic religion. It is a pagan religion!
