    Sad

    Western media speaks to people like they are toddlers. Just like in Disney movies, there is a good guy, and a bad guy. The good guy is pure good, and the bad guy is pure evil. The problem with oversimplifying things in this manner is that it is dehumanizing. How can a quarter of...

    Why So Much Hate?

    I'm the last person you would expect to take up for Islam. I'm a Polytheist with an extreme dislike of Monotheism in general. I think missionary work should be outlawed. The phrase "do you have a moment for Jesus?" or "Allah is most merciful!" gets you the middle finger from me...

    I have a few Muslim friends I saw how the media

    was portraying their religion and it disgusted me. I learned more about the religion through my friends it's not something I believe in but I find it interesting.

    My best friend is Muslim

    and I can tell she gets so frustrated with the way people outside of Islam perceive it. It makes me upset too and I'm a Christian. Just because your beliefs aren't the same as someone else does not mean you have the right to disrespect it. Do better. Be better.

    It's a shame. The media is part to blame

    and radical Muslims are part to blame. Most of us are lovely :-) we believe in the oneness of God and we believe in the messenger of God and realise Islam means peace from the word سلام in Arabic.
